Dexter Season 7 Teaser: My Dark Passenger Exposed

The last teaser released for Dexter packed a pile of glimpses of the approaching seventh season into a very quick video, which required a lot of pausing to get the goods (see some of the juicy screenshots here). The latest teaser offers far few potential spoilers, but it does hint at something very unsettling. Spoilers if you aren't caught up through Season 6!

Last season left off with Deb discovering that her brother is a serial killer. Dexter's worst nightmare? There may be a worse one. Check out the teaser below, which hints at what Dexter fears more than his sister's discovery…

"It's my worst nightmare. Uncontrollable. Inescapable. My dark passenger exposed to the one person I've always thought I could protect from it. The only thing worse than not knowing what she'll do is not knowing what I'll do."

We've been so caught up in speculating over how Deb will react to learning what Dexter is, but has anyone considered how Dexter might react? I suppose I've sort of decided that Dexter would never hurt Deb. Not even if it meant protecting himself and his secret. If I'm remembering correctly, he couldn't kill Doakes when push came to shove, so I would be very surprised if he was a threat to Deb. Still, it's interesting to know he's afraid of it. So much of what makes Dexter such a fascinating series is the emphasis on how his mind works. In this case, it sounds like he doesn't trust himself to handle the situation.

Dexter returns Sunday, September 30 at 9:00 p.m. on Showtime.
