Jordan Chase is onto Dexter and Lumen. Dexter moves Harrison out of Miami and Lumen to a new place temporarily, until they all are no longer in danger, but Liddy is already on to Lumen and Dexter. Lumen starts to get anxious and wants to dole out some justice already. Dexter shows Lumen a photo of Emily Birch, the woman who got away. It turns out that she was not only the first victim, but that when it began with her, they were all at summer camp, and it was twenty years prior to today...

Episode Notes
The house of Emily Birch is the same house that belonged to one of the Trinity killer's victims (Tarla), as shown in the episode Remains to Be Seen.

Some bars were added before the doors and windows, but it has the same colors and distinctive pattern on the glass of the door.

Episode Quotes
Dexter: I'm glad you didn't touch any of them... Because this DNA will clear you then leave you all to me... and her.
