Dexter S04E02 “Remains to be Seen” Episode Recap

by on Oct.05, 2009, under Episode Recaps

Dexter-S04E02-1The second episode shoots off from last week’s premiere with a view of flashing lights and our hero, Dexter, trapped in his van.  Concsious in the ambulance, but suffering from a bout of amnesia Dexter fears that Benito Gomez is still in his car, in neatly wrapped pieces.  Dexter must take care of his remains before someone finds them. Keeping viewers in delicious suspense we follow Dexter after he refuses Doctor’s orders to stay in for observation.

Suffering from concussion and memory loss, Dexter attempts to retrace his steps to locate the remains of Benny Gomez before someone else does.  Harry makes many appearances during these scenes, hammering home that he is “spinning too many plates”.  Something’s got to give.

Desperate in his search, Dexter hopes that no one is murdered today, so he can focus on finding his lost luggage.  Naturally, Dexter has no luck and is forced to investigate another “Vacation Murders” crime scene.  Where he also spots Quinn pocketing cash from the murder victims home, Quinn knows he was spotted, but it’s too late. With time running out to find Gomez, Harry assists and Dexter finally realises he must go to the beginning of the night… the boxing ring where he finds the remains of Gomez stashed in a boxing bag.

Quinn quickly changes tone towards Dexter knowing that he was seen grabbing the cash.  Dexter with no time and no patience blows up at Quinn, yelling “I have a life, you have a life.  Let’s just leave it at that.” Leaving Quinn literally speechless.

Also Rita discovers that Dexter lied about the severity of the accident, meets him at the Miami Metro and demands that he be cut some slack from his work duties.  Dexter explains that all the members in the office work the same, and that’s the way it is.

Meanwhile Lundy & Deb meet to discuss the Lisa Bell Case which is part of the ‘Trinity Killer” investigation.   Conversation turns personal as both exclaim that they are happy and that nothing will happen between them.

With the day wrapped up, so to speak, Dexter relaxes in bed, finally able to get some sleep, as his eyes close, inches away from sleep… “Waahh waaahh waaahhhh” Baby Harrison cries…. “Fuck.”

All in all a pretty good episode, not quite as enthralling as the premiere.  I did really enjoy watching Dexter retrace his steps, tired and concussed.  Wondering; Did I do the smart thing or did I do something dumb and leave the body somewhere I should’nt?   Hardly turning into his overly-potty-mouth sister, but did anyone else notice that Dexter swore twice?  I wonder if this is part of a plotline where Dexter’s mask keeps slipping as his life becomes more complicated?

Rita is becoming quite an annoyance to me, in the first episode she’s ultra demanding on Dexter.  I mean, she’s regularly mentioned previously that she managed to raise two kids ‘all on her own’.  Now when she discovered that Dex’s accident was’nt so minor, she’s all up in his butt about how much his work is pressuring him!  Pah!

Next week’s episode “Blinded by the Light” will surely be interesting.  Dexter’s Dark Passenger will be hampered by a local effort in his neighbourhood to curb vandalism, added to this Rita insists on driving him anywhere.
