Showtime has blessed us with an extended preview of Dexter season 7 that gives us the first really well defined look at the new Dexter (Michael C. Hall) and Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) dynamic. If you had any thoughts that Deb’s bro-crush was going to lead her to willingly cover up his activities, man were you wrong. It’s plain that Deb is basically heading to a breakdown, and the situation will simply get worse and worse as the season goes on.
One of the most compelling plot points is the discovery of one of Dexter‘s blood slides at the burnt out church. This could indicate that Dexter is revealed as the Bay Harbor Butcher very early on. I kind of love that because it says that the Dexter writers are not afraid to have Deb dealing with the Dark Passenger from the very beginning. No B.S. Dexter excuse is going to hold up for long, Deb will spend a significant amount of time this season knowing that her brother didn’t just ‘snap’ as he claims, he is a serial killer.
NEW YORK – August 16, 2012 – Season six of DEXTER concluded last fall with one of the series’ most shocking moments – Dexter got caught by none other than his sister Deb. As season seven kicks off on Sunday, September 30th at 9 p.m. ET/PT, DEXTER’s devoted fan base wonders – what will he do, and what will she do?
