I can’t remember the last time I’ve been this excited about a TV series. Last week’s episode was a huge cliff hanger, and the internet is buzzing with speculation about how the situation with “Trinity” (or is it the-serial-killer-formerly-known-as-Trinity?) will resolve. If you’re anything like me, you’re looking for whatever small tidbit you can find to get you through the last remaining days until what is sure to be an absolutely explosive season finale.
I decided to throw all the resources I’ve found together in one place, and include a bullet list for everyone detailing what we know about the season finale so far. If anyone out there has anything to add to this list, please post it in the comments section and it will be quickly updated.
Spoilers follow. Here’s what we know so far:
- The season finale (season 4, episode 12) is titled “The Getaway”
- Deb discovers who Dexter’s mother really is and that Dexter is related to the “Ice Truck Killer”
- Dexter and Trinity agree to a truce of sorts (at least in appearance)
- The police become aware of Trinity’s true identity
- Trinity has an urgent need for money and demands whatever he can get from his family
- The SWAT team raids Trinity’s home
- Dexter and Trinity face off on a least two separate occasions, struggling with one another
- A “series changing” surprise is in store for fans in this episode
As longtime fans of the series know, there’s a history of leaks when it comes to the season premier and the season finale of Dexter. Apparently the network has took many precautions to ensure that this does not occur for “The Getaway”, but there’s always the possibility that the episode will be released unofficially ahead of schedule. I’ll be surprised, actually if it is not leaked before the weekend.
Watch the official promo here:
If you haven’t yet caught up on Season 4, now is the time to do it. You’re not going to want to miss this episode or be left out of the loop.
