The Vigilante and the Surveillance, 10 July 2014
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

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")
