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


Having rescued Travis at the church, Dexter now tries to figure out what the next tableau will be. With Travis having agreed to help him, Dexter gets him a room in a hotel to keep him safe. A clue from one of the paintings eventually leads Dexter to a Professor Casey, an avowed atheist. He tries to warn Casey about what may happen but the professor brushes him off, claiming to get threats all of the time. Unfortunately, the doomsday killer strikes again. When Travis disappears, Dexter traces him to the church. Dexter finds him alive but also makes a startling discovery. Meanwhile Batista takes Quinn to task when he fails to show up for work and apparently left his phone and gun behind in someone's car when he left the strip club. Debra decides to reopen the case of the dead call girl despite Capt. Laguerta's objections. Written by garykmcd

If it wasn't for the internet...
28 November 2011 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

... few would have seen this coming. YES, the scenes with Travis and Gellar kind of showed that Gellar wasn't interacting with anyone else, and that no one else ever saw him. But I personally abandoned the theory that he was already dead when (I thought) he tied up that girl Travis slept with in the kitchen. But it turns out Travis was THAT crazy. So Gellar has been dead for a while. It could've been hidden a bit better (but could it really? I found out while reading someone else's theory here). A good twist. The real twist that surprised me in this episode is the fact that Louis had the hand all along. This season has been good up until now, with the exception of Nebraska, which was highly anticipated, presented a good story and a solid twist (Jonah hadn't killed his sister) but badly made, in my opinion. He has sex with that girl in the shop? Shooting while driving on the highway? Unnecessary scenes which were just silly and stupid. However, this season still has a lot to look forward to. Who is Louis? Is he connected to Dex or Brian somehow? Will Debra's psychiatrist help her discover who Dexter really is? AND FINALLY, what is Mike Anderson's purpose? So far he's done NOTHING. At first I thought he might start suspecting Dex, but no sign of that so far. And will Travis try to kill Debra? The crime scene with his sister certainly pointed to that. All in all, since I've never reviewed a Dexter episode here on IMDb, this looks like a good season, refreshing, if it still has to give us more than just Travis for the last 3 episodes. Yes, there have been plot holes, lazy writing, but I still enjoy Dexter. 9/10 for this episode, the best one along with th first one, for me.
