In the morning, Dexter tries knocking on Hannah's door and is puzzled by the lack of an answer, given that he's apparently been watching her for days and she hasn't varied her schedule. He heads out back and finds her digging a hole for a dead rabbit in her hand, and is like, "Heyyyyy, interesting!" She explains that since rabbits kill her plants, she sometimes takes it upon herself to poison them, which is the only way to get rid of them permanently. Dexter tells her to remind him not to show up uninvited, then, and boy, he must not have had any coffee for days if he doesn't see this response coming: "Too late." Hannah, fairly mildly, notes that Dexter's accused her of murder and animal cruelty; is there anything else he'd like to add? Dexter, feigning sheepish conciliation, apologizes and says he was wrong, handing over a copy of his report and saying it showed the blood evidence was inconclusive. Obviously, it seems unlikely that that could be the case, given how Dexter nailed her participation down to the scar on her hand, but he could be counting on her to realize this as part of his plan. With an inscrutable smile, she tells him it takes a real gentleman to admit when he's wrong, and some subtextual talk about dirt then forces DVO to tell himself to snap out of staring at her, like, dude, I know you're weird but I thought you were pretty clearly het? This is Yvonne Strahovski we're talking about; I'm a Kinsey 6 and I'm not exactly not interested.
Dexter tells her that while he's there, he could use a plant for his place, and she's amusedly disbelieving but leads the way to the nursery, wherein she asks him about his place so as to get a better idea of what would be appropriate. Dexter manages to steer the topic to her husband, but he doesn't get any more information than his apparent cause of death before Hannah cuts off the topic. In an effort to bring it back around, he tells her that his wife was murdered, and Hannah at least sounds sincere in saying that that's awful. Still, though, she'd rather get off the doom-and-gloom subjects, so Dexter tries another tack, asking how long she's had the place. Hannah tells him it's been about a year, and mentions that she worked for the previous owner before that, a "Beverly Grey," who passed away about a year ago. Dexter quickly notes that her mentor died as well as her husband; having gotten more to go on, he tells her he has to get to work, but she points out he still hasn't picked a plant, so he picks one out and asks what he owes her. After a pause, she gives credence to the idea that she understands what he did for her when she tells him it's on her, and he thanks her and takes off.
