Dexter Season 7 Episode 1 Joe Bob gets a call from Dragon, the ringleader, and steps out of the room, while Hoyt says he doesn’t know how he’s ever going to forgive himself for falling in love with Jessica. The other guys, Ray and Tyrese, tell him she probably just hypnotized him into loving her. Ray: “Do you hate Jessica Hamby?” Hoyt: “I do.” Ray and Tyrese: “Then we’re here to hate her with you.” Joe Bob comes in and tells them that Junior is dead, and they’ve got a job to do. They hand Hoyt an Obama mask.
At the hospital, visiting hours are over, and the nurse is kicking Sam out of Luna’s room. But Sam picks up a scent and starts following an orderly, who turns out to be Joe Bob. He tackles Joe Bob to the ground and commences the beating. accepts werewolf Rikki (Kelly Overton) as his second in his quest to become packmaster of the Shreveport-area pack.
Dexter Season 7 Episode 1 In the werepack’s barn, Alcide, a bandanna rather incongruously tied around his head, is training with Rikki, the she-wolf who agreed to be his second in his challenge of J.D. But Alcide seems to be more interested in getting into Rikki’s pants. She wriggles out from underneath him and shows off some neat moves. Alcide warns her that because J.D. has been juicing, it’s quite possible they’re going to lose. She suggests leveling the playing field by getting their hands on some V, but Alcide refuses: “It’s not just a drug. It’s like swallowing death. You take it and you’re dead inside.” Rikki: “So is it even worth training?” Alcide: Dexter Season 7 Episode 1 “Probably not.” And they start kissing.
Unfortunately, Martha walks in on them. There’s nothing like a woman who sounds like Harvey Fierstein channeling Blanche Dubois to put a damper on romance. She tells Alcide that she talked to J.D. about Alcide’s allegations about the V. “He swore on my son’s grave it wasn’t true.” Alcide: “Respectfully, Martha, your son doesn’t have a grave because y’all ate him.” Martha: “Don’t get literal on me, Rambo.” I love the zingers in this episode.
Dexter Season 7 Episode 1 Martha says that J.D. was next in line to be packmaster after Martha’s husband died, but he stepped aside so he could be a father figure to Marcus. (That worked out well.) It’s J.D.’s turn to be packmaster, Martha tells him, and she refuses to believe he’s on V.
Later, J.D. has gathered up a number of pack members in a corner of the barn, and he tells them that one of his vampire friends told him that there’s a war brewing between vamps and humans, and they’d better be on the vamp side. He produces some vials of V and offers them around, just as Emma pokes her Dexter Season 7 Episode 1 head around the corner. J.D. offers some to Emma: “You take this, you’ll grow up to be big and strong like me.” And not too far behind Emma is Martha. She’s horrified. J.D. tries to explain, but she shuns him: “I don’t know you no more.”
