It’s the 3rd season 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 and strong language.
* * * * *
Without even knowing, Dex pushes Miguel beyond the brink thanks to Rita. Rita thinks that Miguel is having an affair and she wants to know more about his habits. He sort of implies that he is having an affair and Rita tells Syl, who confronts Miguel with LaGuerta. Dex tries to tell Miguel that after the wedding, they will go separate ways, but Miguel is having none of this. Miguel tries to screw with Dex by telling him that there will be an ethics probe into his sister Deb. Dex doesn’t take this well. He knows that Miguel took a trophy from Ellen, so he finds it easily enough at his place. He leaves a tag for a dry cleaner’s place, the place where Dex had the shirt cleaned. This was the shirt that Miguel said had Freebo’s blood on it, but Dex discovered that this was just bovine blood. He wanted to make sure that Miguel knew. Syl has kicked Miguel out and Miguel has reached out to someone to go after Dex.
I thought that this was a great episode. It leads into the season finale quite well. It’s funny how Miguel is turning out like a most capable serial killer ever. He’s in a position of power and he can manipulate events to his needs. His arrogance will be the death of him though.

Rita doesn’t know what to say to Syl. Deb was watching Aster. Anton is there. Dex asks Deb if she’s going to be a plus one to the wedding.
Cock suck, motherfuck, Anton we have to get up!
Deb’s colourful language
She sends him home. Anton thinks that there is more going on. Dex needs leverage. Ellen’s murder is the hot case. Toby Edwards is the suspect. He called Ellen three times. He called her from outside her home. Maria has found a witness. One of her wedding rings is missing.

Things go south with him. Anton is bleeding. Anton tells her that she needs to think about them as a couple seriously.
LaGuerta takes out her frustration on Dex. She doesn’t like running things without case file numbers. Miguel is getting LaGuerta drunk. They have only one lead. Toby saw an SUV with halogen lights at Ellen’s house. She’s vulnerable and he kisses her. Dex arrives and sees Miguel is there. Dex sees that something was going on. He’s got some leverage.
Dex comes home. Rita says that she told Syl about Miguel and LaGuerta. Syl has checked up on him. Syl walks up on them. She tells him to get out of her life. She leaves and Miguel goes after her.
The next day, Dex goes to his normal coffee shop. Miguel is waiting for him there. He says that the DA’s office is going out on an ethics probe on Deb. He says that he’ll keep an eye on Deb’s case while he keeps an eye on the Wolfe case. He’s trying to blackmail Dex. Dex thinks that he stepped over a line. Dex investigates at Miguel’s house. The only way he’ll back off is to get something on him that will get him down for murder. He’s trying to find Wolfe’s ring. Dex finds it in a cigar box. He leaves a message in the box and leaves the box half open.
