Hot Video: Does Dexter's New Doctor Know the True Identity of the Bay Harbor Butcher?

The latest promo for Dexter‘s eighth and final season (bowing June 30) will leave you asking two questions: Who is this new doctor assisting a Miami Metro case? And why the heck is she zeroing in on Dex?

The character in question is portrayed by British actress Charlotte Rampling, who joins the last leg of the Showtime saga as Dr. Evelyn Vogel, a neuropsychiatrist known as the “psychopath whisperer.” While it’s unclear what her connection to the Dark Passenger and his alter ego is, the accompanying tease that “she will change everything” indicates that it’s got to be pretty huge.

Does Evelyn see through Dexter’s facade? Does she actually know who the Bay Harbor Butcher is? Also, what happened to Harrison?! Hit the comments with your theories and predictions.

  • Is there any any chance Dexter witnessed the murder of someone who looked like his mom? This woman could play his mother. I know I am reaching here.

    • I’m all for twists like this one but the logical explanation why this is impossible is as follows ;)
      1) brian moser (ice truck killer) was with dexter when their mum dies so that’s pretty much confirming it’s her!
      2) even if she had lived, it’s improbable that the woman wouldn’t have gone from junkie to phd :D :D

  • Will she get into Dexter’s mind to somehow convince him to confess or will she get wrapped in plastic bag?

  • Why is Matthews back? Is he back as Captain since LaGuerta died?

    • My guess is he is back as Captain since LaGuerta is dead and no longer has the evidence of him seeing call girls.

      • Plus wasn’t part of the deal he made with her last season (to help her get to Dexter) that she somehow get him reinstated (I forget how).

  • I think this doctor will “fix” dexter and that will be the end of the show.

  • My guess? She was Dexter’s pychologist right after his mother’s murder (that would explain the kids’ drawings she gave him. They were his). Also, because this show revels in being dark. I would bet she was the creator of his “Dark Passenger.” In other words, as his psychologist she used him as a guinea pig to see if she could create a psychopath. Now she’s back to see her work first hand … Or, worse, to see if she can do it again with his son … maybe she kidnaps Harrison. Great way to get Deb and Dexter working together again.

    • Well that would be very dark indeed!

    • I think your plot makes sense more that the others I have read. Good job, lets see if it works out. I don’t like that Deb confesses as I don’t think Dexter would go along with her taking the blame.

    • Yeah, I like your idea. It would make for a very interesting drama, lots of twists.

    • Genius! That would be an awesome twist!

    • Wow..interesting theory. You might be right..she made a comment about knowing Dexter’s dad last episode. I wonder if something happens to Deb at the end if Dexter will kill himself or do a murder/sucide re: deb

  • Bet that Dr Vogel is using Dex as a cobaye since he was a young boy. She’s the one who help to develop the code with Harry so that Dex could kill killers only. There is a reason why, according to a spoiler, that Dr Vogel will keep quiet about Dex’s other activities… I think she’s as guilty as he is by using him as a cobaye all through these years with out blowing the cover on him. Either that or he will began threatening her. She probably knew all that time that he is the Bay Harbour Butcher.

  • She was kind of the Natalie Dormer of her day. In fact she’s also played Anne Boleyn and Irene Adler.

    • I do think this final season is going to be EPIC. I see Dexter going down and Deb prevailing.. It’s. the only way it can play out and end the way MCH wants it to (he is against it being open ended).

  • In the trailer, Dr. Vogel hands drawings to Dexter which he probably made straight after his Mother was brutally murdered. It is no coincidence that Dexter is sitting on a bench dedicated to Maria LaGuerta when Vogel hands her folder to Dexter.

    If Vogel developed ‘Harrys code’ and the ‘Dark Passenger’ concept – maybe she feels the Dexter experiment has run its course now that LaGuerta is dead – Perhaps she is the Doctor who gave young Dexter the idea of the dark passenger and therefore Vogel is the dark passenger and also acted as guide to Brian. Maybe she has used both Dexter and Brian as guinea pigs for her books on psychopaths. Vogel could have treated both Brian Moser and Dexter during their formative years and decided both had psychopathic tendencies. Perhaps Vogel was a confidant of Harry’s who has been studying Dexter for years and wants his brain when he’s dead. Or maybe she was related to Laura Moser.

    Dexter is doomed, Harry’s code has been violated. Chief Matthews, Deb, Angel, Hannah etc. will all be on his case. Perhaps we will soon see Dexter appearing, Harry like, in a new HBO series ‘ Harrison’.

    I would love to see a spinoff series ( part comedy) about Vince Masuka. Love Vince, hilarious.

    • I agree, Vince Masuka needs his own series!

    • Spin off show named “Harrison.” Beautiful.
      I would like to see a spinoff of Dexter where he is stalking Brian Cranston of Breaking Bad.

  • Dexter is lost.

  • I think, since Deb has killed already, and she may buy into the born in blood philosophy, she may have killed both Harrison and herself, as she can’t live with what she’s done and doesn’t want Harrison to grow up into another Dexter.

  • Geez,Charlotte Rampling use to be so hot back in the day.She hasn’t aged well.

  • What if Vigel works with Hannah, and Hannah is doing the Braun stuff. She and Vogel could be working together to get Dexter. And yeah, deb will pick up where dexter leaves off!

  • I think Vogul is a psychopath, which is why she has such a clear understanding of psychopaths. This also explains why she considers psychopaths as a special demographic, since one of the common characteristics of psychopaths is narcissism. I believe she is also the “brain surgeon.” Maybe she is setting up the entire thing to see how Dexter reacts… Or maybe she is observing his techniques and comparing them to her own.
