Dexter (the show) does like to throw out these little red herrings, but hopefully the Skull Cutting Brain Melon Empathy Ball Killer isn't going to be a diminutive 67-year-old woman. She doesn't seem physically strong enough to perform such acts.
I would guess that she sees/fears/knows that the recent killing fits the profile of someone she has treated or profiled in the past, and hopefully she's genuinely interested in helping them catch that person. A little convenient, though, that she was also obviously involved in Harry's efforts to counsel young Dexter, with Harry's Code apparently being Evelyn's Code.
Kind of weird to see Matthews around again, but I guess he's still finishing off the time he needed in order to get his next bump in his pension, which he finagled out of LaGuerta last season.
