The role of Dexter Morgan’s late sister Deb is going to be one of the most interesting parts of Dexter: New Blood. How can it not be? We’re talking about Dexter effectively swapping in Harry in his hate for Jennifer Carpenter’s character, one of the few characters who understood the breadth of what he’d gone through. Sure, she didn’t realize until later in the show’s that Dexter was a serial killer, but there was an emotional connection there.
So how will this relationship play out in the limited series revival? It does seem like there is a playfulness here, and a bond that is very different than what Dexter had with his dad.

One of the most important things to recall with Harry/Deb is that really, they are just manifestations of people within Dexter’s head. The Harry we saw was never the real one, but rather a nuanced take on what the title character thought of him. The same, more than likely, can be said of his sister. She may speak to him, but in a way that is how Dexter would want to remember her — as biting, sarcastic, and at times even playful. That’s what the photo above (which is technically from episode 2) could very well symbolize. Deb looks like someone who just threw a snowball Dexter’s way, not that this is physically possible. She could just taunting him.
How Dexter responds to some of these visions could be very-much important to controlling his sanity within this world. Is there a chance that they influence him on some level? Only time will tell…
