Having decided to help Lumen find the other men who attacked her, Dexter is at a loss when he is called to the scene of a road accident. There he finds a pick-up truck that has disgorged its contents - several formaldehyde-laden barrels containing the bodies of dead women. Of course the women are Boyd Fowler's victims Dexter had discovered in the swamp some time before. The truck is registered to a celebrity, motivational speaker Jordan Chase, who claims that his truck was stolen. Dexter is more interested in Chase's head of security, Cole Harmon, who fits Lumen's description of one of her attackers. Debra meanwhile is still on the Santa Muerte case and Lt. Laguerta agrees to a sting operation using their new informant, Yasmine Aragon. It doesn't all go as planned resulting in several deaths. Written by garykmcd

When the men arrive at the swamp where the barrels are that need picking up, they are all in the pickup. After they finish loading the barrels, they are paid off and just walk away. Since Dexter established that this place is out in the middle of nowhere, they would need a ride back. See more »

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

A man wearing a suit hires workers to remove the barrels with the corpses of dead women from the swamp. While he is driving his pickup truck, he is hit by a drunken driver and the barrels are dumped on the road. Dexter is summoned to the spot and he learns that the truck belongs to Jordan Chase, a popular motivational speaker. He comes to the Miami Metro with his security chief Cole Harmon and claims that the truck was stolen. Dexter manages to take a photo of Cole and when he shows it to Lumen, he finds that he is one of the attackers. Meanwhile, Debra, LaGuerta, Angel, Quinn and Manzon prepare a stakeout in the Mayan Club with the informer Yasmine Aragon expecting to arrest Carlos Fuentes. However, LaGuerta takes the command from Debra and the plan goes deadly wrong. Stan Liddy proceeds his investigation of Dexter and Lumen. Dexter breaks into Cole's house and finds an intriguing picture of five men together.

"Circle Us" is the engaging sequel of this season. The stakeout operation in the nightclub will probably bring consequences to the Miami Metro since there are innocent victims. Debra this time has given a magnificent shot in the head of the scum Carlos Fuentes. It seems that the serendipity will help Dexter and lumen to finds the attackers. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Envolva-nos" ("Involve Us")
