Life for Dexter is returning to normal. He's taking care of his son with the help of Angel Batista's sister Jamie. He dispatches two EMTs who have been killing patients to harvest their organs and he's looking forward to his high school 20th anniversary reunion. Not surprisingly, Dexter was something of an outsider in school but one girl, Janet, was at least nice to him. She dated and eventually married the schools star quarterback Joe Walker but committed suicide after they were married. Dexter is certain that Joe killed her and his main interest in the reunion weekend is to get a DNA sample from him. Elsewhere, Maria LaGuerta has been promoted to Captain and she and Angel are divorced. They're still friends and she is recommending him as her replacement as Lieutenant. Deb and Quinn are still living together and he is getting ready to pop the question - only to be interrupted in a restaurant in an unusual way. Finally, the entire squad has to deal with the disappearance of a roadside fruit seller. From the evidence at the scene, they think the man may have been disemboweled. When his body washes up on shore, they find something has been put into his torso.

Dexter's victims: 

Ben and Roger. Paramedics, responsible for the death of some patients. Heart stopped with a defibrillator.

Joe Walker. He brutally killed his wife. Skull crushed with a hammer, and stabbed in the chest.

The investigation into the dead man with the snakes put into his torso advances when one of the students finds heavy metals in their system. The two men responsible for that killing continue their preparations. Deb meanwhile has a day to remember. Still getting praise from her colleagues over the restaurant shooting, Quinn has a surprise waiting for her in the refrigerator. It's left to Deputy Chief Tom Matthews to spring the biggest surprise of all however.

Deb faces her first day as the homicide squad's Lieutenant. She isn't sure she's made the right decision given that she not used to the administrative side of the job and the fact that she is also supervising her now ex-boyfriend Quinn. She also has to deal with Captain LaGuerta who seems to want to do both her new and her old job. The police find another body on the shore. The dead woman may have been a prostitute but it's her missing tooth that sends Dexter to an old scrap book. He finds a newspaper clipping for a serial killer from Oregon who the press labeled the Tooth Fairy after the fact that he kept a tooth from each of his victims. Masuka shows intern Ryan Chambers some evidence from the Ice Truck Killer case. He also manages to ask her out on a date. Gellar and Marshal meanwhile have taken a jogger prisoner.

Dexter's victim: Walter Kenney. The Tooth Fairy Killer. Suffocated with a pillow.
