Showtime, 'Dexter' Bosses Take Extreme Measures Against Season 4 Finale Spoilers

The final episode of Dexter season 4 is set to air this upcoming Sunday at 9 PM on Showtime. The episode is titled "The Getaway," and looks poised to bring to a head the escalating conflict between our protagonist serial killer and his current nemesis, the Trinity Killer, played by guest John Lithgow. Ratings have been way up for the season, and anticipation is mounting for fans in these final days as they speculate on the impending outcome of what will surely be an explosive showdown between two murderous foes. Further proof that next week's episode will blow the minds of Dexter fans: the network and show heads are being even more cautious than usual to protect any spoilers or footage of the finale from leaking before airtime. Apparently a twist is coming in the episode that is so unexpected and massive that it will change the entire series as we know it. And that's saying a lot for Dexter. Shocking plot developments and sudden twists are the show's bread and butter. The extreme measures of secrecy are proof enough that this rumor has some weight to it. Says Korbi of Zap2It: "We're told non-disclosure agreements were signed by everyone on staff and at the network, decoy scripts were drafted and disseminated, each and every screener was watermarked and sets were closed to anyone that didn't absolutely have to be around during shooting." In an interview after the penultimate episode of season 4 aired, titled "Hello, Dexter Morgan," head writer and executive producer Clyde Phillips kept tight-lipped about "The Getaway," except to tease viewers that the conclusion will "blow the top of your head off." Could that be a hint at the impending demise of a major character--namely the Trinity Killer? Of course, Phillips wouldn't say. "It's the most exciting episode we've ever done," said Phillips. "And we've done some pretty amazing stuff." Phillips also revealed that he personally took home the footage of next week's final scene and destroyed it, as yet another measure against any spoilers making their way to the web before Sunday. Watch the full hour-long interview with Phillips at Sho.com, in which he answers fans' questions, responds to theories, talks about his creative process in crafting the series, and reveals a few inadvertent hints about the finale... if you listen carefully. Fascinating stuff. Source Here

Jennifer Carpenter on Dexter Season Finale: Holy $hit!

The way Jennifer Carpenter talks about the sesaon four finale of Dexter, it will be a disappointment if the TV landscape isn't altered forever after December 12. The actress that plays Deb is already on record as saying that "everything changes" at the conclusion of this season. But she went even further in her hype this week. Speaking to E! News, Carpenter addressed fans and said: "All the time you put in [episodes] one through 11 watching the show, you'll be glad that you did in 12. Everybody matters in the end. Everybody matters. We all had to be there to shoot the finale." So, what exactly can viewers expect? Carpenter was mum on specific spoilers, but did open up more in the interview... On how the finale leads into season five: "This season it ended and everybody said, 'Well, what can't we do next year?' I know the mold is sort of breaking and that's an exciting thing. I think people are kind of getting comfortable sitting in their living rooms with a serial killer, and my hope is to make him more dangerous." On Deb discovering Dexter's mom: "They've been sort of unraveling that cord for four years now, so I can't say that anything is finished. That's sort of the brilliance of the finale and the twisted psyche of our writers. It's sort of epic and vast, and it all counts." Source Here
