She pauses again, and smiles for real this time as she says she's been thinking about Myrtle Beach a lot, how they ran up and down the shore and how she always chased him but couldn't catch him. Dexter laughs genuinely as he recalls that she wouldn't take off her flippers, but Deb thinks that even if she had, "You were always just out of reach." Dexter offers that maybe they're learning it's better that way, and Deb nods; as if to prove that point to the viewer, she goes on to ask about the blood report from the dig. When Dexter says he got it back, she asks if there's anything she should know. Dexter, after a pause: "Nope." He burns the photograph as DVO tells us that as kids, he and Deb would try to outrun the waves, but he would always dive under them. "I'd swim deep, because I could withstand the pull of the tide." As the flames consume his image, DVO goes on, "But Deb was always safest at shore. From here on out, I'll face the depths by myself." And while certain threats may lie dormant for the moment, this Hannah situation is only going to get more complicated. Will she be an ally, an enemy, or both?
