Storyline

Isaak Sirko learns that the Koshka Brotherhood has sent two assassins to Miami to eliminate him. Surprisingly he turns to Dexter with a proposition: help him eliminate the assassins in return for his life. Dexter's not too keen on the proposal and turns him down. Isaak acquires a trump card however: he's taken Hannah hostage and now offers him her life as well. Dexter also has to deal with Deb who is embarrassed by her earlier admission to Dexter that she's in love with him. Hannah meanwhile keeps trying to get Dexter to open up to her. Captain LaGuerta approaches her former boss with her theory about the Bay Harbor Butcher but he blows her off...at first. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] There are no two stronger human emotions than fear and love. In many ways, they're not so different. Both can make you do crazy things - tell your own brother you're in love with him, put your own life at risk to hunt down the man who took away your beloved.
Hannah McKay: [white knuckled at back of boat] Could you maybe not do that turny thing?
Dexter Morgan: How you doing back there?
Hannah McKay: Oh, you know, I'm fine.
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] Or do something that scares you to death because you may be in love.
Hannah McKay: Oooh! I ...

I don't like when the protagonist does impossible things, especially dangerous and against the law things, and gets away with it unscathed. This is precisely what happens with Dexter killing one of the hit-man out in the open and raising no suspicion at all. It leaves things much more interesting when the consequences catch up to the one who brought them to himself. Of course, that seems to be happening with LaGuerta investigating Dexter, and it did happen when Rita died in season 4, but Dexter has gotten away with many improbable (one could even say sloppy) killings and situations, and that is not good of the show.

However, all in all, I gave this episode 9 rating, because of how it made me feel. That is what, in fact, all show should be about - of course an intelligent and well written plot only adds to those emotions, but when there are minor flaws (not major ones like in season 6) and the things the show makes me feel and think are good or impacting in some way, as it was with these episode, I cannot hope to deny that this is nice television. And that is what Dexter is, one of the best shows ever to air.
