Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Capt. Maria LaGuerta (as Lauren Velez)


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

Latest Episode was the worst one ever
18 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with the previous mailshadow review, or some user name like that. This episode made no sense in the flow of the show, and completely disregarded all of Dexter's rules that he has carefully followed every other episode. Since when does he drive and fire a gun at the same time while flying down the highway? It would be cool if he did these things to gain his brother's trust and then backstabbed him later in the episode, but his brother is dead and always has been. Totally stupid story line and they made it last the entire episode. I can only hope and pray that when his brother "vanished" at the end of the episode he will also vanish from the rest of this season and series. That character, actor and story line all do nothing for me. Does anyone else predict Professor Geller to kidnap Travis's sister? I smell that one coming. Also, does Geller kill Travis because he is so weak, or will Travis help turn in Geller? That's about it - I'm tired. This week's episode better redeem a somewhat promising season, otherwise I am going to start losing faith in these writers.
