Dark, Twisted, and Great!

The fourth episode in season one of Dexter comes one of the most chilling and twisted episodes yet. Things get deeper in regards to the Ice Truck Killer and more personal as well. I think that is what makes this episode more fascinating. I liked how we get more glimpses or flashbacks into the childhood of Dexter's and we can see what his life was like growing up. I liked how they incorporated all of that into this very interesting episode.

This episode, "Let's Give the Boy a Hand", has Dexter finding body parts of the Ice Truck Killer's next victim at personal places of Dexter's childhood.

Overall, this is one fascinating episode. I liked the plot and the subplots for this episode. This episode ended with a big bang since the final ten minutes were very good and it has a pretty neat, unexpected twist. I really enjoyed this episode on the whole. I rate this episode 9/10.
