New Blood Showrunner: Dexter Would've Paid for His Crimes; E02 Preview

We never thought when the show originally ended that in 2021 we would be writing up previews for new episodes of Showtime's Dexter, but that's one of the things we love about covering television- where you can truly never say "never." That's right, Michael C. Hall's Dexter Morgan is officially back- but if Dexter: New Blood showrunner & writer Clyde Phillips had pitched his personal ending to the original show, well… let's just say that "New Blood" wouldn't be happening. Speaking with EW, Phillips was asked how he would've wrapped the series known a little too much for its controversial ending. "My personal ending for the show was that he was going to be executed for his crimes," Phillips stated matter-of-factly. "He's lying on the table and outside the window are all the people he's killed. That was just in my own head. I never pitched that to anybody." Suddenly, the ending that hit our screens doesn't seem quite as bad anymore… just kidding. It's still bad. Now here's a look at some images from the series, followed by a look at this Sunday's next chapter.
