Yes, each season has a theme. From a post by EnormousHatred on reddit: Season 1: Individualism. In the beginning Dexter followed Harry's code to the letter and never really let his own feelings get in the way. He never really questioned a way of life that came from within. Brian represented the antithesis of Harry's code; he was a free spirit with no ...

I think this is just a simple thing thrown in from the director/writer to try to draw a comparison of Dexter to Bateman. Both are killers but when thought about, Bateman is more vain and reckless than Dexter, the chainsaw scene is my reference here. Whereas Dexter is quiet, methodical, and adheres to a strict code whenever he can. In a relative sense, one ...

This happened at the end of Season 4 (The Getaway): Debra finds out the truth about Dexter's mother, and tells him that she knows that Dexter's brother was the Ice Truck Killer. Dexter pretended this news was new to him and acted surprised. He is now concerned that Debra is getting closer to finding the truth about him, which gives him more of a ...

If I remember correctly, Dexter tests the blood on Quinn but provides falsified results stating that the blood is not Liddy's. Quinn realises that Dexter is getting him off the hook and then more or less lets Dexter off. There is no hint that the suspicion has gone away, but that he accepts that Dexter is not all he seems, but trusts him.

The monitoring equipment in the hospital measures things like blood pressure, pulse, oxygenation and the like. What it doesn't monitor is blood clots. Blood clotting is a normal reaction to wounds and is part of the healing process. What happened to Debra is that one of the clots came free and began circulating around her bloodstream. At some point, it ...

When you’ve got plans for the night, you better dress to kill. Literally. We’re not really sure why Dexter always wears the same long sleeve brown henley shirt. It could be because it helps him keep a low profile, it’s easier to keep track of which shirt might have traces of evidence on it or it could just be because he thinks it looks cool. Get the official ...

One of the famous quotes of Season 6: "Most of the people here don't have two rolls of duct tape, 80 yards of plastic sheeting and a surgical saw in their trunk." - Dexter. Dexter's car trunk can accommodate the plastic foil and/or other items that are used in the murder scene. What we see is Dexter dropping two/three plastic bags into the sea but ...

Hannah made mention that deep down she's still the young girl that ran off with Wayne and based on revealed history, obviously likes the whole 'bad boy' type. And of course, I think she finds a lot of similarities between Dexter and Wayne, so she's trying to return to what she sees as her glory days.

In this reference on the Dexter Wiki the rules are essentially all that you state above (in the simplest form). These are: Never get caught Never kill an innocent There are various hints in dialogue that there may be more rules but seeing as the code was never written down we may never know unless stated in the show. Looking further into it, it seems ...

He was very thorough at cleaning. This is from the very first crime scene, during the kill: And this is during the investigation: Dexter comments on this: "It's a very well organized crime scene. The assailant took his time. Cleaned up after himself." with a funny remark "Obviously doesn't have kids". Now, how exactly did he manage to clean the whole ...

In an interview with Executive Producer Scott Buck he explains that it is mentioned in a different episode that Dexter had an emergency life raft on the Slice of Life, implying that the raft is how Dexter got back to land. The full interview can be viewed on the Hollywood Reporter website.

I thought he said something about they only care where you are going not where you came from. So they will check you over numerous times to get in but to leave they don't really give much attention.

I've found information (Source) on the net containing salary ranges for "Blood Analsyts". A rookie can start off from a $40,000 mark A Senior (like Dexter) can earn anywhere from $80,000 to $160,000 In addition to this, Dexter sold his biological fathers' house in season 1, from which I would guess he would get at least $100,000 cash in hand. I also ...

Dexter did not plan on killing LaGuerta at all, actually. It was Debra that ended up striking the final blow, so to speak. When Dexter is getting rid of Estrada, it turns out to be a set-up by LaGuerta to catch him in the act. Hence the confrontation between the two in the police office. While LaGuerta is technically an innocent, she is viable to the ...

From the executive producer (Scott Buck) : Buck: It was a very dark shot, but it was a black orchid, which is meant to be a very ominous sign from Hannah that Dexter would understand what it meant.

It could be a lot of things. Here are a list of drugs and toxins that can cause seizures. http://professionals.epilepsy.com/page/table_drugs_induce.html More than likely it was some sort of poison as that was her area of expertise. Most any substances taken orally will have a delayed effect. In this case, I don't believe it was too long after. She most ...

Because Dexter now realizes that he is the one who is responsible for Harry's suicide, Deb's condition of being on life support, Rita's death, and Vogel's death. He can't bare it anymore. He now thinks that everyone he is comes into contact with will be destroyed the same way — that's why after killing The Brain Surgeon he stopped Deb's life support ...

According to the Dexter Wikia, Sonya left the show without any explanation. There was also no explanation as to why Angel Batista's younger sister Jamie took over from Sonya. The Wikia page for Sonya also adds Sonya unfortunately fell into the category of characters that disappear between seasons. This is likely due to their contract only requiring ...

I think they actually design all or may be few of the software used in Dexter. For example according to Wiki the search engine used by Dexter can be found here: netrangler

At some point during season five or six, Debra moves into the apartment which once belonged to a murder victim. She discovered the apartment when she attended the crime scene.

The "Make your own kind of music song" is Make Your Own Kind of Music performed by Mama Cass (A.K.A Cass Elliot). I believe the song playing when Dexter is throwing Zach's body into the water is a never before, or at least rarely played part of the Dexter Blood Theme by Daniel Licht.

Even in this era this kind of surprise death or near death condition comes. For the point of view of story gunshot wound survival was just to put up the suspense in viewers mind. Its already decided that she is going to die in the end. Even Jennifer Carpenter doesn't want to extend her role for a spin-off or any new season and want peace for Deb's ...
