Dexter @ Comic-Con: Fan Favorites, Past and Present, Return for a Bloody-Awesome Farewell

Jul 18 2013, 11:22pm CDT | by

Michael C. Hall & Co. hit the Comic-Con stage on Thursday night for Dexter‘s final, fan-filled hurrah — and they brought along a surprise friend or Trinity three!

A handful of former Dexter faves — including Julie Benz, Lauren Velez and Erik King — surprised the crowd by “crashing” the panel, making the Showtime saga’s swan-song Con showing one to remember.

Following two tear-inducing video packages – a look-back with the cast, and one featuring Dexter’s greatest kills – Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, Desmond Harrington, David Zayas, Aimee Garcia, Yvonne Strahovski and executive producers Sara Colleton, Scott Buck, Manny Coto and Clyde Phillips, as well as the aforementioned returness, reminisced about seasons passed and weighed in (a bit) on what’s to come.

TRINITY LIVES | John Lithgow was unable to make it to the farewell panel, but he did send a recorded message to fans. His sentiments, for starters: “Hello Dexter Morgan… fans.” The actor joked that he would have loved to be there, “but as you know, I’m dead.” More seriously, Lithgow relayed: “You’ve been such extraordinary fans, and the people who’ve made it such a hit.“

DEATH BECOMES HER | In other “Beyond the Grave” news, Velez gave attendees a glimpse into her psyche during the days leading up to LaGuerta’s death. “You want to do you best and honor the character,” she shared. “The writing was so intense and so beautiful; it was such a gorgeous opus… so beautifully rounded, I couldn’t wait to do it. I wanted to live it, to taste it, to be in it as much as I could. It was hard knowing it would be the last one, but it wasn’t hard doing the work. I loved doing the work.” King, for his part, is still “blown away by the fact that I was on the show for two years and it feels like I’ve been living on the show… I don’t even think [Doakes is] dead.”

DEATH BECOMES HER, TOO? | Without revealing Deb’s ultimate fate, Carpenter echoed statements from an earlier interview, in which she said she hoped Deb would die. “I meant what I said: I wanted her and want her to die,” she laughed. “But as an actor. It’s because I love her. It’s a little like how Dexter treats his victims: I want her to go to the bottom of the abyss…Instead of [me] calling [showrunner] Scott Buck [eight years from now], asking him to write me a scene [where] she’s happy.”

SHE’S BAAACK | Did Strahovski let the cat surrounding Hanna’s return out of the bag? When asked about her big comeback, the Aussie teased, “We don’t know if her revenge…” – before stopping short to correct herself — …her motivation is going to be,” she laughed. “I didn’t give anything away! We don’t know if it’s going to be for revenge or love.“

SPIN-OFF SPOOF | “In 25 years, there’s going to be a new series called Harrison,” Hall playfully teased. “And Dexter will have died, and [he’s] going to be his dead, internalized father.”

NUDIE NEWBIE | No explanation needed: “I’m just so honored to get to explore Jamie’s various… naked sides,” new series regular Garcia joked of her final-season promotion.

ONE LAST GOODBYE | In closing the panel, Hall offered a hearty thank you to fans. “Just as you all waited in line and are here for us, we have been here for you and we are here because of you. We all thank you so much.”
