'A mysterious woman comes to work with Miami Metro, offering first-hand information on Dexter’s past.'
We are rapidly approaching the season 8 premiere of Dexter, which will also bring us the series' conclusion. Since this is such a crucial part of the entire series, I'm laying out now how I will share information about Dexter episodes before they air.
In writing about Dexter I've done my best to separate true spoilers from the 'in-case-you-are-behind-on-your-viewing 'spoilers.' Forever A Fangirl's policy is, if the episode has been broadcast or in some way made legally available for the public to view, then anything said about it is not a spoiler.
Put simply, spoilers happen before the episode is broadcast. Just the same, since there's just not enough room to explain the nuances of a sorta-spoiler, a small spoiler and a SPOILER in my blog post titles, I'm using the word 'spoiler' whenever I have intel on an episode or character or story arc that has not aired.
That said, any inside information that I may have picked up prior to a Dexter epsiode being broadcast I will share--up to a point. Otherwise, why bother watching? Perhaps 'tease' is a better word, as if you are determined enough you may glean from the tease enough info to put two and two together. OK? Okay.
Showtime issued a press release today which you can scroll down to read. Though it is cool to know that the story picks up six months after Deb murdered Maria Laguerta, I'm going to hone in on the enticing mention of this character:
First up is Dr. Evelyn Vogel, a formidable and whip smart neuro-psychiatrist in her late 50s who assists the law in profiling criminals.
This is what Showtime said about her today:
Previously, Showtime described her thusly: "a neuro-psychiatrist who specializes in working with young psychopaths and profiling criminals in unorthodox ways" (my italics).
'a mysterious woman comes to work with Miami Metro, offering first-hand information on Dexter’s past.'
British acting veteran Charlotte Rampling is joining Dexter (I believe her part is considered 'recurring') as Dr. Evelyn Vogel. Here she is pictured at work:
I don't know about you, but I'd say what Dr. Vogel is doing in this screenshot is pretty 'unorthodox'.
Can't wait to find out how she impacts Dexter's life!
