Storyline

Life is good for Dexter. His relationship with Rita is going really well and he's thrilled when Cody asks him if he would come to his school on Dad's day. He's also disposing of certain individuals according to his father Harry's code of conduct. He chooses his next victim, a drug dealer known as Freebo but on the night in question finds that a stranger is in the house. Dexter is attacked and kills the man who turns out to be Oscar Prado, the younger brother of a highly respected Assistant District Attorney Miguel Prado. Dexter can't quite figure out what Oscar was doing in the house and is bothered by the fact that he has killed someone outside of Harry's code. Dexter's sister Debra is put in charge of the Prado case by newly promoted Sgt. Angel Batista but her big mouth gets her into trouble. She is also approached by an officer from Internal Affairs who have an interest in a new squad member, Joey Quinn, but she refuses to cooperate. Written by garykmcd

Awesome Start
3 September 2017 | by jetkotSee all my reviews

The First two seasons turned me into a huge fan of this Series. Micheal C Hall essays the title role effortlessly. There is an awesome eerie feeling as the third instalment starts. Julie Benz is hot. Many scenes make you jump to the edge of your seat. The Murders begin and Dexter starts to kill the bad guys.. Brilliant show . I loved Jennifer Carpenter, David Zayas too.
