Holy crap, you guys. Crazy episode, for real. Lundy is closing in on Dexter in a major way. He calls him into his office for a private meeting about a particular case of one of the BHB's victims that got botched because of Dexter's intentionally shitty bloodwork, and Dexter's defense is pretty weak. Lundy follows the lead with Deb and Angel, who discover that a suspicious local who called in the case actually saw the BHB abduct the defendant. He even got the plate number, which they all track back to the station, confirming that it was indeed an inside job. Lundy is also closing in on Deb, who he invites to his house for dinner. He puts the moves on pretty heavily, and it looks like things are going in a good direction for them. LaGuerta meets up with Doakes, who reveals that he doesn't really have much interest in returning to the police force. LaGuerta offers to introduce him to some friends in the private security sector, which would be lucrative for him. However, Doakes blows the meeting off in order to break in to Dexter's place, where he finds his blood slides. Yikes. Things with Lila totally suck. At her place, Dexter notices the multiple points of origin from the fire, making him distrust her. He tries to avoid her by telling her about bowling night, but she makes a point of tagging along. After bowling, Jimenez (the guy who killed Laura Moser) attacks Dexter with a knife and slices his arm. Dexter decides to say "fuck it" to recovery, and goes and kills the guy at some house in the Everglades where he's keeping quite a large load of Colombian marching powder. After doing the deed, he looks through the guy's wallet, where he sees the address of the bowling alley that he told Lila so she could join. I know! That crazy bitch! She totally called Jimenez and told him. Just then, Rita calls Dexter to see if he had used his key to get into the place without her knowing, and Dexter freaks out and tells her call the police. It was totally Lila, because Dexter blew her off, telling her he was working late when he really had some murderin' to do. When he gets back to Miami, he goes over to Lila's place and tells her to stay the fuck away from Rita and himself, unless she wants to unleash the monster within Dexter. She cries, and I laugh, because I hate her and can't wait for her to die. I have no idea how Dexter's going to get out of all this. It seems like things are crashing down around him, and once Doakes brings those slides to Lundy, which you know he will, it's going to get really hectic up in this show. I can't wait!
Previously: Dexter paid a visit to Santos Jimenez, his mother's killer, and beat him senseless, but didn't kill him. Dexter started boinking Lila, much to the dismay of both Rita and Deb. Lila asked Deb for a tit pardon, but was not granted one. Deb confessed her feelings to Lundy, and they shared a smooch. Dex head-butted Doakes, which was awesome. Doakes attacked Dexter at the station, and got suspended, which was also awesome...or was it? Lundy came to the conclusion that the BHB is someone in the department, based on the manifesto Dexter sent. Lila set her apartment on fire in order to bond herself to Dexter, and it totally worked. It also pissed me off majorly.
It's morning at Dexter's place, and Deb is bitching about Masuka for some reason or another. She grabs the sports section out of Dexter's hands, and Lila rolls out of the bedroom. "I used to enjoy quiet mornings," Dex VOs, "but ever since the fire at Lila's loft, she's been crashing here a bit too often." "Is that my shirt?" Deb asks Lila, automatically pissed. "I thought it was Dexter's," says Lila. "It's not," says Deb. Oh, brother, here we go. Lila starts to take the shirt off right there at the fridge, and Deb's all, "No, it's okay, just keep it." "So, now I share the kitchen with a cobra and a mongoose," Dex VOs, and I'm not sure who's who. Lila holds up the coffee pot, which is empty, and says, "Did somebody drink all the coffee again?" Ew! What right do you have to bitch, Lila? Just make some more! "No, I had a cup, and then Dexter had a cup, and it kinda just went like that until the poh was emptay," mocks Deb. "Deb, please," says Dex, not realizing how wrong a tree he's picked to bark up. Deb: "What? It's a stupid question! And, why are you sticking up for her, anyway?" Dexter says that he's just trying to keep the peace, but Deb's already in the next room, having pissily huffed out of the kitchen. "Maybe we should stay at your place tonight," Dexter tells Lila. "Has the fire damage been repaired yet?" Lila says that the insurance company is still "dicking her around," and haven't cut a check yet, but I don't see what that has to do with the damage being fixed. "Don't worry about it, I'll be moving out soon," says Deb. Lila: "And stop leeching off your brother?" Jesus. Deb sarcastically thanks Dex for sticking up for her. Dexter: "Hey, I'm Switzerland." Deb's out of there in a hurry. Dex takes that as a cue to get ready for work himself, and starts packing his bag, where he finds a "Dragon Zombie" action figure that Cody has slipped into his bag. "He's trying to control you," says Lila, making me want to smack her. As if I even need to say that; I always want to smack her. She posits that, Cody's having done that, Dexter has "no choice but to return them to him." Dexter: "He's seven. He seldom has thoughts more complicated than the desire for candy." Lila gives Dexter a Whatever face, and he tells her he'll see her at the loft later.
