LaGuerta and Captain Jack are meeting up at some dive and LaGuerta tells him that the only non-dead-end on the list is Dexter, "who conveniently moved his boat right when we were closing in on his marina during the official Bay Harbor Butcher investigation." Captain Jack thinks there's no way Dexter could be the killer and speculates that if Doakes wasn't the BHB, someone probably framed him and killed him -- most likely the real BHB -- so why not look into Doakes' final days? LaGuerta suggests they check out the cabin in the Everglades and apparently this subplot would have moved along a lot more quickly if LaGuerta could have hooked up with even one person in the Department who's neither an idiot nor actively obstructing her investigation.
The next morning, apparently, Hannah has recovered from her dad's cartoonish abuse, and finds that Dexter has made breakfast for her. She admits Dexter was right about Clint (O RLY) and says she doesn't fall for people's bullshit (I'm saying), but with him, it's hard. Dexter sympathizes that fathers can be complicated and Hannah hopes he's gone for good before managing to laugh that Dexter scared the shit out of him. "I hadn't seen that look on your face since you took me to see the snow." I'm surprised she'd draw that comparison, given where that evening led, but she moves on to ask if the look was indicative of his Dark "Rider," adding that maybe she's starting to see why he'd give it that name. She asks if it just takes over and Dexter nods his assent. Hannah: "Where do you go? Does Dexter Morgan just disappear?" Dexter says he's still there, but possessed by a feeling and then says he should get to work, unless she needs him to stay? Hannah: "I'm good. I got pancakes." Which you are NOT EATING. HELLO!
Moose Jaw Metro (h/t Daniel). Masuka has assembled everyone to let them know that they have footage of the PA getting on the bus, but his face is indistinguishable. However, Masuka identifies a moment wherein the PA grabs a support rail -- bare-handed. Deb dispatches everyone to try to get a print; like, maybe they thought it would be an exercise in futility, but wouldn't it have been standard procedure for this to have happened already? Of course, I'm pretty sure the flames would have dissipated the oil and made the fingerprint unreadable and look here, I don't know which complaint to even focus on. It's just like last season!
