While Dexter is thinking about what he can do with Miguel, the ADA blackmails Dexter using Debra's affair with a potential witness in a conflict of interests. Dexter decides to seek Ellen's ring that Miguel took as a trophy, luring the housemaid. When Barbara is assaulted by a man, Angel asks Dexter to secretly examine a key with the DNA of the aggressor. Dexter finds the identity of the guy but advises Angel that certain doors should remain closed. Lt. Laguerta arrests the bartender that called Ellen Wolf three times in the tragic night and the man discloses that he saw a SUV with halogen headlights leaving her house. Miguel tries to manipulate Maria, but Dexter interrupts them. Rita tells Sylvia that Miguel is having an affair with Lt. Maria Laguerta and she heads to her house and ends their marriage. Miguel Prado sells Dexter to the Skinner telling that he knows Freebo's hideout. Dexter decides that he shall kill Miguel, but he is kidnapped and thrown in the trunk of a car.

In this episode, the duel between Miguel and Dexter reaches a climax with the Dexter's abduction. Lt. Laguerta recalls the lead of a SUV with halogen headlights when Miguel leaves her place and she might associate the dots in the next episodes. My vote is nine.
