Dexter is convinced that Zack Hamilton killed Norma Rivera but has no proof and takes to following him whenever he can. He's more than a bit surprised to follow him to Dr. Vogel's office. She admits that Zach is a new patient but refuses to talk about his case. Batista is under pressure from Deputy Chief Tom Matthews to make a decision on who to promote to sergeant. When Quinn learns he didn't get the job, he redoubles his effort to solve the Rivera murder. With Dexter tagging along, it becomes obvious - to Dexter at least - that Zack is stalking his next victim, Sofia Fuentes a waitress at a yacht club owned by the Hamilton family. Deb's boss wants to get evidence that his sister's boyfriend is a skirt-chaser who sees other women. Deb agrees to try and lure him into a compromising situation. Dexter goes out on a date with his new neighbor Cassie. Masuka learns that his newfound daughter may have serious financial problems. Dexter gets a surprise visitor. Written by garykmcd

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] Accidents happen, shattering our sense of control, if not our lives. It's no accident that Zach Hamilton is here. He's drawn to blood, like me.
[watching Zach photograph accident scene]
Dexter Morgan: Did he kill Norma Rivera? After a week of vetting him, I haven't been able to find definitive proof. But I'm sure, if I keep following him, the truth will become clear. Or it could get murkier.

Holy God this was nuts.
5 August 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A little reflection, well dig into the episode and you will find the relevance of the title. Well the last episode for me was very slow, seemed like nothing is happening and for much of the episode they created a string and boom a firecracker burst. Yeah wait for the last scene and you going to jump. Not giving any spoilers here, the episode opens a little more trouble for Dexter and Deb. Dexter chases Hamilton, does he succeed i am not sure u got to watch for yourself. Have to say Vogel took a leaf out of Inception and planted an idea in Dexter mind. Deb troubles continues, less scary ones. Sergeant race is almost over as you may have seen in the episode preview but is it really over. And we have a daddy son moment too, a reflection.
