Storyline

Dexter's failure to dispose of Little Chino results in the tragic death of a witness against him. He's determined to get it right the next time, but Sgt. Doakes is still following him in his off hours. With the discovery of Dexter's burial ground, a special joint task force with the FBI is established. Doakes hopes to join but is rebuffed. Debra Morgan clearly has not recovered fully from her ordeal with the Ice Truck Killer but her use of excessive force results in a major drug bust. Rita is having trouble coming to grips with the death of her husband and she now realizes that Dexter set him up. In order to explain however, Dexter embellishes his story somewhat.

Suspenseful Episode!
13 June 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the second episode of the second season of Dexter and it successfully expands on the first episode, and more so the first season. This episode is all about the feelings of our characters. For example, Dexter is insecure especially after the discoveries of his bodies, Rita is more aggressive, and Debra shows she's still being affected by her past.

In this episode, "Waiting to Exhale," Dexter goes after Chino to find out he is waiting for him. Rita is struggling with the death of her husband and she confronts Dexter on whether he is to blame. Meanwhile with the discovery of the bodies, a special task force has been created. Debra has an encounter with a child, which ultimately leads to a drug bust.

Overall, this is a fantastic episode. While not as good as the opener, it still manages to hold it's own. There's no shock or surprises here, but this episode is all about the feelings and more so, that Dexter may be a caring person after all. I rate this episode 9/10.
