At the station, Deb points out to LaGuerta that Jordan's plane was gassed and ready to go when they stopped it on the runway. She tells LG that she thinks Jordan is on the run. She wants to put an APB out on him but LG says that they would need an arrest warrant for that and they don't have enough evidence. Deb is getting anxious about the prospect of Jordan slipping through their fingers, but LG comes up with an idea that would keep Jordan under surveillance for a day while they had a chance to collect evidence. This works! Sisters working together once again.
Deb sits at Quinn's desk and asks him where he was the night before. He says that he had a couple of things "crash down" on him. He tells her that he heard about Jordan disappearing. He asks if she thinks the vigilante was responsible, but she points out that killing Boyd and killing Jordan are two vastly different ventures, effort-wise. Jordan has so much security, he doesn't pee without a bodyguard holding his wiener. Her metaphor, not mine. Quinn says that it's a race to see which "couple" gets him first -- the vigilantes or him and Deb. Assuming they're a couple. Wow, that was a stretch. Deb says that you can't assume anything right now, but people are making asses out of us all over the place in this episode. Deb says she's going to re-watch those horrible DVDs to see if she's missed something.
Dexter is in his car and calls Jordan, who answers. He calmly says that it's nice to hear from Dexter. Dex says that, whatever Jordan is thinking, he shouldn't do anything crazy. Jordan says that Dex sounds stressed. He says that Lumen must mean a lot to him, to which Dexter agrees. Then, he says that Dexter must feel cursed, since he keeps losing the people closest to him. Dexter asks him what he wants (and even volunteers to turn himself over to Jordan in return for Lumen) but he says that he has what he wants. And, he'll need to go now so that Dexter can't trace the phone call. Then, he says, "Tick tick tick, that's the sound of Lumen's life running out," which Dexter takes as evidence that she's not yet dead. Jordan hangs up and removes the battery from his phone. We see poor Lumen in the trunk, bound and gagged and kicking and muffle-screaming. Jordan is stopped at a red light and there's a street vendor who is working the parked crowd, Jordan-style. He recognizes Jordan and starts to walk towards his car. Just as he's about to ask Jordan about the sound of someone struggling to break free from his car trunk, the light turns green and he drives away. He speeds around the corner and opens the trunk and pistol whips Lumen.
