Dexter Resistance Is Futile S02E09 (Showtime)

Dexter stars Michael C. Hall, most known for his role as David in the HBO drama Six Feet Under. Michael C Hall plays Dexter Morgan, a blood spatter specialist working in Miami for the police.

In this episode, Dexter thinks that the gig is up. The cops are really close to finding someone for the Bay Harbor Butcher murders and he knows that they are targeting someone in the precinct. At the end of the last episode, Doakes went through Dex’s apartment and found his blood trophies. What will Doakes do with the slides?

The answer was that Doakes didn’t act fast enough. For that, Doakes is doomed. Things get even more complicated with Lila. The woman doesn’t get a hint. Dexter will have to take care of her at some point. However, she’s is buying herself some time by befriending Dex’s friends at the office. Meanwhile Dexter is gritting his teeth in frustration.

Actually, he doesn’t, but he sounds frustrated from the voice over. Things get moving once more with Rita and Dexter will make sure that nothing jeopardizes that. Hopefully Lila will threaten this and Dexter will have to kill her.

I loved this episode. Dexter is really maturing as a great show. I can’t wait to see how the season will end. This was another great episode for Dexter. I recommend this show.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
