In April we learned that Ray Stevenson has joined the season 7 cast of Dexter. Earlier this month we learned that Katia Winter also joined the cast of the forthcoming season of Dexter. Last month, we got our first look at the first promo video for the new season … and today we get to check out the first promo photo. You may recall that the promo video we saw didn’t really show us anything of substance … but this new promo image does. Dexter stands face to gun with … well, someone. Click below to find out who.
When we last left Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), his sister, Debra (Jennifer Carpenter), had finally discovered that Dex was a serial killer. So what happens next? Judging from this first still, it doesn’t seem as if Deb is too pleased. Picking up immediately where the finale left off, Season 7 will open with Debra’s horrified reaction to seeing her brother kill last season’s baddie, Travis. “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,” says executive producer Scott Buck. “She now has to deal with what she’s seen and what she knows. And it forces him to defend and define himself.” As for Deb’s newly uncovered “feelings” for her adopted brother, “It’s ironic that people are fine with Dexter jabbing people in the heart but mortified by this romance,” says Buck. “We’re not shying away from those feelings of hers, either.”
OH MY GAWD, I cannot WAIT for Dexter to return this Fall. I am really relieved to see that the new season will pick up where the last season left off. There is no denying, the final moments of season 6 are among the most important of the entire series thus far. I would’ve been very angry if producers decided to gloss over those final moments in order to fast forward the story into season 7. I can’t even being to imagine what the interaction will be between Dexter and Deb in the scene featured above but … oh man, it’s going to be good. The new season of Dexter will premiere on Showtime on September 30. I shall be counting down the seconds.
As for this photo, what do YOU think Deb is saying to Dex?
