Get a sneak peek look at season 7 of Dexter.
Though Dexter is going into it's seventh season, I think it quite likely that the most exciting part of the series lies ahead.
Dexter, at it's core, is a story of a serial killer and his big secret, the 'Dark Passenger' who compels him to kill. Having to carry this secret alone has led to a pretty isolated life for Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall). Without his sister Debra (Jennifer Carpenter), there's a good chance Dexter's life would have been even more dysfunctional: he may have never married or had a child, which though they did not dampen his need to feed his Dark Passenger, did in fact open Dexter up to being able to love.
In season 1, Dexter declared that he did not really understand what it meant to love someone, believing he could not do so but 'if he could,' that person would be his sister, Deb.
It turned out that he loved both his now-dead wife, Rita and his biological son, Harrison as well as Deb. However, with Debra now literally witnessing Dexter feeding his Dark Passenger by plunging a knife through serial killer Travis's heart, there has been created as actor James Remar ('Harry') puts it, 'a tectonic shift' in Dexter's world.
This is indeed the end of 'Dexter's secret belonging to him'.
The biggest question to be answered is what now lies ahead? My guess is more--much more-- shifting.
Dexter returns Sunday, Sept. 30 at 9/8c on Showtime.
