SPOILER ALERT: If you’re new to Dexter and haven’t yet made your way to the end of Season 6, skip this post.

I don’t watch a lot of TV, but one show I do watch like an addict watches for his dealer is Dexter — the ongoing story of a police blood spatter analyst who moonlights as a serial killer (or vice versa). For six seasons I’ve been glued to it, caught up in every twist, turn, and cliffhanger. And speaking of cliffhangers, Season 6 ended with a real doozie, as Dexter’s police-detective sister Deb enters the church that Dexter has outfitted as a kill room just in time to see him plunge a knife into the demented Travis Marshall.

This is obviously going to mark a dramatic turn in everything about the show and its central characters. Dexter’s success, against all odds, in passing as “normal” is over. He can’t possibly think his way out of this mind-blowing revelation. Or can he? That’s what Dexter addicts like me will find out when Season 7 begins on September 30.

Yesterday, Showtime started streaming a trailer for Season 7 that got my blood racing — a montage of eye-popping scenes that hint at awesome things to come (and of course raise far more questions than answers). And in one last bit of coolness, the music of “Change (In the House of Flies)” by Deftones can be heard at the end. Watch it after the jump. Any other Dexter addicts in the audience?

  1. Fuck yes! Me & my GF just finished watching S6, so the cliffhanger is fresh in mind. We’re stoked for the new season.

  2. Yep, love it. Great show.

  3. One of my favorite shows ever, can’t wait..

  4. Somehow, each season felt more boring than the last. One thought it’s probably because of having watched the whole series, and having become tired of it.
    But, watching the reruns now, one noticed that the difference in style between season 1 and season 6. Thinking back, season 3 and onwards was like getting up to go to college in the morning – sometimes you want to, sometimes you do not. [It turns out that one of the executive producers, Daniel Cerone, left after season 2. Well…]

    Of course, one shall continue to watch Dexter until the end (which is supposed to be the end of season 8). One does have hopes for greater greatness from the show, and a conclusion to the story.

    With regard to the Deftones song: how many people do you know recognise it?

  5. I am a tremendous fan of Dexter, so I am quite excited to get my fix. Seasons 1 and 4 still stand as the highlights of the series, but I’ve enjoyed every season in its own way.

  6. It’s gonna blow my anus away. That ending in a contender against season four’s one. So compelling.

  7. …”made your way to the end of season six”??

    Geez, the wife and I enjoyed the hell out of the first season, but it really seemed to go downhill after that. We watched the whole second season but really lost interest along the way. That show and “Inside the NFL” were the only reason we had Showtime, and it really didn’t seem worth paying extra for it anymore by that point.

  8. Seasons 5 and 6 of Dexter have been god aweful! And I say that as a huge fan of seasons 1-4. This, however, looks promising. FINALLY, the show is going to DO something!
