Linden: "As much as Trisha Seward and Ashley Kwon's murders have nothing in common, they also have one thing in common. A serial killer that did them."
Skinner: "Based on..."
Linden: "Based on I found seventeen dead bodies with matching wounds. Based on I got that location from the drawings."
Skinner: "Even though all of this is obvious, I cannot hear you because I want the Seward case to be solved. Not necessarily because he did it, but because he is the worst and because getting back into that case would ruin my marriage and my life. I can't even think straight about the Seward murder, is how much of a bruise it still is for both of us."
Linden: "Pushing on bruises is 99 percent of what I am about."
Skinner: "First of all, Adrian's doctor told us he won't remember that night, which is a good thing because that's how you get Dexter."
Linden: "It's how you get me though, too."
Skinner: "Sure, and I know you're going to talk to the kid anyway, and I'm not going to stop you. I have Regi amounts of compassion for your compulsive behavior, interestingly enough, and I know that you need to make this right for yourself, if nobody else. But we can't give Seward ammo for an appeal. That's what I'm saying to you."
Linden: "I didn't realize you get me. I forgot that part. Thank you for setting my mind at ease, human."
Skinner: "You can always go back to your normal little life."
Linden: "Good one, former lover. That was a funny joke."
He hands her the paperwork to get back into policing, because it's as simple as that, and then just to fuck with us he says, "Simple as that. Welcome back!" I like it when The Killing has a chip on its shoulder.
That blabbering person that is always around Ray Seward, he is blabbering some more while they take their showers. It happens in a cage, like chainlink fence around a showerhead, but since it's this show, it also takes place in almost complete darkness. I don't know that much of the blabbering matters besides giving the scene some color, but they do talk about how Ray's got a tattoo of an "A" on his chest, which relates to Adrian and which the mean guards use to make him feel bad about everything as usual. Oh, and then somebody has slipped him a razor blade in his soap, because of his dubious celebrity I still don't quite understand.
