That night, Dexter seeks out Stan Beaudry's house. Or, rather, his shack. Stan's not home, but Dex finds his CB radio (turned on, for whatever reason) and a photo of him next to his rig. You guys, remember when Jackie on Roseanne became a trucker? That and that one Simpsons episode are my only reference points for truckers. Anyway. Dexter gleans that ol' Stan is due back tomorrow. Of course, Dex would be able to head him off at Jacksonville tonight if he didn't have to make an appearance with that albatross of a family of his. Harry's words. Harry's paraphrased words.
Back home, Rita has stayed up so they can big-T Talk. Dexter is so not interested, both because he's mad but probably more because he's tired. He relents, though, because Rita says it can't wait. She says she didn't sleep with Elliott, and it was a HUGE mistake, and she's SO sorry. Dexter's like, "Okay, apology accepted." This, of course, sounds completely crazy to Rita, and I can't quite blame her there. She quite naturally feels like he's bottling up his feelings of hurt and betrayal and anger. But Dexter's just over it. He assures her everything's okay.
After attempting to reach Christine several more times, Arthur finally just heads over to her apartment, where he finds yellow police tape across her door. Troubling.
The next morning, Dexter breaks into Arthur's house and gets to DNA-gathering (combs, razors, nothing grody). Angel phones and says they need him in at work, ASAP. Harry pesters that Dex is "juggling too many people." And he doesn't mean Trinity, Beaudry, Rita, et cetera. He means the personas Dexter has to put on. See, this is what you're missing when I gloss over Harry and DVO's pointlessness. I.e., nothing.
Miami Metro. Debra convinces Angel to give her one crack at interrogating Christine before her lawyer shows up. Not sure what good that'll do but hey! Go for it. Deb plays good cop, bringing Christine food (she's too paranoid to eat it, but whatevs) and attempting to find common ground on the topic of fathers. Deb talks about Harry; how she wanted them to have been close, but he was more interested in Dexter. Christine can tell this is at least 30% bullshit designed to build trust. So Deb tries another tack, talking about realizing one day that her dad wasn't the end-all, be-all. Christine still manages to see this for the tactic it is and stonewalls. Deb leaves the room, and Angel says Christine's lawyer is demanding her release. They decide to let her go and see if they can follow her to Trinity.
