Dexter’s Season Seven Opener: Deb, Meet Dex

Dexter is about to begin its seventh season, and charmingly sociopathic Dexter Morgan has yet to clue in his always close, sometimes very close sister Debra about his moonlighting high jinx. Now — spoiler alert — that chapter is seconds away from coming to a close.

A few thoughts regarding this clip, the first two minutes of the season premiere: Firstly, hilarious bleeps, Showtime. We dig. Secondly, this is a dimly lit, ominous scene! Lastly, why would the camera ever, ever linger on Dexter's emotionless-by-definition face as he spins his best yarn explaining to his sister why and how he is a serial killer? And still: Compelling!
