Dexter, however, no stranger to ersatz displays of emotion, watches her with a jaundiced eye, and when Batista goes to take care of some paperwork, Dexter observes Hannah pick up the giraffe with a fond, longing look and realizes that she's nostalgic for those days. Dexter breaks her reverie with "No touching," which makes me hope MCH gets a guest appearance on the new upcoming eps of Arrested Development. Hannah tries to say it was Randall's giraffe, but Dexter thinks it was hers, and after a little back-and-forth about that, Dexter tells Hannah that Batista will let her know where to be for the next day. Hannah asks if Dexter will be there, and rather than discuss Isaak Pullo, LaGuerta, or any of the other million problems he's currently got, he merely replies, "I hope so." I appreciate the brevity, pal.
In, coincidentally, a cheap motel, Deb is apparently in the shower while Dexter is looking over a police database titled "Known Associates of the Koshka Bratva," like, I doubt a government database has a UI this friendly but I'm impressed with the mock-up, at least. Of interest is a piece about the Koshkas clashing with the Colombians over the heroin trade, and I appreciate the show putting up an actual story about it even if the use of apostrophes within leaves something to be desired. Also, DVO, not knowing that Isaak Pullo has gone a bit rogue in pursuing Dexter, thinks that he might bring all the Koshkas down on him if he kills Isaak Pullo, which explains the rather more elaborate plan we'll soon see. Deb complains about the water temperature in the shower before asking, rather neutrally, if Dexter's plan to take care of their problem involves killing anyone, but Dexter tells her no. She might have been better advised to ask if his plan involves death, but since it's going to go off the rails there's no point in bothering.
