Storyline

Stuck in the ocean miles from shore, Dexter is rescued by an old boat carrying illegal immigrants to the US. He even manages to render them a service. Once ashore, he heads home hoping to figure out where and when Travis will stage his last tableau. Travis has holed up in a small house and has killed the occupants. While he's away, the police show up and Dexter has something of a surprise waiting for him. Dexter makes it to son Harrison's school recital only to have Travis take the child. Meanwhile, Debra has a plan to catch Travis and gets LaGuerta's support for her plan. Debra also comes to terms with her feelings for Dexter. In his final confrontation with Travis, Dexter has him tied down on his execution table. Someone walks in just as he's committing the deed. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Near the end of the episode, Dexter gets hold of an old sword, used earlier for slashing a man to death on screen. A close-up on the blade clearly shows it's completely flat and blunt, and is likely made out of sheet metal. Also, moments later Dexter is shown pressing a knife against a man's forehead, and the blade bends significantly, revealing it's made out of rubber/plastic. See more »

You've got to be kidding!
6 December 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm going to make this very simple. Picture a 5 Yr. old kid that broke a lamp and it is trying to come up with a lie to get out of it. Now, picture that same mentality writing a screenplay for this series. Think of the ridiculous, contrived, transparent, explanations that 5 yr old might come up with to create a story and to connect events.... I wish the writing and plausibility of this entire season had been that good... Get the picture? If you've ever watched a show, any show, and said to yourself. Huh?? This is not the show for you. Picture the writers sitting around a table, 'Bob' says, hmm we need Dexter to hear a conversation between two Swahili's,,, Ta-Da, Dexter Coincidentally had a Swahili neighbor that secretly taught him to speak fluent Swahili.. Great idea Bob!, the audience is stupid enough to buy that... The whole Season is like that, Incomprehensible!
