Make way for the best Dexter Season 7 trailer yet! But consider yourself spoiler warned. Previous trailers have given us snippets to chew on while we count down to September, but this one offers a much more detailed look at what's ahead, and how Dexter's going to be dealing with that little snag he hit at the end of Season 6.
When we saw the sneak peek at the Season 7 premiere of Dexter, the clip left off with Deb about to call the precinct after seeing Dexter kill Travis. The trailer below takes it a bit further, giving us an idea of what she ultimately decides to do, and some of the (presumably) immediate consequences of her decision.
It seems like Deb's giving Dexter the benefit of the doubt, and that's not a huge surprise. Her feelings for him are as strong as they've ever been, and though it contradicts her nature as a cop, I couldn't imagine Season 7 beginning with Dexter hauled off in handcuffs and about to be investigated for a very ritualistic-looking murder in a church.
And LaGuerta found a blood slide on the crime scene, which will apparently lead her to look at the Bay Harbor Butcher case. That goes all the way back to the earlier seasons, when Dexter came close to being caught. The BHB case was eventually pinned on Doakes, who died and therefore never had the chance to clear his name. Good for Dexter, not so good for Doakes or his friends/family, who had to go on believing he was a serial killer. I always thought that seemed unresolved. Doakes wasn't a likable guy, but he was a good cop with good instincts (he recognized the darkness in Dexter when no one else did.) This plot-point was hinted at by executive producer Sara Colleton back in June, so it's not a huge reveal, but it's definitely exciting to see a glimpse of that upcoming story arc.
And we also got a glimpse of creepy Louis, who seems to be a whole other set of problems for Dexter. Exciting stuff!
Dexter Season 7 premieres September 30 on Showtime.
