Dexter tries to convince Lumen to return to Minnesota but isn't having much success. She is intent on finding the other men who abused her and kill them and Dexter realizes that perhaps the only way to save her from herself is for him to do the killing for them. When he realizes she has a bead on Boyd Fowler's former prison cell mate - a convicted rapist - he decides to do the deed himself. He quickly realizes however that the man could not have been one of her attackers. Debra meanwhile continues her investigation into the rash of be-headings which lead the police to what may be the killers first victims. Lt.

Dexter Morgan: We all have something to hide; some dark place inside us we don't want the world to see. So we pretend everything's okay, wrapping ourselves in rainbows. And maybe that's all for the best. Because some of these places are darker than others.

Returning to Minnesota
7 July 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter meets Lumen in a coffee shop and tries to convince her to return to Minnesota. Debra has one night stand with Quinn and then she goes with Angel to visit the last victim of Fuentes. She learns that the criminal has a tattoo on his wrist. Angel suspects that LaGuerta is having an affair. Dexter decides to go to Boyd's house to investigate who might be the other rapists but he finds that someone has snooped around before. He finds a fingerprint and discovers that it belongs to Lumen. Dexter believes that the rapist Robert Brunner that shared the same cell of Boyd could be one of the men that raped Lumen. Debra continues her investigation and finds two other victims of Fuentes. Angel surprises LaGuerta in a motel room with Jim McCourt and finds what his wife is doing. Debra discovers that Fuentes' tattoo is actually a stamp from a night club. Dexter convinces Lumen to return to Minnesota and brings her to the airport. Quinn hires a dirty narcotics detective to follow Dexter.

"First Blood" is another good sequel of this great season. Angel's suspicion about his wife shows how insecure he is in his marriage. Dexter believes that he got rid off Lumen but it is a great surprise in the conclusion. Quinn is playing with fire and his fate is intriguing. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "A Primeira Vítima" ("The First Victim")
