Life in suburbia doesn't get any easier for Dexter Morgan in Dexter's third episode entitled "Blinded by the Light" as he forces himself to blend in with the neighbors and be a father to Astor who's gotten even brattier than usual.  It's the perfect camouflage though for a serial killer who's just waiting to set his sights on the next murderer that gets in his way. Unfortunately, suburban life is ruining his style and it doesn't help that all his neighbors are now vigilantly watching out for the person responsible for all the vandals.

It turns out that the culprit is Andy, the father of teenage kid Jesse, whom Dexter initially thought is the one responsible for all the mess. Meanwhile, Deb is all confused about her feelings with Lundy as strangely pointed out by Masuka. And we get an idea that she's not really over him just yet when she's not so thrilled about boyfriend Anton staying in town so he can spend more time with her. And like Lundy, she's getting a little bit hooked with the Trinity Killer case as well.

Speaking of the Trinity Killer, we get some sort of idea on how he operates, the strict pattern he follows and how different he is from Dexter Morgan. In the season 4 opener, we witnessed how the Trinity Killer killed a young woman in a bathtub by bleeding her to death. Evidently, that's the first strike in the Trinity's pattern. This, according to Lundy, is followed by a mother of two falling to death and then the last one, a man, whom he bludgeons to death. We've yet to see the third one but I'm already excited to find out who it is just because there's a possibility that his next victim will be a high-profile character. Care to venture who? My money's on Quinn.

We still don't know what really makes the Trinity Killer tick but at least we know that he's got serious mommy issues and his killer urges has something to do with horrible things that happened in the past. And while the Trinity Killer is much more disturbing than any other killer Dexter has ever known, Dexter is fascinated with the fact that the Trinity has never been caught all these years even with rock star Lundy on his trail. Harry, on the other hand, has a pretty good theory on the Trinity Killer's recipe for success: He's not emotionally tied down! That's a big slap in the face for Dexter, who seems to be getting more and more visions of Harry each week as if to hint that he's sort of regretting his decision to tie the knot and "have it all."
