Storyline

Having spent the night together, Hannah and Dexter decide to see each other again. He's not so sure what he's going to do about Deb however. She is adamant that Dexter get rid of Hannah but he refuses, saying he's sure she doesn't want to be responsible for a murder. With everything he has to deal with, Cody and Astor come to stay with him after their grandfather is hospitalized. Deb finally breaks down and tells him her true feelings. Isaak Sirko decides to take a more direct approach and tries to shoot Dexter in broad daylight. Strip club manager George Novikov thinks Isaak has stepped over the line and put their entire operation at risk. He also has the goods on Quinn and starts turning the screws. Captain LaGuerta continues her investigation into Dexter and learns that he moved his boat just as the Bay Harbor butcher investigation was getting under way. Written by garykmcd

Everyone Wants An Argentina...
19 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

It is truly wonderful how a TV series that revolves around a vigilante serial killer can penetrate deep into the heart. I personally don't just watch Dexter, I also feel for him, and this episode brought about an emotional outpour that I have rarely experienced.

On a technical stand-point, the acting was absolutely marvelous. I'm sure all fans of the series will appreciate the one-on-one conversations between Dexter and Isaac or Deborah. The way this episode deals with the personal life of almost all the main characters is also remarkable.Quinn, Isaac, and even George, the club owner, are among those whose lives and point of view become more clear to us; this episode touches upon as many things as possible with such subtlety that is undoubtedly unprecedented.

The closing monologue is extremely introspective and simultaneously all-inclusive; even I could relate to it, and I think many will as well. It is among the best scenes of Dexter, if not the best. I won't reveal more about it since I don't intend to spoil the fun.

All together, I highly recommend watching this episode.
