Stuck in the ocean miles from shore, Dexter is rescued by an old boat carrying illegal immigrants to the US. He even manages to render them a service. Once ashore, he heads home hoping to figure out where and when Travis will stage his last tableau. Travis has holed up in a small house and has killed the occupants. While he's away, the police show up and Dexter has something of a surprise waiting for him. Dexter makes it to son Harrison's school recital only to have Travis take the child. Meanwhile, Debra has a plan to catch Travis and gets LaGuerta's support for her plan. Debra also comes to terms with her feelings for Dexter. In his final confrontation with Travis, Dexter has him tied down on his execution table. Someone walks in just as he's committing the deed. Written by

Travis Marshall leaves the house saying "Today's the Day." This is similar too but the opposite of the common phrase Dexter has been known to use throughout the series "Tonight's the Night." See more
Near the end of the episode, Dexter gets hold of an old sword, used earlier for slashing a man to death on screen. A close-up on the blade clearly shows it's completely flat and blunt, and is likely made out of sheet metal. Also, moments later Dexter is shown pressing a knife against a man's forehead, and the blade bends significantly, revealing it's made out of rubber/plastic. See more
I guess it's fitting I end up where I've left so many others. I only wonder if the world will be a better place without me. It's wrong what people say about dying. I'm not flashing back over my life - over the lives I've taken. I'm thinking about the life I'll miss. Harrison, I'll miss watching my son grow up.
