Exclusive: Original Title for the First Season Finale

As we know it, "Born Free" was the perfect title for the first season finale (which stills serves as a paradigm of Dexter's ability to produce excessively-compelling television). Yet, the script was initially conceived with a title that made practically no sense in relation to the episode unless it was tied into a very different early version of the script. As a DexterCorner/Dexter Daily exclusive, we have a source with an original copy of the October 12, 2006 script for "Episode 112."

Later going on to air in December of the same year, "Born Free" could have been broadcast as the ominously-titled "Black Heart Optional." We see no connection between that title and the final episode, which either means there are deleted scenes locked away somewhere or the writers were going for a more abstract meaning.
