He also informs the group that the pageantry of the last killing suggests references to Revelations 8 through 10, and when Deb asks why he changed up his M.O., i.e., why he left them to trigger her death rather than killing her himself, like, NICE TO MENTION HOW YOUR POLICE WORK KILLED THE POOR GIRL, and Anderson theorizes that, consistent with another Revelations passage, the killer is more concerned with getting his message out that with any thrill an individual kill might give him. Batista pipes up that they found evidence that the victim had sex with someone using a spermicidal condom, and DVO wonders if it was Colin Hanks. Batista also says he's been trying to contact EJO's last-known TA, "Carissa Porter," but so far the university has been rather unhelpful in making that connection happen, so Deb suggests they pay a visit to the university in an effort to, say, foster the spirit of cooperation. Masuka then pipes up that the locusts and fish turned up nothing of interest, but they did find another number lodged in Erin's esophagus. Er, given that she was alive when they found her, how exactly did that work? Did Colin Hanks have it stuck to the end of his dick? Anyway, the new number, written on the same type of paper and ink as the others, is 1244. Some new guy then pipes up that he did a check into the usage of numbers in the Book of Revelations, and instead of Deb being all snooty about "Who are you, now?" I'd wonder why she's not asking why NO ONE ELSE CHECKED INTO THE USE OF NUMBERS IN REVELATIONS UP TO THIS POINT. I am, however, very happy to report that the new guy, Lewis Green, is Masuka's replacement for the Horrific Nightmare of an Intern, and after Masuka has told everyone this, Green goes on that while there's plentiful numerology in the Book of Revelations, the only number close to the ones they've gotten from the killer that appears in a noteworthy manner is 1260. This being the day after 1244, Anderson notes that they only have fifteen days until the countdown ends and they reach, according to Deb, "more apocalyptic bullshit." She asks Dexter to please tell her he's got something else for her, but, with an apology from DVO, Dexter lies and says that he does not -- there was nothing of interest on the wings. Deb calls an end to the meeting, and after everyone disbands, Masuka leans in and asks Green if he's as much of a computer whiz as he seems. Green, who I must say is pretty nerd-cute, kind of aw-shuckses that yeah, he knows his way around a hard drive, so Masuka pulls up the Ice Truck Auction and asks Green if he do something to help get rid of his potential trouble/embarrassment. Green, apparently liking the challenge, says he'll look into it, and man, it's nice to have an intern on the show who doesn't make me want to kill him/myself/everyone who's ever existed.
