Will Dexter die? New 'Dexter' final season poster revealed


Dexter blood


The hard sell and promotional push for the final season of 'Dexter' continues, today marking the release of a suggestive new poster, which you can view below. SPOILERS FOLLOW!!


Still with me? Well those of you who are caught up with 'Dexter' through to the end of the seventh season know that the season didn't end well for our lovely LaGuerta (played by Lauren Velez). As some sneak peek footage from the eigth and final season showed, Debra isn't dealing very well with what happened as the seventh season came to a close. Check out the footage:


Now, following that sneak peek, we get the following poster depicting Dexter himself with a vacant stare, under the same plastic he wraps his victims in before killing them. Could this be a sign of things to come? Is the final season of 'Dexter' going to bring absolute finality to the murderer we've come to love?

Here is the poster--you can draw your own conclusions:

The image certainly seems to suggest the death of the title character... but lest we forget the marketing for season seven? The images of Dexter with a cut on his cheek--another part of his pre-kill ritual--caused the same speculation of Dexter's impending demise a season ago. So, while this is certainly suggestive, it can only be taken as a hint, at this point.

'Dexter' is a wildly popular Showtime drama thriller series about a serial killer with a conscience and a code of rules to live by: he is only allowed to kill other killers. This strange anti-hero vigilante leads a double-life on the forensic squad of Miami Metro Police, where his sister Debra works as a detective.

Now, given that Showtime has definitively announced the eighth season as the final in 'Dexter's run, it seems far more plausible that Dexter could bite the bullet by the finale. I ask every fan out there: is that the best way for 'Dexter' to end? Can you think of any satisfying conclusions you'd like to see where Dexter Morgan continues to draw breath? Sound off in the comments below!

I can see Dexter relaxing on a beach in Hawaii, watching his son playing on the sand, while McGarrett with Danno and the Lovely Kona Kono are chasing shadows…

I was hoping we get to see Dex in prison (always thought final season would be in there), so we get to see him kill loads of prisoners that he don't like

He won't die, that's just one of those dreams he has and sees himself in. He's got a getaway plan, we've saw. He'll just toss off for a few years elsewhere.. :)

What a fucking cocktease, Dexter dies in the end, MY PALE WHITE ASS! I still wish they would have taken the serial killer children from the book. Maybe it will be Dexter and the kid, with his sis at the helm. Oops, just like the books.

I think it would be very fitting that at the end, Dexter dies along with the show. I see that as one of the most plausible endings. And the promotional posters have always been a hint at what's to come, so it looks like they might just go that way.
