The Dexter final season trailer has been released from Showtime, and it does not look good for the Morgans.
If you’re like me and didn’t attack the seventh season until last week, then you may want to bow out now — there be spoilers ahead!
Anyone left at this point, you’ve either seen how last season ended, or you don’t mind that we blow it for you. Either way, let’s begin.
Dexter left off a few months ago following the jaw-dropping decision to kill off Maria LaGuerta (Lauren Velez). Okay, with the spot Dex (Michael C. Hall) was in, LaGuerta’s death wasn’t that surprising considering that we knew at the time the eight season would probably be the final run of episodes.
Still, choosing Debra Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter) as her killer was a shock. We figured Dexter would have done the deed himself, but his loyal sister didn’t give him the chance.
Picking up a few months after the shooting, the Dexter final season trailer shows that Deb is not okay with her decision, and she hates her brother for it.
In the three minutes presented here, Dexter’s murderous identity appears safe with LaGuerta gone, but as Deb’s brother, he looks a little desperate to help his sister overcome the events in the storage container.
Deb is working undercover, hooked on prescription meds, and getting into car accidents while under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
That’s when Miami’s favorite blood spatter analyst falls under the watchful eye of neuropsychiatrist Dr. Evelyn Vogel (screen veteran Charlotte Rampling). She appears to see through Dexter’s facade to the heart of the killer underneath.
(ENSTARZ has a little more on the Vogel character for those interested.)
How this will end up is anyone’s guess, but we’re thinking from the tone and feel — and the fact that a Deb Morgan spinoff is in talks — that Dexter doesn’t get out alive, and whatever sacrifice he makes will probably be for the good of his sister.
Are we crazy or what?
What did you think of the Dexter final season trailer — certain doom, a new beginning, or a little bit of both?
