With only a few weeks until Dexter returns, it’s probably too late to cram in a rewatch. It’s fortunate that Michael C. Hall has put together a list of episodes that fans should watch before the series premieres. The episodes should provide more information about the infamous serial killer and how he came to be the man portrayed in the show.
