This episode found Lumen and Dexter still looking for the guys who hurt Lumen. She told Dexter that one of the men had a watch that he would put near her ear, while he uttered, “That’s the sound of your life running out.” The other had nice suits, and she had seen his face because he removed her blindfold. Lumen was still gunning to help Dexter kill the men, but Dexter wanted to play lone ranger, as usual. And hey, we don’t blame him after the Lila and Miguel Prado debacles. But we understood her plight. In a weird way, it’s healthy. She’s just trying to get her personal power back. We never thought Lumen was a pain, because we like Julia Stiles. Also, she’s a good project for Dexter to help him get past Rita.
The Suit Man attempted to move the girls bodies in the barrels, but the truck was involved in a car accident and the barrels spilled out onto the street. The news and police were all over the scene shortly after that. Fortunately, it helped Dexter and Lumen locate the Suit Man. Dexter threw the police off his scent by stashing Boyd’s wallet in the vehicle. Suit Man turned out to be the self-help author Jordan Chase. Watch Man is probably his security guard, Cole. Dexter broke into Cole’s home and found an old photo of him with Boyd and others as teenagers. Apparently, they had known each other for a long time. At that point, someone grabbed Dexter from behind, choking him, and Lumen hit the man with her flashlight, allowing Dexter to escape with her. Dexter finally accepted Lumen as a full partner in this revenge mission.
Dexter clashed with Harrison’s nanny when the nanny put a statue of a saint next to Harrison to protect him. Dexter is an atheist and he thought that was silly, but he caved in the end. Lumen made him realize that you have to be flexible with the important people in your life, accepting all of them, if they are worth it.
Deb is still sleeping with Quinn, who threw out the idea of getting an apartment together. Deb let him know that she didn’t even want people to know they were seeing each other, and you could tell Quinn was kind of hurt. It was clear in this episode that Quinn is really into Deb. We’d feel worse for Quinn if he wasn’t investigating Dexter with a creepazoid. We want to like him, because it’s cute how much he likes Deb, who deserves to be happy, dangit. The investigation doesn’t make the show more intense; it just makes it annoying. Now Quinn is looking into Lumen, because he knows that she is staying with Dexter.
The cops set up a sting to get the Santa Muerta guys at a club that actually looked fun to go to. LaGuerta messed it up and a bunch of people got shot, but Deb managed to nail one of the baddies in the head, saving a hostage. Nice. We love Deb. We just wish she could gain a little weight and then cut herself some bangs like she had in the first season. They hide her tiny forehead. Also, we want LaGuerta dead. It is decided. She is added to our mental list of characters who need to go and are bogging down a good show.
This one was eventful, funny, and full of good moments. Our favorite? When Lumen saw a picture of Masuka and nailed his personality.
