If you haven’t caught up on Dexter, you may not want to read this article, because it will contain some commentary on the conclusion of the sixth season. But first, TV Line has news that Ray Stevenson (from HBO’s Rome and films like The Three Musketeers and Thor) will join the seventh season of the Showtime drama. There aren’t too many details on his character, but apparently the Irish actor is set to play a senior member of a dangerous crime ring from Eastern Europe who comes to Miami to learn who killed one of his associates. It’s not clear if he’ll be one of the main villains who could give Dexter (Michael C. Hall) a run for his money, but I’m sure they’ll cross paths for at least a couple episodes.
Of course, who knows how this new season will play out after not only the incestuous revelation between Dexter and his sister Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), but her discovery of Dexter dispatching with last year’s serial killer of the month. I guess well have to wait and find out when the season premieres on September 30th, but we’ll likely have a better idea before that if Dexter shows up at Comic-Con again this year.
