After his wife's murder in the Season 4 finale of Dexter, Dexter Morgan starts his new season under suspicion in her death. Fortunately, he has an alibi - but it brings another set of problems: He was busy chopping up the Trinity killer when Rita died.
"The spouse is always the first person that people look to, but he does potentially have another alibi," star and executive producer Michael C. Hall said of the new season at a Comic-Con panel Thursday.
The panel included the first footage from Season 5, which opens (spoiler alert) just moments after Dexter discovers his wife dead in a tub full of blood.
"We want to process this huge event, which is almost like a second origin story," executive producer Chip Johannessen said. "This is something he brought on himself. We don't continue the facts of Season 4 for very long, but the set of events that he brought upon himself very much permeate Season 5."
Adds Hall: "He's motivated by a desire to make amends for that even if he doesn't consciously know it. He needs to make things right, even if it feels impossible."
Rita's death will not only cause Dexter to feel guilt for the first time, but make him a single parent to baby Harrison and stepchildren Astor and Cody.
