Excellent Episode!
21 June 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the eighth episode on the second season of Dexter and it's a very good, tense episode. This episode has many surprising elements and sometimes I was taken off guard on what happened. They still know how to roll out the surprises and this is a good set-up episode for what will happen as we are nearing the finale.

In this episode, "Morning Comes," Dexter is told that he is not allowed to see Rita and the kids again. Dexter finds out that Lila deliberately lied to him about her house being on fire and Lila and Debra are at odds with one another. Dexter has another encounter with one of his mother's killers. Finally, Doakes breaks into Dexter's house as he is searching for evidence.

Overall, this is an incredible episode that promises even better things ahead. This has the element of surprise and they are used effectively. The acting is still fantastic and I'm excited to see what happens next. I rate this episode 9/10.
