Do you want to see precisely what “Dexter” has up its sleeve for the season 7 premiere September 30? While we already know that the episode is entitled “Are You…” and will pick up almost immediately where the last six ended — with Dexter’s sister Deb watching him plunge a knife straight into Travis Marshall’s heart.
So what’s going to happen the rest of the way? While it is not particularly revealing when it comes to plot spoilers, Showtime has released the following synopsis:
“After witnessing her brother kill Travis Marshall, Debra (Jennifer Carpenter) attempts to reconcile with Dexter (Michael C. Hall) while struggling to cover up their involvement with the murder. Meanwhile, Detective Mike Anderson has an unfortunate run-in, Quinn and Batista begin to make amends, and LaGuerta finds evidence that causes her to re-think the closed Bay Harbor Butcher case.”
Basically, most of this information consists of things that we already know — though it is still going to be interesting to see how Dexter copes with someone finding out his secret and someone else potentially learning about it (in LaGuerta) within an incredibly short amount of time. Some of the season’s major guest stars — including Yvonne Strahovski as Hannah McKay — are not going to show up until a few episodes later in the season. Really, we see this episode being more than anything simply about the Morgan siblings, and this seems to be the right way to handle it. Rather than rush into a new case or storyline elsewhere, why not try and explore what this dynamic is going to be like now?
What do you think about this synopsis, and do you think almost this entire episode should be focused on just Dexter and Deb? If you want to check out a full poster for this upcoming season, all you have to do is click the link here.
