In “Dexter” Season 5 Episode 6 “Everything is Illumenated,” Dexter has decided that what he needs is to find some deserving young man and kill him. So with a story about having to work late, Dexter leaves to do his work.
Things do not turn out as planned. Spoilers follow.
Dexter rents a trailer for his kill room. Having lured his target, a gentleman who likes to arrange for sordid boy-on-boy encounters that end in a particularly violent way, Dexter renders him unconscious and drags him into the trailer for final preparation. As he is wrapping the fellow in plastic, Dexter gets a call. It is Lumen, unexpectedly still in Miami. Lumen has just killed someone and now knows not what to do next.
Dexter is not pleased. He tosses tonight’s victim unto the back of his SUV and finds Lumen in a warehouse near the docks. Unfortunately, they do not find her victim, who has crawled away. Apparently Lumen has set forth to kill her tormentors not only without first learning how to fire a gun, but without figuring out a way to dispose of the body. Sighing at his lot in life, Dexter leads Lumen in a hunt for the victim.
Meanwhile, Debra is leading a team to stake out the club where the Santa Muerta killers like to hangout. The police chief is somewhat skeptical, thinking this is just an excuse for his detectives to drink and dance on the city’s dime. Nevertheless, the sting goes forward with Quinn on the floor drinking and dancing on the city’s dime and Angel and Debra in the van watching security monitors.
Quinn, by the way, is not only galloping Debra silly, but is also plotting against her brother Dexter with the help of a disgraced narcotics cop whom Laguerta helped to bring down. All they can find is that Dexter is squeaky clean. Too squeaky clean.
Debra is getting kind of bored watching Quinn rubbing up against every trollop he can find while allegedly keeping an eye out for the Santa Muerta brothers. So when a report comes about shots fired at the docks, she takes the call and goes forth to investigate.
Angel decides to leave the van and go out on the floor himself. He picks up a cute looking young lady. We know that the marriage is rocky, but is Angel being that stupid?
Meanwhile, at the docks, to where Debra is headed, Dexter and Lumen find the victim, a children’s dentist who seems guilty only of letting Lumen entice him out of the club he was at. While Dexter, thinking that Lumen has probably tried to whack another innocent, is tending to his wounds, the cell phone rings. He goes into another room. Little Harrison is saying his first words. “Die die! Die die!” The Irish nanny thinks he is trying to say, “Bye, bye!” Dexter hopes that is the case.
But one cannot leave Lumen alone for a second. She has taken advantage to torture the victim. Dexter makes her stop and drags her into the other room to explain why this is not a good idea. But then the victim gets his cell phone and starts to call his friends. “Hey, the b—h is still alive!”
Yes, Lumen actually got her a guilty one. Dexter dispatches him. Now, with Debra and the police close in, it is time to dispose of the body.
Another complication occurs when Dexter’s second victim comes to and starts to run. Dexter chases him down, strangles him, and drags him back into the room with the other corpse. Lumen is sent away to Dexter’s house. A little arranging and when Debra and company show up, a crime scene is invented of an auto-erotic choking encounter gone very wrong.
Dexter, exhausted, returns to his house, where he sent Lumen. There she is taking a bath, in the exact posture that he found Rita in, when she bled out. Ghastly.
Finally, Angel is waiting at Laguerta’s office with the young lady at the club. Apparently he noticed her wearing a Santa Muerta insignia. She is willing to lead them straight to the brothers. A better make up gift than flowers or a puppy, no?
