Dexter: New Blood season 1: Matt Caldwell is Dexter Morgan’s latest kill

Dexter: New Blood season 1

The premiere of Dexter: New Blood season 1 arrived this weekend on Showtime, and it delivered everything we wanted and then some.

From start to finish, the premiere was a nostalgia trip of the best kind — there was nostalgia for sure, but also a lot that was brand new. Take, for example, the setting of Iron Lake, New York, or the assumed name that Dexter Morgan was living under. He tried his best to start over there and for a good while, it worked. That is, before he learned the truth about Matt Caldwell.

The biggest “mistake” that Dexter made in the premiere was not one of his own doing. Instead, it was him being told by Matt’s friend Bill the truth about what happened with the boat accident. Matt was actually responsible for killing five people and faced zero consequences for it. Because of that, Dexter sprung into action despite his conscience a.k.a. Deb’s warnings and also not having killed in ten years.

What happened to the buck was heartbreaking; that almost represented Dexter’s innocence in a weird, touching way. The moment that the buck was shot dead, everything changed. The switch flipped back. He’s going to now have to cover up Matt’s murder and from this point on, life in Iron Lake will never be the same. That’s of course without even mentioning Harrison, Dexter’s son who is back on the scene.

If the rest of Dexter: New Blood turns out like this, we have a feeling we are in for a treat.
