Read on for a preview of tonight's episode.
Despite his efforts to stir the investigation of FBI Special Agent Lundy (Keith Carradine) and his task force in another direction with his "Presto Manifesto," Dexter's scheme eventually proved to be futile. With a little help from Chopin's music, the brilliant Lundy put some of the pieces together and figured out that the Bay Harbor Butcher could just be right under their noses.
In the eighth episode of season 2, the suspense intensifies as the Miami Metro Police unearth even more clues leading to the “Bay Harbor Butcher.” As Lundy and Deb suspect that the killer is among the police force, a nosy neighbor (Bruce Weitz) supplies Deb and Batista with a lead in the case.
After last week's episode in which Dexter's new love interest Lila (Jaime Murray) resorted to burn her artwork and studio, whether because she's craving Dexter's attention, jealous or just up to a manipulative scheme, Dexter becomes a little doubtful of her. Soon, he realizes that Lila is becoming too attached and decides that “recovery” isn't working for him. Later, he is attacked by an assailant he recognizes as the “rededicated serial killer” who murdered his mother.
airs tonight at 9pm ET/PT on Showtime.
