...and when he returns to the scene, Deb asks where the fuck he's been. Dexter tells her he was running an errand, like, might want to come up with a slightly more specific cover story, especially since when Dexter assures her he didn't kill anyone, Deb asks, "Well how the fuck do I know that?" As they get into earshot of Randall, she berates him a little more before telling him to finish what he needs to do (has he started?) and then they'll go visit Harrison. Okay, arrangements were made for him, but what are they, and more importantly, how are they explaining the separation? Anyway, once she's gone, Randall, who's just been served an ice-cream cone from a marshal like HOW CONSIDERATE OF HIM, wonders what's up Deb's ass, and Dexter confesses that she's both his sister and his boss. He then asks Randall what he meant earlier about surrender, and Randall tells him he just accepted his situation, which dissipated his anger. Having heard what he needs to, I guess, Dexter goes off to do some "work."
Back at the strip club, the cops are there yet again, but Jason Gedrick is unmoved, even when Batista threatens to bring a portable polygraph next time and test every single person there. When they're gone, though, Jason Gedrick heads into his office -- to find Isaak Pullo seated, unassumingly waiting for him. Jason Gedrick subtly blanches when he sees him, but Isaak Pullo doesn't seem to notice, explaining that he seems to be there for the same reason as the police -- to find Viktor. In response to the unasked question, Jason Gedrick says he has no idea how the police got Viktor's name, and while it's true that he didn't give it up, I'm not sure that "no idea" is quite accurate. A henchman joins them as Gedrick adds that he thought Viktor was in Kiev, and Isaak Pullo displays the first hint of temper as he asks why he'd be there if that were the case. Isaak Pullo then stands and starts gregariously invading Gedrick's personal space as he confesses that Viktor's caused them some problems. "Shooting a policeman's never good for business." But, he goes on, he can't help but wonder if someone in the Brotherhood decided to make an example of him. Gedrick, however, says that would never happen without Isaak Pullo's approval, and goes on that while Viktor was "impulsive" (I guess that's the go-to euphemism for guys who murder strippers on a whim), he was one of "us," and they'd always protect him. Judging that Gedrick's evident discomfort is being caused merely by justifiable fear of Isaak Pullo rather than untruths about the Viktor business, Isaak Pullo puts a hand on Gedrick's face, leans in -- and says he believes him. If you'd said that a little earlier, Isaak, it'd smell better in there. Isaak removes his jacket, and tells Gedrick they have a lot to discuss after sending the henchman for something or other. If it's vodka, I think Jason Gedrick would be grateful for some too.
