Dexter is looking online for stuff about helping children deal with grief. He doesn't find anything that speaks to the particular circumstances of his kids. Thank God. I'd hate to run across that website. Curiosity gets the best of him and he starts researching Boyd again. He has a police record. Assault with a deadly weapon. He has no mortgage, so Dexter digs and finds that Boyd inherited his house from his parents.
Here's Deb. He tells her that Astor is still angry. They're going to a grief counselor the next day. Deb says it's going to be hard to replace a mother as good as Rita was. Cody is asleep in the bed with Astor, which means that Deb gets the cot. Instead, she goes to Quinn's place. He tries to kiss her and she says that she came there to sleep, not have his fat sausage fingers all over her. Excellent. She says there's no room for her at her own place, unless she wants to curl up in a toaster oven. Being a good sister to Dexter is exhausting for her. Quinn asks how Dexter is. She says that he's good and that the FBI is now looking for Kyle Butler. Quinn gets a big hmmm look on his face.
The next morning, Dexter is making pancakes and Cody wants them in triangle shapes. Astor reluctantly joins in the fun and it looks like things are starting to warm up. Then, she accidentally sets four places and it makes her angry. Dexter says that he's doing the best he can. Cody gets upset and says that he hates it when they fight.
At his place, Quinn asks Deb what's going on. She says that nothing ever happened between them. Seriously. Then, she leaves. Real mature. At the station, Masuka is doing some lab recreations of the head lady murder. He's having a hard time. He keeps slipping and falling in the fake blood. Deb tells him try the machete. It's a match!
Batista asks Deb the spouses and bank accounts question. Deb says that he doesn't own Laguerta and it's her money, end of story. Interesting. At another crime scene, there's a guy who shot his head. It's gross. Deb sees the lady cop and tells her that she was right about the machete. They find a photo and the lady in the photograph is the head lady from earlier. Quinn reckons it's a murder/suicide, but Deb brings up that there was Santa Muerte stuff from earlier, but not now. Brain matter from the ceiling falls on Masuka and it's disgusting.
