‘Dexter’ Season 8 Spoilers: Deb’s New Love Interest Revealed?
As Showtime’s ‘Dexter‘ prepares to unveil its eighth, and possibly final season this summer on June 30, fans well know that Dexter’s sister Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) has undergone quite a roller coaster in the last two seasons alone. In addition to developing icky romantic feelings for her adopted brother and learning his dark secret, season 7 finale ‘Surprise, Motherf—er” had Deb breaking bad in her own right, but will she turn over a new leaf in season 8? Find out what the latest set photos from ‘Dexter’ season 8 reveal inside!
No one knows what ‘Dexter’s potentially final season will hold in store for Deb, who in the past two seasons alone has endured everything from Dexter’s dark passenger to potentially creating one of her own, but is Deb finally moving on from her twisted infatuation with Dexter? New photos from SpoilerTV of the ‘Dexter’ season 8 set seem to show Jennifer Carpenter (looking much more crimped and dressed-down than we’re used to) getting close with a new man outside a storefront.
HuffPostTV believes the actor in question to be ‘Entourage‘ star Rhys Coiro, but Showtime has yet to confirm the actor’s presence in the photos, or possible casting on the series. Given Deb’s atypical look in the scene, we could very easily be witnessing a dream sequence or a flashback of some kind, several of which have been featured in past episodes.
Elsewhere, ‘Dexter’ season 8 will feature the cast additions ‘The Walking Dead‘ star Nick Gomez as a hitman that comes to tangle with Deb, Charlotte Rampling as criminal profiling neuro-psychiatrist Dr. Evelyn Vogel, and ‘The Boondock Saints’ star Sean Patrick Flanery as ex-cop turned private-eye Jacob Elroy.
Showtime has yet to make a definitive statement about season 8 being the final year for ‘Dexter,’ but it’s certainly been implied before, with more official announcements to be given in the coming months. The new season will premiere on June 30, paired with Showtime’s Liev Schreiber “fixer” drama ‘Ray Donovan.’
