Dexter discovers another dark secret of Harry. It’s something that is finally revealed to him after all these years. And to top that off, Doakes is the one who puts him on the trail. Dex is busy trying to frame Doakes. He also wants to rekindle his relationship with Rita. Things are going well.
Deb and Lundy have a little talk about their future and things just go out of hand.
I thought this was another great episode of Dexter. What will happen? Will Dexter finally kill Lila? Will he be able to frame Doakes? I can see that Dexter might need to damage Doakes’ mind in order to make the frame truly great. Maybe some drugs will do what he wants. The last two episodes of the season have been leaked on the internet, but I haven’t yet had the time to watch them. Hopefully I will be able to do it this weekend.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
