That night, Dexter comes home to Rita. If you thought we were going to get out of this episode without any wedding talk...WRONG. Rita has cake there -- she wants him to taste his favorite. He tries two types and she asks his favorite -- he responds that he's more in the mood for steak. He should know by now how she's feeling about the steak talk. He's asking for trouble. She reminds him that they're getting married and need to choose a cake for this damn wedding that we'll have to hear about forever. Dexter is distracted. He asks if Syl is still there and she says that she isn't, because she intervened. She says that Miguel thinks she's a very wise person. Uh oh. She adds that she just gave him some insight (Dexter is picking up on this) and he said he thinks she could save his life. Dexter's mind is spinning -- he knows that Miguel is a liar, but now he's wondering when the lying began. Rita asks him again which cake he liked -- but he's thinking about the shirt that Miguel gave him. He stands and says that he has to look at some blood. But, hazelnut. That's the cake he likes.
At the station, Maria and Angel are returning from Ellen's crime scene. He tells her to get home and get some rest. She is still visibly shaken, but she's not going home. She says that she has to do something. Angel sees Quinn and Deb and asks, nay pleads for developments on The Skinner case. They don't have anything, but suddenly Miguel shows up and says that he wants to help. He asks if King has legal counsel -- he doesn't, because he knows they don't have anything on him. Well, he can't make any offers to King if the guy doesn't have counsel, and the tape of him talking to him could come back to haunt him. Angel says that - nudge -- the camera has been on the fritz - nudge -- and it wouldn't surprise him - nudge -- if it didn't pick up anything at all. Nudge. So, Miguel goes into the interview room. He walks to the camera and turns it off.
Dexter is at his apartment and digs up the Freebo shirt.
Miguel comes out of the interview room. That's it. King is free. Huh? I'm confused. Which is kind of exciting. Dexter enters the station as King is being led out. He VO's that he hopes they meet again, for he'd like to get to know him better. But, how much can you really know about a person, he thinks as he sees Miguel. Then, he goes into his office and tests the blood on the shirt.
Deb is wondering what else they can do. Quinn says that they've got Mario, but they would essentially have to skin him before he'd talk. Deb smiles like she's got an idea and Quinn clarifies -- they won't be skinning Mario. No, she's got a better idea. She says she needs her partner for this.
