Storyline

Dexter's worst fears have been realized. Because of Debra's unrelenting pursuit, Miami Metro is just one step away from discovering the identity of the Trinity Killer. And Dexter can't let that happen. Arthur's arrest would not only deprive Dexter of a satisfying kill, it would also expose the secret life Dexter's been leading (as Kyle Butler) in his pursuit of this monster. Dexter must take drastic action to buy himself time to deal with Trinity in his own fashion. Meanwhile, Rita decides to confide in Dexter, which doesn't go as well as she'd hoped. LaGuerta and Batista's breach of ethics paints them into a very tight corner. And Arthur, who still can't understand why Dexter didn't simply turn him in, begins his own bloody investigation into 'Kyle Butler'.

Great penultimate episode!
23 September 2018 | by jacobstevenmillenSee all my reviews

Things are definitely coming to a tense close for this season. I loved Lithgow's acting in this episode, it was top-notch, especially at the end. And I totally didn't expect that moment with Christine's character at the end!

The only thing I didn't like was the title of the episode. The title totally gave away the end, which would have been so much more surprising without the title.

Also this episode wasn't quite on the same level of intensity of the episode Hungry Man, which I thought to be one of the best episodes so far, but it was still great.
