...but to see Hannah, who opens the door and snarks, "Look who's not here again." Hee. After some stuff about Dexter not knowing what the term "booty call" is that I won't dignify, Dexter tells her that he's going to be busy for the next few days, and when she invites him to explain, he takes a moment and then comes clean about Isaak Pullo and Viktor, explaining that he killed one of Isaak Pullo's key guys. Hannah: "Well, it happens." HA! I'm not going to get tired of this consciousness of kind Hannah and Dexter have anytime soon. Hannah wonders what Dexter knows about Isaak Pullo, and when he confesses he knows next to nothing, she suggests that, even though the vetting process is unnecessary here for purposes of his code, Dexter do it anyway to see if he can dig up information that might be useful in planning his downfall. She even lends him her van, just in case Isaak Pullo knows his car. "Plus, it'll give you a decent excuse to come by and not see me again." They kiss, and then Dexter, not without wonder, tells Hannah he's never been able to talk about his kills with anyone before - not like he does with her, "no judgment, no fear, no panic." They agree that it's nice, and then hit the bedroom to celebrate. I wonder if they're going to start referring to this activity as "visiting Santa's Holiday Adventure."
At Nadia's, she tries to tell Quinn that she's only on the hook with Jason Gedrick for two more years, as he likes his dancers young. Well, he's someone who's familiar with the ravages of age, that's for sure. She makes Quinn promise that he'll never do anything for the Koshkas again, not even for her, and I don't know why they bother making him say the words if they're not even going to wait a scene for him to go back on them. You see, once Nadia goes to take a shower, Jason Gedrick turns up and tells Quinn that he'd like his assistance making sure the drug-moving events of the evening go smoothly, and if he doesn't, he'll release the recorded conversation of Quinn agreeing to steal Isaak Pullo's blood evidence he just so happens to have made. Oh, Quinn, you sad bastard.
As we see the Avon Lady is a large pool of his own blood, Lurch reports to Isaak Pullo that no one else is there. Lurch also IDs the Avon Lady as one of Jason Gedrick's men, and since Isaak Pullo knows that Jason Gedrick would never make such a move without approval from Kiev, it's clear that Isaak Pullo is no longer part of the Brotherhood. He then tries to tell Lurch that he doesn't need to stay with him, but Lurch is with Isaak Pullo to the end, which is kind of touching, in a Ukrainian-murderer kind of way. Isaak Pullo, probably realizing that building security isn't up to snuff, notes that they'll need a new place to stay, and then, when Lurch asks who Isaak Pullo thinks killed the Avon Lady, replies, "Well, that's a job for the police, isn't it?" It's good that he can keep his sense of humor at a time like this.
