Cup of tea in hand, Vogel answers the door for Dexter. She offers him his own cup, and when he accepts, she goes to make it, putting down her own in the process… whereupon Dexter pulls out a small bottle of liquid and drops a bit in. Rude, Dexter. Vogel nervously reiterates the plan: she'll meet Daniel and lead him out of the diner, where Dexter will sedate him and they'll take him to a facility. Dexter nods uncomfortably as he ponders how wide a definition of "facility" is acceptable here.
Then the two of them sit and get to some tea-drinking as Vogel happily babbles about her "little boy" and how she's going to get to see him. Dexter's like, "It's good I'm dating an experienced poisoner because I'm only going to have to listen to about five more seconds of this." Sure enough, Vogel presently keels over onto a soft surface, and Dexter arranges her into a comfortable-looking position as DVO intones that Vogel now will never have to face what her son has become. Well, I can't really see that, unless he's referring to the fact that he's soon to become fish food.
OMG, this scene. Dexter is standing, in broad daylight about twenty feet from the diner entrance and hiding behind a tree with about as much subtlety as you'd find in one of your less sophisticated Looney Tunes offerings. Oliver enters and takes a seat at the counter. After he's ordered some coffee, he flips through the mini-jukebox beside him and finds the song he wants.
You guys, all the other cards are actual jukebox ones, with the thick font and the record label listed. But the props department obviously couldn't find one for "Make Your Own Kind Of Music" so they typed one up themselves and it looks so anemic and out of place. Couldn't they have made the few other cards we saw in the same font? I mean, it seems like a weird thing to complain about, but unlike on most entertainment offerings people actually are getting paid well on this show. If you're interested (obsessive?), though, the companion song on the fake card is "East of Ginger Trees" by Seals and Crofts.
Oliver plays homage to Mama Cass yet again as Dexter watches, and in one shot over Oliver's shoulder you can see Dexter -- who I must point out again Oliver KNOWS BY SIGHT-- standing outside as plain as day. If this isn't the worst stakeout he's ever perpetrated it's got to be in the bottom five. It's really great that he's losing his urge to kill given how terrible he's become at it. After over an hour (and several replays of the song) has passed, Oliver gets up to go. Dexter STILL DOESN'T ATTEMPT TO CONCEAL HIMSELF, and on top of that could he have chosen a more eye-drawing color than turquoise? Oliver exits the place and there are people EVERYWHERE as Dexter follows him to the parking lot. Like, how he thought this could work out I cannot imagine, and then he watches Oliver get into his vehicle…and drive away. Great plan, Einstein!
