...so I'm glad that when we cut to Hannah handing him the coffee with a warning that it's hot, DVO is ready: "And potentially deadly." With that in mind, he puts it down and says he really needs to get to work, whereupon Hannah steps in front of him and says she can't figure out what he wants, but he obviously keeps making excuses to see her. It's kind of funny that this parallels his confusion about what she wants; most non-serial-killers would probably assume that he likes her, but these two are wired differently. She challenges him to just spit out the reason he's there, and without pause, he tells her he wants to take her out. Hannah: "On a date?" Dexter, after a moment of confusion: "That'll work." HA! I love it when this show gets its own humor right.
Hannah looks genuinely touched, but tells Dexter she doesn't date, as she gets too easily attached. Dexter notes that she doesn't seem the type, but she admits she's not who people think she is - on the inside, she's still that fifteen-year-old girl who ran away with Randall. It is not like this season is perfect, but this is the most effort they've put into actually developing a character since Trinity; since I was so hard on last season it only seems fair to appreciate the good work here. She says the difference is that now she knows better - Randall promised her was going to take her to Disney World and "Santa's Holiday Adventure" - "some Christmas-themed shithole just outside of Miami." As we all know, Disney's very litigious, so it's probably best for the show that Hannah doesn't give a pithy description of it. She asks if Dexter knows it, and when he says no, she fondly and shyly tells him it's the only place in Florida where you can see snow, and she was obsessed with the idea at that age.
