Lila is still meddling in Dexter’s affairs, and he doesn’t like it. He tries to warn her off, but she doesn’t understand who Dexter really is. Doakes is still a prisoner and Dexter hasn’t decided yet what to do with him. Dexter ponders his life and wonders if he should give himself up. He knows that if he does so, the people around him like Deb and Rita will be destroyed.
This seems to be part one of the season finale. The story ends with a cliffhanger and we wonder what will happen in the season finale. It was an excellent episode, one of the best that I’ve seen. I recommend Dexter wholeheartedly.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
