Update in the Ray Speltzer case. LaGuerta walks in with a disk that shows Speltzer’s arrest. Apparently, they never got a verbal confirmation that he understood his rights while they were beating the shit out of him. Symantics, right. The blood spilling out of his mouth spelled yes on the hood of that car. So with the help of his lawyer the judge threw his confession out of court and Speltzer walked. It must’ve been Wayne Jarvis vs. Barry Zuckercorn. Now Ray’s filing a law suit. More bad news for Miami Metro, Quinn is texted that Alex’s body was found.
At Alex’s, Isaak waits outside complaining how they are all disrespectful for not wearing uniforms. I guess Dave Chappelle is borrowing them.
Isaak is satisfied when he sees Dexter and they drive off.
Inside, Dexter confirms the suicide but Angel thinks it’s too coincidental. The gun matches the one used on Mike, the suicide note is there. If it looks like a setup, smells like a setup, it’s probably a setup. Or a duck. Could be a duck. Angel also doesn’t get the note. He’s sorry to Kaja, but still hangs up pictures of his family who doesn’t even live in the country. Quinn just wants to take the gift and fuck Nadia. Angel wants to know what’s up.
Angel Bautista has become self aware. Shut him down.
Dexter gets home to find Jaime going through Harrison’s toys. Dexter proving he’s not a robot who can cry human tears starts picking through the trash pile. He wants to keep lamby even though it smells like pee and Harrison hasn’t used it in a year. Jaime says Harrison’s learned to socialize and doesn’t need the security blanket anymore. Well with a father like Dexter he can’t just wait for him to come home to hang out at 4 am. Dexter wants to keep it for Harrison since it was a gift from Rita’s mother. He’s also thinking about his own mementos behind the AC cover and that he may need to dispose of some of his toys.
He’s back on the hunt, finding Speltzer back at work at the graveyard. Dexter goes searching through the trailer and contemplating his kill room. He finds Speltzer’s BALCO stash and some trophies of his own. Speltzer must have forgotten his bull horns and walks in on Dexter. Cartoon cloud fight ensues until Dexter is clubbed over the head and knocked unconscious.
Dexter awakens in a warehouse only to find a note saying Run. Dexter inner monologues how he ain’t no bitch…until he sees a man in a bull costume with an ax. He may not be afraid of no ghosts but minotaur ax murderers are another story and he books it.
The fear of a serial killer
He finds a stairwell and makes his way into a room with flashing lights and tons of mannequins. Definitely walk through that room, Dexter. That’s what someone in control does. He just makes his way to a bull mask to notice it’s just on a mannequin. Luckily for him, Speltzer doesn’t shower and he’s able to take him down and escape the room. Dexter picks up on Speltzer’s game and knows he’s being forced down. So he breaks through to the roof and runs to the streets. I guess he didn’t want to just go with another two by four to the head and kill him at the warehouse. He’ll wait until he’s more in control.
