Deb has crossed over to the dark side.
Dexter's foul-mouthed lieutenant took a very dark turn on Sunday's finale, shooting her long-time frenemy LaGuerta (Lauren Velez) in order to protect her brother Dexter (Michael C. Hall). So what does this mean for Deb (Jennifer Carpenter)? TVGuide.com turned to showrunner Scott Buck to get the scoop on whether the Morgan siblings will be able to cover up this murder and so much more! Plus: Is Season 8 really Dexter's last? Read below!
Sunday's second-season finale of Showtime's Homeland was titled "The Choice." Which could just as easily have applied to the seventh-season finale of Dexter that immediately preceded it. The ones making the ultimate choice, though, are the viewers, who must decide if they're willing to go where these dark bundles of insanity take them.
I echo Homeland's Brody when I say: "I'm in." I realize it might be hipper to join the Twitter snark parade, especially when it comes to Homeland's giant leaps of credibility-defying faith, but imagine how dull and dreary this fall would have been without this one-two punch of Sunday night high-octane entertainment.

Dexter's Season 7 finale couldn't have been more aptly titled. That's because it wasn't Dexter (Michael C. Hall) who made the most surprising move in this season's closing hour, it was Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), who definitely started off the new year on a bad note. But we'll get to that. First, let's take a look at what events landed Dexter in that fateful shipping container that has surely changed Deb's life forever.
Dexter's Michael C. Hall: Will Hannah turn Dexter in?
The finale naturally opened with Dexter visiting his love Hannah (Yvonne Strahovski) in prison to find out if she plans to turn him in, but...
Dexter's world may come crashing down around him this Sunday.
On Dexter's Season 7 finale (9/8c, Showtime), the series' titular serial killer will have to face the possibility that Hannah (Yvonne Strahovski), whom Dexter (Michael C. Hall) turned in to the cops last week, may decide to retaliate and turn her former beloved in as well. But she could be the least of his worries now that Hector Estrada, the man who ordered the hit on his mother, was able to escape. Will Hector turn to La Guerta (Lauren Velez) lest Dexter find him first? TVGuide.com turned to Hall to find out what's in store for America's favorite serial killer:
Surely through his years as a vigilante killer, Dexter probably never considered facing this conundrum: Dexter's titular serial killer will have to choose between his sister and the woman who could possibly be the love of his life.
Is speed the new suspense on TV?
Following Deb's (Jennifer Carpenter) confrontation in which she threatened to expose Hannah (Yvonne Strahovski) for being a murderer, Hannah will attempt to prevent that in this Sunday's episode (9/8c, Showtime). This will force Dexter (Michael C. Hall) to investigate whether his new girlfriend is trying to off his sister, and may eventually lead to him choosing a side.
