Family that slays together stays together - VIDEO:
The animated webisode series returns this summer. Illustrations by David Mack. Written by Scott Reynolds.
The year is 2000:
Dexter speaks in voice-over about prostitute killings being low-priority police matters over a montage of a bloody slashing/slayings. In his job with Miami Metro as Dexter Morgan, blood-spatter analyst, he finds opportunity to look more closely at the case for clues. He finds a pattern to the location of the homicides ('a star') and decides to attempt an intervention before the next one occurs.
Dexter voice-over: 'The family that slays together, stays together' followed by a long, regretful shot at a puzzled-looking teenage Debra.
'The father', Dexter intones as he determines 'who' is driving the son to kill.'
Oh, the symbolism! Dexter didn't see it as it pertains to his own family back then. Will he though, in the present time, now that Deb knows of his Dark Passenger begin to understand the many pieces that went into the puzzle of what made Dexter Morgan a serial killer? Will Dexter's own little family stay together and if so, how?

Published on Jul 9, 2012 by SHOWTIME (VIDEO):
The following (borderline erotic) teasers feature the “siblings” writhing around separately (and suggestively) on a black bed, while Dexter’s signature voiceover ponders what’s to come. Will Deb learn to accept his true identity (“I found a way to live with my secret, but I never had a choice… Does she?”)? Or will he have to take deadly drastic measures to protect himself (“The only thing worse than not knowing what she’ll do is not knowing what I’ll do.”)?
These two promo clips for season 8 Dexter are disturbing on several levels, including erotic. It was said that they were gonna deal with the 'Deb is in love with her brother' story more in season 8 so...there you go. Shouldn't complicate a hugely complicated situation at all. I'm sure.
On second thought, it could be wound up pretty quickly via the oft-used trope of 'let's just do this' and get it over with--and then the sexual tension will be gone. That could end a lot of ways but there's one big hurdle, Dexter's high moral code would probably prevent him from doing Deb--ever. She sees him sexually, she thinks. He has never thought of her 'that way.' Given the stuff that went down in the season 6 finale and that on his best day, Dex is not exactly 'studly,' I doubt that sexual activity of any kind witll be on his 'to-do' list.
Dexter returns for season 7 Sunday, September 30 at 9 PM ET/PT.
What Happens Next? (Dexter Spot) VIDEO:
Of the two new Dexter Spots, "My Dark Passenger" and 'What Happens Next?', 'What Happens Next'could be anthems for both Dexter and Deb in season 7 DEXTER as they take stock of What Happened and What Are they Going To Do (about it). Meanwhile, I'm assuming that as much as it ever was--on steroids(!) it will have to be 'business as usual' for the sibs at Miami Metro. It's not like crime is going to just stop now that the serial murderer's, murderer has been discovered by Deb to be her bro, Dexter. But bonus(!) Dex helped Deb solve a case she didn't even know she had!
It's going to be a crazy mother-effing season 7 of a final 8 so there is very little to lose by taking risks with the writing. I think the season that begins Sept 30 on Showtime may be getting more far out in some ways than ever before. Why not? It could be fun! Very fun! Finish DEXTER and go out balls to the wall...with a question mark...
Dexter returns Sunday, Sept. 30 at 9/8c on Showtime.
