Storyline

Dexter apologizes to Rita and admits to her that Lila was one of the biggest mistakes of his life. Lila on the other hand isn't quite as ready to give him up and shows up at the station hinting that she may have a few things to share with Dexter's colleagues. Under constant FBI surveillance, Dexter can't get rid of his last victim's remains. With the evidence he's acquired at Dexter's apartment, Sgt. Doakes seeks the help of an old friend in confirming its value. When Dexter realizes his slides are missing, he thinks the jig is up but Lundy and his FBI colleagues don't quite have it right. Special Agent Lundy and Debra spend the night together. Written by garykmcd

A Golden Episode!
23 June 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the ninth episode of the second season of Dexter and oh boy what an episode this is! It's action-packed and full of surprises, and there is actually a huge surprise at the end that is making me eagerly anticipating on what will happen next. I like how this show doesn't rely on clichés like other crime shows to tell the story. This is surely one of a kind.

In this episode, "Resistance Is Futile," Dexter apologizes to Rita and admits that Lila is the worst mistake of his life. But Lila is not going to let Dexter get away that easily. Meanwhile, Dexter is in shock when he realizes his blood samples are missing and believe his time is up when Lundy calls him in. But Lundy tells Dexter that Doakes is the prime suspect. They dispatch a security detail on Dexter, but one night Dexter escapes to do some work and there he gets a very big surprise.

Overall, this is an incredible episode and the best one yet this season. I was able to remain glued to by seat to see what happens and I urge other viewers to do the same. The tension between Dexter and Doakes is even higher now and that may lead somewhere one day. I can't wait to see what happens next. I rate this episode 10/10.
