As piss-poor as "Dexter" has been for most of the last couple of seasons, the show did at least leave off Season Six with a killer cliffhanger, one the show had been building towards since the opening. Just as our friendly neighborhood forensic scientist/serial killer puts the killing blow into the season's big bad, Travis Marshall (Colin Hanks), his adopted sister Debra (who had earlier realized that she was in love with him; don't ask...) walked in on him.

As piss-poor as "Dexter" has been for most of the last couple of seasons, the show did at least leave off Season Six with a killer cliffhanger, one the show had been building towards since the opening. Just as our friendly neighborhood forensic scientist/serial killer puts the killing blow into the season's big bad, Travis Marshall (Colin Hanks), his adopted sister Debra (who had earlier realized that she was in love with him; don't ask...) walked in on him. 

Had his sister finally discovered his secret life? Would he be forced to kill her? Either way, the show was seemingly changed forever, and fans have been gasping to find out the conclusion over the seven months since the Season Six finale aired. Well, to help the breathe a little easier, Showtime debuted the first two minutes of the Season Seven premiere at Comic-Con early this morning, and like a flash have put it online for fans who couldn't make it to San Diego to enjoy.

We gave up investing in the show a while back, but even so, this feels like something of a cop-out to us -- hinting that the creators are allowing the status quo to go on for the most part. But we suppose that they've got to make their two final seasons somehow, and the dynamic between Dexter and Debra is certain to change, and will hopefully inject a little more drama into the series. Ray Stevenson and Yvonne Strahovksi have joined the show for Season Seven, and you'll be able to see them when "Dexter" returns to Showtime on September 30th. Watch the clip below.
