Dexter finds that he was kidnapped by his colleagues and the destination is his bachelor party. Maria suspects that Miguel has murdered Ellen Wolf and collects evidences from his SUV and asks Dexter to secretly analyze them. However, Miguel monitors her authorization and decides to eliminate Maria too. Dexter discloses to Debra that their father had an affair with a CI. Dexter breaks in Miguel's room in the hotel and finds that he intends to kill Maria, but he lures Miguel with a phone call and captures him. Debra and Quinn follow a lead and meet the Skinner, but Quinn is wounded in the forehead.

This episode begins with a bachelor party to Dexter and a farewell to Miguel Prado. Debra is disappointed with Harry after learning that he cheated her mother. My vote is nine.
