As I’ve mentioned before, this is my fourth year at Comic-Con and all day I found myself reflecting back. My first and last events were the same as that first year: The Twilight Saga and “Dexter“. For “Dexter”, I clearly remember the first question of the press panel: “So why are you here?”
I don’t know who asked it, but it was in a tone that was not friendly or even sarcastic. It was challenging the fact that this show and many others were realizing Comic-Con is a great place to promote their show/film. Everyone in the room was taken by surprise and as you can imagine, it made for a very awkward panel with dotted silence.
Boy, what a difference four years make. From the loud gasps after they showed the exclusive clip of the first two minutes of the season premiere, to the cheers when the cast walked on stage, there is no question of why “Dexter” is at Comic-Con. It’s a fan favorite. I even saw someone dressed as our favorite serial killer. Throughout the panel, they were very elusive about the fate of Deb and the role of Yvonne Strahovski, but they did let it slip that her name is Hannah. All I can say is save the date for the premiere– September 30th–or at the very least set your DVR.
I would really, really love to tell you more about the clip but I am afraid that I might give something away and I will be hunted down. Spoiler alert!!!
