It’s just about time for Dexter’s Season 7 premiere. For those of you who don’t know,  it’s tonight: Sunday, September 30, 2012!

If you haven’t seen the previous seasons and plan to do so, stop reading now. Otherwise, here is a little recap…

Season 6 ended with a jaw-dropping, cliff hanging bang, but we’ll get to that in a bit. It started with Maria LaGuerta (Lauren Velez) getting a nice promotion to captain, thanks to her blackmailing of Deputy Matthews (Geoff Pierson)….she had proof he was with a prostitute in town. The drama for Miami Metro didn’t stop there, as Masuka (C.S. Lee) took on an intern and had to later fire her (Brea Grant) for stealing evidence …aka the ice truck killer hand… and selling it on an auction site. When Masuka brings on a new intern, Louis (Josh Cooke), he thinks Louis fixed the problem but that remains to be sured up.

Batista (David Zayas) is now divorced from lieutenant (aka Captain LaGuerta) and gets overlooked in the department when Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) is promoted to lieutenant! Batista and Quinn (Desmond Harrington) end up partners in the field, and after Deb turns down Quinn’s marriage proposal, he turns to alcohol as a vice. Batista tires of looking out for Quinn and gets put in awkward situations because of Quinn’s behavior all too often this season.

As if the internal drama for Miami Metro PD wasn’t enough, season 6 revolves around the Doomsday Killers: James Gellar (Edward James Olmos) and Travis Marshall (Colin Hanks) using religion (specifically The Book of Revelation) to bring forth the end of the world through the Apocalypse. Through elaborate murder scenes based on the book, they re-enact or depict the Four Horseman and more! While visually stunning, season 6, much like season 5, failed to live up to the first four seasons of the show.  In the end, Gellar was a ghost and his student, Marshall was the one doing all the killing because of his disturbed nature. Of course, Dexter (Michael C. Hall) was able to figure this all out, despite having plenty of his own drama- including a reference to Trinity when his wife and daughter showed up dead in Nebraska, a vision of the ice truck killer and more.

The season ended with the second best cliffhanger in series history, second only to the end of the Trinity season. After much therapy, Deb realized she may love her brother. When she rushed to tell him, she walked in to find him killing Travis!  End!

Where will this season pick up? How will the writers take this in season 7? It’s hard to say. They did a poor job (in my opinion) doing the first episodes after Rita, they had so many options. Will Deb keep the secret, will she think it was in self defense? Could she join him in the killings moving forward?

What do you hope happens?
