Trivia

When LaGuerta talks to Perry, she suggests that he might have "immortality" if he becomes "the most heinous killer in Florida's history." Perry replies that if he's to be immortalized, he'd like to have a reporter to interview him for the front page. LaGuerta sternly says, "You're not allowed to talk to the press before the trial." She is referring to the legal rule of "sub judice," which means that a case which has been called to trial may not be discussed with the press. In the state of Florida, under the U.S. Constitution, that rule has been withheld sometimes; but, at any rate, Perry has only been arrested, not arraigned. It is possible that LaGuerta is holding a threat over him. See more »

Goofs

Dr. Meridian is described as a psychiatrist, and his clients ask him for prescriptions. When Dexter finds his name in the victim's files, he's listed as "Emmett Meridian, PhD." Psychiatrists are MD's; a PhD would make Meridian a psychologist, and unable to prescribe medication. See more »

The True Identity of the Ice Truck Killer
2 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

After the third suicide of powerful businesswomen using the same "modus operandi", Dexter searches some evidence in common in the report of the cases. He finds that the three victims were clients of Dr. Emmett Meridian and he schedules a session with the suspicious psychologist. Meanwhile Debra falls in love for the prosthetic Rudy Cooper. Lt. Maria Laguerta investigates the profile of Neil Perry further and concludes that he can not be the Ice Truck Killer. Rita improves her relationship with Paul Bennett and she notes that Dexter made her a more secure woman. She calls Dexter and she intends to have the next step in their relationship, but he feels insecure; however, the sessions with Dr. Emmett improves Dexter and he moves on in the relationship with Rita.

"Shrink Wrap" is one of the best episodes of "Dexter" so far. The surprising true identity of the Ice Truck Killer is finally disclosed; the relationship among Dexter, Rita and Paul improves, and Dexter seems to accept Rita "less damaged" by Paul; for the first time I ma cheering for Lt. Laguerta against her despicable boss. Last but not the least, the romance between Debra and Rudy is promising and one of the best moments of this great show. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Terapia" ("Therapy")
