Dexter learns that his biological father (named Joe Driscoll), whom he was told had died 30 years ago, has just recently died and left him everything he owned, including his house. He goes on a trip to pack the items in the house, along with Rita. But later, Debra and Rudy also show up at the house to help out, where Dexter clicks with Rudy, while suspecting something strange about Joe Driscoll's death, and about who Dexter's biological mother was. Flashbacks to Dexter's childhood show him questioning Harry about who his real parents were, and about an accident which an anonymous person donated some of his blood to help the young Dexter during his surgery and it happened to be Mr. Driscoll. Back in Miami, Angel questions a shooting incident involving Doakes and a suspect. Also, Paul begins to slide back into his old habits when he suspects Rita is keeping him away from unsupervised visits to their children. Written by

Dexter learns that Driscoll bequeathed to him a house in Dade City, Florida. Dade City is in the eastern part of Pasco County, and is a suburb of that big Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater area; non-Floridians can think of Dade City as being about 170 miles west of DisneyWorld. (Pasco County also has a large beach coast on the West Coast of Florida.) The home that Dexter and Rita go to see is given the house number 5570, and the house opposite is 5561. In Florida, avenues and roads usually run north and south, and streets run west-east, but even if Dexter fans wanted to chase down these houses, they should remember that probably false numbers were put on the houses by the crew.

The medical personnel in Dexter's childhood flashback reveal that his blood type is AB-. He goes on to state that "it's hard to come by, and our supply was low." While it is correct that type AB- is the rarest blood type, at around 1% frequency in the US, a person with AB- blood can receive a blood transfusion from donor blood of types AB-, A-, B-, and 0-, making it a preferable blood type to have for a person on the receiving end of a transfusion.

[At the morgue, Dexter meets Dr. Pittman. Dexter is not at all impressed by Dr. Pittman's inflated opinion of himself; and Dexter trusts less and less in the doctor's abilities as an observer as the scene goes on
I gave Joe a physical once a year, like clockworks, and no history of heart disease, but it happens.
Mm-hm, it appears so.
About to send him to the Crematorium when we found you. We thought his son should have his chance to pay his last respects.
I'm not his son.
