Storyline

Having identified one of Lumen's attackers, Cole Harmon, Dexter set out to do what he does best. He attends one of Jordan Chase's seminars and the plan is to rent a hotel room next to Cole Harmon, who is Chase's head of security, and eliminate him there. He shows Lumen how to prepare a killing room but events don't quite unfold as planned. In the end, Dexter gets a vital clue that identifies another of the men who attacked her. Lumen also has to deal with her ex-fiancé who suddenly shows up in Miami. At the station, the fallout from the shootings at the night club begins to take its toll. It's pretty obvious that Lt. Laguerta isn't going to take the rap for the botched operation. Debra sees the writing on the wall when Angel Batista tells her he hasn't written his report yet and is still going over what happened. She feels betrayed by an unexpected source but also gets support where she least expects it. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

At the ending shows the fired cop Stan Liddy who was hired by Detective Quinn to investigate Dexter. He was taking pictures from the dock of Dexter and Lumen dumping garbage bags overboard miles out to sea at night. The pictures he was looking at on the camera were impossible to take for at least four reasons. 1) The angle was from about 45* deg, way to high 2) The 800 mm telephoto lens on his camera would require a tripod to hold steady, blurry pics 3) Night time would require long exposure additionally causing blurry pics 4) That size telephoto lens significantly cuts the amount of light exposure in addition to being a night shot would require night vision, pics would be green.

Quotes

[first lines]
Jordan Chase: [violent animal imagery in black and white] We are born primal. Conceived with the impulse to fight for what we desire. It's written in our genes. It's engraved in our souls. But we've traded the wilderness for pavement, trees, for skyscrapers. We've lost touch with our instincts, with what we are. We have fallen from nature's grace.
Jordan Chase: [on stage, to crowd] But we shall be delivered!
Seminar audience: [cheering]
Jordan Chase: [amplified over crowd] It's time to tap into your primal selves and seize the power of instinct...

Scape Goat
10 July 2014 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Dexter participates of Jordan's Chase's seminar and is invited to visit him in his suite. LaGuerta does not assume her mistake and Debra becomes her scape goat. Lumen receives an unexpected phone call and meets her ex-fiancé in a restaurant in Miami. Dexter plans a scheme with Lumen to catch Cole in the hotel and he asks Lumen to buy plastic and other stuff. Liddy forces a car crash at the parking area of a supermarket to get Lumen's personal data. Dexter is forced to go to Jordan's stage to tell what he felt when he found Rita dead. Meanwhile, Cole sees Lumen and she flees to her room. However Dexter saves Lumen and their room becomes Cole's kill room. While leaving the hotel, Dexter meets Jordan and makes an important discovery. Later, Liddy takes photos of Dexter and Lumen in the boat dumping Cole's remains in the water.

In "Take It!, Dexter gets rid of another rapist and finds a clue of who might be another attacker. Debra is used as scape goat by LaGuerta. Dexter's secret life is in danger with the snoopy Liddy. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Vá Pegar" ("Go to Take It")
