Runaway is the fifth of ten episodes in the Showtime special event series Dexter: New Blood. It first aired 5 December 2021.

Dexter’s method of protecting his son from drugs unleashes his Dark Passenger in a very impulsive way. Meanwhile Angela and Molly take a trip to New York City that leaves them wondering about a well-respected member of the community.


Dexter looks at the knife Harrison used. Deb tells Dexter she wants to help him not become Dexter. Dexter tells Deb he wants to guide Harrison through this.

Kurt lets the girl with green hair, Chloe, into his spare room telling her to stay as long as she likes, “meals included”. Chloe is shocked by his kindness and is so grateful to have a place to stay. She asks what he wants from her. He just says he asks humbly that she pay it forward.

Sergeant Logan walks in to let Angela know that Matt’s credit card statements show he was at a hotel in New York the last three nights. Molly Park is sitting on a couch in Angela’s office and seems frustrated- “no dead guy, no podcast”.

Angela is fuming that Matt is eating five star room service while the town has been freezing looking for him. Molly suggests they go to the city to confront him - Logan accuses her of only wanting to do that to save her podcast, but Angela agrees that it’s good timing because there is a Missing Persons conference that she wanted to go anyway. Molly tells Logan she met someone else and tells Angela she can fund the trip.

Harrison walks into the house to see Dexter holding the knife he found in his room. He claims he only carried it for protection. He tells Harrison he heard Ethan’s side of the story and that it’s a lot different from his. Dexter tells Harrison he can tell him if it did it on purpose. Harrison storms out.

Zach drives up to Harrison’s house and tells him he’s right- they’re dicks - but he wants him to come to a party tonight where he is the guest of honor. Audrey asks Angela if she can go hang out with Harrison and the rest of the guys and she reluctantly agrees. “Welcome to the kill list party” Zach says. Everyone cheers for Harrison upon his entry.

Jim (Dexter) goes to the local bar. He chats with Tess, the bartender, about Harrison. She tells him it’s okay to ask for help and suggests a therapist for Harrison. Kurt walks into the bar and plays music on the jukebox. He asks Tess to dance with him.

Harrison talks to Audrey at the party about Molly Park’s podcast. Audrey admits that she was the one who released the Kill List. A girl walks up to Harrison and kisses him, offering him ecstasy. He takes it. A girl asks him to carve an H into her foot so she will always remember her hero. Harrison slices her foot and walks off when she says it hurts. He looks really drunk and drugged out as he wanders around the party. He takes another pill.

Audrey walks up to Harrison to see if he’s okay. She tells him to go get some water with her. He tells Audrey Jim (Dexter) thinks Harrison is a liar. He tells her his real name isn’t even Jim Lindsay and asks if she believes him. She says yes before he passes out. She runs to get her phone to call 911.

Sergeant Logan tells Harrison “Stay with me” and he opens his eyes. Logan asks Harrison a few questions. Logan finds out what Harrison took by asking Scott who gave him the pill, threatening to cuff him.

Jim (Dexter) runs to the hospital to see Harrison. Logan tells Jim what’s going on and tells him that Harrison could’ve died tonight if it weren’t for Audrey calling the police. Logan advises him to give Harrison some tough love but Jim tells him he’s no parenting expert.

Dexter tells Harrison he’s going to start seeing a therapist and the only place besides therapy he can go are school and home.

Chloe bangs on the door and screams “Sir!” She hears footsteps above and then sees the camera where the words “You’re already dead” are written.

Molly and Angela go to the Gramercy Suites in New York to confront Matt. Logan calls Angela to tell her about the party where Harrison OD’ed, where Audrey was present as well. Angela asks the front desk clerk for confirmation if Matt is a guest and he tells him Matt checked out the night before. She asks for video footage to confirm Matt was there and after some back and forth he agrees and tells her to come back later that night.

Dexter goes to see Dr. Patel for help for his goat and she tells him to grab some ketamine and whatever he needs. He also grabs some plastic tarps. He goes to a bar for a beer to track down Scott’s drug dealer, Miles O'Flynn. He asks for some drugs and Miles brings him outside to get them. Jim injects him with ketamine with a plan but when he hears a police car approaches he changes plans and beats up Miles screaming “stay away from my son!” Logan tells Jim to go to the station. He waits while he sees Logan walk in with Miles.

Logan interrogates Miles and tells him 18 people have died from ODs in town, presumably from pills that Miles sold. He threatens Miles for information and Miles tells him about a person named Jasper Hodge who makes the pills.

Chloe stares at the camera and takes her top off as Kurt watches. Over a loudspeaker, he tells her “Stop it, this is not what this is about”. Frustrated, he slams the computer closed. She pulls out a mirror shard from under her pillow after the camera shuts off.

Angela attends the Missing Persons conference with Molly where Angel Batista is speaking about finding connections between murders to solve cases.

Dexter parks outside of Jasper’s house. Deb tells Dexter to walk away and work on being a good dad. He doesn’t listen to Deb and breaks into the house with a syringe of ketamine in his hand. He finds the drug making station in the house. Dexter injects him with the ketamine.

Kurt opens the door for Chloe telling her she’s free to go - “it’s over”. She says “make me” and grabs the mirror shard. Kurt walks in and she slices his face. He grabs her and drags her outside. He tells her to run but she hesitates. She runs towards him and he shoots her eye. He screams “you ruined everything” before shooting her again. Kurt cries and bangs his head.

Angela introduces herself to Angel Batista and tells him about her missing women. Angela tells him her gut says it’s not a coincidence and tells him about Iris Broussard. He tells her to listen to her gut. Angel tells her this reminds him of another case - the Trinity Killer. He tells him a smart woman solved the case - Debra Morgan but that she passed along with her brother, who had a small child named Harrison.

Jasper wakes up in his attic where Dexter shows him photos of people who have died from the drugs he gave them. Dexter is about to stab him when he hears a car pull up- Logan’s. He still kills Jasper, just not in the way he wanted. Later on, when the police raid Jasper’s house, they find him there but dead from a drug overdose (forced by Dexter).

Kurt sees Harrison along the street and asks where he’s going. He offers to buy him a hot meal before he goes. Harrison asks what happened to his face (the cut from Chloe). Kurt and Harrison eat while Kurt gives some advice about dealing with rage. He hands Harrison a job application for the diner.

Angela sees the footage of Matt Caldwell at the hotel and sees a different person there instead. She’s confused about who the person is and why Kurt would lie. Angela goes home and hugs Audrey telling her she’s not mad. Audrey tells Angela what Harrison said before he passed out- that Jim’s name isn’t really Jim Lindsay.

Dexter gets home and Harrison is there waiting. Harrison tells him he’s going to lie down and shuts his door.

Angela sees something on her computer and is shocked. She prints out the obituary for Dexter Morgan.
