'Dexter' Recap: Breaking Free From Deb's Watchful Eye
If last week was about Dexter's world closing in around him with Louis and Deb on his back, this week he tries to take care of business. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to him, Dexter's killing of Viktor becomes exposed.

Dexter ends up choking him before Deb intervenes.
