Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Lt. Maria LaGuerta (as Lauren Velez)
Harry Morgan (credit only)


Dexter and Lumen are trying to figure out how to get Jordan Chase but Dexter catches on to the fact they have been under video surveillance. He manages to trace the equipment back to Joey Quinn, not realizing that Stan Liddy is behind it all. He and Lumen burglarize Quinn's apartment and find some of the photos of them at the marina. Dexter learns soon enough just who is behind it. Debra meanwhile has pretty well figured out the case and tells her colleagues about her vigilante theory: that the killer is probably the 13th victim who escaped and that she is likely being helped by a man. Lt. Laguerta is dubious however. Jordan Chase has conveniently planned to go to Europe on a speaking tour but not before he lays a trap for Dexter and Lumen. Written by garykmcd

Just after Dexter is kidnapped by Liddy, Lumen walks out of the bedroom of Dexter's apartment and into the kitchen. As she does so there is a light brown leather purse lying flat on the bar stool at the end of the kitchen counter. As she walks past the purse it is suddenly sitting up, then again lying flat in the next shot even though she never touches it. See more »


[first lines]
Jordan Chase: [greeting] Detectives...
Det. Debra Morgan: We appreciate you fitting us in. We wanted to thank you for your phone call regarding Alex Tilden. It was really helpful.
Jordan Chase: That's good to hear.
Det. Debra Morgan: We followed up immediately. We went to his house, but it looked like we had just missed him.
Jordan Chase: Oh, that's unfortunate.
Det. Debra Morgan: Yeah, it is, because he seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth.

The Vigilante and the Surveillance
10 July 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Debra and Quinn go to Jordan Chase's office to interrogate him. Dexter and Lumen try to figure out how they can get Jordan and Lumen suggests to come out as bait to attract him. Dexter finds the surveillance cameras from the Miami Metro and he believes that Quinn is the responsible and he investigates him. Debra has a romantic theory that the 13th victim might be a vigilante helped by her lover to kill the rapists. Debra and Quinn visit Dan's wife and find the connection of Jordan with the missing rapists. Dexter is lured and abducted by Stan Liddy that dopes and takes him in a van. Emily summons Lumen following Jordan's instruction and is murdered by him. Debra gets a court order to arrest Jordan.

"Hop a Freighter" is the best episode of this Season. Dexter follows a wrong investigation regarding the cameras and is surprised by Liddy. Peter Weller performs the real scum and his character is irritating. Debra's theory of the vigilante is very romantic. Will Dexter loosed his better half now that he has found Lumen? My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Sob Vigilância" ("Under Surveillance")
