Dexter had his way with Hannah McKay on episode 6 of “Dexter” season 7, except this time, he used his butcher knife to release his intended victim from her plastic restraints in the closed-down carnival that had enchanted the serial murderess. Read the full recap after the jump.
Turns out Peter Cottontail isn’t the only thing Hannah has been dispatching with deadly poison. Dexter learns that both Hannah’s husband and her mentor — Beverly Grey, from whom she inherited her nursery, both died. He suspects poison, and discovers that she has been harvesting aconite for years on her greenhouse property. And because her victims apparently died of natural causes, Hannah has gotten away with murder.
Sal Price, the true-crime writer who penned “Love on the Run” about Wayne Randall and Hannah McKay’s killing spree, visits Miami Metro to follow up on the case. Dexter discovers that Sal is writing a Hannah McKay sequel, has an independent investigator review the blood report on the newlyweds’ bodies, which incriminates Hannah and that a man whom McKay accused of molesting her in juvie dropped dead of the aforementioned rat poison.
Another Miami Metro case falls apart when Quinn, to save his girlfriend Nadia, steals the blood evidence linking Isaak Sirko to the Colombian murders. Meanwhile, Batista contemplates retiring and buying a restaurant, while LaGuerta theorizes that the Bay Harbor Butcher is linked to the disappearances of the Barrel Girls suspects.
In other news, Deb went out on a date with crime writer Sal Price, who suspects that Hannah McKay played more of a part in Randall’s murders than his previous work – and her immunity deal – would indicate.
