Cody and Astor Bennett are the children of Paul and Rita Bennett. Cody does not remember the abuse his mother suffered at the hands of his father and so, when Paul returns home from prison, he is overjoyed. During season two, Astor and Cody try to maintain their relationship with Dexter even though he broke up with their mother; Cody hides toys in his bag, forcing him to come to their home to return it, and asks Dexter to attend an oral report he makes in class. Dexter’s love for Cody and Astor helps convince Rita to rekindle their relationship. As Season 3 begins, Dexter’s relationship with the children has developed to such an extent that Cody asks him to be a speaker at his school for Parent’s Day.
