“Dexter” is gearing up for an explosive seventh season, and now we’ve finally gotten our hands on the first promo for the fall episodes. There’s no new footage from the show, but we do see Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) and Dexter (Michael C. Hall) in a sort of stand-off as his chilling voiceover reminds us what’s at stake.
In the final moments of Season 6, Deb finally found out Dexter’s dark secret as she saw him murder his latest victim. It’s bound to bring about a whole host of conflicting feelings, particularly given the fact that she’s finally admitted that she’s in love with him.
“They say truth brings light; it’s the lies that live in darkness,” says Dexter in the promo. “But here we are, in the moment of truth. Everything in my life has brought me to this point. It’s what I am. It’s all I am. I can accept that, but can she?”
In our first hint as to what’s to come, we then hear Deb cry, “Get away from the body! Jesus, Dexter!” as he tells her, “Deb, it’s me.”
