    This episode was very slow and I think that can be attributed to the fact that we have to move away from the ice truck killer case that really bagan to heat up at the end of last season and kind of get a feel on what this season will be about. I liked Dexters portrayal of "The Killer who can't kill anymore" kind of attitude, though Im glad that its only going to last this lone episode it would seem. The scenes with Rita were all really well done, aside from Dexter I would say she is the character who has been the most devoloped since the beginning of the show. The rest of the episode did feel to drag on a little more then I wanted it too. It's really hard to get into any of the characters (for me) aside from really Deb, Dexter, and Rita. Doakes, the two lt's, and the rest of the police force just is not an interesting storyline. I wonder where they are going with this Doakes v Dexter thing, seems like soemthing that is going to have to come to a resolution eventually.
