    A bit of a step down from the first episode. The first episode was quite fast paced, and this episode in comparison, was very slow paced. So I think this show was still just finding it's footing. Slow paced isn't necessarily bad, just not as entertaining as the last one, although it did bring us some development, sort of.

    Deb becomes homicide, and Dexter gets one step closer to finding out who the ice truck guy is. The murders are almost poetic and well thought out which I'm always impressed with on this show. Another thing that is commendable is the writing of the beautiful monologues Dexter says.

    Michael C. Hall is doing a great job, but I think the writers need to realize this is his show considering how weak the supporting cast is. Keep the focus on Dexter, and this show will survive. Quite an ending to this episode, I enjoyed the side case better than the main plot. Interesting ending, good episode overall.
