What will set Dexter: New Blood Season 1, Episode 8 apart from the rest?
To begin with, it will be quite risky for Dexter Morgan. He prefers to be on the offensive, but he's about to find himself in a situation where his own life is on the line.
Dexter: New Blood Season 1, Episode 8 Spoilers
Dexter's past victim, the dealer from Episode 5 who supplied fentanyl and put Harrison in the hospital, is being questioned by Angela in a new promo released by Showtime for Dexter: New Blood Episode 8. Before being interrupted by Logan, he admits that Dexter inserted a needle into his neck.
Meanwhile, Dexter is in a bind, his wrists bound behind his back as he limps through the woods after being caught by Kurt's thug, Elric Kane. Harrison is also definitely continuing to contact Kurt, who has been released and is further fostering his dark side.
The latest New Blood episode brought answers to several long-held questions, and began to tie together the inter-generational repercussions of both Dexter and Kurt's acts.
For example, it's been proven that a young Kurt was guilty for Iris' death decades ago, after being told that he witnessed his father's heinous crimes. Harrison confronts Dexter, continuing the theme of father-son conflict. He breaks out in rage as he discloses that he vividly remembers his mother's death (to the point where he recognizes the Trinity Killer, played by John Lithgow in a cameo appearance) and explains his desire to harm others.
With all of these new details, it'll be interesting to see where Dexter: New Blood goes from here. Now that Dexter is aware about Harrison, it's unclear how the murderer will deal with his son's desires, especially because he has a connection to the criminal and vicious Kurt.
With Dexter kidnapped, Harrison is likely to get caught up in the impending struggle teased in this latest promo. Angela may possibly come across more information regarding Dexter, of whom she is already wary.
Dexter: New Blood Season 1, Episode 8 Air Date
Unfair Game, the title of the upcoming episode, will air Sunday, Dec. 26.
There is a slew of other series, including some on premium cable, that isn't airing during the holidays. That’s not happening with the Michael C. Hall series. It only makes sense for Showtime to keep it going because they don't worry about live ratings (and also because the story is set around Christmas).
