While the investigation into the Bay Harbor Butcher continues, Dexter hears that his forensic colleague Vince may have come up with a way to identify where the killer moored his boat. Dexter's attempt to destroy the evidence doesn't quite go as planned. Debra finally hooks up with the man she has been ogling at her gym. Dexter meets Rita's mom who is in town visiting.

Rita is in the kitchen tearing romaine lettuce but a few minutes later when they sit down for dinner, it is missing from everyones plates. See more »


When Dexter walks into the room and Lila is using the welding torch (and wearing the welder's mask), she looks over and "sees" that it is Dexter. You cannot see anything at all when the visor is down, so it would have been impossible for her to see who it was. See more »

Dexter Morgan: Just as the worst heat wave in years hits Miami, the heat is also on me. It's week 3 of the Bay Harbor Butch investigation, and super-duper Agent Lundy has yet to throw up his hands and say, wow this guy's good, I give up.

Another Engaging Episode!
14 June 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the fourth episode in the second season of Dexter and it's fantastic and about as engaging as ever. We really feel the tension mount and Dexter's insecurity rise as Agent Lundy and his team attempt to track down the Bay Harbor Butcher but of course whoever watches this show truly knows the identity of this Butcher. But that being said, this is a great episode with respectable story lines.

In this episode, "See-Through," Dexter begins to feel the pressure as Lundy is on his tail and Dexter desperately tries to destroy the evidence. He also believes Lila is not worth his time and Rita happens to agree. Her mother comes to town and believes Dexter is hiding something. Debra starts dating this guy who she met at the gym. LaGuerta is placed back in charge of Homicide after a meltdown by Pascal.

Overall, this is another great episode in one of the greatest crime shows of all time. Each episode keeps on getting more interesting and I'm rather curious to see if Dexter is going to change or still going to be this dark passenger. I rate this episode 9/10.
