Will Dexter Swap Sibling Sex For Serial Killing?

Kick them nasty thoughts.
Look, we've loved Dexter from the very first episode. We love feeling justified in rooting for a serial killer. We love its quirky supporting characters, especially that horndog Masuka. We even love laughing at its sad attempts to recreate the Miami experience. (Remember the time Dexter visited the sex offender squatters' village?) But especially, we've loved the fiercely loyal relationship between Dexter and his sister Deb.

But platonically, y'know? We didn't love it love it.

As Sunday's season finale draws near, however, it seems like Dexter's writers have other plans. As if season six didn't already have its share of jaw-droppers with all the Doomsday Killer madness, we now have a potential sibling-on-sibling romance to simmer on the brainpan.

In Sunday's episode, Debra Morgan's therapist suggests that Deb might have romantic feelings for her adoptive brother Dexter. Whether or not the accusation is correct, or if perhaps the therapist wrongfully manipulated Deb, the seed has irrevocably been planted. Deb's inner crisis was crystallized with an awkward dream sequence in which brother and sister kiss over Chinese takeout. Not exactly romance.

In the very first episode of the the series, Dexter explained, "If I could have feelings for anyone, I'd have them for Deb." Six seasons later, this comment is starting to seem like a crooked statement of foreshadowing.

On the eve of the season finale, what do you think of the apparently "sudden" sexual tension between Deb and Dexter?

I want Dex and Deb to get together! They're not fucking related.

Who in the world is better for Dexter than Deb? And vice versa. They love each other so much and protect each other through everything.

If anyone deserves dex it's deb, I just absolutely love Deb. She's the hottest to appear on the show and she clearly has the best dialogue. Having said that, hes her brother!!! She should go after the other dark passenger, her right hand new hire at Miami metro...cause she can still choose a brother, just not her brother.

they're also actually blood related - doesn't dexter find out at some point that harry was his biological father because he'd had an affair with dexter's mother, the informant? ice truck killer is dexter's half brother on the maternal side, but deb and dex are half-siblings on the paternal side... it's just that deb doesn't know that (dex does). right?

i know Dexter is a killer, and we are enjoying that darkness, but no matter how you look at it Dexter and Deb are siblings. the only way to fix this right now is for them to confront these feelings and put them to rest... and kill the fool who put those ideas in her head

@sj000  no, dexter finds out about the affair, but joseph driscoll was his real father. harry was debra's father. so no they are not blood related

That dead guy whose house Dexter visited in episode 1x09 was his actual biological father. He had a paternity test done to confirm it.

actually i'm googling everywhere and can't find anything about that. maybe i dreamed it, like that kiss. i could've sworn that was true though!

No, you are correct. I remember this as well. But I can't remember if Dexter was just theorizing about it, or if he knew for sure. It definitely came up in a previous episode though, so unless we both had the same dream, we're not going crazy.
