Thus far this season, DEXTER has felt reenergized and this week's episode (7.03, "Buck The System") continues with the same great feeling that the show is fired up on all cylinders and burning brightly.
As a long-time Dexter fan, I'm thrilled with the powerhouse performances of Jennifer Carpenter as the now severely distressed Debra alongside the quiet intensity of Michael C. Hall in the title role as serial killer Dexter. In addition, the supporting cast seems to have caught hold of the same energy boost as they each seem to have found their groove for season 7.
The guest stars are intriguing and/or truly menacing and with the addition this week of the lovely Yvonne Strahovski as 'Hannah McKay' and in episodes to come (scroll down for synopses of upcoming episodes that give us some idea of where she'll fit in the the over-arching storyline), it appears the pieces are in place for a memorable season 7!
Synopsis DEXTER SEASON 7 – “Buck The System” - Episode 7.03:
Dexter tries to bring Debra on-board with his new target, while the Ukrainian mob seeks revenge for the killing of one of their own. Quinn grows close to a dancer at the mob’s strip club, and LaGuerta attempts to enlist Batista to help her with re-opening the case of the Bay Harbor Butcher, who she believes is still out there. Written by Jace Richdale, Directed by Stefan Schwartz (Credit: Showtime)
