October 22, 2006 – "Let’s Give the Boy a Hand," and a foot, and a leg… Season 1, Episode 4

The Ice Truck killer finds a way to get under Dexter's skin and it's fun to watch Dexter's emotions pour, or rather just drip, out of him. Best lines: Interesting hand job. Angel: That's funny. Is it? It's nice to see some faces from other Showtime series Erin Daniels, Dana from the L Word pops in as the girl next doorShe plays a bit much without the 'm-u'. Favorite part is when the kid in the costume store wearing the president's mask turns around just as Dexter says the word, 'monster.' No killing in this one, just a lot of maiming. Which is nasty enough as it is, but c'mon, I've gotten myself all worked up to see some down and dirty serial killing and by gum, I want my money's worth. Showtime isn't free, you know. The Ice Truck killer's real purpose is in helping unravel the many layers of our fearless Dexter. ITK is having fun with him and it unnerves the strictly business Dex. The ITK's photographs replicate Dexter's past and force him to relive some childhood moments that reveal his struggle with adapting to his circumstances and coming to terms with his unique talents. Doakes unknowingly gets used as bait and nearly gets killed to bring down Guerrero. And it's all done so that his dead girlfriend's brother can get even with Doakes for sleeping with his sister in the first place. Debra is really starting to grow on me. She plays a little dumb, but she's kind of endearing. The lieutenant really has a problem with her and it's starting to get old. She needs to get over herself. My crystal ball shows some confrontation for the two of them in the future. Hopefully for Laguerta's sake she won't bother Debra so much that it ticks Dexter off and he has to add the lieutenant to his ever growing list of victims. Rita gives the perfect Halloween gift dressed as Lara Croft, but without Lara's, shall we say, 'healthy glow.' Dexter looks mortified, but somehow he goes with the proverbial flow. I say, 'what a fantastic girlfriend.' For anyone who's missed any part of the series, Showtime is having a Dexter marathon Saturday @ 8 PM. show less
