Dexter comes upon Deb's desk and relays Lundy's call from last night. "Fucking great," Deb sighs, freaking out like the old Deb we knew and were frustrated by. It's really sad to see her regress here, guys. Dexter, of course, has no idea what she's on about and doesn't want to know. He backs away slowly while Deb chews her fingernails and looks at a framed photo of her and Anton.
Dexter drives down the highway and notices Zoe's cop car following him. All according to his beehivey plan. He pulls into a gas station as his VO smugly notes that Kruger's out of her jurisdiction. He heads to the restroom, counting on her following him; she obliges. She tells him she knows he requested the Rey file and to leave her alone. Dex feigns innocence for about thirty seconds before adopting his "I'ma kill you now" voice. Is she going to kill him like she killed her family? Zoe's taken aback by how certain Dexter seems to be, so he tells her why: the glove fragment in the disposal. He's got a meeting tomorrow morning with his superiors to blow her in. Zoe's next rejoinder -- "There's no chain of custody" -- kinds of gives her guilt away, in case we had doubts. Dexter says even if the glove doesn't get her it'll raise questions, and she's bound to have left other evidence. Backed into a metaphorical corner, Zoe decides to go aggressive and back Dexter against a literal sink. And put an even more literal gun against his head. Then her voice goes all breathy/pouty/creepy as she says, "You tried to rape me." By the by, it's gonna waste time if I have to stop every time I want to note that Dexter and Zoe's dialogue feels creepily sex-charged, on both sides, so just assume that from here on out. Anyway, so Zoe's plan is to shoot Dexter now and claim he was stalking her and tried to rape her. But Dexter, smart little lab geek that he is, keeps on telling her how each way she positions the gun will belie her story upon blood analysis. Zoe finally just whispers in Dex's ear that no one will believe his story over hers anyway -- "so please, tell them everything" -- and leaves. Dexter's voice-over oh-so-helpfully tells us, "You won't give me the chance. I'm counting on it."I guess just in case the Californication audience dropped by and needed some hand-holding.
