The episode begins with Hannah’s cruising around the ladies jail to meet Dexter for a visit. Hannah asks why he turned her in when he said he loved her. He says she poisoned Deb. Hannah seems to admit it and says “because she tried to keep us apart”. Hannah tells him she’ll be behind bars forever. She says he should have chosen her. Dexter reminds her that Deb’s his sister. Dexter tells her if there was any other way to keep Deb safe, he would have done it. He’s clearly distraught and tells her he misses her a lot. She tells him it’s not too late that if the pen disappears, she can be free. She says they can run away together. ..
