  • Dexter plays with the icecream truck killer.

    Dexter takes out another bad guy during this episode. I don't think I've given the term serial killer enough consideration. He kills a man who gets drunk and kills with his car, over and over again. It's not the traditional serial killer that I think of when I hear those two words. I think more messier and more one on one attention. The finger nails in the icecube a novel idea. I wonder why they were painted so many different colors. Dexter thinks it was a message to himself. I wonder what specific message they send.

    Rita and Dex get closer. I like the relationship, but I'm slighly confused about two things. Dexter can't have feelings for people but he seems to have them for her. Secondly, I thought he was dating her because she wasn't interested in sex. It seems like he might be in denial here. When she iniates he seems more than willing to go along. I hope this becomes clearer in the next few episodes.
