Titles are a-changin’ when it comes to the seventh season of “Dexter.” Only a matter of days after we first learned that the Showtime series has changed the title of the second episode of season 7 from “The Shadow Knows” to “Sunshine and Frosty Swirl” (which may take the cake for one of the strangest titles we have ever heard), we now have some more news when it comes to the tenth episode of the season changing its name, as well.
Originally, it was reported that this episode was going to be called “Because I Want To,” but now thanks to a new Instagram post for one of the show’s writers, we are now looking at instead an hour known as “The Dark … Whatever.” Is this possibly Deb’s interpretation for the Dark Passenger, or the show just sort of making reference to the fact that darkness has been used so much in their titles that they have run out of possible nouns? We’re not entirely sure, but this is certain to be an exciting hour of television as we near the end of what is likely going to be the penultimate season.
At this point in the season, we are also assuming that most of the show’s guest stars are going to be around in full force, especially Ray Stevenson and Yvonne Strahovski. We are expecting one of them to potentially be the big bad of the season, though with everything happening in Dexter’s live at the moment it is possible that we are looking at a situation similar to season 2 (where he himself was really the villain).
What do you think about this title, and in some ways do you think it is almost poking fun at some of the other ominous titles that the series has come up with in the past?
