Ethan Turner is a character in DEXTER. He was a bluebeard who had killed at least two of his wives and took their money and assets.


Season ThreeEdit

Miguel Prado mentions him in a conversation with Dexter Morgan. According to Miguel, he got away with his first wife's murder by staging it as an overdose of pain meds. More recently, he killed his second wife while on a cruise in international waters where Miguel has no jurisdiction. Dexter decides to investigate Turner himself.

Dexter watches Ethan at a resort/hobby store and makes casual conversation with him. Once he discovers that Ethan is headed on a cruise to Bimini, Bahamas, Dexter follows him onto the ship. Once on board, he creeps up on Ethan after he gets out of the shower in his room and knocks him out.

Dexter kills Ethan.

Dexter laments that, due to the ship's schedule, he has to rush through his usual ritual. He plays loud music from an iPod and stuffs Turner's mouth to keep the noise down, then, not having time to savor the moment, quickly kills Turner, dismembers him, and dumps his remains out of one of the ship's portholes. Like his second wife, Ethan is later declared missing when he is not found on the ship. Believing that Dexter is at Mercy Reef, Miguel sends a coastguard to look for him while Rita is sick in the hospital. This fact along with the sudden disappearance of Ethan, leads Miguel to conclude that Dexter is a vigilante killer and soon afterwards the 2 work together until the relationship comes to a bitter end, when Miguel violates Harry's code by killing an innocent.
