While he and his family are at the arcade, his son is captured. After Scott goes missing, Nick calls the police and puts out an Amber Alert for his son. Pretty soon their house is filled with volunteers and police desperately trying to find Scott, including Dexter Morgan. Eventually Dexter finds Scott, rescues him and Nick is reunited with his son. However, saving Scott Smith allows Trinity to escape from Dexter.
Later, Scott is seen by his son's side while he is being interviewed by Debra Morgan, where he recalls how his captor kidnapped and drugged him. His statement allows the police to identify Trinity as Arthur Mitchell.
