Last night, Dexter started to get back on track, even though he is still very much mourning Rita’s death and struggling with single fatherhood.
Dex once again finds a target, Boyd Fowler (Shawn Hatosy), a road kill pick up guy who he becomes suspicious of after he find blood in a moving van Fowler had recently rented. Dexter follows Fowler to a swamp where he dumped off a barrel and, sure enough, when Dexter goes back to see what’s inside, its the body of a dead woman. As the episode ends, Dexter looks around and finds several more barrels, which are most likely also filled with the remains of Fowler’s victims.
Fowler gives Dexter something to concentrate on (and a victim for next week’s episode) but he still has plenty to deal with at home. He, along with Astor, Cody and Harrison, move into his old apartment with Deb. Deb in the meantime goes to stay with Quinn, but, as their relationship develops, so does his suspicion of Dexter.
