So Angel gets a phone call at the end of the meeting and says they have a lead on Trinity. Gee I wonder... Cut to Deb, Quinn, and Dexter at Beaudry's metal shack. They're chalking Beaudry's absence up to Christine warning him to stay away. While Masuka picks up all the breadcrumbs Dexter left for him, Debra is outside the shack and finds the planted hammer. She takes it inside and gets Dex to confirm the make of the murder weapon, but she's finding this whole bust far too easy. "It's a little hard to believe this is the same guy that never made a mistake in 30 years," she says. "Nah, I'm sure he made mistakes," says Dexter, "we just weren't looking." It's a lie designed to override Deb's bullshit detector, but it's a pretty smooth one.
Later, Angel's giving the whole story of the Beaudry "bust" to the news. Back at his seedy motel, Arthur is watching. He's utterly nonplussed at this turn of events. He gets a call from Christine, who assures him the call won't be traced. He berates her for fucking everything up. Christine cries that she was only protecting him, because she loves him. Arthur goes cold as ice. He refuses to help her and says she's on her own. He says he's sorry. "I'm sorry too," she whimpers, but Arthur wasn't finished: "I'm sorry you were ever born!" At which point a goofy but amiable angel appears to Christine and takes her in a tour through a version of Miami where she was never born. Oh, what an unfamiliar landscape it is! Quinn, for one thing, is banging some Asian waitress. No, no, fine. No angel. Arthur just tells her not to call again, ever, and Christine breaks down into hiccupping sobs.
Back at the Beaudry shack, Deb gets word that Christine wants to speak to Deb. Only Deb. Quinn manages to get her to let him tag along, though. Meanwhile, Dexter gets a call from Arthur, who is back at the carnival, scoping out the abductable boys. He tells Dexter he has the money and tries to arrange an exchange point, but Dexter tells him to meet him at the marina at 8. Planning on a quick and easy burial at sea, hmm? But once Dex is off the phone, DVO lays it out for us: He's gonna intercept Arthur right now, at the carnival, before he can nab another kid.
