At the station, Dexter finds Matthews and says, "Captain, you called for me?" "Oh, hey, Dexter. Yeah, I received a phone call from a woman who says she's a friend of yours." "Who?" "She wouldn't give her name. She claims to have vital information on the Bay Harbor Butcher. Any idea who she might be?" "English accent?" "That's her." "I think she might have a personal issue with me. Um, this is the same woman who tried to railroad Batista; you might want to avoid her." "Not a chance," says Matthews. "This case is closing and I can't afford any loose ends." "Did she say she was coming in?" asks Dex. "Within the hour," replies Matthews. "And you said she mentioned my name?" "Specifically. Stick around, we'll sort this thing out together, okay?" Matthews pats Dex on the shoulder with a smile, and walks away. Man, what's Lila up to? Dexter's curious, too: "If Lila plans to turn me in, why would she drop my name to the Captain and give me a chance to intercept her? It doesn't make sense...unless she wants me here so she can hurt me some other way." "Rita," Dexter says aloud, a look of terror smacking him in the face. He runs to the elevators.
Dexter finds the door at Rita's unlocked, and barges right in to find the babysitter passed out on the couch. He runs to her after calling out for the kids and getting no response. "Lexi!" Oh, that's her name. "Lexi!" She wakes up groggily as Dexter asks where the kids are. "I can't remember," she says, looking terrified. Rita walks in, just home from work, and asks what's going on. "Dexter? I got your message. What is it? What's going on?" "The kids are missing," he says bluntly, and Lexi immediately starts apologizing for falling asleep. Rita says she has to call the cops, and Dex tells her to call Deb, because she'll get the whole force looking for the kids. "I promise we'll find them," he says, leaving the house.
"We're going to Terminal Seven, Miami International," Deb tells the cab driver who's helping her with her bags. Her phone rings, and she answers, "Morgan." "Debra, it's Rita." "Hey, I'm just getting in a cab." "Look, Cody and Astor are missing," Rita says frantically, just barely keeping it together. "Did you call the police?" "Dexter said to call you." "Okay," says Deb. "Um, you just sit by the phone, I'll take it from here." Deb hangs up and tells the cab driver to wait up a second. "You don't want to go to the airport?" "Of course I want to go to the airport," she says, and the guy continues putting her bags in the back. "I just said to wait!" she says, and the frustrated guy tells her to make up her mind. "Why? Why do I have to make up my mind?" she says, her voice getting shaky. "Goddammit, here," she says, handing the guy a bill and grabbing her bags out of the back. Oh, poor Deb.
