Dexter turns around and sees Miguel in the hall. They have eye contact and Miguel points upward, then heads for a stairwell. Dexter goes to the roof where Miguel is waiting for him. He's pacing and he looks pissed. He throws his jacket on the ground and untucks his shirt. He's wearing the Freebo shirt. He asks Dexter if he thinks this is funny. "Not at all. They said that stain would come out." That was Hall's funniest delivery all season. He's having fun taunting Miguel right now. Miguel says that he didn't get to where he is by letting some gusano call the shots. That's a maggot. He wants to know where his ring is. Dexter corrects him -- it's not his ring, however, he did leave a very clear fingerprint on it. Miguel says that there is plenty of blood on Dexter's hands too -- he says this while waving his hands, in case we weren't positive that he is riled up right now. You know, Smits has really danced on the precipice of hammy acting during his tenure on Dexter and while sometimes I get a little embarrassed watching it, it has also been, for the most part, hugely enjoyable. I never knew this guy was this expressive. He reminds Dexter that he killed Ethan Turner and Clemson Galt. Dexter says there is nothing to tie him to those murders. That might change in a court of law if Rita had to answer questions about Dexter's whereabouts. Dexter says that Rita knows all she needs to know -- and it will stay that way or Ellen's ring will show up in the hands of the authorities.
Miguel says that he is the last person Dexter wants to fuck with, because he will FUCK HIM BACK! IN WAYS THAT DEXTER NEVER IMAGINED. If there's anything I have faith in, it's Dexter's ability to imagine the unimaginable ways to get fucked (figuratively speaking), so Miguel really just doesn't know him at all. Miguel essentially says that he can fix the courts to get Dexter in trouble. "You got the ring. I got City Fucking Hall!" He's so good right now. Hall is so great right now too -- his look changes as Miguel continues. Then, he says that Miguel can't be reasoned with, guilted, or controlled. This quest for leverage of his has been futile. Miguel agrees -- he will do what he wants, when he wants, to whomever he wants. And Dexter can count on it! Very quietly, Dexter smirks and says he will count on it. He does his best Valerie Cherish bow and walks away. He VO's "Thank you." Miguel has given him what he needs to be able to off him, I believe.
