...and then outside, Deb sits with Dexter as an EMT guy explains that the gas attacks the upper respiratory system, so it's possible he could experience nosebleeds and dizziness, especially if he exerts himself physically, so he needs to go to the ER. When the EMT's gone, Deb makes Dexter promise that he'll heed the guy's advice, and you'd think in this case he might actually do that so he doesn't, like, pass out while holding Harrison or something, but Deb takes him at his word, and then asks him how he knew about Beth. Dexter tells her it was just luck, he guesses, although given that he said he was going to tell Deb about anything he found, I'm not sure why he's being secretive here. I suppose that is his default setting, though. Deb, however, gives a heartfelt speech about how he saved a lot of people's lives, including hers, and Dexter, for his part, sounds very sincere in replying that he'd never let anything happen to her. Aw. They hug, and we get a slow-motion, lengthy shot of Deb resting her shoulder on Dexter's, NOT THAT THAT IS SUPPOSED TO SIGNAL ANYTHING.
All right, Dexter is in fact worried about Harrison, so much so that he's sending him away with Jamie, to a room at an out-of-town Ritz, no less. Can I go too? I don't mind recapping kid activities as long as I can to it with a daiquiri by the pool. Jamie reminds Dexter that they have to pick an animal for Harrison to be in some sort of Noah's Ark kids' pageant at the school, and Dexter looks at a painted lion on something of Harrison's, prompting DVO to opine, "King of the Beasts. Something feels right about that." Okay, I'll give him that one. After Jamie leaves, Dexter answers another question by explaining to Harry that he's breaking off from Santa Fe Metro again because Homeland Security will hamstring them, adding that he's worried for Deb's safety too, what with Colin Hanks surely knowing she's his sister. Dexter looks up the next and final tableau, which is the Lake of Fire, into which Satan supposedly fell after amassing an army on Earth for war against God and killing his two Witnesses. As Dexter regards the image of Satan, he sees blood drip onto it -- his nose is bleeding from the gas, and he's a little dizzy as well. Harry suggests he go to the ER, but Dexter says he doesn't have time -- he needs to get Colin Hanks to come to him. Well, it's still worrisome that he might become incapacitated at a critical moment, but I suppose the chances of that are too slim even to discuss? Also, since he's not going to set up the tableau until the next night, what's stopping him from going to the ER now?
