When Showtime released the first 5+ minutes of Dexter – Season 7 last month I was less than enthralled. An avid fan of the show since it began, I’ve been waiting for this – the moment when everyone’s favorite serial killer gets caught. But seeing/hearing Deb’s “turn and look away” reaction left me feeling cheated. It’s not that I really wanted or expected her to walk him straight to the gas chamber, but I hoped for a more appalling reaction to learning the gory truth (as if her season 6 admission of being in love with Dexter wasn’t gory enough). I honestly debated whether or not I would even bother watching the final 2 seasons of the show.
Flash forward to today. Showtime releases an official trailer for Dexter – Season 7 and *BAM* I’m totally back in! Those cheeky little monkeys had me fooled into thinking the writers had lost their twisted and psychotic sense of diabolical storytelling. This new trailer proves that they’ve upped their game, pulled out all the stops and are ready to get down to bloody business in season 7. We’re all in for a treat beginning on Sunday, September 30, when Dexter – Season 7 returns to the small screen. In the interim, check out the new trailer below and get prepared to watch Dexter further embrace his dark passenger this fall.
