The episode begins with Dexter and Hannah's slab sex. She grabs a knife and puts it to his throat while they are at it and asks why he wanted to kill her. He says "it's what I do". He basically says he kills bad people, which seems to turn her on. On a date Price and Debra talk about Hannah. She suggests exhuming the body of Hanna's ex-husband to check for poison and he tells her the man has a sister who might give permission. They appear to be hitting it off. In the car Dexter tells Hannah they can't have sex again. She agrees. He wonders why she isn't more shaken up and she says perhaps she never really thought he'd go through with it.
Dexter drops her off and sees that Price, who was sitting in his car, saw the whole thing that transpired between the two of them. Dexter tells Price he can't write about this or his career is over, but Price doesn't seem interested in keeping quiet from the looks of it. Dexter offers to give him Randall's last words and Price says he'll think about it, but doesn’t really commit to anything. Debra tells Maria they have to consider abandoning their investigation since all the signs still point to Doakes. Maria agrees with her and says "maybe you're right". Dexter researches Price. Debra comes in and shows him the blood work from the Randall killing which indicates there was another killer. She thinks he is covering for Hannah in order to get her on his table.
Masuka comes in and tells Dexter and Angel that the blood evidence for Isaak is missing. Maria demands to know what happened to the evidence. They think there must be a mole, who is involved. Some of the guys return to the crime scene and find that Isaak's people have sabotaged the building. This means Isaak will walk. Angel takes Quinn aside and shows him that his name was on the evidence locker sheet. He says he wanted to hear it directly from Quinn. Dexter tells Debra he'll take care of Isaak, but she makes him promise to stay away from the whole issue and makes it clear that she doesn’t want him involved in anyway. Price brings Debra the number for Laurie, Hanna's late husband's sister. Quinn on the other hand goes to see Nadia. She hasn't been hurt, but says she is scared.
He doesn't say what happened, but promises her she'll soon be free. Isaak is released from prison. Laurie tells Debra that Hannah had been expecting, but had a miscarriage soon after her brother's Jake's death. She tells her about the theory regarding Hannah being responsible. Price asks Hannah to talk to him for his next book. He references Dexter, while he is at it. She in turn says she'll talk as long as he keeps Dexter out of the book. Price calls Dexter and says he's taking him up on his offer. Dexter looks at Christy Lawson, a victim Price wrote about whose killer was never found. He's going to try and plant evidence linking Price to the murder. Quinn tells George he wants Nadia's passport.
George doesn't sound like he's going to honor their original deal and threatens him with exposing the tampering with evidence. Dexter tells Hanna about Price seeing them together, which means they could be in trouble. She tells him about talking with Price. Dexter tells her he's planning to get rid of Price, so he doesn’t cause them anymore trouble. She wonders if he's ever thought about what life would be like if he didn't have his code. Dexter thinks to himself that the two of them would be combustible together, after he has given what she said a thought.
Debra open's Jake's casket and finds that he was never embalmed much to her surprise. Turns out, it's just bones and there is nothing to test. Laurie is emotional that all of this was for nothing, at the end of the day. Debra tells Price about Jake's body. He says he's going to meet with Hannah and plans to fill her in afterwards, about her discovery. At the beginning of the interview Hannah makes Price promise to leave out Dexter. Dexter breaks into Price's place and steals some DNA, including a toothbrush and dental floss, as a part of his plan to frame him. He then sits at Price's computer and deletes his research on Hannah, as the next step of his plan. Hannah tells Price about killing the couple. When the wife jumped on Randall to save her husband Hannah jumped in to help.
Through tears Hannah says she stabbed the wife basically to stop her from screaming. Hannah weeps, while she is describing the whole thing to him. Isaak approaches Dexter at lunch. He's still being followed by a patrol car as it turns out, so he's not there to do Dexter any harm, from the looks of it. Isaak wants to know what drove Dexter to kill Viktor. Isaak doesn't believe that it was simply out of vengeance, and feels there was something more to it. Dexter gives him some explicit details about how he killed Viktor, and then promises to do the same thing to Isaak. Price drops by Dexter's place for their interview, as per their agreement. Dexter threatens to frame him for the Lawson murder. Price gets visibly upset by Dexter’s threat, and then grabs his chest and falls into the table.
Dexter tells Jamie to call 911 and starts performing CPR, in order to revive Price. But it’s to no avail, and Price dies. Dexter later tells Quinn and Angel that his interview got heated, which then result in what happened to Price. Debra arrives and sees the body. She thinks it must have been Hannah. Hannah is brought into the station for questioning and Dexter is surprised she doesn't look concerned. Debra interviews Hannah, who says she has no idea Price, is dead. She references Beverly and the murder with Randall, and then says a tox screen on Price is on the way, and would reveal the actual truth behind his death. Dexter watches their conversation on closed circuit and doesn't think Hannah is acting, as far as he can tell.
Dexter pays Hannah a visit and she admits to killing Price, for both of them. She put something on one of his pens, she elaborates. Dexter tells her about destroying Price's files on her. She says her ex threatened to leave her if she didn't get an abortion. She killed him, but then had a miscarriage. They kiss, by the end of it. Quinn gives Angel money to help finish paying for his restaurant. Angel thinks it's too generous, but eventually takes it as a loan. Masuka gives Debra the tox screen on Price. It's negative for everything.
Maria does some late-night research and seems to find something related to Debra and Dexter. Debra listens to Price final interview with Hannah. She calls Dexter who is with Hannah and says there needs to be some justice with respect to Hannah. She says "It's up to you, Dex. Do what you do". The episode ends at this point.
