Dexter's problems keep mounting. After the surprise outcome of his planned execution of Hannah McKay, they agree they are far too much alike and decide not to see each other again. It doesn't quite work out as planned. Dexter learns that true crime writer Sal Price is writing a book about Hannah as he is convinced she was an active participant in the murders believed to have been committed by her boyfriend. Dexter sets out to get Sal to go in another direction but Hannah takes charge of things. Deb wants Dexter to do what he does best. Meanwhile, Quinn comes under suspicion of having made the blood evidence against Isaak Sirko disappear. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Towards the end of the episode, when Hannah is telling Dexter that it was her husband that didn't want the baby, Dexter says "Did you kill him because he didn't want a family?" to which, Hannah says that it was "the opposite" and then goes on to say that "I wanted a family and he didn't" thus confirming what Dexter had said and therefore not "the opposite".

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: Chemistry. I've heard some people have it. An attraction that can't be quantified or explained. Is that the reason behind this... loss of control? Maybe the desire to get Hannah on my table was just a way to deny the effect she has on me. So now what?
Hannah McKay: [suddenly knife to his throat] How do you like it?
Dexter Morgan: Not much.
Hannah McKay: You do this to all the girls that you go out with? Wrap them up in plastic?
Dexter Morgan: I don't actually go out.
Hannah McKay: So then, what? This whole date thing was just a way to get me alone so ...

Dexter spends the night with Hannah and he brings her home in the morning, promising not to see each other again. However Sal Price is stalking Hannah and blackmails Dexter to give information to him about Wayne; otherwise he will destroy his career telling that he forged the blood report to protect his love. Price also forces Hannah to meet him to tell details about Wayne's crimes and she accepts too protect Dexter. Price also meets Debra and tells that his technician does not agree with Dexter's report and believes that Hannah killed her husband and her former boss with poison. Isaak is released from prison due to the lack of the blood evidence and the crime scene in the bar is totally destroyed with sewage by the Koshka Brotherhood. Angel finds that Quinn was the only one that had been in the evidence room in the last 72 hours, but Quinn tells that he has nothing to do with the disappearance of the evidence and Angel believes. Then Quinn lends ten thousand dollar to Angel for buying the restaurant. Dexter plots a scheme to incriminate Sal Price and stop his blackmail with Hannah and him. However, Sal Price has a heart attack and dies in Dexter's apartment. Dexter visits Hannah and they spend the night together again. In the middle of the night, Dexter receives a phone call from Debra with a strange request from her.

"Chemistry" is another episode where Dexter violates Harris's Code in the name of love (or chemistry). The dangerous Isaak Sirko is back to the streets and George still hold Nadia's passport and freedom. Quinn uses the bribery from the Koshka Brotherhood to help Angel but this attitude does not exempt him for what he did. Dexter is in checkmate now with Hannah. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Química" ("Chemistry")
