Deb faces her first day as the homicide squad's Lieutenant. She isn't sure she's made the right decision given that she not used to the administrative side of the job and the fact that she is also supervising her now ex-boyfriend Quinn. She also has to deal with Captain LaGuerta who seems to want to do both her new and her old job. The police find another body on the shore. The dead woman may have been a prostitute but it's her missing tooth that sends Dexter to an old scrap book. He finds a newspaper clipping for a serial killer from Oregon who the press labeled the Tooth Fairy after the fact that he kept a tooth from each of his victims. Masuka shows intern Ryan Chambers some evidence from the Ice Truck Killer case. He also manages to ask her out on a date. Gellar and Marshal meanwhile have taken a jogger prisoner. Marshall tells the man he will have to repent for his sins. Written by garykmcd

Dexter investigates the crime scene where a prostitute was murdered and he notes that one of her tooth was broken. He recalls his collection of serial-killer cases when he was a teenager in the 80's, more specifically the Tooth Fairy killer from Oregon that has never been caught. He decides to investigate a nursing home nearby the spot and he stumbles with Walter Kenney from Oregon. Debra feels uncomfortable with the direct interference of LaGuerta in her job and she questions whether she made the right decision accepting the position of lieutenant. Marshall and Gellar have abducted a man that was jogging and are preparing him for something.

"Smokey and the Bandit" is an episode where Dexter correlates a murder case with old cases in Oregon. He follows his instincts and suspects of an old man in a nursing home. Debra is facing the difficulties to handle with Quinn and the team of the Miami Metro. What might be the connection of the new intern with the Ice Truck Killer? My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Smokey e Bandit" ("Smokey and Bandit")
