Storyline

Dexter is obsessed with getting the Trinity Killer himself, especially after Arthur has tracked him to Metro Homicide and learns his real identity. Dexter realizes the threat to his family and with the older stepchildren off with their grandparents, he convinces Rita to take Harrison to the Keys where he will join them later for a weekend honeymoon. His first attempt to take care of Arthur goes awry when as a result of a traffic accident, he finds himself in jail for leaving the scene. His second attempt is more successful, but his obsession to kill Arthur comes with a price. Meanwhile, no one can quite understand why Debra is still at work given what happened to Christine Hill, but when the FBI takes over the Trinity Killer case, she refocuses on learning more about her father and his relationship with his confidential informants. Debra finally learns about how her father came to adopt Dexter. Also, Laguerta and Batista now have to decide what to do next in their relationship. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

The bath water around Rita's throat is being disturbed by the pulse in her neck. She's clearly not dead. That would have been an easy problem to fix, by having the actress sit slightly higher in the water. See more »

Awesome Season
23 November 2017 | by jetkotSee all my reviews

This Season had a fantastic Villain in John Lithgow. He was fantastic as the deranged serial killer .Arthur Mitchell is really scary. This season leaves you feeling bad for Dexter Morgan. Julie Benz gives a layered performance and Jennifer Carpenter is flawless The Thriller keeps you at the edge of your seat and the conversations that the Character has with himself are fantastic ..Includes conversation with his deceased father Harry Morgan .
