It’s the season premiere of Dexter. Lila is dead. Dexter is back at work. His life with Rita is going well. Dex does something stupid when he moves in to kill Freebo. He kills someone else. He wasn’t prepared to find out who it was he killed. At least no one is on Dex’s case.
Dex is able to move on, to get by his father’s death while Deb is still stuck. I thought that this was a great way to start the third season of Dexter. I recommend this show, it was filled with interesting bits.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Dex realizes that there is something about Miguel that he’s not telling him. He’s got some psychopathic tendencies, he tries to manipulate people. Dex realizes that he’s been duped. He tries to teach Miguel a lesson, but to no avail.
The Skinner case proceeds and Deb makes some progress. Dex tries to dupe Miguel as well. He’s a master at the art and for once, he hasn’t got to pretend to have emotions.
* * * * *
Dexter wakes up and starts his morning routine. Last night, Miguel and Dex killed a man. This morning, Syl drops by. Dex says that he spent most of the night with Miguel. Dex says that they were together until midnight. Miguel only got home an hour ago. Syl thinks that Miguel is having an affair. Dex leaves for work. He drops by to see Miguel. Miguel is pretty happy this morning. Miguel says that he went to a bar named Jack’s Hideaway last night. That was the bar where Dex grabbed a wife killer. Dex suspects that Miguel is lying to him.
Dex is checking Anton’s place for blood. He finds none. Baptista is there with Quinn. They find that Anton must have gotten hit on the head while taking out the garbage. There was a fight. The Skinner has got him. Deb wants to find George King, but he’s still missing. They have nothing on Mario.
King is already working on Anton. Anton has already got a piece of skin missing from his back. Anton tries to get out of it, but King has a big knife. He’s wiping the blood off. He already cut Anton twice. He wants to know where Freebo is.
Dex overhears LaGuerta talking on the phone with Ellen. Ellen just missed motion in court. Deb and Quinn are sitting on King’s house. Deb is about to lose it. Dex checks up on Miguel. Miguel wants to meet to discuss another project. Dex ducks this one.
King comes home. They take him in for questioning. He doesn’t say much. Dex has been watching. He says that there is something about King. Dex says that all of the creepy guys have some sort of code. Since King keeps saying that he learned respect in Nicaragua, maybe Deb should try deference on King.
Dex checks up on Ellen through Maria, but she hasn’t heard from her. Dex checks at her home office, but she isn’t here. At least she isn’t answering her door. Dex enters and doesn’t find anything. Dex checks with the luminol and finds traces of blood. As far as Miguel knows, the best place to dispose of a body is in an open grave.
Miguel comes by to see Syl, but she wasn’t feeling well. Rita is running the open house for Syl. Rita tells him that things will fall apart for Syl if he doesn’t do something about it. They have a frank talk.
Deb goes back to see King and she’s trying to be respectful. Instead, she jumps on him. She tosses him on the floor and tries to make him tell her what he did. Anton is stashed underneath a busy bridge. Quinn admits that he was using Anton when Deb is rethinking what to do.
Dex is checking on the four graves that Miguel could have chosen. He finds Ellen’s body. Miguel killed her and stashed her there. Dex thinks that she didn’t deserve this. Harry tells him that there will be many more.
Dex meets Miguel for lunch. Miguel says that he could get King out in an hour and they could kill him together. He confronts him about killing Ellen. Dex tells him that he got rid of Ellen because she got in his way. Miguel says that he will kill alone from now on. Dex knows that Miguel thinks that he is untouchable. He will correct that. He goes back to the grave and makes it so that Ellen’s body will be found quicker than later.
Deb tells LaGuerta that King is a ghost. Baptista, Deb, Quinn and LaGuerta are trying to make the case to Miguel, but he isn’t helping much. He’s already planning on killing King. LaGuerta takes him aside and wants him to help. He promises to do so.
Baptista gets the call to go to the cemetery. It’s the Ellen Wolf case. She was strangled, beaten and stabbed repeatedly. Dex made sure that the body was dumped cleanly. He didn’t plan on having Miguel caught. LaGuerta arrives. She can’t believe it. No one is untouchable. That’s what Dex wants Miguel to learn. Miguel arrives. Dex just wanted to make a point and Miguel got it. Dex thinks that Miguel is being facetious again. He calls him wise. Dex can’t tell if Miguel is lying to him or being honest. Maybe that’s the sign of the true psychopath.
Rita tells Dex that she intervened. She tells him that Miguel told her that she was a very wise person. He told her that she gave him some insight and that she had saved his life. This is what Miguel told him earlier, word for word. It’s BS. When did Miguel start lying to Dex. Dex thinks there is something going on with the shirt that Miguel gave him. He’s going to test the blood.
Miguel comes to the station. Things are pretty bad. Since King hasn’t ask for legal counsel, Miguel can’t offer him any deals, technically. If the tape shows up in a year in court, they will discredit Miguel. Baptista says that the cameras aren’t working. Miguel goes inside and talks. He comes out and says that he got nothing from King, who’s about to be released. Dex goes into his lab to test the shirt. Deb has got an idea. She drives Mario home. Mario notices that the palm trees have been trimmed. Mario says that he has a building somewhere that he rents for cash. It’s underneath a highway. She posts a patrol car and picks up Quinn, who’s paying off the tree trimmers.
King is walking down to his little shack. The cops arrive just as King pulls up to his building. When they can’t get to door open, Quinn drives his car into the door. They find Anton, who’s still alive.
The blood on the shirt is bovine, cow’s blood. He didn’t create a monster, he was used by one. Dex imagines that he destroys his office. Miguel walks in and wants to go golfing with him. Dex pretends.
