Well, Dexter isn't quite up to his eyeballs in blood, but he's pretty close. In fact, another inch or so and Dexter really will be seeing red. Michael C. Hall graces the cover of this week's Entertainment Weekly, which is featuring "Summer's Best TV," including the Showtime drama, in addition to Breaking Bad, The Bridge, Under the Dome, True Blood, and Netflix's upcoming new series Orange is the New Black.
Not only did EW offer us a look at most of Dexter's face on the cover of their magazine, but they also offered up a few spoilery tidbits about the new season. Consider that your warning! If you don't want to know anything about the upcoming eighth and final season of Dexter, read no further!
EW says Season 8 picks up six months after Deb killed LaGuerta. Since then, she quit Miami Metro. Maybe it was too hard for her to put on a badge after she murdered her boss. Understandable. EW says she now works for a private eye (Sean Patrick Flanery) and has been spurning Dexter's attempts to patch things up. Those spoilers are kind of mild compared to this next one, so brace yourselves. You know the new character Dr. Evelyn Vogel, played by Charlotte Rampling? Well, not only is she a psychiatrist who assists law enforcement agencies in profiling criminals - we knew that already - she also helped Harry write the Code. Yes, Dexter's code - the one Dexter uses to determine who's suitable to kill. That's kind of huge. She's being stalked by a serial killer, which leads her to seek Dexter's help. That is very interesting, not only in terms of the season, but in the scope of the whole series, which is coming to an end. In absence of actual-Harry, Vogel could be the character that brings Dexter's whole story full circle in some way.
There's also a new serial killer on the loose cutting open people's brains. Gross. Dexter returns Sunday, June 30 on Showtime.
EW promises more details on Dexter in this week's issue, which hits stands Friday, June 7. In the meantime, you can view the other cover inserts over at EW.com The Breaking Bad one is particularly intriguing. Creepy skull. Walt's eyes are closed and he's holding a book. Some Walt Whitman poetry perhaps?
