Dexter decides he's going to eliminate Hanna McKay and gathers evidence that she has eliminated a number of people in her life. Something unexpected occurs however. LaGuerta begins to think that the Bay Harbor Butcher may have been responsible for the deaths of several criminals who vanished before they could be arrested. After discussing the situation with Nadia, Quinn decides to return the money left in his car. He's given little choice but to help the mobsters: either he eliminates the blood evidence they have linking Isaak Sirko to the Colombian shooting or Nadia will pay the price. A burned out Batista is seriously thinking of retiring and buying a restaurant. Written by garykmcd

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] Hannah McKay. She stabbed a woman 5 times, and since I found out, all I can think about is giving her what she deserves.
Harry Morgan: [appearing] Maybe she deserves a little slack. When she killed that woman, she was only 15. Scared of Wayne. On the run. It could have been a one-time thing.
Dexter Morgan: I saw the way she touched her trophies. Nostalgic. And when you like to kill, you don't just stop. She must have killed again since Wayne.
Harry Morgan: You have no evidence to support that.

What Is Happening to Dexter?
27 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Dexter searches evidences that might connect Hannah McKay to several crimes, including the death of her husband and her boss, and he changes his report to protect her. When he meets the writer Sal Price, he gets what he is looking for. LaGuerta discusses with Debra about the Bay harbor Butcher and she is convinced that the serial-killer is not dead. Angel is thinking of retiring from the police and buying a restaurant to live happily his life. Quinn is between a rock and a hard place since he was a dirt cop when he worked in the Narcotics Department and George Novikov uses his past and tells that he will send Nadia to a brothel in Dubai. He needs to get rid of the blood evidence to release Issak and save Nadia. Dexter discusses with Debra because of LaGuerta and she dates Sal Price and finds the truth about Hannah. Meanwhile Dexter invites Hannah for a date, to eliminate her. But something happens to him in the end.

In "Do the Wrong Thing", Dexter violates Harry's Code again and has a reckless attitude. Since when Dexter met Trinity's son, Jonah Mitchell, Dexter has reckless attitudes. He disclosed his secret to Mitchell; he told that his motor boat had sank to Jamie but the boat is floating and nobody questioned that; he spared the Doomsday Killer Travis; he killed Viktor in the airport and bought a ticket, but neither his name in the flight nor the cameras in the airport have been used by the mobster. Now he has just spared Hannah and the question is what is happening to Dexter. Quinn is involved to the soul and now he steals the blood evidence and again, why the police department does not have surveillance camera in the evidence room? My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Faça a Coisa Errada" ("Do the Wrong Thing")
