Dexter season 7 spoilers: New promo clip – How will Debra cope with her brother the serial killer?

Dexter is heading to Comic Con next month and we will be treated to the first two minutes of the season seven premiere at the event, but until then fans will have to content themselves with this new promo.

In the video – just released by US TV network Showtime – we are shown images of both Debs and Dexter and attention is drawn to the question over how the homicide detective will react, after discovering the fact that her brother is a murderer.

In the clip below, Dex ponders:

“They say truth brings light. It’s the lies that live in darkness but here we are, in the moment of truth. Everything in my life has broguth me to this point. It’s what I am. It’s all I am. I can accept that….but can she?”

In the season six finale Debra walked and discovered her adopted sibling – who she was having distinctly un-sisterly feelings for – executing last year’s major bad guy Travis.

Her reaction to Dexter’s crime is teased in the clip below, as she exclaims:

“Get away from the body…… Oh Jesus Dexter.”

Executive producer Scott Buck recently talked about how the writers have chosen to deal with the Debs/Dex cliffhanger and promised fans that they won’t ‘shy away’ from the huge revelation and will tackle Debra’s new feelings and her reaction to her brother’s murdering tendencies head on.

Debra’s actions and response to her discovery will inform the next two seasons of the show, it has also been confirmed and the boss revealed that her once romantic feelings for the dad of one, will have to ‘evolve’ now that she knows his darkest secret.

We are hoping that we will get some major questions answered within the first few episodes of season seven, namely, will Debs find out that her sibling is a serial killer and not just a one time hit man? Will he come clean about all his victims and show her the proof of all his kills? Lastly, will it ruin their bond, or will she find a way to get past the gory truth?

Dexter returns on Sunday, September 30 at 9 P.M. on Showtime, but as we already mentioned, fans will be treated to the opening scene of the series premiere when the stars and producers take part on the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 12 in Ballroom 20.
