Storyline

Having identified one of Lumen's attackers, Cole Harmon, Dexter set out to do what he does best. He attends one of Jordan Chase's seminars and the plan is to rent a hotel room next to Cole Harmon, who is Chase's head of security, and eliminate him there. He shows Lumen how to prepare a killing room but events don't quite unfold as planned. In the end, Dexter gets a vital clue that identifies another of the men who attacked her. Lumen also has to deal with her ex-fiancé who suddenly shows up in Miami. At the station, the fallout from the shootings at the night club begins to take its toll. It's pretty obvious that Lt. Laguerta isn't going to take the rap for the botched operation. Debra sees the writing on the wall when Angel Batista tells her he hasn't written his report yet and is still going over what happened. She feels betrayed by an unexpected source but also gets support where she least expects it. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[first lines]
Jordan Chase: [v.o. violent animal imagery in black and white] We are born primal. Conceived with the impulse to fight for what we desire. It's written in our genes. It's engraved in our souls. But we've traded the wilderness for pavement, trees for skyscrapers. We've lost touch with our instincts, with what we are. We have fallen from nature's grace.
Jordan Chase: [on stage, to crowd] But we shall be delivered!
[audience cheers]
Jordan Chase: [amplified over crowd] It's time to tap into your primal selves and seize the power ...

Scape Goat
10 July 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter participates of Jordan's Chase's seminar and is invited to visit him in his suite. LaGuerta does not assume her mistake and Debra becomes her scape goat. Lumen receives an unexpected phone call and meets her ex-fiancé in a restaurant in Miami. Dexter plans a scheme with Lumen to catch Cole in the hotel and he asks Lumen to buy plastic and other stuff. Liddy forces a car crash at the parking area of a supermarket to get Lumen's personal data. Dexter is forced to go to Jordan's stage to tell what he felt when he found Rita dead. Meanwhile, Cole sees Lumen and she flees to her room. However Dexter saves Lumen and their room becomes Cole's kill room. While leaving the hotel, Dexter meets Jordan and makes an important discovery. Later, Liddy takes photos of Dexter and Lumen in the boat dumping Cole's remains in the water.

In "Take It!, Dexter gets rid of another rapist and finds a clue of who might be another attacker. Debra is used as scape goat by LaGuerta. Dexter's secret life is in danger with the snoopy Liddy. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Vá Pegar" ("Go to Take It")
