Dexter: New Blood Episode 1 Spoilers

The first episode of ‘Dexter: New Blood’ is titled ‘Cold Snap.’ It is set roughly ten years after Dexter Morgan fakes his death and moves away from Miami. He has since moved to the small town of Iron Lake, and we will learn more about his place in the close-knit community. Dexter will be living under the assumed identity of Jim Lindsay, with none of the townsfolk aware of his past. We will learn that he works as a clerk at a local shop and has a romantic relationship with the town’s police chief, Angela.

It is likely that Dexter is still struggling to keep his “dark passenger” persona under control. A mysterious stranger’s entry into Dexter’s life could force the former serial killer to give into his homicidal urges. The stranger might take up an interest in Dexter’s past and threaten to uncover his secret. In the debut episode, Dexter is also likely to reunite with his son, Harrison.
