Dexter Dissecting A Scene Video Shows The Making Of The Mighty Pen Scene

During last night's episode of Dexter, there was one scene in particular that seemed like it would have been fun to shoot, especially considering it was a fantasy. Spoiler alert, if you haven't seen last night's episode ("Buck the System") yet! Showtime released a video that shows us how special effects coordinator David Watkins put together Dexter's "special" moment with Masuka.

Remember when Dexter stabbed Masuka in the neck with a pen? Ok, it was a daydream, but for all intents and purposes in the series, it did happen. Not only was that a demonstration of just how wound up Dexter was, but it was also yet another demonstration of special effects coordinator David Watkins' bloody-hard work!

The "Dissecting a Scene" video below shows us what Watkins did to make the scene work...

"Just another day at the office!"

It's fun to get a behind-the-scenes look at how the fast and bloody scene was created. And we can enjoy it a little bit more knowing Masuka is safe and sound at Miami Metro. Read our full breakdown of last night's episode here and check out a preview from next Sunday's episode here.
