When Dexter is driving in his car at around the 29 minute mark, he says that he 'has miles to go before he sleeps' in his head, which is a direct line from Robert Frost's 'Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening' See more »

[Dexter answers his cell phone]
Dexter Morgan: Yeah?
Frank Lundy: Dexter. Frank Lundy here.
Dexter Morgan: [thinking] The last person in the world I want to hear from.
Dexter Morgan: Glad to hear from ya.
Frank Lundy: I need to talk to you. About Trinity. I'm tired of swimming against the bureaucratic tide by myself. Can we maybe toss a few ideas around? You seem to have the dot-connecting gift.

Where Are the Remains of Benny Gomes?
24 July 2011 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Dexter is rescued with a concussion, but worried with the remains of Benny Gomes in his car. The doctor wants to keep him in observation but he sneaks out of the hospital with Rita, and lies to her telling that it was a fender bender. He is worried since if the police find Benny's remains in his car he will be in serious trouble. Meanwhile Angel and Lt. Maria LaGuerta are having a love affair. Agent Frank Lundy seeks information about the crime scene of Lisa Bell with Dexter. Dexter finds his kill tools in the wrecked car but no remains in the trunk. Meanwhile another tourist is murdered by the so-called "vacation murder" case and Lt. LaGuerta assumes the case. Dexter unsuccessfully seeks whether the remains had been thrown out of the car but he can not recall what he did with Benny. Meanwhile, Lundy invites Debra to have dinner with him to discuss Lisa Bell case and she misunderstands the reason of the encounter. Dexter finds a lead of the possible killer of tourists tries to find where he had hidden Benny.

In this episode Dexter is desperate with his fragmented recollections due to the trauma of his car accident. Debra is visibly disturbed with the arrival of Lundy. The romance of Angel and LaGuerta is conflictive with their hierarchy in the police department. The Trinity Killer has found his next victim after a careful observation of her habits. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Que Será dos Restos?" ("What Will the Remains Be?")
