Dexter’s Ending

Dexter put Debra’s lifeless body in the water on Dexter Season 8 Episode 12

In Dexter season 8 finale, we learn of Debra’s prognosis turn to the worst as she suffered a stroke and is in a vegetative state. Dexter has the heat on his back and has apparently resolved all of his loose strings by leaving his son, Harrison, with his girlfriend, Hannah. He smuggled Debra’s defunct body out of the hospital and onto his boat. He drove her out to sea where he’d dropped so many bodies from which he killed. His sister’s death was a mercy killing- he’d never killed someone who didn’t deserve it…

Dexter on Dexter Season 8 Finale

Then we see his boat destroyed by a hurricane and him stuck in the ocean without a boat. We presumed he was dead until he appeared in a small snowy town. It seems this sets the stage for the new series as fans were not happy with this ending. It left way too many questions, and honestly, it seemed fitting for Dexter to meet his demise back then…

Dexter: New Blood Plot

The original eight-season run of Dexter premiered in the fall of 2006. More than 15 years later Showtime is ready to air a 10 episode limited series.

10 years after Dexter went missing in the eye of Hurricane Laura, he is living under an assumed name in the small town of Iron Lake, New York. Dexter may be embracing his new life, but in the wake of unexpected events in this close-knit community, his Dark Passenger beckons.

Dexter managed to have a normal life in the new town of Iron Lake- something he could never afford as a blood spatter analysis with the Miami Metro PD. The serial killers’ killer cannot resist his “Dark Passenger” reemerging as he learns what Randall has done.

It is my speculation that Debra is not alive but only exists in Dexter’s head as the voice of reason. Harry, his adoptive father, used to be Dexter’s moral compass speaking to him in delusional trances. Harry is the one who taught him how to hide and control his dark demons. My theory will be that Harry is no more. Alternatively, the evil side in Dexter will prevail with The Trinity Killer. Similar to the good and bad angel thematics- my summation is that this is who Morgan will wrestle with inside his head. Good vs evil…

The Dark Passenger is evolving. What are you hoping to see in #Dexter: New Blood? 👇
