Dexter Season 8 Teaser Paints a Bloody Picture

A brand-new, artsy teaser video for Dexter Season 8 (premiering June 30) paints a not-pretty picture of what’s ahead for TV’s Favorite Serial Killer (Cable Drama Division).

The video from Showtime starts with a close-up of one lone, innocent-enough droplet of blood (or, you know, paint, probably), but then things begin to spiral — as Dexter warns that he himself is spiraling out of control.

And when he does? “It is not going to be pretty.”

  • Why do I get the feeling dexter is going to off himself in the series finale?

    • Money question is: What does Dexter think is better for Harrison? Just to be a dead father or a convicted serial killer locked up in prison for eternity? Those are the only two real possibilities I see for the ending of the show. He will then realize the former may just the best option he has when things really spiral out of control as the teaser suggests.

      • Harrison can always Iive with his grandparents just like Cody & Astor are. Would it be better for Harrison to grow up knowing his father is a serial killer currently in prison? Doubtful that would be the option Dexter would choose.

        • I’m sure Dexter would want Deb to raise Harrison, not Ritas parents. If he kills himself he’d also protect Deb from any harm a trial would definitely cause.

          • Deb is in no condition to raise a child. She’s far too messed up & unstable, unless she changes through season 8, I don’t see how Dexter would want her to raise Harrison.

  • Moving this show to the summer created a huge problem for me. I can only afford one premium channel at a time and during the summer it’s been HBO so I can watch True Blood and repeat marathons of GOT. I’ll probably have to catch this on netflix, bummer.

    • In my experience HBO and Sho have usually come in a premium package that is fairly reasonable. Maybe try complaining endlessly about switching providers until they hook you up, that can sometimes be successful.

  • Ahhhh! These teaser promos are great and all, but how much longer until we get to see new material from the up coming season?!? Need…more…Dexter!!!

  • With police closing in on him and evidence mounting, Dexter has no choice but to take a hostage as a delaying tactic to give him a moment to figure a way out. Unfortunatly Angel was the nearest bystander. Deb draws, points the gun towards Batista and tells her brother to move out of the way. Dexter refuses. Deb fires.

    Last scene,
    Deb drops to her knees and cries, “Oh my god what have I done.”
    Camera pans back
    Centers on Dexter lying in a pool of his own blood with a bullet hole between his eyes.

    Time lapse photography as they rope of the crime scene with caution tape and Masuka begins to take notes.

  • Dex goes to jail for LaGuerta’s murder, thereby saving his sister and warping our expectations that he would go down for a crime he facilitated. Calling it now.

  • I think he’ll have to go on the run once he gets found out. He’ll end up meeting Hannah in Argentina.
