The First Good Friend
22 January 2011 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Miguel Prado is very close to Dexter, fishing with him in his boat. Dexter thinks that he can support simple joys of male bonding. But when Miguel decides to step further, Dexter brings the file of a white racist killer to test how far Miguel would go in his intent. However, Miguel surprises him and plots a plan to capture the despicable assassin. Meanwhile, Freebo's watchman Wendell Owens is murdered by the Skinner. Debra notes that his two last victims, Wendell and Javier, where murdered after her questioning them and Dexter and she conclude that the unbalanced Ramon might be the Skinner. Maria meets the lawyer Ellen Wolf that uses Maria's inside information to self-promote and damage the career of Miguel Prado. Detective Barbara Gianna finally accepts to have dinner with Angel.

"Si se Puede" is a reasonable episode where Miguel directly involves himself in Dexter's murder. My initial guess about the identity of the Skinner was totally wrong, so I have changed my review. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "É Possível" ("It Is Possible")
