The 8th and final season of Dexter starts on June 30th. The story will pick-up six months from where if left off last season, and now Jennifer Carpenter’s character is in a state of emotional disarray after shooting LaGuerta: She’s dating dangerous men, snorting various drugs, and getting herself brought in by the police. Not only that, but her decision to utter random swear words is no longer nearly as entertaining as it used to be.

"My life is none of your business," she tells Dexter. "You made me compromise everything about myself that I care about. And I hate you for it. I shot the wrong person in that trailer."

Deb may be more open to killing Dexter than she ever was before (or possibly exposing his late night activities), and if it happens, we can only hope that it is done in a way that the audience can really get behind. We want to see Dexter go out in a blaze of glory, especially since there is no way we can imagine this man really having a happy ending at all.
Hannah McKay (Yvonne Strahovski), who, when last we saw her, had escaped from police custody in the hospital and then left an ominous black orchid at Dexter's door is definitely back for the show's final season.

Strahovski told Yahoo! TV she can't even tell us when she first appears in Season 8, or how many episodes she'll appear in.

"Unfortunately, those are things I can't share, because the big question is for Hannah, because she got away … what has she been doing all this time?" Strahovski says.

"Is she going to pop back into Dexter's life, and if so, how's she going to do that exactly? What will be her intentions at the time? So that's really the exciting part of that."

Strahovski, who says it was a happy surprise when she was asked to return for the Emmy-winning drama's final season, also says she's so excited to see how the show, and her character's storyline, will wrap up that she avoided asking the writers about the ending.

"I kind of chose not to ask what was going to happen with [Hannah]. … I personally don't know what the character's fate will be. I think I'm almost too scared to ask," she said with a laugh. "Part of me doesn't want to spoil the surprise."
And then there's new Miami Metro neuropsychiatrist Evelyn Vogel (Charlotte Rampling), whose nickname, "The Psychopath Whisperer," explains why she's zeroing in on Dexter and peppering him with some deep and leading questions: He's the textbook definition of a psychopath, something the good doctor is going to note.

So, who will be the key to what might finally be the end of not only Dexter's serial killer ways, but also possibly his freedom, or even his life: the pesky Psychopath Whisperer? Hannah and the reasons behind her re-entry into Dexter's life in Season 8?

Or Deb, the woman he grew up with, the woman who was once in love with him and, now, the policewoman who murdered her boss for him?

The Season 8 trailer shows Deb, after being arrested on a DUI charge and still in a very boozed-up state, walking into the police station where she and Dexter work and telling fellow cop (and former lover) Joey Quinn (Desmond Harrington), "I wanna make an official statement."

Uh-oh, Dex.

Some sneak peak scenes:
