With EJO on ice and Travis fully embracing the batshit, Dexter is propelled straight from the church cellar and into the hunt. EJO’s ghost confronts Travis, telling him that he needs to face the facts: this whole Doomsday plot was his idea from the get-go. Instead of freaking out and doing whatever he can to redeem himself, as would be typical for the Travis side of his personality, he goes the other way, informing EJO’s ghost that he will finish their work.
The rest of the episode centers on Dexter disposing of EJO’s corpse, Travis recruiting new helpers, Deb and co. locating the church, Batista forgetting everything he learned at the police academy, Quinn drunk once again, Louis crying man-tears, Dead Harry quibbling, and the fate of Holly, the “whore” Nice Travis released–a move he’s decided was a mistake. Plus, Velveeta n’ crackers, y’all!
Also, we learn Travis has a history of mental illness and violent behavior. What a fuckin’ surprise! Join me later this week for the full recap!
