There is a new cast member joining the Dark Defender in Season 7! Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck) will play Hannah, a woman who helps the LAPD out with a few cold cases, according to Vulture. She will be in a handful of episodes. Supposedly, her character is somewhat suspicious, and Dexter thinks she is withholding something from them. I think this may be a chance for Dexter to get a pretty blonde in his saran wrap web. Or could she be a love interest? Will she have to fight Dexter’s sister Deb for his affection? So many possibilities!
With two seasons left for Dexter to leave its mark on fans, Showtime is really putting a lot of effort into Season 7. According to Uproxx, (BE CAREFUL-SPOILERS THERE) season 7 is supposed to operate as the first part to the series’ end. We already know that Deb knows Dexter is a killer… well… at least that he’s killed once. She walked in on that.
TVGuide has an interview with Dexter Executive Producer Sara Colleton in which she explains how Deb will react to the Season 6 finale. Dexter’s secret is out, and just Deb’s luck, it came out while she was coming to terms with being IN LOVE with him. Colleton said:
If the series-long quest for Dexter was to finally have someone who really knows him — well, be careful what you wish for because Deb now knows everything and that’s a game-changer.
In regards to Deb seeing Dexter kill Travis, TV Guide asked Colleton if Deb will learn everything this season.
Yeah. Obviously this whole season we’re going to have great fun playing with every permutation that can be played between Debra and Dexter in their relationship now that this information has come out. She was on her way to the church at the end of the last season because she had come to realize that she not only loved her foster-brother Dexter but she is in love with him. So now what does she do?
For the whole interview, check out the TVGuide website.
Dexter returns to Showtime on September 30th.
