Storyline

Dexter goes after his next victim, Lance Robinson, but before he can complete the deed receives a call from Lumen who hasn't left Miami and has tracked down one of her attackers. She's shot the man and now doesn't know what to do. He goes to the site with Robinson unconscious in his car only to find that the man Lumen shot is alive and has now disappeared. When the police, in the form of his sister Debra, respond to a call at the site Dexter has to be quick on his feet. Still working on the Santa Muerte murderers, Debra sets up a sting for the Fuentes brothers at their favorite nightclub. It's Angel Batista however who comes up with a vital piece of evidence.

Black Humor, Drama, Thriller and … Masuka
8 July 2014 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Lumen changes her appearance wearing black wig and make-up on her face. Meanwhile Dexter captures the homosexual serial-killer Lance Robinson and when he is ready to kill him, he receives a phone call from Lumen telling that she is in Miami and has just killed one of the men that raped her. Dexter injects a drug in Lance, puts him in the trunk of his truck and heads to the warehouse where Lumen is. Soon he realizes that the man was not dead and has vanished. Debra prepares and operation with the other cops in the nightclub to ambush the Fuentes brothers. However they are summoned to the warehouse to investigate a call from prostitutes that had overheard shots in the area. Dexter is also requested to go and he needs to find Lumen's victim first. When Lance flees from his truck and the police arrive at the spot, his situation is extremely complicated.

"Everything Is Illumenated" is a great episode that combined black humor with drama and thriller. Lumen shots the man in a hunch and Dexter is concerned with the possibility that her victim is an innocent man. But the situation is resolved thanks to the flamboyant Masuka. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Tudo por Lumen" ("Everything for Lumen")
