In the world of “Dexter,” just about everything is a mystery — including the episode names. There is almost always a connection to the story in some way — and in the case of the season premiere, it may even be a line said by one of the characters.
While we have for you the first batch of titles for your speculating pleasure below, remember that these sort of things can change later on depending on post-production or other factors depending on the season progresses. These are just tentative — and don’t worry, we are not going to give any major plot details away, as we love some things to still remain a surprise. (The following titles were unearthed by SpoilerTV.)
Stay tuned — we’re going to have more on the upcoming season as September 30 draws ever closer.
7.01 – “Are You…”
7.02 – “The Shadow Knows”
7.03 – “Buck the System”
7.04 – “Run”
7.05 – “Swim Deep”
Intriguing? We’re the most interested at the moment in the final two, mostly since they allude to some sort of escape. Is Dexter going to be even more at risk of spending his life behind bars now that Deb knows his secret? It’s certainly possible, primarily since she may not even know immediately upon seeing him killing Travis Marshall just what she feels about it.
These titles constitute nearly half of season 7, which could feasibly be the penultimate one of the show considering the length of Michael C. Hall’s contract. By the time this wraps up, hopefully we will have a greater sense of what Dexter’s life will be like now that someone close to him knows who he really is — and just what the endgame for everyone on this show could be.
What do you think about some of these titles?
