Dexter, what would happen if Debra found out?

Postby sjorsman on Thu Jun 02, 2011 9:40 am

Last season Dexter's sister Debra almost found out his secret. But in the end she didn't see his face.

But what if she did? What would happen between Dexter and Debra?
Would she arrest him, or protect him?
And will it be any good for the show itself if one of the major characters found out?

Let me know what you think... :D

I have a feeling we might find out this season. Will be interesting to see what happens.

My guess is that she would probably try to protect him.

If it doesn't happen this season I'm ****. I don't know why they're so afraid of doing this. :(

What would happen IN Debra? No idea :P

If she ever found out though, I think first and foremost she'd try and change his mind and try for him to stop it. Afterwards she'd blame their father, and when she eventually realizes it's a part of him, she'd protect him, maybe help him track down some people. It'd be sucky though if they went the Chuck route in which he says he'll stop but secretly still does it anyway.

I think you are right, but I think the whole thing of Debra protecting her brother is a bit obvious.
And with Dexter you can never expect the obvious, so maybe we are in for a big surprise?

I really thought this would happen at the end of the last season, and something like this needs to happen this season desperately!

I imagine if Debra found on early in the season there would be a season of mental termoil for her, torn between protecting her family and upholding the law. I think the longer they leave this plot twist it will be less plausable for Deb to not arrest Dexter (as she becomes more mature, moral and a better cop each season).

I imagine it would go like this: She'd be a reck for a few days and wont tell anyone why. Dexter reasons with her and perhaps she even grows to help him for a while (almost like Harry did). Then, just like Harry, it becomes too much for her to handle so she hatches a plan to catch him in the act. Dexter latches on to her uncomfortableness, makes his final kill of the season - but Deb and the cops arrive too late and Dexter has vanished, and vacated his house etc. End of Season.

I think this question is directly related to the endgame of the series. I think that the reason that a major character hasn't found out yet is because it would mark the beginning of the end of the series (AND THAT'S NOT A BAD THING).

I LOVE Dexter, but even I can admit that it's time for the series to either totally reinvent itself (unlikely at this point) or bring the series to a close. I think it would be great for Debra to find out early on in season six to set up the "final" season. I think season six should be the last. I absolutely loved the first four seasons....and I thought that season four was far and away the best. But I could see it last season that the series was starting to fade.

Since I think that Debra finding out Dexter's secret would mark the beginning of the end of the series....unless of course she was killed somehow before she told anyone (Doakes!!!)...I am really curious as to how Dexter will end. There are really only 4 options....A: Dexter is killed B: Dexter is caught C: Dexter is found out but fleas D: Dexter is not found out and continues doing what he's always done (The Sopranos ending :lol: )

I agree with most of the folks on here. I think this season is time for Deb to find out. I could see Deb possibly becoming a Lumen-esque figure after she finds out. Maybe she finds out in episode 3 or 4 and the rest of this season would be about them dealing with her newfound knowledge and even her helping with a kill of a suspect that she lost somehow. Then the rest of the season would be Deb and Dex wrestling with the ethical/moral dilemma that is killing those worthy of being killed. Possibly the final episode would revolve around Deb and Dex almost getting caught, but getting away with it. The series would have to end with Dex getting killed while sacrificing himself so that Deb wouldn't get caught - and Deb arresting his killer - thus ending her tryst with vigilantism.

Personally, I don't think that I could buy into a Deb/Dexter killing team. That doesn't fit Deb's character IMHO.

do you not remember in season 2 dexter imagines what would happen if deb found out?

hehehe...

i wish she had found out in last season to be honest, i thought the writers chickened out of that...i could see her turning a blind eye to it once she realises dexter only kills deserving people (mostly)...cant see her joining him...
You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don't
owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to
put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission,
don't even start asking for theirs.

Yeah, Deb is not the killing type...other than self preservation. Honestly, the only way that I can see Deb turning a blind eye is if she got the whole story....Dexter witnessing his mother being butchered, everything with Harry, and the fact that he only kills people that truly deserve it. And only after truly doubting whether or not she should let him be would she make the agonizing decision to not stop him. Like, maybe Dexter could be completely honest with her and tell her about "Rudy" being his brother and that he was truly after Dexter that whole time instead of her.
