Dexter finally believes he understands the beast Arthur Mitchell, known as the Trinity Killer. But when a ten-year-old boy goes missing, Dexter is forced to question everything he's learned up to this point. It's a race against the clock to find the boy before Trinity kills him, and with each step forward, Dexter has to confront the real possibility that he may have more in common with Trinity than he'd like to admit. Secrets abound - from Cody, who is forced to defend one of Dexter's lies, Masuka, who can't bring himself to confess what he witnessed at Thanksgiving, and Debra, whose recent discoveries force one of Miami's finest into making an impossible decision.

The Boys Begin the Cycle
5 October 2011 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Dexter is chasing Arthur and sees that he is stalking three siblings and kidnaps the boy Scott Smith in an arcade. Sooner Dexter learns that there are several ten year old boys missing and they begin Trinity's cycle of four victims, and not three as Lundy believed. Dexter meets Jonah expecting to discover where his father might have gone and hold the boy captive. Meanwhile Debra gives and interview to Christine and asks Angel to check the journalist's reaction when she asks how she could have been so fast to arrive in the crime scene. Angel sends samples of Christine and after the DNA analysis, they find that Christine and Trinity are relatives and Christine is arrested.

"Lost Boys" is another engaging episode of this Fourth Season. Dexter finds that Arthur Mitchell uses his family as a shield and his cycle of killing begins with the disappearance of ten year-old boy. Once again Debra proves that she is a great detective and discovers that Christine is hiding something. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Garotos Perdidos" ("Lost Boys")
