DON'T MISS: "Dexter" - Prime time's favorite serial killer (Michael C. Hall) enters his eighth and final season and something's got to give. Will he finally get caught? Will he confess? Will he die? Oh, so many questions. The opener picks up six months after Dexter's sister, Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), killed Capt. Maria LaGuerta to protect his murderous secret. Now, she's an emotional wreck, and he's feeling responsible. 9 tonight, Showtime.
