Deb's at her desk, watching her phone ring and refusing to answer. Angel comes by and, not unkindly, asks for the Vacation Murders file back. Deb's apparently been poring over it, looking for some hole in Nikki's testimony. Nothing so far. Angel tells her she shouldn't even be here -- she's on sick leave. Of course, that'd be worse for Deb than getting shot again, so you can see why she lingers. She checks her messages and finds she has a returned call from a "Valerie Hodges," who has some information on Harry Morgan. And whether it's the prospect of actually finding out something about Harry she doesn't want to know, or Angel telling her to quit working already, Deb gets spooked and hangs up. Honestly, Operation Harry's Tarnished Halo is really not what Deb needs right now.
Back home, Dexter makes a concerted effort to share something honest with Rita. To really communicate with her. Only he can't settle on an appropriate topic that wouldn't scare her off or reveal too much of himself, and by the time he mentally settles on the subject of food, Rita's out of the room with a terse (yet ironic), "We're out of bread."
At church Dexter stares at the Family Trinity not at all conspicuously, and voices over his clear jealousy that he's been able to keep killing and keep a family all these years. Particularly when Dexter observes that Trinity's not faking it. He really is a caring husband and father. How does he do it? Dexter needs to find out.
Oddly, though Dexter certainly was ambling in his direction, it's Trinity who introduced himself first, as "Arthur Mitchell." "Kyle Butler," lies Dexter. Arthur hands Dex a flyer for "Four Walls, One Heart," a Habitat for Humanity knockoff that builds homes for the needy. When asked what brought him to the church, Dexter lies (though not by much) that his wife kicked him out and kept the kids. Arthur tells him he came to the right place.
At the Quinn flophouse, Christine works on her laptop, wearing the usual serious journalist's uniform of bra, panties, and a completely unbuttoned men's dress shirt. Quinn's fully dressed, which makes this scene both unfair and kind of like he's at a strip club. She asks him for scoop on the Vacation Murders case and then immediately tries to say she's not asking for scoop on the case. This is another character who's not being written with any intention other than for us to hate her. And, you know, I'll oblige, but I won't feel great about it. Anyway, what Christine really wants is an interview with Debra. She'll make sure it's a hero piece, et cetera, but Quinn manages to be resolute in the face of hot sex right in front of him, so I guess we need to give him some credit. He even pushes Christine off of him when Debra phones from out on the sidewalk. Sorry, ace reporter Porky O'Sexweapon!
