Arlene Schram (as Nicole Laliberte)


Dexter has decided to make a new life for himself with Hannah and Harrison but not before he takes care of the Brain Surgeon. In searching Zach Hamilton's photo studio he finds a clump of hair and blood hidden under a table. When Dexter runs the sample against the DNA database he finds a familial match - to Dr. Evelyn Vogel. Somewhat incredulous at his revelation, Vogel explains that she once had two sons, the eldest of which killed the other. He was placed in a mental institution but died in fire. Dexter believes he must have survived and soon has him identified. Deb meanwhile is having second thoughts about returning to Miami Metro. She's also agreed to let Hannah, who is now being sought by a Federal Marshall, hide out at her house. Written by garykmcd

Wow They Are Sure Making Dexter Into A Little Love Puppy...
25 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jesus Christ what is happening to Dexter. Thank the writers for turning Dexter into a little stupid love puppy for Hannah. Seriously, theses last three episodes Dexter is not even himself anymore. Do we really need to hear Dexter say "I love you Hannah", "Be with me Hannah," "Hannah" every single damn time their with each other or even when Dexter is alone. Hell theses last few episodes with the return of Hannah is greatly putting this season downhill.

Honestly, this episode was nowhere surprising leading to nothing. Just another filler episode with more useless scenes of Dexter and Hannah. Is this really the final season of Dexter we are witnessing. The only good thing about the episode is that we they finally reveal who Brain Surgeon is.
