Storyline

Having lied to Rita to cover up what he really did to her late husband, Dexter now finds himself attending Narcotics Anonymous classes. He finds the exercise quite difficult and is afraid everyone will see through him. Rita however makes it quite clear that their relationship is entirely dependent on his continued participation in NA. She doesn't react too well though when she sees Dexter's sponsor, the very attractive Lila. Sgt. Doakes follows Dexter to an NA meeting, but surprises him with his reaction. Meanwhile, Debra is assigned to the joint task force with the FBI but is having difficulty dealing with the people and the desperation to find their loved ones. She does however uncover a pattern to the murders. Dexter identifies a serial killer and decides he has to take action, despite the scrutiny of the police and the FBI. Written by garykmcd

The Dark Passenger
4 August 2010 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Dexter is pressed by Rita to join a Twelve-Step Program in the AA otherwise she will end their relationship and Dexter finds that he is unable to lie with conviction. Meanwhile he investigates the efficient car dealer Roger Hicks that Dexter suspects that has raped and killed two single women and he is impressed with the skill to lie of the salesman. Agent Lundy assigns Debra to join his task force and after an initial rejection by her, Debra gives a good lead to him about the victims. Dexter meets the mysterious Lila in the program that helps him to understand the "dark passenger" he carries inside and become his sponsor. Sergeant Doakes follows Dexter and surprisingly supports and understands his suspicious attitude.

"An Inconvenient Lie" is a great show of Dexter where lie is the central theme. The witty black humor rules this episode and a new character is introduced, the gorgeous and sexy Lila. I have never seen the actress Jaime Murray before, but I am impressed how beautiful and sexy she is. Better off Rita changing her attitude with Dexter, since the newcomer in the show is also a troubled woman; therefore she has the profile Dexter found in Rita. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Uma Mentira Inconveniente" ("An Inconvenient Lie")
