...and then we fade to later, with police on the scene. Jamie is recounting her experience to Quinn, and admits that she heard a raised voice, although she doesn't know to whom it belonged. Elsewhere, Dexter is telling Batista that Price was unresponsive to his efforts to revive him, so it looks like Price is the one who's a fitting subject for a book. Quinn comes over and asks Dexter if he and Price were arguing, and Dexter uses the truth as best he can as he says that Price accused him of messing up the Randall blood work, and that caused him to raise his voice a bit. From the living room, Masuka notes that the amount of blood from Price indicates a wound that couldn't possibly have killed a man, although if he died instantly, wouldn't the blood have stopped flowing? Such questions will have to wait, since Deb is just arriving to see her...buddy? Potential romance? Partner in true-crime nerdery? lying dead on the floor, and she marches straight over to Dexter and demands an explanation... oh wait, no, she just whines that she can't even have a drink with someone without him dying. I mean, I guess Dexter talking to Price about Randall's last words is actually a reasonable enough cover story, but after everything that's happened this season and especially in the last two episodes, I can't believe Deb's not at least raising an eyebrow in Dexter's direction. Then again, it is fairly unlikely that Dexter would, to use an expression fitting this episode, shit where he eats. Either way, Deb at least has the major idea correct - she's sure that Hannah poisoned Price because he suspected her of being an active killer, and she's going to pick her up and run a tox screen on Price's body. When she's gone, Dexter gets that particular face that only appears when he's completely lost control of a situation. Not surprisingly, it's been a lot more common this season.
