In Season 8 episode 3, “What’s Eating Dexter Morgan?” viewers are led down a dark spiral of understanding as Dexter finally begins to realize that his so-called “love” for his sister Deborah is only a reflection of his own selfish needs. Deb is straight up losing her mind to Dexter’s secrets, which we all knew was going to happen eventually, but if you’re like me, you don’t want Deb’s conscience to mess with Dexter’s serial killing ways quite yet. Who knew a crazed psychopath could be so lovable? Vogel interprets Dexter’s relationship with Deb as completely focused on what she can do for him, and, since we know Dexter is a killer and has screwed up Deb pretty bad, there’s really no arguing with that conclusion.
