What happened on ‘Dexter: New Blood’ so far
When Dexter: New Blood begins, it’s been almost a decade since Dexter fled Miami and faked his death, after leaving his son and girlfriend behind. He’s known in Iron Lake as Jim Lindsay, a sales clerk at a hunting supplies store who happens to be dating the police chief, Angela Bishop.
Dexter has gone the entire time without killing, but he struggles to control his dark passenger after learning Matt, a spoiled and entitled kid, killed five and got off without consequences. He eventually caves at the same time Harrison Morgan shows up and reminds him of who he is, killing Matt and hiding his body not far from his cabin.
Dexter: New Blood Episode 2 sees Dexter trying to act normal and ensure Matt’s body is not found. He gets police to call off their search after making it look like Matt fled town after shooting a white buck illegally, but Matt’s father, Kurt, shows up and convinces them to resume the investigation.

As police keep searching for Matt, Dexter teases them in his head. He’s confident until certain findings seemingly lead police to suspect foul play in Matt’s disappearance. Kurt angrily demands answers regarding his son, leaving Dexter squirming. It comes as Harrison enrolls in a local school and as the missing girl from the latest episode breaks away from her kidnapper. Watch the clip, below.
Eight episodes are left
There’s a total of 10 episodes in the revival, which arrived on Nov. 7 — almost a decade after Dexter ended its eight-season run on Showtime. It’s unclear if there will be more, but showrunner Clyde Phillips hasn’t ruled out the possibility of another season.
“All I can say is, on this show, we never say never,” he told Screen Rant.
“Had I gotten my wish in season 8, had they ended it the way I wanted to, we wouldn’t be talking to each other right now,” he continued, referring to his initial plan to have Dexter arrested and put to death in the Dexter series finale. “So, anything’s possible. But the ending will be, as I said at Comic-Con, ‘surprising,’ ‘inevitable,’ and ‘will blow up the internet.'”
