Dexter: New Blood E03 Preview: 2021 Catches Up with Dexter Morgan

After learning some heartbreaking news about Hannah McKay, Dexter (Michael C. Hall) found himself back in some very familiar territory. Yup, someone's "Dark Passenger" has returned from hibernation to take out a very, very bad man. But since this is Dexter's luck we're talking about, it would only make sense that Matt Caldwell (Steve M. Robertson) would be the son of area bigwig Kurt Caldwell (Clancy Brown)- and Kurt isn't quite ready to end the investigation. Meanwhile, a separate serial killer storyline played out in a very dark & twisted way. And that was just in the second episode of Showtime's Dexter: New Blood, so you can only imagine what lies ahead in this weekend's "Smoke Signals." Well, you don't actually have to imagine since we have preview images, an overview, and a promo to help you out. From Dexter looking to bond with Harrison (Jack Alcott) to a new Iron Lake arrival who's about to triple our hero's stress levels, here's a look at what's ahead:
