"See that?" shrieks one of the band of zombie-slaughtering survivors in AMC's The Walking Dead, eyes wide and wild in bloodthirsty pride as we bear graphic witness to a new way of dispatching a "walker" — this one tricked out in riot-gear armor, befitting the new season's prison setting. Yes, of course we see. It's not as if we can look away, much as we might want to at times. Granted, we might need to look twice, because in the tradition of the greatest horror-movie thrill rides, we're sometimes watching through our fingers as we climb the back of our chairs and sofas in revulsed shock and awe.
After spending the past six seasons keeping his Dark Passenger in the, uh, dark, Dexter's titular character will be forced out of the serial-killing closet in the season premiere.
So what does this mean for Dexter now? TVGuide.com turned to showrunner Scott Buck to get the scoop on how this reveal changes everything in the coming season, from his relationship with Deb to whom else might be coming after him.

Dexter is in trooooouble!
When Dexter returns for its seventh — and penultimate — season, both viewers and their favorite serial-killing blood spatter analyst will discover just what happens when his secret is revealed.
The last we saw of Dexter (Michael C. Hall), he had finally delivered his own biblical form of vengeance upon Travis (Colin Hanks), who had left Miami in fear over where the Doomsday Killer would strike next. He had also kidnapped Dexter's son Harrison, which finally hit a nerve with the often emotionless Dexter, who then stuck it to Travis — literally — in the closing moments of the finale. Unfortunately, Dexter wasn't alone in that church, with Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) planning to profess her love to her brother before walking in on him driving a knife into Travis.

Clearly, Deb's reaction will be Dexter's greatest obstacle this season as he's faced with someone finally taking off his mask. But...
Showtime's Dexter is not back until the fall but, oh, the questions we have about the season ahead! What will Debra (Jennifer Carpenter) do now that she's onto Dexter (Michael C. Hall) and his serial-killing ways?
Swedish-born actress Katia Winter has landed a recurring role on Showtime's serial killer drama Dexter.
Winter, who starred opposite Kellan Lutz in the action film Arena, will head to the series for Season 7, where she'll play a Russian stripper who works in a Miami gentlemen's club, according to TVLine.
