Dexter returns to Miami after his road trip to Nebraska and get a frosty reception from Debra who has been under pressure to get results in the doomsday killer case. He does his best to make amends, but doesn't share what he knows about Travis and Professor Gellar. Thanks to Masuka's intern Louis, the police now have a list of 200 of Gellar's former students living in the Miami area and the team fans out to interview them all. It doesn't stop the Doomsday Killer from striking again with a new tableau: the Whore of Babylon. Meanwhile Capt. Laguerta takes a particular interest in the death of a high class prostitute and seems desperate to have the case ruled an accidental death. Written by garykmcd

The Whore of Babylon
21 July 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter returns to Miami and finds Debra upset with him because of his absence and she tells that the Doomsday Killer is actually Gellar and another man, probably a former student. Louis uses his computer skills to reduce the number of Gellar's former students in Miami to 200 and the list is shared among the detectives that are assigned to investigate each one of them. LaGuerta gives a direct order to Debra to close her investigation of the death by OD of an escort girl. Debra decides to visit names of the list and she meets Travis' sister Lisa. Dexter continues to hunt down Gellar but Travis does not collaborate with him. Meanwhile Gellar abducts Travis and releases his Whore of Babylon in a school.

"Sin of Omission" is a dark episode of this season. Who might be involved in the death of the prostitute? My prime suspect is Deputy Chief Tom Matthews. Travis will certainly become an enemy of Gellar unless he dies. My vote is eight.
