And in case you didn't read the title; SPOILERS AHEAD.
Just got done watching the premiere. Gotta say, I'm far more excited for this season than I've been for any one since four. Killing Rita was probably the best thing they could have done for the series, even though it took two seasons for it to hit its full effect. What I mean by that is they were writing Dexter to a point where he was beginning to gain a true human side. That's wonderful character development and all, but it did not make for a compelling show. Seasons 5 and 6 started to walk that back a bit, but Season 7 seems to be the closest Dexter's come to his old, sociopathic glory in quite a while.
I also like that this is the first season in a while where I've felt some continuity. Generally the past couple seasons of Dexter have felt very weird and stand alone, with as little mention of previous seasons as possible. The Ice truck Killer and the Bay Harbor Butcher both felt like they had very little impact outside their respective seasons, so it's nice to have one season dovetail directly into the next in such a fashion, and also have those two factors finally come back in to play.
What about you? What did you think of the premiere? What do you want to see this season? Predictions?
