Dexter knows it's only a matter of time before Miami Metro discovers the Trinity Killer's latest handiwork. Therefore, he has to work doubly hard to stay one step ahead of their investigation. Dexter has begun to realize that the closer he gets to Trinity, the more he stands to learn from this very different beast. Trinity hides behind a well-kept mask, and getting behind that facade will require some extra prodding on Dexter's part. Meanwhile, Debra becomes frustrated when she finds herself shut out from her own case. She considers bending the rules in the name of justice, risking her career in the process. LaGuerta and Batista come to regret a major decision, and realize that by playing by the rules they may have painted themselves into a corner. And when the friction between Rita and Dexter comes to a head, Dexter gleans relationship advice from a most unlikely source.

Masuka while disclosing details about the Mitochondrial DNA they found, said it emphatically that "its female", while in fact Mitochondrial DNA is ALWAYS female in Humans, which would make it only a fact Masuka would inform others and not actually spend time 'finding out'. Also, in his response to Masuka, Dexter mentions that the mitochondrial DNA must have belonged to the killer's mother, sister, daughter or grandmother. It was impossible for the DNA to have belonged to the killer's daughter, since mitochondrial DNA is always passed on from mother to child and never from the father. See more
