Quotes

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] So I made a mistake, it could have happened to anyone. Well, any murder. Not that murders typically care whether their victims are innocent or not. But why is it eating at me?

"Road Kill" is another episode of Dexter and Trinity, and the writers have put on stall the death of the serial-killer. This season is repetitive and after six or seven episodes, the plot is no longer engaging. Dexter rescuing Trinity is terrible and inconsistent with his code and feelings. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Problemas na Estrada" ("Problems on the Road")
