Latest From Ask Ausiello - Dexter Season 6 Scoop

Latest from TV Line's Michael Ausiello. Click the link below to read new spoilers about the first 3 episodes of season 6 (6.01, 6.02, 6.03)...

Question: Dexter returns in less than a week! I think you know where I’m going with this, Aus… —Amber
Ausiello: Either you want me to loan you my DVD of the first three episodes or… you want scoop. I’m guessing it’s the latter. A pivotal character finds out about Dexter’s secret blood sample stash in Episode 2. Also, after watching the first three episodes, I now understand why Jennifer Carpenter was so excited about this season. There’s a lot happening for Deb, both personally (a *r******!) and professionally (a *r***t**n). And Carpenter is really delivering the goods.

Question: Do you have any scoop on Dexter for the drooling masses? —Kevin
Ausiello: One of the most buzzworthy moments of the aforementioned Oct. 2 premiere occurs before the episode even begins. The opener is preceded by a roughly four-minute recap of the show’s first five seasons. Almost every major storyline and character is revisited in the mini-retrospective, with the exception of Rita. While her name is dropped a few times, we never actually see Julie Benz — and the omission is glaring. Think about it: How do you adequately summarize all that is and was Dexter without showing things like his marriage to Rita, the birth of his son and, most importantly, the death of Rita at the hands of Trinity! (The clipfest does show Dexter entering the blood-soaked bathroom, but we only see him take Harrison into his arms; Rita’s lifeless body is MIA.) Faster than you can say “Whatchoo Talkin’ ‘Bout Willis,” I snooped around and found out that since Benz is no longer on the show, Showtime (which declined to comment) would’ve needed Benz’ permission before using footage of Rita — a request Benz’s camp claims was never made. “Julie was not asked to be a part of the recap,” her rep tells TVLine, “but would have happily participated had Showtime reached out.” Odd.

  1. Proposal and promotion.....oops spoiled.

  2. I was surprised that they did not use one single scene of Julie Benz in the 4-min recap. No Rudy or Doakes, either. Miguel, Trinity, and Lumen had quite a few though.

  3. harrison finds the blood slides

  4. this picture of Michael C. Hall looks like a wax model.
