Though for the past six seasons we've loyally watched 'DEXTER,' a stellar Showtime offering about a serial killer who only kills 'bad people,' we all knew that we were also tuning in to see the 'Dexter and Deb' show. The adopted children of Harry Morgan behaved as blood siblings, closer it seemed at times, despite Dexter's horrific secret with his serial killer dual life always just barely out of Deb's sight-line.
Dexter (Michael C. Hall) pondered again and again how Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) might react were she ever to discover what her big brother was doing during his many seemingly off-the face-of-the-earth disappearances and then just as suddenly, his dropping back into their lives as if he'd never stepped out.
But as the audience has known all along, Dex was duping Deb. Finally, we saw in the season 6 cliff-hangar finale, Deb has now literally caught Dexter red-handed committing a murder. Where will they go from here? Is there any 'going' anywhere from here? Debra has, over the years, expressed frustration to both Dexter and her therapist that as much as she loves and leans on Dexter, she's not sure that he feels the same towards her, that perhaps (to paraphrase) he's keeping part of himself closed off, inaccessible to her which really pains her. Now they are at the rip-the-lid-off-the-box-of-secrets-Dexter's-harbouring-moment. All of it is hers to know. Will she, though, want to face this horrible reality? Dexter's up for it--up for anything, one would think, to bring Deb back down to the new reality. But what will all this entail--how will it even be possible with both of them headed into the lion's den (Miami Metro) each day bearing this huge reveal? Stay tuned, starting September 30th on Showtime!
Truth Brings Light (Dexter & Deb Spot) VIDEO:
The first (real) teaser for the seventh season of Dexter asked whether Debra will accept Dex following her grim discovery, but this first poster for the upcoming season focuses squarely on the serial killer. Originally posted: http://seriable.com/dexter-first-season-7-poster
Showtime has unveiled a great new spot for the upcoming seventh season of Dexter, centering on theme of truth and acceptance in the wake of last season’s dramatic cliffhanger. The new spot features images of Dexter and Debra reflecting the different shades that comprise their relationship and Dexter’s acceptance of who he is.
Dexter narrates the piece.
Dex: “They say truth brings light. It’s the lies that live in darkness. But here we are, in the moment of truth.
He continues: “Everything in my life has brought me to this point. It’s what I am. It’s all I am. I can accept that. ..But can she?
Since Dexter is currently shooting season 7, there's every reason to expect more goodies-sharing (please and thank you).
