Alright class, repeat after me:Â this is the final season of Dexter.Â Showtime has confirmed, once again, that season eight is the final season, but they also rolled out an awesome new clip so we can forgive them for thinking we all have dementia.
In the clip, Dexter (MIchael C. Hall) goes in search of Deb, and he finds her in a mental state unlike any he’s ever seen her in before.Â If there is any question that this season will confront Dexter with the need to either kill of Deb or run, this clip should should take care of that:
Wow.Â First of all, a stunning bit of acting from Jennifer Carpenter.Â Â Over the course of Dexter, and her career in general, we’ve seen her go some pretty dark places but here we see Deb not only in shambles, but literally disintegrating from the weight of all the ugly truth she is carrying around.Â It makes for a surprisingly stark contrast to Dexter, whose own moral dumpster would have exploded a long time ago, if he’d had one.
You have to chuckle at the fact that they are having their conversation in the cereal aisle.Â Cereal killer?Â Seriously Dexter producers?
