Dexter Season 7 And Homeland Season 2 Teasers Hint At What's Ahead With Flashbacks
Come September 30, Showtimes will resume thoroughly fraking with our minds as the pay-cable network brings Homeland and Dexter back on the same night. Showtime released new teasers for both series, neither of which offer anything seriously spoilery, but both of which do their job in reminding us of the stories and character developments that await.
For Dexter (and stop reading here if you haven't gotten caught up on Season 6!), the big question is: How will Deb deal with knowing what Dexter is? Earlier this month, we got a sneak peek at the Season 7 premiere, which showed Dexter awkwardly fumbling through his attempt at an explanation for why he had Travis strapped down on a table just before he stabbed him in the chest. That video shows us much more in terms of what's actually going to happen, but this teaser actually raises some really interesting ideas about just what this revelation really means.
In the sneak peek video, Deb is still in shock over what she's seen, but looking at the video above, which flashes back to the Bay Harbor Butcher days, and Deb nearly coming face-to-face with killer-Dexter in Season 5, there's a lot that's probably going to dawn on her once she has time to really think about what it means for her brother to be a serial killer, assuming she inevitably gets to the full truth of the situation. There are seasons worth of stories that she'll have to remember in a totally new context once she understands how things really went. In short, Season 7 has the potential to be mind-blowing.
And speaking of mind-blowing, Showtime's teaser for Season 2 of Homeland takes us into the anxious and cluttered mind of Claire Danes' Carrie Mathison, flashing back with audio and visuals of the first season to remind us how the intense momentum and where things left off (with Carrie on the table about to begin electroshock therapy).
Dexter Season 7 returns September 30th at 9:00 p.m. Homeland Season 2 premieres immediately after (10:00 p.m. ET/PT).
