Once he has caught up with Maria, he tells her that he heard her talking about Ellen being possibly sick. He read something about a stomach flu going around and blah, blah, lie, just need to find out about Ellen. She says that she still hasn't heard from Ellen, and she's a little worried. Dex VO's that he's worried too.
He arrives at Ellen's home office and VO's that, if she were sick, this is where she would be. He finds her car still in her driveway. He says she could have gone for a long walk, borrowed a friend's car, or maybe she's in a coma in a hospital after an accident. He gets into her home and VO's that there are no signs of foul play, however, Harry taught him to be suspicious. He sprays something on the floor and then flashes a light over it. Traces of blood everywhere. He says out loud, to himself, that Miguel wouldn't do this. They had agreed that Ellen Wolf was innocent. Meanwhile, Harry is holding the hand of dead Ellen and waving "hello." Dexter resists. It was just blood and Miguel wouldn't even know how to dispose of a body -- unless...he buries it in an open grave. Harry uses Ellen's dead hand to make a thumbs-up sign. You know, as the season has progressed, it looks like Dexter is starting to agree with dead Harry a little more. Granted, it's all in his head, but still. It's nice to see the father and son coming back together.
Rita is preparing for an open house when someone comes in. It's Miguel and he has flowers. Rita tells him that Syl wasn't up for working today, so she's staging the open house for her. Miguel tells her she's a good friend, then he tells her that she should have the flowers. Nice effort there, Prado. Rita thinks about it then tells him she will make sure Syl gets the flowers. He turns to leave and Rita stops him. She is so bold as to tell him (nicely) that he's an idiot for taking Syl for granted. She's still the beautiful exciting woman that he married, and he'd better recognize. He says that he's not having an affair and she replies that it may true, but he violated her trust. He says that his world is falling apart a little bit with Oscar, Ramon, and his cases. Rita reminds him that the same things are falling apart for Syl -- she is his partner. He says, "You're a wise person, aren't you?" She says that she's learned from her many mistakes -- Miguel calls it insight. He pulls out two chairs and says that he will follow her lead -- she should point the way.
