Despite Dexter's best efforts, the conversation only goes on to emphasize just how much they have in common, but they diverge on the topic of love - Dexter thinks that it can't defy reason, but Isaak Pullo tells him that logically, he and Viktor should never have been together, as Viktor, unlike Isaak Pullo, was impulsive and always had something to prove. "I suppose the heart knows something that we just don't know." Dexter thinks that maybe the heart is just wrong, and given what Deb just told him it's hard to blame him for that attitude, but Isaak Pullo demurs - while it may be inconvenient and even dangerous, it's not wrong. Frustrated with how much Isaak Pullo is out-acting him in this scene, Dexter tells him they don't have to do this, and when Isaak Pullo disagrees, Dexter asks him what he thinks happens after, say, Isaak Pullo succeeds in killing him. Isaak Pullo is surprised to realize he never even thought about it, but supposes he'll find a secluded spot and while away his existence in obscurity. Dexter breathes, "Argentina," and even though that's not exactly where Isaak Pullo had in mind, it's nice that Dexter is tying this episode up in a thematic little bow. Isaak Pullo then notes that he and Dexter are outsiders, and wistfully and without sarcasm adds that were the circumstances different, he thinks they could have been great friends. I feel like I made that observation before, although maybe I didn't actually put it down in a recap, but I'll point out that what Dexter has in common with Isaak Pullo, he also has in common with Hannah, so maybe Dexter needs to get out of this gay bar before the go-go boys come around with tequila shots. But he gets beaten to the punch, as Isaak Pullo pays the check (Dexter flinches when he reaches for his wallet and gets a hilarious "Oh, come on" face from Isaak Pullo in return) and vanishes into the night...
