More information about the 1×6 episode of Dexter: New Blood
The titled “Too Many Tuna Sandwiches” begins with Dexter (Michael C. Hall), still going by the name of Jim Lindsay, noting how Harrison is more participative in the household chores. After a few moments of mistrust involving his son and a bout of rebellion, the ex-serial killer still seems to suspect something involving Harrison (Jack Alcott).
The young man informs his father that Kurt (Clancy Brown) has offered him a job and argues how important the opportunity would be to his financial independence. However, Dexter doesn’t think this is a good idea, given that he had previously killed this man’s son. For this reason, the character refuses to sign Harrison’s consent form as the boy is still a minor.
Even so, he is willing to fight Dexter and accepts Kurt’s job with more signs of rebellion. In fact, Harrison is not attending the school’s recommended therapy sessions, which makes the ex-serial killer even more suspicious of his own son. While these conflicts were taking place, Kurt was trying to make a new victim, becoming interested in Molly (Jamie Chung).
When Angela (Julia Jones) finally manages to meet Dexter, the character then reveals that she already knows everything about her true identity. No way out, he is forced to share more details of his past with his current girlfriend, including citing Rita (Julie Benz) and Debra (Jennifer Carpenter). Despite the initial lie, Angela seems to forgive Dexter.
Dexter later pursues Molly until he discovers she has been captured by Kurt, which leads him to realize that this man is the killer Angela has been looking for. Thinking of saving Molly and unmasking Kurt, Dexter infiltrates the killer’s remote hut. And along with these actions, the audience is guided by Angela in the isolated caves of Iron Lake, where the police officer begins to suspect Kurt.
The episode ends with Angela turning to Dexter about what she had discovered that afternoon. After examining the rock path around the cave, she located the body of Iris, her childhood best friend who had been murdered. For that reason, she needs her boyfriend to use his forensic skills to find out what actually happened.
