I began watching the 7th Season with low expectations. I became disappointed with Dexter after Season 4 as some of the murders became inplausable and I thought the series lacked the creativity and suspense of the first two seasons. The show's pattern of watching Dexter stalk other serial killers became too familiar with less attention focused on character development. In my experience, it is *character development* that makes a series like this so watchable. With Season 7, the show has restored itself to a level of viewership found in earlier seasons.

In Season 7, while Dexter's character continues to evolve, the show focuses more on Deb's character. Watching Deb and Dexter interact is fascinating - they both evolve in their relationship as each learns more about one another. As Deb learns more about Dexter, we watch with anticipation how she reacts as she battles her own demons. The evolution of Deb's character takes center stage in this season, a break in the series. Dexter's new nemesis - the head of a crime family played with charm and great intensity by Ray Stevenson - is far more complex than the killer in Season 6.

Yvonne Strahovski does a terrific job playing Hannah McKay - a mysterious and cunning character who has the rare opportunity of getting close enough to Dexter to earn some of his trust. One of the more philosophical questions this season poses is the cost/benefit of making yourself vulnerable in relationships. And Erik King makes a welcome and sometimes humorous return playing Doakes during flashbacks - the only person who was on to Dexter from the beginning.

A great show like Dexter takes the audience to a place it's never been before.

I have to admit I almost lost interest in the show after Season 5. Season 6 was pretty good I thought (Edward James Olmos in a villainous role was kind of fun and I thought he did a good job). But Season 7 has just been great and for so many reasons. First of all there are lots of very poignant jewels of wisdom in Dexter's reflections on life and these ring true even for those who are not serial killers. Second, they shifted the plot up in season 7 - it's not just Dexter against some new psycho, but rather Dexter in love with the new psycho, not to mention other interesting subplots, including one that develops in a big way and will lead us with great anticipation into the next season. This anticipation for the next season was something I didn't experience after season 5. But it's here in spades at the end of season 7! OK, and finally, the last reason I like this show is that it's often darkly humorous. Among other things, it's kind of funny bringing Sgt Doakes back into the picture - every time Doakes comes into the picture I just gotta laugh.. He's like a smaller version or Mr T, but on steroids!!! I really started enjoying this show once I accepted it for what it is - a show!! I don't demand perfect logic or beleivability in every scene, though I appreciate them when they're there.. but rather I am happy to enjoy the show in the same way I might enjoy a comic book. It has that quality about it, and it doesn't make it any the less enjoyable. Great screenplay writing in this season - very imaginative and creative and good on many levels. Now let's see how far they can push it! They've certainly crossed into new territory and seem to have backed themselves into a corner - well, that's what a good cliff-hanger's all about!

Dexter is my favorite tv series and this season 7 is absolutely the best ever!

First of all, Hannah McKay (played by gorgeous and playful Yvonne Strahovski of "Chuck") is the most exciting sexual interest for Dexter ever! Goodie-2-shoes was done seasons 1-4 by girlfriend-turned-wife Rita (played by Julie Benz) with the relationship being mainly focused on Dexter having a cover for his true self which he hid from his family. He was able to share more of his "dark passenger" with Lumen (played by Julia Stiles) in Season 5 which is by far my second favorite season after this season 7 with Dexter's sexual encounters with an experienced killer.

I also love the development of Dexter's adopted sister and current boss Debra (played by Jennifer Carpenter) as she learns her adopted brother is a serial killer (in season 6 cliff-hanger ending) and begins her processing of this startling information this season 7. Other law enforcement characters of the fictional Miami Metro Police Department (based on the real life Miami-Dade Police Department) must also make choices in how to deal with law enforcement / law breaking.

While the writing of season 6 was too philosophical IMO for any tv drama series, the writing of this series over-all is so creative and characters are so forthrightly portrayed. Also the nemesis in season 6 seemed more annoying than dangerous and challenging, yet season 7's nemesis is more dangerous than ever with the head of a Ukrainian crime syndicate (played by all-so-handsome and debonair Ray Stevenson) targeting Dexter for revenge. Will Stevenson surpass the bar set by John Lithgow in season 4?

Michael C Hall continues with outstanding acting beyond imagination.
