Edward James Olmos and Colin Hanks are sitting in a restaurant, and EJO opines that people are afraid, but then notices that Colin Hanks's attention is focused on the waitress, who's currently servicing a nearby table. EJO looks very put-upon as he points out that Colin Hanks thinks the waitress is pretty, and then the girl comes over and asks "Trav" if she can get him anything else, filling his water glass while she's at it, and in the "EJO doesn't actually exist" corner that I referenced in the recaplet is the fact that the girl doesn't even acknowledge EJO. Of course, he could have declined water, so she may have assumed he was done already, but it's still weird. Against it, however, is not just the different MOs, also referenced in the recaplet (still upcoming here) that will lead Dexter to believe they're searching for two killers, but also the fact that those tableaus were intricate and practically impossible to execute for two people; one would be absolutely ridiculous. Colin Hanks, by himself, stole and wrangled four horses, not to mention a large venomous snake, put those mannequins together, etc.? No. Unfortunately, this scene and others in the episode feel off enough that I still have the feeling EJO doesn't exist, and that the show is going to rely on us to forget about those details I mentioned when they do the big reveal. Even when this show is good, it's not great. But anyway, the point is that Colin Hanks likes the waitress, and EJO doesn't seem too happy about it, which is probably not great for her.
DVO seriously is acting like he's learning for the first time that religious imagery and writings can be disturbing. Having ignored religion is one thing, but not having the slightest idea of, say, history is something else. He went to college, right? Deb then pops out in her new generic business attire, pops a beer, and bitches about her new job for a while until Jamie breezes through to run some laundry downstairs, as Harrison apparently had some sort of low-end blowout, and if Deb were smart she'd hold him for a while so she'd have an excuse not to wear the new clothes tomorrow. Dexter picks up Harrison sweetly, but clunks all over the moment by saying that he guesses "there are some things that even daddies can't fix." Harrison doesn't editorialize about that line by taking another dump, but I kind of wish he would.
