Last season's cliffhanger finale of Dexter left us with our collective jaws on the floor, so it's safe to say we've been clamoring for this season to finally get started. Tonight's premiere didn't disappoint and reeled us right back in.

RITA'S DEAD! EEK! Murdered by the Trinity Killer (John Lithgow) in his final act. Alright, now you're all up to date. So wrong. So crazy. So many questions running rampant before the season starts: How will Dexter move on without his doting wife? Can a serial killer function as a single father?

Ooooh. How's your face, douche? There's no better way to come to terms with your grief than by caving in some carny's skull. And how about that wail Dexter let out? Clearly he's dealing with some major issues. Where will he go from here? I guess you'll just have to tune in and find out. See you next week.
