Batista is obviously skeptical when Beth tells him Doomsday_Adam's videos were meant as a joke, but is ready to let it go with a warning until, on his way out, he notices a bunch of books by EJO on the shelf. And he obviously isn't expecting any violence from Beth, but still, wouldn't you turn around just to be sure if you're going to make a statement linking her to a serial killer? Batista gets what he deserves as Colin Hanks appears and knocks him out with -- I'll give him style points for this -- the large wooden cross that was on the wall, and while Beth is freaked out that they've got a cop on their hands, Colin Hanks thinks that this is a sign -- God wants them to stage wormwood at Miami Metro. Well, if this leads to some thinning of the series-regular herd, I'm going to root for Colin Hanks to stick around a little longer.
On the boat, Dexter pulls up the anchor and finds Holly's corpse but no sign of wormwood, and then, out of understandable frustration with yet another stupid, circular conversation with Harry, kicks a garbage bag, spilling its contents -- two chemicals which, when combined, produce poison gas. Dexter realizes that a whole mess of people could die now, and, despite throwing Harry's hand off his shoulder, which always happens when you're having an internal conversation, he concedes defeat, calls 911, and gives the boat's address along with the information that the DDK suspects are hiding out there, and they have poison gas. A pretty lame way to end another awful episode, but in the scenes to come, I think I saw a shot of a painting depicting Dexter as the devil, which was kind of hilarious? I have to find my fun somewhere.
