Episode 4:10: “Lost Boys”
Harrison is getting his shots today. Rita is a basket case, but Dexter takes it all in stride. After all, he went through much more physical pain at a young age and didn’t remember it for a while.
He follows Arthur to a mall, where Arthur is stalking a family who has those stick figures on the back of the van, with names included. It’s a babysitter, a boy, and a girl, Arthur has all of the necessary information to go after the young boy. He pretends that he is a cop, even flashing a badge, and tells the boy that his parents have been in an accident. He needs to go with him immediately, and his sister is with his partner. Arthur realizes that “”Kyle”” is following him.
“”Kyle”” heads to Arthur’s house and enlists the help of Jonah to put an ends to the “sins of his father.”
Arthur has the young boy, Scott, hiding in a special basement. He keeps calling Scott, “Arthur,” and is trying to play electric trains with him.
Dexter is anxious to find Scott, because he knows that Scott would not have been abducted had he just killed Arthur. He feigns dinging a van the previous night to get fellow policemen to help him locate Arthur and where he may be hiding Scott. He goes to Scott’s house, under the guise of helping the police, to get even more information while he undertakes his manhunt.
Deb is becoming more suspicious of Christine. Christine is the same height as the shooter. She showed up too quickly at the crime scene. She agrees to do the interview with her, but only with Batista secretly watching. Deb shows her crime scene photos, in order to gauge her reaction. She also asks her how she was lucky enough to be the first reporter on the scene of the shooting. Batista also notices inconsistencies in her story. They are both convinced that she was at the shooting scene.
Jonah discovers real estate listings on his father’s computer. Dexter is convinced that Arthur is using one of these houses to hide Scott.
Cody gets into a fight at school after another child claims he saw Dexter returning to the camping site in the middle of the night.
Christine calls her father, begging to be able to see him, saying that she needs him more than his current family does. Arthur blows her off.
Deb asks Quinn to give her Christine’s toothbrush so that she can get some DNA evidence off of it to satisfy her hunch. Quinn is pissed, but complies. Christine starts to suspect something and starts begging her father to talk to her. She mentions something about a bathtub when she was little.
Dexter is desperately searching all of the houses on Arthur’s list, trying to find Scott. He is alienating everyone, because he is getting more and more anxious. Meanwhile, Scott just keeps Arthur talking, to save his own skin.
Christine finally gets a chance to meet with Arthur. She tells him about seeing him kill a woman in the bathtub. He tries to convince her it was just a dream, but she remembers other incidents. She has paid attention to him and his travels, and how a woman has died in every city that he has visited. The deaths match up the postcards he has sent her over the years. She also admits that she killed Lundy for him, because Lundy was getting too close. She will do anything for her father.
Dexter finally stumbles upon the house where Scott is being hidden, but they are too late. Scott is gone. Dexter runs to the house that Arthur is working on and catches him burying Scott in cement. He knocks out Arthur and pulls Scott out, alive.
Waiting for her father, Christine hears a knock on the door. She expects to see her father, but instead it is Batista, Quinn, and the Miami Metro police department, coming to arrest her.
Dexter goes home and holds his family tight.
