'Dexter' exec hints at season seven romance twist

By
Dexter exec Scott Buck has hinted at a new twist for Deb and Dexter's relationship.

Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) developed romantic feelings for her adopted brother in season six, but saw him commit a murder in that year's finale.

"The [romantic] feelings certainly don't disappear," Buck told TV Guide. "It'll be interesting for people to see her first response to that [revelation] and how that will change over the course of the season as well."

The showrunner confirmed that the story of Deb's feelings for Dexter (Michael C Hall) will again be a season-long arc.

"As you'll see, she doesn't get around to saying that to Dexter," he revealed. "So in all these previous seasons, it was Dexter with the big secret - now suddenly Deb has the secret."

Deb will confront Dexter in the upcoming season seven premiere, with star Jennifer Carpenter calling the much-anticipated reveal "the strangest, scariest seduction scene".

"It's sort of perfect," she teased. "I didn't want Debra to lose any credibility with the audience. I wanted the things we've claimed to be true about her to remain so, and Scott Buck and the team of writers and producers did a great job."

The new season of Dexter will premiere on Sunday, September 30 on Showtime. In the UK, the series airs on FX.
