Storyline

Dexter is in awe of the latest display from the Doomsday killer: the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse made up of mannequins and human body parts. Testing confirms that the human parts all came from the same body. Deb Morgan, in her capacity as the new Lieutenant in homicide, holds her first press conference which she concludes did not go well. She is certainly very blunt. Meanwhile, Geller is unhappy with Travis' decision to go on a date with a pretty waitress. There's a price to pay for that. Dexter has a family crisis when Harrison has a burst appendix. Back in the lab, Masuka finally learns what Ryan has been up to. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[first lines]
Brother Sam: [baptizing] Do you undertake to keep God's commandments, and faith of His son, our Lord.
Nick: I do.
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] Some people think that religion began as a way for primitive cultures to explain natural phenomena. the fire, the wind, the rain. They created a god for each one.
Brother Sam: I baptize you, my brother, in Christ. You are baptized with Christ in death.
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] You'd think science would have made religion obsolete. But it hasn't. Go for a swim, come out a new man. If only I believed it ...

The Fist Press Conference
19 July 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter is at the beach with Harrison watching Brother Sam baptizing Nick. He receives a call from Debra to go to a crime scene and when he arrives, he sees mannequins and body parts on the top of horses. Soon Mike Anderson notes that they are representing the "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse". Dexter finds a piece of paper with a number in the eye of the victim and he and Debra investigate the body of the seven snakes victim and find another piece of paper in the intestines. The killer receives the nickname "Doomsday Killer". Debra has her first press conference and she believes that she did not go well. Harrison goes on emergency surgery of appendix. Masuka discovers that Ryan has stolen the hand of the Ice Truck Killer to sell it in Internet. Gellar finds Travis with a waitress in bed and When Travis awakes, he has a surprise.

"A Horse of a Different Color" shows situations that are different from what were first thought. Dexter believes in science but when Harrison is in danger, he shows a different attitude regarding faith. Debra believes that she did not go well in her first press conference, but she realizes that the audience and Marshall enjoyed. Masuka believed that Ryan was interested on him but he finds that he was lured by her. The charismatic Brother Sam is one of the best characters of this season. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Um Crime Diferente" ("A Different Crime")
