Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Sussman's Mother
Dave Chittick ...
Welks (as David Chittick)


Dr. Vogel shows Dexter some video she shot when his father Harry visited her for help in treating him. Dexter was only 10 years old when Harry first visited her and she takes more than just a little of the credit for what Dexter calls Harry's code: that he would only kill bad people. Vogel says she did it because she cared for him. Having saved his life, she now wants to call in a favor: she thinks the man who recently slide open someones brain and left the body on the beach is one of her former patients. She wants Dexter to do what she and Harry taught her to do. Deb's boss meanwhile isn't too keen that she put herself at risk in trying to recover the jewels from Briggs. She's not done yet, convinced that Briggs kept the jewels in a storage facility. She gets more than she bargained for. The police find another body with his skull and brain sliced open. Dexter finds a fingerprint leading him to a man named Sussman, who hasn't been seen for a few weeks. Written by garykmcd

Dexter watches videos of Harry consulting Dr. Vogel about him. The ten year-old Dexter had just visited a crime scene with Harry and his stepfather visited Dr. Vogel seeking help for his stepson. Dr. Vogel discloses to Dexter that she prepared Harry's Code with his stepfather to satisfy Dexter's urge for blood. Dr. Vogel has received the missing part of the brain of a man and she believes that the killer is one of her former patients. She asks Dexter to find and kill the serial-killer as a sort of favor for her. Deb goes to a store expecting to recover the jewels stolen by Briggs, but El Sapo unexpectedly arrives and beats up on Debra. The police find another victim with brain and skull sliced open and Dexter finds a clue. Then El Sapo is murdered and Dexter discovers who has killed the hit-man.

"Every Silver Lining..." is not among the best episodes of Dexter. There are good dialogs and great performances but the plot is weak. Dexter is not following Harris's Code any longer and Debra is completely lost and wasted. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Cada Fresta de Esperança..." ("Each Slender of Hope")
