You guys! It’s Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter! Or Dexter and Deb from Dexter! Or two beautiful lovers who were separated before their time by sickness (or Julia Stiles, whatever). Either way, the point is that these two were photographed together back on Wednesday, and, as you can see, things are looking a little intimate, aren’t they?
This glorious couple split up back in 2010, if you’ll remember, and the rumor was that Michael left Jennifer because he was cheating on her with his costar in that current season of Dexter, Julia Stiles. The rumor was denied, but everyone still had their suspicions, of course.
But then, just a few weeks ago, there was a new rumor. A magical, lovely, inspiring rumor. The word was that Michael and Jennifer might be back on, and that word was based on some sightings of the couple having dinner at a hotel, and then having coffee together the next morning, and I know I don’t need to spell that one out for you.
And now look! Those pictures! That look on Michael’s face! Either here’s in some serious love or he’s thinking about his cats. Either way, my heart is touched.
People has a breakdown of the date, and if you’re a romantic too, maybe stop reading right before the last paragraph:
The Dexter costars –who wed on New Years Eve in 2009 – and were divorced two years later – were spotted looking cozy during an evening out Wednesday in Venice Beach, Calif.
Hall, 41, clutched Carpenter’s arm as the pair grabbed coffee before heading to the beach to watch the sun set. Once there, the actor pulled his ex-wife in for an embrace.
“He is and always will be one of my best friends in the world. Just because the marriage ended doesn’t mean the love isn’t still there,” Carpenter, 32, told Today last October. “We take very good care of each other … we always have. I’m just really lucky.”
This isn’t the first time the former lovebirds have been spotted looking especially sweet post-split. At the PEOPLE/Entertainment Industry Foundation SAG Awards Bash last month, the seemingly upbeat pair was by each other’s side throughout the night while mingling with mutual pals.
But don’t get your hope up for a reconciliation – after another java fix was caught on camerain January, a source told PEOPLE, “Jennifer and Michael are friends. They spend time together. They work together. It was not romantic.”
Sorry, People, but consider my hopes “up.” There’s no convincing me that anything these kids do together isn’t because of their deep, undying love for each other.
Oh, and speaking of deep undying love for each other, I didn’t see any of that last season of Dexter, but I heard that Dex and Deb are in love now? Is that right? Can someone explain that to me?

So people were honestly a little skeeved back in 2008 when the couple ran away together and eloped. And that whole thing was very, “You guys! They aren’t actually Luke and Leia,” and anyway, I’ve always thought Dexter and his sister make an oddly good-looking couple. Don’t they?
Then, the drama. Is Julia Stiles some creep-o homewrecker? The world will never know.
We do know, however, that the Dexter costars are splitsville, finito, dunzo.
OR ARE THEY?!?!?! Page Six with the scoop:
It appears that “Dexter” stars Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter, who finalized their divorce in December, might be taking a second shot at love.
On Tuesday night, Hall and Carpenter—who play siblings on their Showtime TV series, but fell in love on set and eloped in 2008—were spotted at Beverly Hill’s Peninsula Hotel, Radar reports. The next morning, the pair was photographed getting coffee together, meaning that the date could have turned into a sleepover.
“Michael and Jennifer were seated at a dimly lit corner table, sipping wine,” a witness said. “It was a very romantic setting and definitely looked like a date.”
The source says that the two were very affectionate with each other.
“When Jennifer got up to use the ladies, Michael squeezed her hand, looked up at her and she smiled. And when she got back, they held hands on the table for a bit,” the source says. “At one point, Michael leaned across the table and he and Jennifer kissed — a make-out kind of kiss, not a friendly one. They both looked really happy.”
The real reason I’m covering this is, I get so tired of breakup stories. Everyone’s always breaking up! Plus I adore these kids. You guys! Michael C. Hall might really be dating his ex-wife! I’m so excited.

“I spend a lot of time with my cats. They’re both boys, they’re both very affectionate. Their names are Preacher and Ford. They’re my four-legged friends.”
I don’t know if this is something you could tell about me or not, but I’ve always been pegged as a future cat lady. I’ve only had two cats my whole life, both of them while I was under the age of 12, but both times everyone was like “oh yeah, this is going to be a problem.” I might have one now, but my roommate threatens to kick me out whenever I linger at the cat adoption center at the Petsmart, and also my puppy would gladly devour a cat.
But regardless of my current predicament, I understand you, Michael C. I know how you feel, and you know what? I accept you for it. I might not agree with the rumored infidelity, but I truly believe that all transgressions can be overlooked while playing with a kitten and a piece of string.

I sure hope so, because how adorable would it be for little Michael C. Hall to embrace the Lord? He could go to church with Angel and read the Bible to little Harrison. Or, you know, not. He could burn churches and live in filthy sin too, I don’t really care. Basically I’m just unbearably excited about the sixth season of Dexter and all the magic and drama that it will surely hold.
How delightful is this upcoming season going to be?

And whether or not what she says is true, I’m going to go on the assumption that she’s telling the truth. If she’s not, well hell. It wouldn’t be the first time an affair has come out in its early stages, broken up a Hollywood marriage, and was denied, denied, denied … ’til, you know, weeks later at the very least.
Me, I like Julia Stiles a lot. A lot of people give her flack because they don’t think she’s relevant anymore, but you know what? Eff that. I think she’s a Wicked talent, was fabulous in The Omen remake, and was a part of the later years of my adolescence with 10 Things I Hate About You, Hamlet, and of course, Save the Last Dance (and I don’t even like dance movies, so there).
Julia had this to say about boning around with Michael C. Hall behind Jennifer Carpenter’s back:
“I have absolutely nothing to do with the split between Michael and Jennifer. We are good friends and enjoyed working together. This is a personal matter between them, and we should respect their privacy. Although I too prefer to keep my private life private, I felt compelled to dispel the rumors I was somehow the cause for this matter.”
Well said, Jules. Well said.
Now let’s just give it some time and see whether or not it’s true, huh?

Michael C. Hall just left his wife Jennifer Carpenter after two years of marriage and now sources are saying it could be because of Dexter guest star Julia Stiles.
“They have a lot of chemistry and seemed to be extra cozy with each other. The way he’s been behaving lately you would have never thought his marriage just ended. I figured something was definitely up once I heard about the divorce announcement.”
If there was any sort of infidelity on Michael’s part, he was 100% right to bring an end to his marriage before things got any worse. Jennifer, who stayed by Michael’s side when he had cancer earlier this year and was a huge source of support, deserves to be freed of that sort of selfishness. However, it is truly a shame that her loyalty to him during his hard times wasn’t mirrored.
And Julia Stiles? Really? I mean, she was cool back in the day, but I didn’t realize she was relevant enough to go breaking up marriages. What a shame.
