Storyline

Still coming to terms with Dr. Vogel's death, Dexter wants to eliminate Oliver Saxon before he, Harrison and Hannah head off to South America. He also has a lot of personal items to tie up including selling his condo. Saxon shows up as a prospective buyer and offers Dexter a deal: they stop going after each other and go their own way. Dexter is non-committal and, having located his kill room, sets a trap for him. Meanwhile, U.S. Deputy Marshall Clayton is following Deb, certain that she will lead him to Hannah. Dexter is continuing to reevaluate his priorities and his final choices have an impact on several key players. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Daniel Vogel tells Dexter "Miami is a great city" and that he "loves the cuban food". This almost identical to part of Dexter's first lines on the show. He also comments on the low murder solve rate, something Dexter commented on in the first episode. See more »

Goofs

In former episode, Dexter hugs dying Evelyn, who's heavily bleeding from her throat. He's wearing gloves. At the beginning of this episode, Dexter is washing his hands, literally soaked with blood, like if he was bare handed. Instead, his shirt has just some small spots of blood... See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] Vogel warned me I've been straddling two worlds, and I ignored her. For that, she paid the price with her life. Now, I have to remove myself from her life.
[removing evidence from Vogel's house]
Dexter Morgan: I never imagined the last homicide I'd work would be one I'm now a part of. I have to call this in. I can't be seen leaving the scene of the crime. The last time I was in a pool of my mother's blood, I was too young to do anything about it, but I'm no longer a child.

Good Episode
9 August 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter cleans the evidences from Dr. Vogel's house and decides to kill Saxon before traveling to Argentina. He also tells Angel that he wants to quit the Miami Metro. Saxon challenges Dexter posing of a buyer of his apartment and proposes a truce to Dexter with each one letting the other go. Dexter finds Saxon's hideout and plots a scheme to catch the serial- killer. When he decides to deliver Saxon to the Miami Metro, his decision will end with tragic consequences.

"Monkey in a Box" is a good episode of this weak season. Dexter seems to get rid of his dark passenger and it seems that Hannah will change his urge for death, in a preparation for a happy ending. Or not? My vote is eight.
