The new season of Dexter premieres on September 30th, and frankly, I cannot wait. I've been thinking about what's going to happen in the new season after that banger of a cliffhanger, and like every Dexter fan, I have a lot of character-driven speculations.

Below is a breakdown of theories for the new season. Please vote on what you think is going to happen with each character!
In the final episode of Season Six, Deb comes upon Dexter preparing to kill Travis Marshall. This was especially crazy because it happened right after she confessed her love for Dexter (remember, they are foster siblings), but it seemed like a long time coming for her to finally discover the true nature of her brother, and we can expect that one of the major storylines of Season Seven will be how she wrestles/reconciles with that reality, and in turn, how Dexter "handles" the situation. Keep in mind that in Season Five Debra saw two killers behind a screen, but let them carry on because she didn't disagree with what they were doing. If Dexter attempts or even considers killing her, it will make for some great television, as would a potential romantic relationship between the two!
What the heck is going on with this intern? He saved the prosthetic arm of the Ice Truck Killer, but hasn't necessarily treated it like a trophy. He was getting stranger with every episode, creating a serial killer video game, and sending little clues and gifts to Dexter just like Brian Moser used to. There are some strange connections between Louis and Brian. Many fans have speculated that Louis is a serial killer, or is becoming one, and that he will go after Dexter. That would certainly make the new season interesting!
The last season wasn't so good for Quinn, as Debra rejected his proposal. Many people are speculating that he will leave the Miami Metro Homicide Department to get away from the weird vibes with Debra and even Dexter for that matter. Angel Batista can't trust him as his partner anymore, his alcohol problem is only getting worse, and it feels like their is a lot of impending tension between him and the department.
While Jamie, the innocent younger sister of Angel, was babysitting Dexter's only child Harrison throughout the last season, she was getting oddly close with Louis, who would often stop by. The same fans who have been speculating that Louis is on his way to becoming a serial killer also think that Jamie will become his first victim. There doesn't appear to be any romance between them, so it's quite a clear connection.
