...and then Lumen walks into that same coffeehouse and finds Dexter waiting for her, like, I don't see how he could have gotten a hold of her so did he just guess that she'd come back here even though she has her target now? Whatever, as I told you I love this show, I'm used to things not adding up if you give them three seconds of thought, but this episode really feels like it's not even trying. Anyway, there is an absolutely useless exchange where he tells her he knows what she's doing and she gets offended that he must be spying on her now, like, YOU ASKED HIM TO HELP YOU KILL THEM. It's a little late to be all "Well, I never!" about it now. Anyway, Lumen does concede that Dexter saved her life and she's grateful for that, and honestly, given how much more lucid she is now, THAT'S the cue for Dexter to walk away. I mean, she's acknowledging that she owes him a debt; the implication seems clear that she won't turn him in. However, when she adds that she needs him just to leave her alone now and makes to take off, he grabs her wrist, which would be inadvisable even if she weren't someone who had to SLEEP IN A CLOSET to feel safe. I'm surprised she doesn't stab him with her breakfast fork. Instead, she yells for him not to touch her, getting the attention of the entire restaurant which is just exactly what he needs right now, and Dexter sighs at how difficult his foray into humanitarianism has become, but soldiers on by telling her that "these men put five women in barrels" (consider my issues with him jumping to that conclusion logged) and that they're not going to want to be found. Lumen, however, once again leaves without looking convinced, and DVO at least gets it this time: "She's not going to stop until she finds Brunner." Well, among other people, but you're coming around, DVO.
