Intel From Comic-Con 2012 Dexter Panel:
About that opening 2 minutes of season 7...
Q: Is Deb actually buying what Dexter is selling in first few minutes of Season 7?
A: “He hopes so… In that moment,” Michael C. Hall said with a laugh. Added Jennifer Carpenter, “She’s just taking one step at a time; she takes one step forward and is sent 10 back.”
Look for Season 7′s Deb to embrace her position of power a bit more than in previous years. “She actually needs [her authority] now. It’s the one card she has to play,” Carpenter teased. “At any second — if Deb lives after what you just saw [in the promo] — she could tell someone to put cuffs on him.” Long story short, “It’s like Dexter and Deb are just fish swimming [in opposite directions] for awhile.”
Carpenter might be alone in these sentiments, but she was not as taken aback by Deb’s seemingly sudden affections toward her “brother.”
“There was certainly a fascination that I thought Deb had with Dexter [early on], so it didn’t feel like it was so bizarre to play that last season.”
However, she added, “I think him stabbing somebody trumps those thoughts.”
As we saw in some earlier Dexter season 7 sneak peeks, James Remar’s Harry will appear in Season 7 — and in a major way.
“We’ll actually see original flashbacks from when Dexter was a child, and we’ll also continue to see him as Dexter’s subconscious.” via TVLine
