Dexter Season 4, Episode 9: "Hungry Man" - Recap

This Thanksgiving, Dexter is spending the day with his loved ones - and his most dangerous adversary, Trinity. While sharing in Trinity's holiday traditions, Dexter sees the killer in a new light. Meanwhile, Dexter's neighbor Elliot lends more than just a helping hand to Rita as she prepares her Turkey Day feast, and Deb makes an unsettling realization.

Everyone Gears Up for the Holiday

With Thanksgiving only a day away, everyone is finalizing what their plans are for Thanksgiving. Deb isn't too keen on spending it with Dexter and the family. But Dexter, refusing to take no for an answer, lays a guilt trip on thick by filming a home video of the kids pouting about their Aunt Deb. Deb caves in and agrees to go, but invites Masuka to tag along since he clearly has not other options.

Quinn's reporter girlfriend, Christina (I suppose the time has come to refer to her by name), tries to persuade Quinn into spending Thanksgiving with her with the promise of pecan pie. But she makes the mistake of using the term "girlfriend" and Quinn pretty much freaks and uses work as an excuse to get out of it spending Thanksgiving with her.

Trinity is in a bad mood after seeing Christina's front-page story about a serial bludgeoner. Dexter swings by and sees Trinity fighting with his son Jonah (snapping his trophies in half) and Jonah storms out and speeds off in his car. Dexter follows and tries to calm Jonah down as he begins to bash his own car in with a bat. He tells Dexter that his dad is not a good man and abuses him. Hoping his dad will not beat him senseless for destroying the car, he invites Dexter to their family Thanksgiving. Dexter agrees and later tells Rita he'll be running late to their family holiday because of work.

Dexter will have a very powerful enemy in Trinity. The next few weeks should be exciting.
