Storyline

Having decided to be involved in the baby's life, Dexter and Rita decide to tell the kids, but Astor isn't too keen and asks why they're not married. Dexter proposes but Rita declines. He comes up with a way to get her to say yes. Rita's hormones are up to full speed and her short-tempered treatment of a hotel guest gets her fired. Meanwhile, Ramon Prado is upset that the police have not yet found his brother's killer. Miguel Prado suggests to Dexter that they tell him the truth about killing Freebo, but Dexter sets out to show him that the ill-tempered Ramon can't be trusted. Elsewhere, Angel and the squad investigates the murder of man who is discovered by his fiancée. Also, Debra Morgan doesn't appreciate her partner, Quinn's approach to the case. All the while, she continues to receive text messages from Yuki from Internal Affairs asking for her help in their investigation. Angel Batista is almost caught in a police sting operation when he picks up what he thinks is a prostitute. ... Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: [thinking while watching kids play] Role playing. Such an important part of growing up. When we were kids, whatever role Deb assigned me - evil monster, treacherous Nazi, horrible alien - I played them to perfection.

Keeps getting better
21 September 2017 | by jetkotSee all my reviews

I have become addicted to Dexter. The show keeps getting better with every episode. Very well written actors and brilliant lead actors. The show entertains you thoroughly. This episode makes us see many layers of Dexter. He makes you feel for him. You are unsure whether he likes being a normal human being or is he better equipped in acting normal.
