Fed up with TV series and auteur cinema, Emilie Semiramoth does not also hide her penchant for pop culture in all its eccentricities. From the bromance between Spock and Captain Kirk in Star Trek to the disillusionment of Lynch’s Mulholland Drive, she ignores gender boundaries.

Season 9 of Dexter, titled New Blood, is revealed a little more. After a first image of Dexter’s son, we now learn to what extent will be the return of Debra, played by Jennifer Carpenter. She will be his Dark Passenger!

More exciting news for Dexter fans! Jennifer Carpenter will make her comeback as Debra Morgan in the sequel / reboot, Dexter: New Blood. But she does not quite resume her role since Debra dies in the last episode of season 8. She becomes Dexter’s Dark Passenger (“the black passenger” in French).

What does this mean for Harry (James Remar), Dexter’s late father, who was the voice in the mind of the serial killer? “I love the concept of the Dark Passenger and being invited into Dexter’s psyche“, explained Jennifer Carpenter Tuesday during the presentation of the series to the American press.

I sometimes feel like the black passenger is almost directly behind the wheel and it was an opportunity to not just be an angel or devil on his shoulder, but to steer the steering wheel left or right against his will. And to manipulate it, to pilot it, to manhandle it, to save it. I felt like it was something completely different from some kind of phantom entity.

Michael C. Hall added his analysis of this new situation: “Harry was like Dexter’s pole star with a constant point of view, while Deb, in this context, lands everywhere. In this, she is an internalized character for Dexter who represents how far he’s come, in both a positive and a negative sense. He’s messed up inside and without a compass in a way, if at all he would like to have one.

But according to Clyde Philips, the historic showrunner of Dexter’s first four seasons, Debra represents “more than the Dark Passenger“:”She represents a corner of Dexter’s mind that we all have in our heads that says: ‘Hey, wait a minute, if you do that then there will be consequences.’ ”

Showtime unveiled a featurette, on its Twitter account, which shows some brief footage of Debra in her new role as Dark Passenger with testimonials from Jennifer Carpenter, Michael C. Hall and Clyde Philips:
