I guess being a serial murderer isn't all that bad...

Dexter heads into the file room (I guess, because there's a shitload of files in there), where a woman he knows works. She's played by Margo Martindale (the neighbor Nina from The Riches), and, according to IMDb, has no name on this show, which is weird. Anyway, Dexter gives her a donut and asks, "Anything new?" She grabs him a file while making small talk about keeping his hands clean, and wants to know what his interest in the file is all about. "You're charming, just like your father. Just don't get me fired." "Then who would I bring donuts to?" Hmm...she looks like she knows something he doesn't...

In his lab (which has some of the coolest pictures of blood spatter I've ever seen), Dexter is approached by Sergeant Doakes (Erik King, also of Oz fame), who asks aggressively, "Where the hell have you been?" "Crime scene." Doakes, not caring about Dexter's response, throws down some serious shade, as well as some bloody pictures from some "cokehead murders," and wants to know what Dexter thinks. Dex responds that the murders look sloppy and amateurish, and Doakes replies, "You give me the fucking creeps, you know that, Dexter?" Your biceps give me the creeps, dude. Seriously, do they need their own bed at night? Anyway, Doakes, who is a serious cock, tries to convince Dexter (after giving him loads of shit for no reason) that they're looking for a coke dealer, but Dexter doesn't look too convinced. Doakes says, "Well, get the fuck over there, then!" and leaves. Dexter wonders, "Why, in a building full of cops, all supposedly with a keen insight into the human soul, is Doakes the only one who gets the creeps from me." Good question, dude. Maybe there's more to him than meets the eye. Like the Transformers.

At the crime scene, Dexter is breaking down the blood patterns to a young-looking, possibly rookie, cop. On closer inspection, Dexter realizes that whoever did the killings knew how to use a blade, based on the castoff on the walls from the knife. Rookie cop says, "So, we're looking for a sushi chef?" Dexter humors him: "Yeah, sushi chef is possible. Wouldn't be my first choice, but hey, you never know!" You see? Why would Dexter go out of his way to humor this guy and boost his confidence if he really was "empty," as he so often claims? That's not part of his act. Or is it? Is he that calculated, or is he actually a nice guy who happens to kill people? Rookie: "Now what?" "Now I eat!" And by "eat," he means "plan murders."
