Storyline

Having avenged Brother Sam's death, Dexter gets some bad news from Deb - it appears the Trinity Killer has returned to kill his wife and daughter, leaving his son Jonah as the only survivor. Dexter knows that Trinity is lying in pieces at the bottom of the ocean and immediately suspects that Jonah may have taken over where his father left off. He sets off for Nebraska to confront Jonah accompanied by someone from his past. When he confirms Jonah's role in the deaths, Dexter clearly has a choice to make. Back in Miami, the team gets a significant lead when they locate the girl Travis released. But with Dexter unavailable, the squad are missing a key expert to analyze what they've found. Travis stays with his sister and seemingly ends his relationship with Gellar. Captain Laguerta embarrasses Debra at a meeting. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[last lines]
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] Brother Sam believed light can keep darkness at bay. But I wonder if darkness is defined by light. If so, darkness can't exist on its own. There must, by definition, be light somewhere, waiting to be found.
Harry Morgan: [appearing on the side of the road hitchhiking] Welcome home, son.

The Weakest Episode of the Series
21 July 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Debra meets Dexter and tells that the Trinity Killer has just murdered his wife Sally and his daughter Rebecca, and Jonah is the only survivor. Further Jonah has told to the police that he has fought with his father. Dexter immediately knows that Jonah is lying and he decides to take five days off to travel to Nebraska. The situation brings his brother Brian Moses, The Ice Truck Killer, back and Dexter travels with him. He lodges in a motel and has an incident with the owner. Then he meets Jonah and despite Brian's advices, he makes a choice. Meanwhile Travis leaves Gellar and goes to the house of his sister to stay with her.

"Nebraska" is so far the weakest episode of this series. Brian Moses is wasted in this episode trying to shift his brother from Harry's code. Fortunately he does not succeed in his intent; otherwise Dexter would become a common serial-killer "without principles" and would certainly lose his audience. Debra is having difficulties in her new position, especially with LaGuerta undermining her. Will Gellar leave Travis to have a normal life? My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Nebraska"
