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 ...

One Problem Goes, Another Comes
28 July 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter takes Hannah in a boat ride, but she receives a message and has to return to work. Meanwhile, Isaak and Yurg discover that the Koshka Brotherhood has hired two professional hit-men to kill him. Issak breaks into Dexter's apartment and proposes him to be the surprise element to kill the killers. Dexter turns his proposal down and Jurg kidnaps Hannah to force Dexter to help Isaak. Dexter discloses the situation to Debra and tells that he will help Isaak to save Hannah. LaGuerta visits Matthews on his boat to tell her theory about the Bay Harbor Butcher and after an initial rough dialog, Matthews proposes an arrangement to help her. George forces Nadia to have sex with him; when Quinn learns what happened with his girlfriend, he punches George on the face several times and takes Nadia out of the club. Dexter helps Isaak to kill the killers, but Isaak is mortally wounded by George. Meanwhile Hannah tries to escape from Jurg and is wounded by him.

"Helter Skelter" is a great episode where Dexter gets rid of a great problem, Issak Sirko. However a greater problem is coming, with the investigation of LaGuerta. Quinn is drowning in the mud that he got into. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Apressado" ("In a Hurry")
