Quotes

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: I've never had much use for the concept of Hell, but if Hell exists, I'm in it. The same images running through my head, over and over.
[He remembers horrific images]
Dexter Morgan: I was there. I saw my mother's death. A buried memory, forgotten all these years. They climbed inside me that day. And it's been with me ever since. My dark passenger.

Awesome Episode
4 July 2009 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The Ice Truck Killer kills the prostitute with a prosthetic hand that was interviewed by Angel and leaves her body parts in a Christmas tree in a mall. Angel is successfully operated and his ex-wife attends him in his recovery, but she explains that their marriage is history. Rudy has a wounded lip and tells Dexter that it was an accident with a piece of equipment. Dexter investigates the connection of the number 103 with him and discovers a bloodshed case in October, 3rd 1973, when his mother was slaughtered. Lt. Laguerta confronts Captain Matthews expecting his fall, but the political connections of his superior reverts the situation and she is dismissed. When Dexter visits Angel and discovers mark of teeth on his head, he asks a comparison of the DNAs of the Ice Truck Killer and Rudy. Meanwhile Rita decides to bring Astor and Cody to visit Paul in prison. Debra meets Rudy in a yacht and he proposes her while the desperate Dexter tries to contact his sister.

"Truth Be Told" is an awesome episode of this excellent series. In this show, Dexter and Debra finally discover the identity of the Ice Truck Killer, and Debra in a painful way. Angel realizes that his ex-wife will not come back for him. Lt. Laguerta finds how serious her situation in the Miami Police Department is. Rita finally realizes that she was protecting Paul and not her children omitting that their father is in prison. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Verdade Revelada" ("Revealed Truth")
