Dexter wonders where the two of them intended to go, and Hannah confesses they didn't have much of a plan at first - they were just trying to get out of Alabama. Eventually, they decided they were going to head for Argentina and settle down on a farm. She laughs as she goes on that they were living on farms in Alabama, so she's not sure why they thought it would be so different in South America. Rather than launch into a detailed analysis of farming subsidies and export statistics, Dexter asks Hannah if she misses Randall, and Hannah tells him that she misses the way she felt back then, the feeling that life was just beginning and that anything was possible. Hannah asks if he knows that feeling, and Dexter, very thankfully unimpeded by a DVO, has a nice long moment of ambiguous consideration before he shrugs that no, he doesn't. Hannah, looking like maybe she doesn't buy that, realizes her lawyer is looking for her. She heads off, but not without turning back and favoring Dexter with a smile. Staying with that shot, we see LaGuerta walk into frame, and we follow her into Deb's office, wherein she holds up a police DVD and intones, "We have a big problem." Well obviously you do, LaGuerta, if you're not even using thumb drives to carry your media around!
Oh, it's even worse than that. You see, in the course of subduing Speltzer, the cops were forced to use their clubs; then, when they asked if he understood his Miranda rights, they got no verbal confirmation, although it did appear that Speltzer might have nodded. Speltzer's public defender ran with this, arguing that since at one point, Speltzer was knocked unconscious, it's entirely reasonable to conclude that he did not in fact understand his rights. I mean, liberal here and all, but that seems like a harder sell in the case of someone who's been arrested on numerous prior occasions, no? Deb is devastated, and gets more so when she learns that Speltzer is already free - the judge threw out his confession, and he was subsequently released about two hours earlier, during which time he made it clear that he'll be suing the Department for use of excessive force. On THAT one, I think the police recording isn't going to be his friend. Deb wonders what they can do, but LaGuerta tells her nothing. DVO, on the other hand, thinks there's something he can do, but any planning will have to wait, as Quinn gets a text about Alex having offed himself. Like the strip club hasn't been a sad enough place to work as it is.
