What’s gonna happen next? That’s the question fans are left asking when they watch episode 5 of Dexter, and see all kinds of twists and turns that are set-ups for the rest of the season!  

The show starts off with Dexter examining the angel wings from the end of episode 4 murder, and looking into that strange man, Travis, at the scene of that crime! He ends up finding out who Travis is, and later tracks him down. People think Travis might get killed, but it’s too early in the season. Oh, and Travis admits he’s too weak to kill, foiling Dexter’s plan and leaving him to make Travis walk away from his own car, and leaving himself to move on with his side investigation of the Doomsday Killer.

Before getting to Travis, Dexter visits the museum where Travis works. In his explorations, he finds a book that has the numbers missing, like the numbers he keeps finding in victims.  

Throughout the show, Travis and Gellar are hunting for their next victim, a ‘”whore of Babylon,” and while they embark on the Miami night life to choose this whore, Travis notices a newspaper with Gellar’s face on it! Gellar goes into hiding and Travis almost gets caught trying to trap his target. He frees her and later, thanks to his run in with Dexter, Travis is hesitant to see Gellar. Eventually they ‘run into’ a couple and get the woman in the trunk. Later, when Travis calls Gellar to say he’s not feeling well, Gellar is on to him!  

Deb and Anderson work together to learn more about Revelations and find Gellar’s old assistant from his teaching days. They end up sending Quinn and Angel to Tallahassee to talk with Charisa Porter, who turns out to be the latest notch on Quinn’s belt. When Angel comes to get Quinn in the morning, Angel finds a book in Porter’s home with drawings that are replicas of the crime scenes they’ve encountered already this season. Porter confirms it’s Gellar’s book!

At Miami Metro HQ, Masuka brings in a computer wiz named Louis to help hide the fact that the Ice Truck Killer ‘hand’ was online in a trading site. And Deb has to get the engagement ring back to Quinn…she forgot in the midst of her new role that she even had it and has to find it at home.

She and Harrison’s nanny Jamie get into a tiff when she’s in Dexter’s apartment (her temporary residence), and she has crime scene photos out in plain sight for Harrison! Lucky for her, a recent homicide left a beautiful waterfront property up for grabs and she’s going to move in soon! And at the crime scene, Anderson asks Dexter how he can be so professional and work with this team. Dexter responds about how great they are, including his lieutenant sister!

Brother Sam and Dexter had some nice (eerily familiar to Miguel) bonding time with beers on Dexter’s porch. It makes the audience wonder where the plot would go.

Turns out it would be revenge…Sam was gunned down in the last seconds of the show!
