Meanwhile, Dexter's sister, Debra begins investigating the mysterious killings with Dexter's help, but who lets her take the credit. She then finds a stolen refrigerated truck which contains a gruesome message. Dexter also begins stalking his next victim, a wealthy businessman who gets acquitted of a drunk driving charge. Elsewhere, Sgt. Doakes investigates the murder of an undercover vice cop whom was investigating a powerful drug cartel leader, named Carlos Guerrero, while Lt. Laguerta also learns that Doakes was secretly involved with the murder victim's wife.

Goofs

When Dexter's browsing the reports about Matt Chambers' past DUI infringements, the last page shows the title of an article in South Boston Daily claiming "Matt Rasmussen of South Boston Arrested" though the rest of the article is about Matt Brewster - a name used in Albuquerque. The article is identical to the previous one in Albuquerque Times Standard except for the first couple of words. See more »

Stay focused, Dex!
14 October 2007 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

Only the second entry in the "Dexter" TV-show and the concept already slightly begins to weaken. There's less blood & excitement in episode two then there was in the pilot, but also the story lines start to revert to clichéd situations and the characters already start to develop towards typical cop stereotypes. The entire Miami police department is still after the Ice Truck serial killer, but he hasn't made any new moves apart from secretly contacting Dexter and challenging him to a showdown. There are two supplementary (and seemingly forced) sub plots in the second episode, namely the murder investigation of an undercover police officer and Dexter himself digging deeper into the trial of a recidivist hit-and-run felon. Completely opposite to the events in the pilot, where the camera deliberately zoomed in on the gory set pieces, the blood & splatter sequences now seem rushed and limited. The dialogs and interactions between the characters become funnier ("glad to see that sexual harassment seminar paid off") but Dexter's narrative thoughts & impressions are still whiny and a little dull to endure. If you speak Spanish, you can probably also predict the future character developments (like that of Officer Angel Batista) but I had no idea what he and the lieutenant were saying. James Remar is more clearly visible in this second episode, as Dexter also continues to have extended flashbacks about his adolescence. I hope the next installments will get much better, or at least equal the quality level of the pilot again.
