Dexter Episode Recap: "My Bad" Season 5, Episode 1

Following Rita's brutal murder, Dexter struggles with his complicated grief. Meanwhile, as the team turns Dexter's case over to the FBI, Quinn can't help but wonder if Dexter was involved in the tragedy.

Born in Blood

The season premiere of Dexter picks up right where we left off. Dexter has arrived home after killing Trinity to discover Rita dead in their bathtub with her femoral artery slit and Harrison crying on the bathroom floor in a pool of blood. "Born in blood, both of us," Dexter says to himself. "It doesn't matter what I do. This is fate."

The first responders arrive to find Dexter on his knees in the front yard, holding a screaming Harrison. When the police arrive and ask Dexter what happened, he responds blankly, "Rita's inside. It was me." Probably not the best choice of words at a murder scene. Deb and the team arrive, but despite Batista's protest, Laguerta says they can't take the case because Trinity belongs to the feds.

As the chaos unfolds at the crime scene, for once, Dexter is actually looking for his father to appear and help him. An FBI agent jumps all over Dexter to question his previous comment, but Deb quickly shuts the man down and brings her brother and Harrison to her apartment.
