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

17 November 2015 | by (Kuopio, Finland) – See all my reviews

This is by far the best episode in all 7 seasons of Dexter I have so far watched. At some parts the show started to get sidetracked and repeat the same patterns over and over again. It started to be so bad I almost gave up watching. But this episode alone made it all worth it.

Ever since the beginning of the show I have thought that Jennifer Carpenter has been giving the most stellar performance of the cast. And oh my god, did she shine on "Argentina"! That single scene between Debra and Dexter has to be one of the most intense and emotional television experiences I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. I completely forgot I was watching a TV series and felt all the emotions and scars these people have gone through.

The episode ended with another spectacular scene between Michael C Hall and Ray Stevenson. Season 7 has so far been such an emotional roller-coaster it has to be one of the best seasons of the whole series.

I truly don't have enough words to describe what a masterpiece of TV entertainment this episode was. It goes right in my alltime top 5 TV episodes along with spectacular Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and The Wire episodes.
