Cheers: Jimmy Smits Has Dex Appeal
Jimmy Smits and Michael C. Hall
Cheers to Jimmy Smits for turning up the heat on Dexter. In his best role since NYPD Blue'sBobby Simone, the Emmy-winner smolders as Miguel Prado, an ambitious Miami DA who befriends Michael C. Hall's titular blood-spatter expert, unaware the heretofore "ethical" serial killer accidentally offed Miguel's possibly not-guilty brother, Oscar.
It was nerve-wracking enough when Dex had his sister's old bloodhound of a boyfriend (Keith Carradine) on his trail last season. Now Miguel alone knows our quasi-hero also killed Freebo, the sleaze everybody else in the Miami PD believes murdered Oscar — and that's only brought him closer to Dexter.
As plot twists go, this one's a real killer.
