dexter deb season 5 Dexter Season 7 Details Revealed

On Deb’s love-affair with Dexter:

Honestly, it’s something we’ve been talking about since Season 2 because it seemed to explain so much about the character of Debra Morgan, that she always seemed like she was so in love with her brother. It’s something we always talked about [and] dismissed, and then this season we finally dealt with it.

On how knowing Dexter will end in season 8 is impacting their development of the series:

We have the benefit of knowing that we have two seasons left, so we can start to really take the character of Dexter where we’re going to want to end him in the finale. We no longer have to think of holding things in place and not giving things away because we can start to turn in some of those cards at this point. Obviously the biggest thing we set up is Deb has now seen him kill someone. What does this mean? How will it affect Dexter? What is he going to do with this? And she thinks she’s in love with him? Is she going to tell Dexter? And if so, how is Dexter going to possibly respond to that? These are a number of things that will be set up for next season, but we’ll deal with them as they come.

On whether or not Dexter needs to die in the series finale:

I do not know. What I thought about Dexter when I came into this show has certainly changed from what I think of him now, because the character has changed. At one point I may have thought that, but I’m not sure now because there’s so many different things you can do with this person. A lot of people would certainly think he needs to die.

Whether or not you’re a fan of Deb finding out Dexter’s secret, you have to admit that the logic Buck presented towards the situation isn’t as fantastical as one would have expected. In fact, it’s actually pretty reasonable.

For the viewer, seeing Deb in the final moments of Dexter killing DDK feels like everything has been revealed. But for Deb, she’s only seeing her brother kill an extremely bad person – a person that actually tried to kill her recently. Not exactly out the realm of brotherly duties.

With only two seasons left before Dexter comes to an end, it’ll be interesting to see the direction to take the character. The knowledge of having an end date in sight has been known to help kick-up the level of creativity the producers bring to the series. Lost would be a perfect example of this.

Now that nothing is off the table, one could guess what will happen next, and who will actually make it to the end of the series alive.

  1. Deb had three options. She could do nothing. Most people think she had a choice. Now between Dexter and Laguerta, which mess is easier to clean up?

  2. em a regular watcher of Dexter and love the series. I decided to write a book on a serial killer in positive role, Dexter just depicts that. Very happy to see a series in very similar line.

    You know, all talk about Dexter to die end of series8…I would say Dexter is icon for justice and expectation is that the justice continues. One option is Dexter dies and someone takes the role from Dexter probably Deb to become more strong especially after the kill of Laguerta. This could be a strong closer with Deb becoming strong and Dexter cleans up the way for Deb. But the flip side is starting Dexter again with a new beginning with Dexter as title would defeat the purpose though Harrison is an option but it wouldn’t be as effective as Dexter.
    Next obvious option left is Dexter lives & Deb dies taking the responsibility being associated with Ice Truck Killer and justice continues which also opens a window of opportunity for future series of Dexter, if any. Which I feel would be a right options as Dexter lives with (3kids)family.

    Had many ideas floating for the continuation of Dexter but sad to hear that Dexter series8 would be the last series. Either case, good luck to the makers of Dexter. NJOYED IT!!!

    • For someone who wants to write a novel about a serial killer, I sure hope you find a quality editor that will be able to decipher your attempt at English!

      Sounds to me like you just have an idea for how the series, “Dexter” should play out and decided to become a self-proclaimed novelist in hopes one of the series’ writers would take notice.

      Also, please come up with something a little bit more original. Deb takes over Dexter’s role as the killer. Seriously? Wow! I just sh*t myself based on the shock factor alone! Honestly, just forget about it and leave the writing to the pros! Cheers! :)

      • Thanks for your very insightful suggestion for Editor. Definitely suggested Deb as an option but in the very next line, I did mention that it would be bad option and suggested a second and more suitable one. I feel what is more important is to understand English before start looking to be a writer or novelist. I guess you are miserable in every manner :) Just couldn’t stop laughing while reading your comment. You tried your best to crack a joke but proved yourself a big Joker. Lets take one on one on English then the doubts will get cleared automatically. It seems to me that you are arrogant and hypocrite by nature, try to change yourself else you will loose everyone around you, cheers :)

  3. I think that Dexter is taking “revenge” on these bad people for all of us. That’s what makes him appealing. What it is doing to his soul is anybody’s guess. He is looking more “human” all the time! I do not believe he is a psychopath or sociopath. but rather a man on a mission, mainly because of his extremely painful childhood and how his dad helped him deal with it. His dad guided him into killing only “bad” people after all according to a code. Has he always been faithful to the code? Possibly not when you see him struggling with the police lady, but remember it is Debra who shot her!!!
