Back in court, where our sure-to-soon-be-hacked-up-by-Dexter drunk driver, Matt Chambers, has taken the stand. As Dexter predicted, he's doing his whole "crocodile tears" act now, saying, "Sure, I've had problems with alcohol in the past, but you heard from my AA sponsor, I've been sober for over a year now, so... Look, I'm not disputing that it was my car that hit Mr. Price, but I reported it stolen hours before the accident." At this point, he buries his face in his hands, and fakes crying. Dexter, of course, sees right through this bullshit. "Men like Matt Chambers know how to pull on the invisible mask of sympathy, even empathy, and right-thinking people don't stand a chance."
Out in the hall, Dexter gets his shoes shined and waits. Matt Chambers walks by with his attorney. "Not guilty. Matt Chambers may have found a way to beat the system...but so have I." Yeah, you have! Go get 'im, Blue!
Back at the precinct house, Norberto is in an interrogation room with a bunch of angry-looking cops peering through the narrow window. Doakes and LaGuerta are playing him Kara Simmons's last call. When the tape is done, Doakes tells Cervantes that he thinks he's complicit. There's a lot of tough-guy back-and-forth, and Cervantes says that he heard that she had been "fucking around on the side." Then he postulates that maybe Ricky heard about it and tried to kill her and then himself. Doakes socks him in right in the kisser for that remark, and it's a pretty realistic and punchy-looking punch, well played by both actors. Doakes: "You think it's a coincidence your ass is in here? We have you on the causeway when Ricky was murdered." "Bullshit." LaGuerta steps in: "We don't deal in bullshit." She rips off a bandage on his arm that reveals a chunk of missing flesh exactly the same size as the one Dex found in Ricky's mouth. "We deal in good police work," LaGuerta continues, "and good science," as she holds up a canister with the missing chunk. Take that, hijo de puta!
Over at the Simmons's house, Dexter and Angel are doing another walkthrough of what happened when and where. When they get to the end, Dexter notices a single drop of blood on the kitchen floor, and observes, "She never got this far." Well, looky what we have here! DNA evidence! Exclamation point! Angel lifts the (crappy) tile up off the floor with his knife, and whisks it away to...
