Meanwhile, the police are still raiding the strip club and owner Isaak Sirko decides it's time to give the police what they want and frames someone for the hit.

Dexter Morgan: [narrating] Just when it seems like Deb and I are making progress, we take a left-turn. I showed her a monster, Ray Speltzer, the killer who chased his victim through a maze. I could have prevented that murder, and Deb accepts that. But she hasn't accepted me for what I am. And I'm not sure she ever will.

We're all Glad I guess
22 October 2012 | by botrytisSee all my reviews

For me this episode was the perfect cameo for Dexter for a long time ( well, maybe next to the first one).

With this serious situation between Deb and Dex makes the whole Series different, set it to a new direction to go through, a way which non of us can predict where it ends, and how. This episode set many of the past elements into the fire, to sacrifice for something new (" To move on") and it's just has started the fire inside me.

It's a solid episode, with different psychopaths, and the story just gets complicated, how we always wanted to. It gets more suspenseful, reminds me of the old first two seasons tone, and maybe this season becomes another great one besides them.

"Are you...?" = "Run"
