Dexter Recap: “A Beautiful Day”
Besides Deb, Dexter’s personal life was going well. At work, things quickly became complicated. A new serial killer was removing a part of his victims’ brains. The killer took out the portion that controls empathy, which is the emotion psychopaths lack.
Miami Metro Homicide brought in a specialist, Dr. Evelyn Vogel (Charlotte Rampling). Dexter was nervous she might catch on to him being a serial killer, especially when she brought The Bay Harbor Butcher up in conversation. He tried to keep his distance.
Later, Vogel gave Dexter some disturbingly gruesome pictures a child had drawn of a murder scene. They were pictures 10-year-old Dexter had drawn. He angrily confronted Vogel, who calmly said he couldn’t kill her. She didn’t meet Harry’s Code.
Will Dexter have to neutralize a new threat to keep his secret identity hidden?
Elsewhere, LaGuerta’s death motivated Batista (David Zayas) to stay on the force. Now, he was lieutenant. His sister, Jaime (Aimee Garcia), and Quinn (Desmond Harrington) were finally dating, but behind Batista’s back. Meanwhile, Quinn was worried about Deb, and occasionally helping Deb with her cases.
