  • Goosebumps and tears. Can only happen with “Dexter”.

  • Rita was not Dexter’s nor Deb’s victim!

    Comment by Summer – March 22, 2013 09:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Well, Dex was responsible for what happened to Rita. They’ve made note of his direct kills as well the collateral damage he’s caused.

      • tvline misleading us!!Call the Popo!

    • The promo only says “they’re done”. And that’s true for Rita (and Maria), even if Dexter didn’t kill her.

      • Why does everyone forget about Doakes??? He was also killed by Lila! And Sirko was killed by George. But has I explained beneath, I accept Rita, Doakes and Maria as “colateral damage”, but not Sirko. Sirko was killed because he was a risk to George, his obcession on Dexter was just an excuse for the Koshka’s approval. A very bad one, I think…

        Comment by Maga – March 25, 2013 05:53 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Nor Doakes either, but they died because of Dexter. Doakes was killed by Lila to protect Dexter’s true identity, Rita was killed by the Trinity to revenge Dexter’s hunting on him. Isacc Sirko is the only one who doesn’t fit on that list to me.

  • GOOSEBUMPS

  • I haven’t liked the last two seasons so they better up the ante on this final season. Last season’s love story was just boring.

  • I don’t want Dexter to end.

  • Wow, great, psychological promo! Looking forward to Dexter, as well as some other great summer shows as well – Falling Skies, Defiance, Mistresses, Awkward, Franklin & Bash, Rookie Blue.

  • Can’t wait. And I wouldn’t fight ‘em if they carried it on after this season either.
    QUESTION: By the way, the person singing thru this promo, anyone know if this is the same person/band who sings “Greenback Boogie” or whatever the theme song for “Suits” is called? Sounds like it to me. Thanks.

    Comment by Jack – March 23, 2013 09:47 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Nop, not the same group. This prom song is “Here and Gone” by Mississippi Twilight. Great song.

  • Season 7 was not good! This is the last season!

    Comment by Rob – March 23, 2013 09:48 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Michael C Hall already said season 8 is the last.

  • I hope Dexter ends on TV but could continue on cinemas. Do you imagine DEXTER the movie? Fingers cross

    Of course, if the character survives the series finale

    • Oh, didn’t you hear that Deb ends up killing him? Thought this was common knowledge by now.

      Comment by Kergoar – March 25, 2013 08:06 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Rumuors are not exactly reliable… I doubt even the actors know at this point how will Dexter end. And after shooting an inoccent to protect his brother, I doubt that Deb will be the end of him. But I also doubt that he has a happy ending. Nor even Deb.

  • I understand the connection, but Isacc Sirko’s name shouldn’t be on this list. He’s death wasn’t caused by Dexter, it is even not clear (at least to me) that it was caused by his obcession on Dexter. It was just an excuse for George to get rid of him. But ok, it has a connection… But not like Doakes, Rita or LaGuerta, who were killed by others to protect (Doakes and LaGuerta) or revenge on (Rita) Dexter… But it’s a minor mistake consedering that season 7 really blown my expectations!

  • I don’t want Dexter to end! I love this show. Please at least one more season. I just can’t handle my fav show ending. Please reconsider :(

  • This was def hot but when Rita died she wasn’t Rita Bennet she was Rita Morgan

  • Can not wait til June. Season 7 sort of humanized Dexter. Will season 8 suddenly dehumanize him, when all that is left is to kill “good guys” who discover who he is or will they let Dexter go out as a hero ? Every city may even wish they had a vigilante like Dexter. Dexter would be a great ” Brand” vigilante for the “Big” screen, much like Bronson, and Eastwood before him.

  • I’m so happy to see Hannah returning for season 8. I’m sure there’s a lot of rabbits who are
    not so happy, that their number one predator is back in town!
