How long for you to get to 180 Countant Uhh 20-30 minutes I got it Dex You got what Only the case that's gonna get me my shield It's huge Angel put me on it officialy on it Huge? Who the hell are you? I bet you wonder who the hell he is Who he is, is what makes this case huge It's Miguel Prado He's that ADA that's been on a mission to put away as many bad guys as he can you know "a safe Miami is the only Miami" A safe Miami and we're all unemployed Why does he look so familiar? Cause he just made the cover of Florida Magazine Top prosecutor in the state two years in a row He and Laguerta go way back you know that whole Cubano thing Yeah the guy is Ramon Prado Miguels middle brother He's a lieutenant with the sheriffs department Made himself quite the reputation for being a law and order hard ass and Oscar.
Prado? as in baby brother So much for spontaneousity What was he doing in a dump like this? They're saying that he was a coach at a youth club Came here to confront the scum bag who was selling shit to his kids Talk about the wrong place at the wrong time Tell me about it Find anything? Yeah dead guy with a hole in his chest This window is cracked, there's blood on the wall Who shut these drapes? Probably first on scene Some dipshit review? still outside puking So what do we got? Signs of a majorly big struggle here, there, everywhere Single stabwound to the chest You read my article yet? Started it So far it is realy good Awesome Whoever did this He's already wishing he was dead Someone realy stepped on his dick with this one There where so many lessions in the wanted code of Harry Twisted commandments handed down from the only god I ever worshiped One through ten Don't get caught.
That I got covered But killing someone without knowing if he's guilty I'd love some help on this one But my god is dead now Mans best friend right Dex? Not today Hey my sister says that LaGuerta knows this Miguel Prado pretty well Way back when when we Hey wazzup? Way back when when we Mighuel was in law school and Maria was just starting in law enforcement They hooked up Hooked up? Between us for Maria Miguel Prado will always be the one who got away Prelim has the victim Oscar Prado 26 dead Dead from a single stabwound to the chest The deceast brother ADA Miguel Prado informed the active scene that Oscar went to confront one Fred Bowman streetman Freebo for selling drugs to some youth club kids Morgan.
This Freebo is the same guy that killed those two co-ed's in the Everglides and got away with it so the way it looks Oscar Prado died a hero Also our team found a shitload of substantial amount of drugs in the house Any leads on his whereabouts? That part of the neighbourhood isn't exactly policefriendly but i'm staying on it Talk to me about forensics Evidence indicates this was no hit and run It was a furious close end battle Whoever.
.
Was it whomever? Whoever's good Whoever did this got in a lucky shot or was realy good at handling a blade According to the ME the aorta was cleanly severed in one penetration Not easy to do Any luck finding the weapon? It's not on either premises We've checked roofs, sewers, trashbins in a five blocks radius Our conclusion the assailant took it with him.
Dexter what's the blood saying? Pretty much what everyone else is I have some second level on scene work to do I get back to you ASAP Give it to sergeant Baptista Full disclosure I've had a personal relationship with the Prado family for many years and it goes alot further than the whole Cubano thing Sergeant Stating the obvious lieutenant I'd like Freebo for this Me too Morgan.
Yes mam Hit the streets harder Learn what you can learn With all due respect lieutenant if Freebo did this he's not in Miami I mean he's in the winds We could sit around on our asses and speculate on wherever we think the prime suspect may or may not be or we can actualy go and look for him As a Miami prosecutor I have dedicated my career to fighting crime To make our streets safe for everyone Every family white, black, latino, asian deserves the full measures of our devotion to their dignity another crime has touched my family in the most profound way imaginable I grieve equaly for every family that has been visited with the same unimaginable news that we have received today Our beautiful city is a city of families and the untimely taking of any of us touches all of us My parents brought my brothers from.
Part of my ritual has always been to get to know my victims Confirming their guilt beyond all doubt.
Oscar Prado tried to kill Freebo and he tried to kill me No way he was there on some noble youth club mission He's got to be guilty of something Aren't we all? So I ask again Who are you? Two speeding tickets and an illegal u-turn What about outside the code of Harry Harry finds me in a pool of blood Turns me into his own personal vendeta machine and when he see's the monster he created in action he kills himself Death can drink to his honor on his own Any luck in the land of reluctant witnesses One house I play good cop the next i play bad cop I still can't get shit from anybody in that neighbourhood You know what the problem is right? Wait Quinn let me guess The cop part? No they don't owe you anything There's no insentive which gives the balance of power weighing in their direction, right Her let me give you one thing, call this guy, tell him you know me.
Tell him you want to cash in one of my coupons.
Coupons ? Yeah he's a CI from my days in narcotics.
He got a hook in him and it's not coming out aanytime soon.
What you want in return? For you to remember that i did you a solid Not even a thank you? Thank you Stop looking at my ass Detective.
Officer.
Your Anton? In the flesh You got something you want to show me? Oh yeah I've seen him before Realy? Where? In the news Isn't that the guy you let walk with those co-ed killers.
Now that there was some fine piece of police work You know him from the news paper Yeah i think i saw him on CNN or something Ok that's all you got? Thats all you got You know if you and Quinn's fucking with me Im realy not in the mood You know summer if you need something for that temper I got a man down the street that sells realy ?mellow weak? to take that edge right off.
Well thank you but i don't take advice from drugdealers so.
.
Drugdealers?! Oh never that.
Drug user, occationaly Strictly weed though officer, strictly weed Then how did you become Quinns snitch I got caught up in a drugbust Quinn told me if I blew the whistle on the bigger fish I would stay out of jail so i listened attentively Yeah well you know it never hurts for an occational drug user to have another friend on the force That's the thing officer I got enough friends Yeah well im out of here Yeah you have a good one you hear What about this Prado guy? .
.
and to determine the impact site.
The exact point where forces carry the body You have to distinguish the geometric differences between backspatter, satelite spatter, misting and arterial spurting - Groose! - Shut up! Ehm, you remember how before when Caties dad was talking about being a surgent Yeah and sometimes how he has to cut into bodies and there's blood But he saves lives Do you save lives? Ok you know how there's good guys and there's bad guys? So you catch bad guys? Well not directly but I help Do you have a uniform? Eh, lab coat A gun? No He got a badge.
A laminate Well thank you so much for taking time from your busy schedule Mr.
Morgan to come and talk to the children Yeah it was a real learning experience Looks like I realy got through to em huh It would have sucked even worse today if I didn't have a dad today Thanks for inviting me buddy If anyone should have father issues, anger, rejection, abandonment it's Cody and what does he do? He moves on.
How does that happen? I was so bad you're crying? No, no it's just something I always wanted You being here for the kids It felt so wonderfully uncomplicated Hello? Mr.
Morgan this is Miguel Prado I need to see you Right away So much for uncomplicated It almost looks like a piece of art Thank you sir but to me it's more like a story Tell me that story Mr.
Morgan The encounter started over here The scuff-marks on the linoleum, the crumpling, the thrower-up, they all have the directional followty that leads to.
.
Now this is where your brother and Freebo he's my lieutenants prime suspect But you know that There was a brutal struggle I got to say it looks like your brother fought like a hero but he was overmatched and sustained a fatal stabwound to the chest Everything about the blood suggests that your brother bleed out almost instantly.
Did he suffer? Blood never lies So now i know how he died Question is why Well one more thing Mr.
Morgan Why would a blood spatter analyst spend time searching the sheriff departments database for information on my dead brother Uhm Like you sir I wanted to understand what happened here I felt that knowing some details about your brothers life help me make sense out of his death In your line of work Mr.
Morgan is it usual for you to get so involved? I just sounded like a prosecutor there, i'm sorry It's not a problem sir and no it's not usual for me to get so involved but this one, this death got to me It's just.
.
it seem so unreal.
.
he's gone Yeah I know So a man died Mr.
Morgan and what's left a soul? And what is that exactly? I realy couldn't tell you Because some people say the soul lives on forever I don't know Which makes you a synic It makes me a scientist So noone you ever loved has died? My father died when I was in my twenties and you don't believe that his soul, call it his lifeforce is still here somehow living inside you? Because I I should have been there for him You can't blame yourself sir.
It's easier said than done Mr.
Morgan Do me a favour You realy want to get to know my brother like you say Come to his wake tonight Come see how much and how, how fully he was loved.
Ok Taken enough of your day here, thank you.
.
Dexter This reports final? Blood specimen's I collected all came back belonging to Oscar Prado Trace prints on and around the victim all points to Freebo Anyone out there talking? Officer Morgan was hitting up the usual firewall of clammed up witnesses and eyewitnesses so I put her in touch with an old CI of mine hopefully she Hey Quinn that CI you put me on was totaly useless for Freebo Sadly it's not a perfect world Yeah for all we know Freebo is in like Nebraska by now Well I guess you don't owe me that favour then How come he gets favours? He doesn't But what the CI told me about the victims He wasn't some hero coach that went into the hood and took one for the team What do you mean? Oscar Prado was into Freebo for some serious cash Now why would someone be into i don't know a drugdealer for big bucks.
Because Oscar Prado the pride of little Havannah was a fucking junkie.
Thanks Maria Good one Morgan She's been in better moods Yeah I didn't exactly brighten her day No you didn't Excuse me for doing my fucking job! You see any other supercops coming down here with any leads? No Deb you're definitly amazing but you gotta I know i know i know Be aware of my surroundings take the temperature of the room before I open my mouth I know it's a bad habit I admit it Well look on the bright side now that you've given up men, boose and cigarettes running your mouth is the only bad habbit you have left That's right I'm a model of fucking perfection You know what day it is today right? How could I forget? You wanted to see me? Hey Baptista I need you to think about Debbie Morgans continued involvement on the Oscar Prado case You want me to throw her under the bus for what being a little overzealous It's not about heal It's about tact and sensitivities It's also about the real world This case is as high profile as it gets.
I No Morgan is resourceful, intanatious and usualy the right amount of pain in the ass But there's political ramifications and my history with Miguel Prado aside this case is just too big for her Just say the word Maria and I will follow your orders Becoming a homicide sergeant is more than just a bump in payscale it's a quantum leap in responsibility All part of moving up the chain If i'll bounce her she'll hate me Your her boss ? not her friend It's up to you Can I get another cranberry juice That makes three problems down under Geez I like the fucking taste ok Miss you dad My condolences Thank you for coming Losing my brother it's gonna leave a pain in my heart that I don't think ever gonna heal You have a brother Dexter? No just a one loud sister What she said back at the station It's ok I know my brother was a good man but i can tell that he suffered from the tragedy of perfection Who doesn't Oh indeed You attacked me with a knife in a dopedealers house.
No Oscar you certainly didn't suffer from the tragedy of perfection Then why do this feel so wrong? Why in your death are you still so alive in my life Did you know him well? Not as well as I thought Sorry Cuervo black Thanks Harry What the hell is that? Cranberry Juice is that gonna be a problem? Not even close to a problem but the taste is kinda funky You know by the time my dad was my age he already had his shield Kinda why i'm here I'm taking you off the Oscar Prado case I come up with grade a intel on Oscar Prado and I get tossed of the case for being a little loud? In a nutshell Did Maria put you up to this? It was my decision I'll tell you one thing Angel I'm not letting anyone getting in the way of me getting my shield There's only one person in this apartment that can get in your way Who? You Can I get a real fucking drink please? My sister still lives her life trying to please her father Me I'm following the lead of an eight year old kid I'm moving on Thank you for last night It was a nice surprise This is where I wanted to be Ah, again? All I want is chocolate pudding.

Not you, Harry Deb i'm in a whole other place when it comes to dad I'm working out some personal stuff You're such a fucking guy What is this you got to kill your father so you can become your own man kind of bullshit Dad wasn't perfect but he was there for you - Deb wait - What? Im sorry I didn't notice your haircut So what is it, is it too short too young too dorky, what? It's beautiful Beautiful? You just said beautiful Yeah I did, cause it is It's like you honored dad for the both of us last night anyway I had some help You getting along with the new boss man? Aw fucker took me off the Oscar Prado case and put me on this Some dead end John Doe A couple of ladies of the night called this in Oh mother the Joz Could you turn that thing off! We'll work quietly About half way through your article Vince so far it is very moving Yeah I was trying to make second serie chromosome analysis sexy Glad you picking up on it Strangled There's no blood i'm the blood guy Why did you call me in Because of this Looks like our evildoer had an agenda Maybe it's a tattoo or something Dex I need to know if this was anti or post mortem Tegan Freebo's girlfriend Looks like he's still in Miami Hi there - You talk to Morgan yet? - Yep How'd she take it? There where curse words involved You did good Sergeant Way to be Thank you There ya go Dexter Good as new Hold the elevator, hold.

You still have the wrong person? There's a good reason why Quinn's of interest to IA Understand me when I say you have the wrong person I mean me These people are more than just badgenumbers to me They're my friends They're my family It's the sound of your shield calling for help Harry said that what's inside me would be there for ever and that I wouldn't be able to change He was half right Killing Oscar Prado was a bell I can't unring I had moved on from my father But i still need his code Now more than ever but it has to evolve Become my own Change is good Hey you Hey yourself This music again?
