Storyline

Dexter is sent to investigate a horrific blood-soaked crime scene, which he usually enjoys, but is taken aback by a long-suppressed memory of a childhood trauma instead. Rita is charged with assaulting Paul and could lose her children in a custody battle. However, when Dexter finds out, he decides to remove Paul from his and Rita's lives, but by framing him rather than killing him. Angel investigates a hunch regarding the Ice Truck Killer concerning amputee fetish; he turns to Rudy for help but ends up getting stabbed in the parking lot. Meanwhile, Rudy displays a growing interest in getting to know Dexter, particularly in the lately awoken trauma he had recently experienced.

Just Bloody Brilliant!
4 January 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

The tenth episode in the first season Dexter is by far the best one yet. The intensity level increases by a whole lot as we dig deeper into the case of the Ice Truck Killer and the past of Dexter. Regarding Dexter's past, we really begin to see some interesting developments here. This episode does not lack in anything and because of the fast-pacing, you just want to see what happens next.

This episode, "Seeing Red," has the killer striking again and leaves a room covered entirely in blood. As Dexter investigates, we learn more about his solemn past. Meanwhile, Debra and Rudy begins to fight with each other. Angel uncovers what could be possibly a big clue in the case. Rita may lose custody over her kids after she attacked Paul and Dexter cannot allow that to happen.

Overall, this is definitely the best episode of the series so far. It's beginning to tie things up and we can expect some big things to happen in the next two episodes. For one, I am extremely excited to see what they bring. If this is any indication, I daresay it's gonna be one tense time for Dexter and the Miami Police Department. I rate this episode 10/10.
