Showtime has just released two new promo videos in anticipation of the upcoming seventh season of its hit show Dexter.
In the videos, we see clips of both Dexter (Michael C. Hall) and Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) tossing and turning under the covers as Dex, in voice-over, talks about his worst fears.
“It’s my worst nightmare. Uncontrollable. Inescapable,” Dexter narrates in one of the promo clips. “My dark passenger exposed to the one person I’ve always thought I could protect from it. The only thing worse than not knowing what she’ll do is not knowing what I’ll do.”
In the other, Dexter poses the thought:
“I’ve found a way to live with my secret, but I never had a choice. Does she?”
Though similar, each new promotional clip ends in a unique fashion, highlighting either Dexter or Debra as they ponder over what the other might do with the shocking reveal at the end of season 6, wherein Deb sought her adopted brother out to confess her romantic feelings and instead found him plunging a knife into the Doomsday Killer.
Executive producer Scott Buck recently teased what audience could expect from the upcoming airing, saying,
“Viewers might think we shy away from that moment of Debra walking in and seeing Dexter stabbing into Travis’ chest, but it’s just the opposite. She now has to deal with what she’s seen and what she knows. And it forces him to defend and define himself.”
Dexter returns to Showtime on Sunday, September 30 at 9/8c.
