We have another sneak peek for Sunday night’s new episode of “Dexter,” and this one at least gives us a little bit more of an idea just how Yvonne Strahovski’s character of Hannah McKay is going to end up entering the world of the show … and really, it looks as though Deb is to blame.
In the video below, you can see Jennifer Carpenter’s character introduce us to a man known as Wayne Randall, who has been sitting behind bars for 15 years after committing a string of murders. What does he have to do with what is going on now? Basically, Deb is informing members of the precinct at a debriefing session that Randall wants to suddenly come clean about all of the unspeakable horrors and killings that he has done. Why? The detectives believe that he wants to get a reduced sentence, and the only way that he can do that is by helping out and sharing some information on some other cases.
Now, this is where we know things get a little bit interesting. Although she is not mentioned here by name, Hannah is the 15-year old girl that was traveling along with Randall while he was doing all of these killings. With that in mind, she is going to be re-entering the picture next week as someone who could give some more valuable insight on everything that happened in the past. However, there is still one important question here worth asking: was Randall killing these people alone? There are two interesting thoughts that cross our mind when it comes to this case, and both of them suggest that he was not possibly alone in the slightest with what he was doing:
1. Was Randall trying to help satisfy what may have been Hannah’s own dark passenger? It’s hard not to at least look at the possibility given that we are seeing so much of another interesting dynamic this season in Dexter and Deb.
2. It’s also hard for us to look at this case without also thinking about Karla Homolka, a Canadian woman who got off with an abbreviated prison sentence after saying that she was abused and tortured by her husband and partner-in-crime Paul Bernardo. It was later discovered after the fact that Homolka was more involved in the killings of multiple young women than she first led on, but there was nothing that prosecutors could do about it. Like with the show, Homolka was significantly younger than Bernardo; however, they were married and she was in her twenties at the time of the arrest.
Is it that sadistic that we are rooting for a female villain this season? Possibly, but it’s just so long since we’ve had one.
