Finally, we get the “Dexter” trailer we’ve been waiting for; the one with our boy going in for a kill, a couple of intriguingly mysterious guest actors and the appropriate dark music accompaniment. This is the tease that gets our minds wondering what the hell kind of impossible mess Dex will get in and out of this season. That’s pretty much what we’ve come to expect from this show, along with the usual good beginning, slow to boring middle, crescendo and then either a loud boom that leaves us breathless, or a whimper. Season 5 was one that whimpered and sort of limped off the air, maybe a little ashamed of what it had done. But I have higher hopes for Season 6 for two reasons. Number one: Edward James Olmos. Man can act his motherfrakking ass off and he can play good, bad, twisted—you name it. It looks like he may be some sort of religious figure here, possibly directing the activities of another of the season’s guests, Colin Hanks. Reason number two is, I think we have a good shot at Deb finding out about her brother’s true nature. It’s time. The show has been teasing us long enough now. As much as Deb tries to be a straight cop, I really think she’d struggle with her knowledge for a while and then decide to stand by her brother (as in, not turn him in). And if that happens, the next season could dive right into that mess—Deb the cop vs. Deb the sister. Lots of speculation on my part, I know.
Here’s the heart-pounding trailer:
There’s quite a bit going on there, I think I have to watch a few more times. Looks like Deb may have gotten a promotion and is EJO the competition?
Mos Def also guest stars and “Dexter” Season 6 will premiere on Showtime, October 2, 2011.
