In Dexter's office, DVO recalls that Colin Hanks told him he'd be standing atop "a shining pillar of light," and Dexter does some online research and quickly guesses he's going to be at a particular solar-powered building. Deb then comes in and after being gross for a bit tells him he needs to do a final forensics sweep on the DDK church so they can clear it, and Dexter tells her he'll do it after Harrison's pageant. Deb's then awkward and gulpy again and asks if they need to talk since he did just almost die, but he tells her he's okay, and calls her "Sis," like THANKS FOR THAT.
Batista tells Quinn he's putting in for a transfer for him, since Quinn's too much of a liability. Quinn's contrite and mature about the whole thing, of course. (Just wanted to see if you were still reading.)
Deb is showing LaGuerta the sketchbook and explaining her theory. When she gets to the part about the cops on the roofs, LaGuerta reflexively balks as she does a mental calculation of the manpower involved, but then signs off on the idea. Deb thinks LaGuerta is just setting her up to fail so she can fire her, but LaGuerta tells her that everything she does, she does for the good of the department, and of all the boring things on this show, LaGuerta ping-ponging between being a stone cold bitch and being not quite a stone cold bitch has to be in the top three.
Colin Hanks turns up to Dexter's and uses his key, picking up a package outside while he's at it, which we know contains the Ice Truck Killer hand. He checks the place out -- God, Dexter, that is one tacky-ass bedspread -- and picks out a denim shirt of Dexter's, although if he's going to change clothes you'd think he'd take the opportunity for a shower too. Then we see him eating cereal, in what I feel compelled to remind you again is the SEASON FINALE, and THEN he takes his knife and slices open the box and takes a look at the hand, but then he hears Jamie's voice coming from the adjoining apartment, so he hides in the bedroom. She doesn't notice anything suspicious, although the fact that Colin Hanks's knife is too big to fit in the butcher block is curious if you think about it, and then we see interminable shots of Colin Hanks walking down the hall and checking out the other apartment before finally intoning, "So the Beast has a son." He sees a flyer for the pageant...
