Dexter meets with Miguel S3E7

Dexter meets with Miguel

The Mirage Cafe is a location in Season Three of the Showtime series DEXTER.

It’s a small Mediterranean restaurant with a bar where MIguel Prado apologizes to Dexter Morgan.

History[]

Miguel and Dexter had a falling-out because Miguel wanted to kill attorney Ellen Wolf and Dexter didn’t.

Summary[]

Miguel is standing in the cafe looking at his watch when Dexter walks through the door. Miguel directs Dexter's attention to the cafe's TV which is showing a news alert about killer Albert Chung.

Miguel: “Thanks for coming. You hear about Albert Chung?”
Dexter: “Who hasn't?”
Miguel: “You hear how they got him?”
Dexter: “No.”

They take seats at a tiny table.

Miguel: “He showed up at Ellen Wolf's office for a meeting. Cops got wind of it. Sent S.W.A.T. in. They did the whole shock-and-awe thing. Apparently Ellen Wolf was in on it. She helped get him into custody. You were right about her, Dex. I told you when we first met I usually don't take no for an answer.”
Dexter: “That's kind of a button with you, isn't it?”
Miguel: “It couldn't have been easy for you. But a good friend -- a real friend does the hard thing. I was out of control. Letting personal shit cloud up my thinking. You, you reigned me in. And, uh... well, friends fight, right?”
Dexter: “I guess so.”
Miguel: “They also apologize when they're wrong. I was wrong. I apologize.”
Dexter: [chuckling] “We're not gonna man-hug, are we?”
Miguel: [grinning] “How about a beer?”
Dexter: “Yeah, I'll get it.”
Dexter: [to bartender] “Two bottles.”

Am I really a good friend? Dexter wondered. Miguel thinks so. Rita. Camilla. I wouldn't know. I don't have a lot of experience in that area.

Miguel: [raising his bottle of beer] “To Ellen Wolf.”

Maybe with practice, Dexter thought.

Dexter: “Hey, you wanna be my best man?”

This pleasantly surprises Miguel. Dexter is convinced that Miguel has seen the light and remains his friend. However, that's what Miguel, a polished liar, wants him to think.
