Episode 4 of “Dexter” season 7 is titled “Run,” after a note left by serial killer Speltzer when he finds himself trapped in the Minotaur’s maze. Read the full recap after the jump. [warning]SPOILERS![/warning]
Deb took another step closer to accepting her brother’s murderous ways when she finally got to experience the satisfaction of Dexter taking justice into his own hands after watching the justice system fail. After narrowly escaping Speltzer’s grasp last episode, Deb extracted a confession from him this week using some twisted psychological manipulation, but he was set free when a judge ruled Miami Metro had roughed him up and not properly read him his Miranda Rights.
Dexter took out Ray Speltzer staging his kill in the crematorium. After stabbing him, Dexter sends Speltzer into the fire — along with his second box of blood slides. The fact that Deb agrees to pick him up at the crematorium — and admits she’s glad he’s dead — is a good sign. “What does that make me?” she asks Dexter. “Human,” is his reply.
In other news, the Ukrainian mob boss Isaac now knows exactly who Dexter is and where he works. Even though he gives his club’s bartender an offer he can’t refuse — take the fall for Mike’s murder by committing suicide — it’s not over with Viktor.
Hannah and Dexter reconnect at the station, where she is helping with the Wayne Randall investigation.
