Dexter: The Big One

In the season finale, Dexter's situation grows desperate when he discovers that Lumen's been set up. Despite knowing he's being baited into a trap, Dexter risks everything to make sure he doesn't fall into the same mistake again. In the Barrel Girls case, Debra lets her personal feelings lead her instincts once she concludes that vigilantes are more than just a theory. Quinn finds himself in a troublesome situation, which only Dexter can help him out of.

Moments later, Astor and the whole family surprise him by showing up from Orlando for Harrison’s birthday, instead of having Dexter drive all the way up there.

Dexter knows that this would only benefit all three of them, especially in terms of Astor and Cody possibly coming to terms with, and accepting the fact that they have lost their mother...
