Watch this trailer and tell me there isn’t any symbolism in the panning wide shot of Dexter’s wall of victims. Facing an empty frame, the shot suggests that Dexter may be the final kill, after years of following his father’s code. Will his masterpiece be the life he has built for himself? Or will it be the gallery of madmen that hang on the wall in this iconic shot?
Season eight of Dexter will be the show’s last. It premieres on Showtime on June 30th. Joining the show this season are Yvonne Strahovski, Julian Sands (as one of the season’s villains), Bethany Joy Lenz, Nick Gomez, Darri Ingolfsson, Sean Patrick Flanery as an ex-cop turned private eye, and Charlotte Rampling, playing a psychological profiler.
