Showtime’s bloodiest show is back for one more season on June 30! Get an early peek at the all the crazy drama that awaits Dexter this season with these five scoops.
After all these years, Dexter is coming to an end, but not before one more thrilling season. When we last left our favorite serial killer who only kills serial killers, the walls were closing in like never before, with his family and Miami Metro growing more and more suspicious that the boring blood analyst guy was something much more. After getting a sneak preview at season eight, we can assure you that the tension will be higher than ever, and that Dexter lovers will have these five spoilers to look forward to in the season premiere.
‘Dexter’ Season Premiere: 5 Spoilers
1. LaGuerta’s Death Will Not Be Overlooked
If you remember, Debra Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter) had to choose whether to shoot her brother Dexter (Michael C. Hall) or Lt. Maria LaGuerta (Lauren Velez). Deb kept it all in the family, shooting down the latter. And while Dexter masterfully covered his and his sister’s tracks, don’t think they’re out of the woods. One character in particular, who had an intimate relationship with the lieutenant, isn’t quite ready to let LaGuerta’s death go.
2. Deb Dabbles With Drugs
The aforementioned murder has really sent Deb to a dark place. Like a snort-a-lot-of-cocaine kind of place. If you’ve spent the last seven seasons annoyed at Deb for being so darn straight-laced, then you’re in luck! The old Debra Morgan is long gone.
3. Dexter Faces Off With A Brit
Almost every season there’s a character who shows up in Miami who’s a huge threat to Dex — Doakes, Lundy, Miguel Prado. Enter Dr. Evelyn Vogel, a genius psychiatrist who is described as a sort of “serial killer whisperer.” Will Dexter be able to tip-toe around her, or is he going to have to put her on his operating table?
Dexter has featured a guy who bleeds his victims out in an ice truck, one who skins his victims, and one who killed in a specific series of three. So yeah, we’ve seen some gruesome deaths before, but season eight’s big bad guy might be the creepiest. Mostly because this killer cuts open his victims’ heads and messes around with the insides. Just another day in the life of Dexter!
5. Sex On The Miami Beach
With Debra busy off snorting cocaine, her ex-fiance Joey Quinn (Desmond Harrington) has a ton of time on his hands. And if you know Joey, you know how he’s going to use his free time. But you’ll be shocked to find out who he’s spending it with!
