Now home, Dexter's doing his research, starting with collecting the prints from the shot glass. He scans them into his laptop and starts checking them against AFIS records, as he VOs, "The good people of Florida only went so far as to validate their own assumptions that Matt Chambers is a Florida bad guy." Now all sorts of articles are popping up from his search about drunk-driving accidents involving Matt Chambers, a.k.a. Matt Rasmussen of South Boston, a.k.a. Matt Brewster of Albuquerque. Oh, boy, is he gonna die! Dexter has found his man, and he is pumped.
As he begins to prep his killing room, Dexter VOs, "My father taught me one thing above all others: be sure. And I am. Matt Chambers, Miami is your last stop. If God is in the details, and if I believed in God, then he's in here with me." Then, realizing the power cable for his saw isn't long enough: "I just wish he'd brought an extension cord." Heh. Word, that sucks. I'm sure you'll figure something out, though.
Over at Miami General Hospital (?), Doakes is crouched over Kara Simmons, who is conscious and getting prepped for an MRI. He's helping her drink water, as LaGuerta looks on suspiciously. I think it's fairly obvious at this point that Kara and Doakes had been enjoying some afternoon delight in their spare time until today's events. I mean, this scene doesn't really serve any purpose except to show us that we should think something is up. Duh.
Now it's double-date time. As Deb's boyfriend, Sean, talks about the ice block with the fingers, Dexter notices Guerrero in the distance, having live lobsters brought to him. "Not his style," Dexter VOs. "Usually he leaves the killing to someone else." True. True. Rita, bringing Dexter back to the table, asks how Deb and Sean met. Apparently, she brought her car into his shop, blah blah blah. Deb and Sean make out inappropriately, which inspires Rita to cup Dexter's thigh pretty close to his downtown bonanza, if you catch my drift, and I think you do. The slobbery couple goes to get another round of drinks, and Rita observes, "They can barely keep their hands off each other." Voice-over: "I can kill a man, dismember his body, and be home in time for Letterman. But knowing what to say when my girlfriend is feeling insecure...I'm totally lost." Great little scene right there. Julie Benz is fantastic, because she seems even more diminutive and fragile than she normally does, so you can really sense her discomfort. We also get to see Dexter in caring mode again, which I always find interesting.
