    But did everyone REALLY catch what happened?

    When Miguel walked into the room to give the convict the handcuff key, he said "It ends here".

    And when Miguel actually gave him the key, he said something like "and now you need to stop sending threats to me and my family".

    So apparently this wasn't all about helping Dexter, like Dexter was led to believe. Miguel helping to kill the convict was more about helping himself!!! Miguel never even admitted to Dexter that he had a history with the guy.

    I don't think he really did. I think that was all selling the story.

    No spoiler tags because it is vague.

    Dexter is the one that brought up going after the convict. Miguel just said that to the convict to trick him.

    Ahhh hahaha!!!
    I knew people would miss the underlying plot here.
    :D
    Yes, Dexter was the one who brought up wanting to kill that particular convict ... but that doesn't mean Miguel didn't also have a prior history with the same convict.

    Yes, it's quite a coincidence.
    And one that even Dexter didn't consider when he made the choice.
    The show's writers are frickin' awesome to come up with that subplot!!!

    Think about what you two just said versus the following.

    What "story" was "being sold" and "to whom"?
    Why would Miguel need to "trick" a convict into breaking out of prison?

    What "trick" was being played by Miguel asking the convict to leave Miguel's FAMILY alone?

    The convict would have been happy to leave the prison whether he actually knew Miguel or not ... AND ... would have had no reason to take agression towards Miguel's family if Miguel was the person helping him to escape ... UNLESS THEY HAD A HISTORY!!!

    If I was the Assistant DA, helping to break someone outta prison, the LAST SUBJECT I'm going to bring up with the convict is my own family. Why even plant such a seed into the convict's head unless there was a really good reason to bring it up!!!
    ;)
    Have no fear though, I'm quite certain that this subplot is going to be exploited in the upcoming episodes somehow. What the show's writer did with just that ONE LINE was way too good to never get touched upon again.

    Genius I say!!!
    Simply Genius!!!

    If that is indeed true it's a very nice subplot. From the preview of next weeks episode I just thought Miguel would just start wanting Dexter to go after people that don't fit his code.

    Based on the description of the upcomming episode, this might be an issue:
    Miguel offers Dexter a new potential victim, but after properly vetting her, Dexter isn’t sure she fits the Code. When he informs Miguel of this, he reacts with anger, making Dexter believe the new friendship is in danger. An old sickly friend of Dexter’s, Camilla, reinforces this idea, when she asks Dexter to help end her life, insisting she would never ask a friend to do something against his conscience. Meanwhile, Rita finds out that Sylvia is beginning to suspect her husband, Miguel, is having an affair. Debra ends up revealing to Anton that he is being used as bait to lure the Skinner, forcing her to find new way to find the Skinner. As a result, Anton realizes Debra cares for him more than he thought.

    OK, this week's episode was sort of a transitional one - preparing us for the big finish. BTW, anyone care for a slice of key lime pie? :)

    Previews for next week are going to make things very interesting.

    That was a deep episode. Camilla got what she wanted though.

    Well, the fireworks are starting.

    All I know is that Dexter is going to have to figure out how to handle his new best friend. I just don't see things ending well for Miguel. Then there's Ramon who could become Dexter's antagonist next season, if he survives this one.

    I think Miguel is going to get knifed by Dexter at some point. He defiantly makes a interesting twist to the show. I don't think we are at the bottom of the hole skinner thing either.

    I agree. And even if not by Dexter, he's going to get killed-off like everyone else who knows Dexter's "secret". I will say that Jimmy Smits has truly made the Miguel role his own. Kudos to whoever saw fit to cast him, because I never would have thought of him for that part in a million years! /steve

    I think it's about time for Miguel to "feel the steel"

    I think it's ovious that Miguel is going to have to go! What a great story line so far though. It maybe one of the top 3 shows on TV IMHO.

    He has to kill him, but Miguel has proven himself to be one step ahead of dexter. The trick will be to kill him AND make sure that the "secret" isnt in a "dead mans switch" somewhere that will expose dexter. Seeing how he is in the DAs office and seems to know what dexter wants, how can he be sure there isnt a file in his desk labeled "open if I die" that would expose him??? I hate the character and he's incredibly annoying. I cant wait to see how they kill him!

    I wonder what Miguel's brother (Ramon) is up to these days.

    We haven't seen him since Miguel got him out of the illegal interrogation charges. Remember he gave up his police shield as a compromise for Maria not bringing him up on the charges.

    Only 3 episodes left in the season!!!
