At the start of the episode, Dexter was reeling with his new status as a single dad of three kids. AssTor, who does not deserve her real name anymore, whined about how she wanted to move back home, the space was too cramped, and she didn’t have her stuff from school. Boys are easier. AssTor then ditched school, ran back to her old house and took Cody, and told Dexter that she didn’t want to live with him. She said that his coming into their lives made her think that everything was going to be good forever now that they had a dad, but things only got worse. Cody and AssTor ended up leaving to live in Orlando with their grandparents. Dexter told AssTor that both he and her mother love her, and she gave him what had to be the worst hug of all time, but at least she gave him that. Cody was so sweet. He didn’t want to leave Dexter, but Dexter thought it was best that he stick with his sister. As they drove off, Dexter narrated, "Cody and AssTor showed me that I could still care about something." He still has Harrison. But will the baby turn out to be a killer as well? It would certainly be interesting. Quick: Soap opera aging! Wait, no, that would be lame. But that baby is a bad actor. He kept looking at the camera when Dexter took him to the police station...you can’t find decent baby actors these days.
The FBI interviewed Dexter and told him that they didn’t suspect him of Rita’s murder. Arthur Mitchell’s family gave the police sketches of “Kyle Butler,” and Quinn seems to have noticed the obvious: that they look like Dexter. Dexter’s neighbor also stopped by, and Dexter was, understandably, short with him. But we want our charming Dexter back, because that scene was just awkward to watch.
Dexter decided to get some R&R by hunting down his next victim. He was picking out a moving truck when he found a blood stain in the back of it. Dexter determined that the blood belonged to human victims. He looked up the truck’s pervious renters and found that the last guy was someone whose job was to clean up road kill. We hope this guy won’t die soon; he’s so weird it’s funny. He screams affirmations to himself along with self-help tapes at home, and the way he threw a dead raccoon into his truck made us laugh out loud. But we don’t like his chances. Dexter realized this man was a prime candidate for killing, because he murdered innocents and stuffed their bodies into barrels and putting them out in the wilderness in some nasty lake.
As for the secondary characters, Deb slept over at Quinn’s apartment, because her place was full of Dexter and the kids. Quinn tried to pick up their romance, but Deb denied him, pretending their rendezvous had never happened. In the end, Deb gave him another chance, romantically. We knew she would. It’s Deb. She’s consistently after the root. Quinn and Deb worked a homicide case where a woman’s head was cut off and placed ritualistically (and grossly) on display. They also found out that her significant other had been shot. The head was really nasty. We loved seeing Masuka handle all the blood and gore during Dexter’s leave of absence. We’ve always found that little guy to be hilarious. Batista and LaGuerta fought because Batista found out that his wife had $268,000 in retirement savings that she hadn’t told him about, because she thought he used money irresponsibly. Team LaGuerta. She works hard for the money. Later, at a bar, a man insulted LaGuerta behind her back, and Batista fought him to avenge his wife’s honor.
This episode touchingly and efficiently disposed of two characters that weigh Dexter down- AssTor and Cody. We approve. A lot of people will say that they humanize him, but he still has Deb, Harrison, and the memory of Rita and her kids.
Episode grade- B+ But Julia Stiles had better show up next week
