Dexter (2006)

11 corrected entries

Ricochet Rabbit - S6-E10

Corrected entry: Travis is revealed to be imagining Professor Gellar and it was actually him who was the sole DDK. Although it's a great plot twist, it doesn't make sense since in the last episode, while Travis and Dexter are together in the car outside the University, Dexter sees Gellar walk into the building. I believe Dexter even acknowledges seeing him when he says "Gellar."


Correction: In the moment, when Gellar walks along, Dexter closes his eyes.

Crocodile - S1-E2

Corrected entry: In the scene where Dexter and his sister find the ice truck parked on the side of a busy road, you can see that the truck is a side loader, meaning it has doors on the sides. This is also the truck that Dexter saw in episode 1. This truck however turns into a back loader in the next shot when they enter the truck. They roll up the door and go in the back, even though the truck does not have a back door.Also about the truck, Dexter says that it is running to keep the back refrigerator cold, however this type of unit plugs in at night to cool it down and the metal plates inside keep it cold not the engine.


Correction: Later in the show, the truck is being dismantled. It indeed opens from the back and the sides.


Goodbye Miami - S8-E10

Corrected entry: It shows the guy drilling a hole in someone's head alive on the video of his kill, but when they described his killings earlier in the season they said the drills were postmortem.



Correction: Different kills. Earlier postmortem was the first brain surgeon kill. The subsequent video of the live video of the brain surgeon is the killing of Zach Hamilton.

The British Invasion - S2-E12

Corrected entry: If the police pulled Doakes' fingerprints from the gas after the explosion, wouldn't they have found Lila's too? Also, you never hear about Lila from the police again. Don't you think after Deb kicks her out of Miami and then finds out she burned the place down that they would have tried to find her? Especially if her prints were in the cabin.

Correction: They may well have found her prints, and they may well have hunted for her, but as with many of Dexter's victims she has disappeared. A significant number of Dexter's victims are wanted criminals who mysteriously vanish and they are never mentioned on the show again. This doesn't mean the police aren't still looking for them.

What's Eating Dexter Morgan? - S8-E3

Corrected entry: Deb's boss hands her a water bottle infused with some nutrients to counteract her hangover which she is shaking in her right hand when Dexter comes into the room. When Deb gets up to leave with Dexter, she no longer has the water bottle, nor is it on her boss' desk. It has disappeared.


Correction: If you look closely, Deb is still holding the bottle in her right hand when she and Dexter enter the other room. We can hear her place it down before sitting at her desk.


The Getaway - S4-E12

Corrected entry: After Dexter kills Arthur Mitchell and drops him in the ocean there is a flashback. You can see Dexter, Rita and the kids celebrating Harrison's first birthday in their backyard (there is a 1 on the cake). In season 5 however, we learn that Harrison is only 10 months old, and at the end of season 5, Harrison celebrates his first birthday at the beach in Miami.

Correction: This was a "flash forward." Dexter was imagining what his future would hold now that the threat of Arthur was gone.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the season finale of Season 4, when Arthur Mitchell threatens to steal his son's fillings from his teeth, his wife screams at him by his real-life name, "Jonathan" instead of "Arthur".



Correction: There is no mistake. The woman cries out "Jonah" to her son, that's is name. In any case, Mr. Lithgow's first name is John, not Jonathan. TRIVIA: His middle name is actually Arthur.

The Damage a Man Can Do - S3-E8

Corrected entry: Batista arrives at the office and after a short exchange with Deb and Quinn about his relationship with Detective Gianna, he greets Laguerta with "Mornin' Lu". The clock on the wall indicates it is 1:35 in the afternoon.

Correction: This could just as easily be a character mistake. Maybe it really IS 1:35pm, but Batista just doesn't know what time it is.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In episode 7 of season 1, Doakes tells Debra she's just caught the worst serial killer in Florida history. At the time, the killer in question, the Ice Truck Killer, was blamed for four slayings. Ted Bundy confessed to 30 murders (albeit not all in Florida), while the "Gainesville Ripper" was convicted for five murders.

Correction: "Worst" is relative. Doakes may have been referring to the brutality of the murders than the actual body count. Jeffrey Dahmer may be deemed as a worse serial killer than Ted Bundy, even though he had fewer victims.

JC Fernandez

Show generally

Corrected entry: In episode 3 of season 1, Rita's husband's friend takes her relatively new Toyota Rav4 in exchange for a drug debt of "two ounces of blow." Two ounces of cocaine equal about $1,400-$2,000.

Correction: Oh, yes, because drug dealers are going to be so concerned about making sure that they get precisely the right compensation for their wares. She owes him a debt, he's punishing her by taking her car. Precise value doesn't matter in the slightest.


Father Knows Best - S1-E9

Corrected entry: Dexter is in the hospital and the doctors say there are complications because he has lost so much blood. Later, it is revealed he has a very rare blood type, AB-. It is true that this is the rarest blood type in most populations but I remember learning that AB blood types are the "universal acceptors" because they have no antibodies and can therefore accept A or B type blood. Of course it is preferable to give him the correct blood type but if it was really urgent shouldn't they give him any blood he could accept?

Correction: AB+ blood is the universal recipient, not AB-. People with AB- blood can only receive A-, B-, O- or AB- blood type. However, this comprises about 15% of the U.S. population. If Dexter was type B-, he could receive O- and B- blood, which comprise about 8% of the U.S. population. And finally, if he got the short end of the stick and had type O- blood, like about 6.5% of Americans, he could only receive type O-.

Isaak Sirko: You didn't kill Victor out of vengeance. I have a feeling you're a different kind of animal. The question is...what kind are you, Dexter Morgan?
Dexter: The kind who hunted your friend down and strapped him to a board and put a plastic bag on his head and crushed his skull with a fire extinguisher. The kind who's gonna do the same thing to you, give or take the fire extinguisher.



When they are at the crime scene, you can plainly see the camera and camera man reflected in Special Agent Lundy's sunglasses several times. When it is a close up shot, it is even more obvious.



(POSSIBLE SPOILER) When Masuka brings up the list of doctors authorized to get the M99, Dexter removes his alias note that Dexter's fake alias (used to get the M99 tranquilizer) is Dr. Patrick Bateman. Patrick Bateman is the lead character of "American Psycho". This was most likely an intentional "easter egg" of sorts within the show.
