Goofs

(at around 53 mins) Dexter injects sodium pentothal (sodium thiopentone) into Camilla's key lime pie in order to induce "coma in half a minute" and pancuronium to "stop her breathing". Both these drugs only work that way when given intravenously, and are given only i/v even in general anaesthetic practice. They would not have worked as intended after she takes them orally in the form of pie. See more »

A Friend does the Right Thing – The Most Touching and Dramatic Episode of Dexter
26 January 2011 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Dexter helps Camilla, who is slowly dying of terminal lung cancer, to move to a hospice to spend her last days, and she asks Dexter to bring a good piece of key lime pie first and then she asks Dexter to perform euthanasia later. Rita asks Dexter to prepare a list of guests for their wedding. Miguel asks Dexter to select the defense lawyer Ellen Wolf as a future victim. Meanwhile a former valedictorian woman is murdered and Dexter notes that the burglar had taken off his shoes and walked wearing socks, and cut one of his foot. Masuka immediately recalls that the MO is the same of the Asian criminal Albert Chung. Skinner is the top priority of the Miami Metro Police Department and Angel decides to use Anton as bait. However Debra compromises the investigation and asks Anton to move to Chicago. Dexter concludes that a friend does the right thing and injects sodium pentathol in a piece of key lime pie that he gives to Camilla; he deliver a list of names he had enrolled to Rita; and he tells Miguel that Ellen Wolf is doing her job and can not be murdered for that. Further, he invites Miguel Prado to be his best man.

"Easy as Pie" is so far the most touching and dramatic episode of Dexter. Ms. Margo Martindale shines in this show and her performance certainly moved any sensitive person to tears. The euthanasia was a magnificent decision of Dexter. The character Vince Masuka has improved a lot with his ironical and witty comments. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Fácil Demais" ("Too Easy")
