The song played at the nightclub when Quinn is drinking is from brazilian DJ Malboro. It's called "Som de preto". The lyrics "É som de preto / de favelado / mas quando toca / ninguém fica parado" means "It's black's sound / from the slums / but when it plays / nobody stands still". See more »


Dexter stages two bodies to protect Lumen, but the sex game scenario does nothing to explain the initial pool of blood or the blood trail leading to the bodies. See more »

Dexter Morgan: [narrating] I've always tried to keep the different parts of my life separate. Becoming a father made that much more difficult. And as a husband, I failed. But I'm a very neat monster, who won't make the same mistake again.

Black Humor, Drama, Thriller and … Masuka
8 July 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Lumen changes her appearance wearing black wig and make-up on her face. Meanwhile Dexter captures the homosexual serial-killer Lance Robinson and when he is ready to kill him, he receives a phone call from Lumen telling that she is in Miami and has just killed one of the men that raped her. Dexter injects a drug in Lance, puts him in the trunk of his truck and heads to the warehouse where Lumen is. Soon he realizes that the man was not dead and has vanished. Debra prepares and operation with the other cops in the nightclub to ambush the Fuentes brothers. However they are summoned to the warehouse to investigate a call from prostitutes that had overheard shots in the area. Dexter is also requested to go and he needs to find Lumen's victim first. When Lance flees from his truck and the police arrive at the spot, his situation is extremely complicated.

"Everything Is Illumenated" is a great episode that combined black humor with drama and thriller. Lumen shots the man in a hunch and Dexter is concerned with the possibility that her victim is an innocent man. But the situation is resolved thanks to the flamboyant Masuka. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Tudo por Lumen" ("Everything for Lumen")
