Miguel pulls up a sports website and starts playing a video. Dexter recognizes that it's a football game and Miguel compliments him for knowing his sports. He stops the video and the stats for a player, Billy Fleeter, cover the action on the field. OK, if that's a functionality of that website -- where you can click on a player on the field and their stats show up? That's amazing. Dexter asks if he should know who Billy Fleeter is. He shouldn't, "but hopefully you will," replies Miguel. I think I know where this is going. The video is from five years ago, when Billy was in college. He never went pro because he developed problems with drugs and gambling. Does that stop you from being a pro football player? Anyway, he was deep in the hole with his gambling and had to pay off some of his debts by being an enforcer. We're not talking broken fingers here -- he bashed skulls with a baseball bat. Miguel tried to prosecute him a few years earlier, but they couldn't get the proper evidence. Miguel had to tell the children of a 70-year old man killed by Fleeter that there was nothing he could do. Dexter VO's, "Miguel wants me to kill him." Miguel says, "I don't want you to kill him." Heh. No, Miguel wants to do it himself.
This could be sticky. Well, they're killing people; of course it's sticky. It could be complicated. It wouldn't be the carefree killing that Dexter loves so much. Miguel explains that he has let Dexter do all of the heavy lifting so far -- he's ready to get his hands dirty. Dexter grows (relatively) cold. He closes his laptop. As he walks to his kitchen, he VO's that it's one thing to let Miguel provide some back-up, it's another to let him take the reigns. Miguel says that he will need Dexter's help. Dexter says it's not a good idea and Miguel, smirking and pointing at his own head with two fingers, says, "Think about it." I love it when Smits does that shit. It's so baroque and interesting. Harry's ghost pipes in and tells Dexter that he shouldn't think about letting Miguel kill Billy Fleeter. I wonder if Miguel notices the lighting change.
