Hello Doomsday Killer
19 July 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While investigating the death of the waitress, Dexter stumbles with Travis and he searches his background believing that he is the Doomsday Killer. He also learns that Travis was Gellar's student at the university. He kidnaps Travis to kill him, but he realizes that Travis is not the Doomsday Killer. Batista and Quinn travel to Tallahassee to investigate Gellar and they meet his former affair, Professor Carissa Porter. Quinn has one night stand with her and Angel accidentally finds some notes from Gellar in her house. Debra goes on therapy and she moves to a house nearby the beach where a couple was murdered. Gellar and Travis see a couple walking alone in the night and they abduct the woman. Brother Sam visits Dexter and when he returns to his repair shop, he is shot by someone.

"The Angel of Death", Dexter releases Travis sure that he is not the Doomsday Killer. Quinn has an affair with Carissa en his attitude will certainly bring consequences to him. The negotiation of Debra and Mike Anderson to get discount on the renting of the house at the beach is funny. I hope Brother Sam survives; otherwise darkness will prevail over light. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Anjo da Morte" ("The Angel of Death")
