Storyline

Debra and Angel identify the Ice Truck Killer as Neil Perry, a taxidermist with a history of mental illness and violence. After tracking down Perry to a sleazy motel, Debra and Angel arrest him where he gleefully confesses to the crimes. But when Dexter later meets Perry, something about his confession does not sit right with him. Lt. Laguerta sees the arrest of Perry as a way to further advance her political career, but feels betrayed when her superior, Captain Matthews takes the credit. Debra begins to have a meeting of minds with Rudy, the prosthetic manufacturer who works at the hospital, and asks him on a date. Meanwhile, Rita must try to adjust herself when Paul, her violent-tempered and recently paroled husband, shows up and throws his weight around by attempting to be compassionate to their children, Astor and Cody. Also, Dexter tries to cover up his past mistake when Jeremy Downs, one victim who Dexter allowed to escape, is arrested again for a murder charge. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When Dexter is talking about how embarrassed he is about thinking he was dealing with the master and "he lived in a double wide". The trailer shown in the exterior shots is a single wide trailer that looks old enough to have been built before double wides existed; which was sometime in the late 1960s or early 1970s. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: The F.B.I. estimates that there are less than fifty serial killers active in the United States today. We don't get together at conventions, share trade secrets, or exchange Christmas cards. But sometimes I wonder what it's like for the others. The only sound I hear, the only sound in the entire world, is my heart beating.

Disney Dad and Other Friends
23 June 2009 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Paul approaches to Astor and Cody posing of good father while Rita requests the divorce. Meanwhile Debra and Angel follow a lead and arrest a taxidermist that may be the Ice Truck Killer; the deranged guy confesses the crimes and the police department celebrates, while Dexter is disappointed with his former "friend". Meanwhile Dexter regrets to let Jeremy Downs escape; when he is ready to fix his error, the teenager is arrested by the police accused of murder. Dexter sees his circle of friends in jail.

"Circle of Friends" is an average episode of this series. The relationship of Paul, Rita and the children looks like a soap-opera; the exposition of Dexter to Jeremy Downs in the precinct is unreasonable and incoherent for a cold blood killer like Dexter. The chase of the Ice Truck Killer is the best part of this show. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Círculo de Amigos" ("Circle of Friends")
