Quotables: What Would Deb Do If She Found Out About Dexter?

“Would I be okay with it if I found out Dexter was a serial killer? I don’t know. I’m glad it’s not up to me. I feel that that decision is in the writers’ capable hands and they will justify it, and it will be the hardest thing I’ve ever played but I look forward to doing it. Is there room for it? Certainly. My instinct today is she would put her handcuffs on him. But it changes from day to day.”

Jennifer Carpenter discusses her character’s feelings on her beautiful serial killer of a brother.

I don’t know about you guys, but I absolutely LOVE Dexter. I would say that I live for it for about 12 weeks every fall, but really I just ripped through the entire series last winter at an alarming pace.  Like I remember on New Year’s Day this year I laid in bed with my best friend and watched the last eight or nine episodes of season five – the one with Julia Stiles, the saucy minx – and that’s how I knew this year was going to be a good one.

What do you think would happen if Deb found out Dexter’s secret (and don’t try and pop in with spoilers from the books, it’s a little different)? Regardless, can you imagine the tension that’s almost guaranteed to flood the sixth season?  Do you guys care about Dexter at all?  We have a lot to talk about here, friends.

  • Man, Jennifer Carpenter must be the best actress on the planet to still be acting on camera with a recent ex-husband. My guess is that she leans towards slapping the cuffs on Dex more than she admits.

  • I would like it if Dexter stayed under the radar as far as Deb goes… I’m more interested to see what plays out with Quinn now that he knows about Dexter, and that Dexter knows that he knows. I feel like Quinn will help keep Dexter outta harms way since he’s so close to Deb.

  • I think she is a cop first and will take her bro down if it came to it.
    However, I think she will first try to talk to him and try to understand him first.
    But in the end. Blam, Blam, Blam.
    Then she gets the kids. :)
