Fans of the perpetually not-cancelled “Chuck” and at least the second game of the Mass Effect series have, frankly, been trapped in a well of depression that is wholly unrelated to those two things finally coming to their respective ends. No, they’ll always have the seasons on DVD/Blu-ray, they’ll always be able to re-play Mass Effect 2, and, for better or worse, they’ll always have the memories. But no matter where they were the first time they ever set eyes on Yvonne Strahovski, it probably felt a little something like this:
Thankfully, the television gods, while often cruel and lacking empathy, are also notoriously good at keeping some of the most attractive people on the planet in front of our eyeballs, which means their needs and our wants are not always mutually exclusive. Because Strahovski will be returning to TV land next year in the seveneth season of Showtime’s “Dexter.” I find this especially fortuitous because just last month, Dustin made a SRL about casting the female version of the Dexter character in a new show, and a couple of commenters tossed in Strahovksi’s name as a qualified candidate. Now, it’s too early to say whether her character Hanna McKay will be the female foil to our anti-hero, but naturally she’s billed as having a secret only Dexter himself can suss out. So, it’s possible, sort of, in a way, exactly what Yvonne Fan always wanted. And that’s nice.
So, considering “Dexter” is a premium show on a premium network, it’s entirely possible we’ll see more of agent Sarah Walker (that’s not her real name) than we ever have before — not counting pixel-based, underpants-clad sex scenes, of course. In honor of that, here’s some of Strahovski’s showiest work to-date. Enjoy!
Okay, okay, okay. For good measure, here are a few shots of Dexter himself, Michael C. Hall…
Rob Payne also writes the comic The Unstoppable Force, tweets on the Twitter @RobOfWar, and his wares can be purchased here and here (if you’re into that sort of thing). Like with “House,” he’s never watched a whole episode of “Dexter,” but he might start soon.
