The last scene of last season’s Dexter was such a shocker that I thought maybe Showtime was going to have that be the end. But here we are talking about Dexter again. The new season starts in late September and appears to pick right where they left off. Will Dexter finally get what’s coming to him? Or will he continue to deal out vigilante justice while being a single Dad?
The normal formula is that Dexter runs across another serial killer and somehow becomes involved with him, as brother, mentor, or student. I think Harrison is a little young to take up the family trade, but who knows? Baby serial killer? Maggie did try to kill Mr Burns, you know.
Dexter is a great show and Season 5 looks to as good as all the rest. Julia Stiles will guest star in 10 episodes as a new woman in Dexter’s life. Shawn Hatosy will appear in a multiple episode arc as a “bad guy”. Maria Doyle Kennedy will also join the cast of Dexter in Season 5 as an Irish nanny. April Lee Hernandez has been called for a recurring role as a police officer. Jonny Lee Miller has been added to the cast, and will have something to do with Julia Stiles’ character. Also Peter Weller will join the cast and he will be playing “a troubled Miami Metro police officer who gets caught up in an internal affairs investigation.”
So Dexter carries on as best as he can. I look forward to seeing how he handles it all.
