Once Dexter comes back to his senses, he somehow escapes from his captivity. He figures out ways how he can hide his tracks from Elric. But Elric is very experienced in hunting.

While Dexter is on the run, Elric shoots him in the leg and then follows his blood tracks.

He thinks of a trap in a wounded state and drags himself to the summer camp. We can see his constant state of dark humour even when shot. The summer camp would be where the serial killer would make his last stand.

Dexter is already preoccupied with Elric, and Kurt uses this opportunity to go after Harrison. Kurt is sure that the boy has some darkness in him. When Harrison had broken his opponent’s arm, he became assured about it.

Kurt takes Harrison to school even on holidays. They break into the premises, and Kurt leads him to the indoor batting cage. As the curveballs keep on hitting Harrison, Kurt notices the rage that starts developing in the boy.
