Dex's angelic patience with April last while she goes trough a list of apologies, but ends when she completely forgets him and consults uninformed Xavier about Dex's 'mood', only to be told it might stem from sexual frustration. Stu demonstrates his drawing to Sasha with a surfing scene. She has motive from it tattooed on her thigh. Already stressed by his exams, Stu is appalled and smacks her impulsively. Indecisive Charlie's inconsistent messing up on both sides catches up when inspector Joyner takes her off the robbery case. Darryl seems fatally framed, until all evidence in the case is stile from a police car. That's set up by Charlie, who tipped him off implicitly. Written by
"Because sweet, almost innocent April is sorry, everything's better"
The morality of this episode is as grey as it's ever been, as Charlie breaks every regulation she can to get Brax off the hook on the one crime he actually didn't commit.As ever, the treatment of Brax compared to the treatment of almost every other suspect is rather silly:Benji is locked up on the basis of a hunch while Brax is allowed to wander around free despite a large amount of evidence.Joyce does finally seem to be tiring of Charlie's behaviour and Watson is nicely characterised.
April's round of apologies doesn't really win her much sympathy and comes across as rather self-centred and insincere at times, with only her chat with Ruby coming across as genuine.It's telling too that that scene and her exchange with Xavier are the only times she really comes alive but the introduction of some much needed tension between her and Dexter over her recent behaviour raises the game.
