Bill tells Dexter that they need to think about the obituary and how they are going to describe Rita. Jesus, y'all, Rita's dead. I'm still not handling it. I should be more like Dexter, minus the stabbing. Suddenly, Dexter asks to be excused. I may be risking getting annoying early in the season, but Jennifer Carpenter is pretty expert already in this scene. She's displaying the signs of someone who hasn't done this sort of thing, an aunt taking care of a baby when she doesn't really know how, and a sister who thinks her usually rock solid brother is falling apart. Probs not our Emmy moment, but it's worth notice. So, Dexter leaves and Deb takes care of the rest. Girl knows something is up.
Dexter is walking around the home and watching another funeral. He sees a weeping bride and reckons that is what Rita would have wanted. It's our first taste of the dreamy music. I'm starting to have trouble figuring Dexter out. He's clearly troubled by what he's not. And, he's so smart. Shouldn't he be able to merge the two ideas? Just saying.
FLASHBACK. Dexter is thinking back to when he first met Rita. He gives her small talk but is clearly looking over her shoulder. So, Dexter chose his location so he could kill someone. He's very polite though. Deb introduced them. He makes a joke about Deb describing him as an ax murderer, which seems bold for a first move on Dexter's part. They start ordering and Dexter zones out on the dude he's gonna kill. Back to the other funeral.
Deb catches up with him and asks him what he's doing. He's thinking about Deb. And, without saying it, now he lied to her. She tells him the details of the funeral. There will be white roses. She tells him that he needs to pick out a dress, but he doesn't know which one to pick. She tells him that he's worrying her. Jesus, Jennifer Carpenter, whoop, whoop!
We see Quinn sitting on Dexter's lawn as Deb arrives. She asks him what he's doing there. He's there to help. They walk into the bathroom with all the blood and Deb is freaked that Dexter saw that. He's fine with that, trust us. Then, they start cleaning. Quinn notices that Deb is scrubbing much more furiously than he is.
