Jennifer Carpenter Spills More About Season Four of Dexter

by at . Comments

In real life, Jennifer Carpenter is married to Michael C. Hall.

In fake life, the couple stars together on Dexter, as Hall portrays the show's serial-killing title character and Carpenter takes on the role of his unsuspecting step-sister, Deb.

As we inch closer to the season four premiere of this Showtime hit (scheduled to air on September 27), Carpenter was asked by E! News about the season's main storyline: the appearance of a character known as "the Trinity Killer," played by John Lithgow.

"Lithgow is a teddy bear," Carpenter said. "I think that's part of the fun of the story: how well do you know people you spend time with? It's about how we judge people so quickly and don't really know what they're capable of."

The actress, of course, is talking about the community's reaction to Lithgow's character. But she could just as easily be referring to Deb's take on Dexter.

Dexter Quotes

I love Halloween. The one time of year when everyone wears a mask... not just me. People think it's fun to pretend you're a monster. Me, I spend my life pretending I'm not. Brother, friend, boyfriend - All part of my costume collection. Some people might call me a fraud. Let's see if it will fit. I prefer to think of myself as a master of disguise.
