OMG! Is Dexter actually wrapping up its third season this weekend?
The time went by so quickly, with Dexter pretty much throwing his serial killing code out the window, getting girlfriend Rita preggers and making new friends he feels comfortable enough to kill with!
I can barely hold my breath for the finale on Sunday, so I called up series star Lauren Velez, who plays Lt. Maria LaGuerta, to get a little scoop on what to expect in the explosive season ender. (I’m still recovering for the finale epi of season two!)
She also gave me a peek inside Maria’s head when it comes to men (yeah, it’s never pretty!).
Dexter has really tossed the rules out the window this season, so to speak.
Well, he and Rita are getting married. She’s hormonal and pregnant and he’s dealing with his dual life even more so now. But Dexter will come to his senses with his code as he commits to having his life with Rita.
How does Maria feel about her failed relationship with D.A. Miguel Prado?
They were involved at the police academy, but Maria is ambitious by nature and wanted something different. They parted ways, and she’s regretted it. She’s been revisiting her past, and it came up again for a quick minute.
Is Maria still grieving over Sgt. James Doakes death?
He was more than her love interest. With Doakes, he was the only person who absolutely understood her and saw her warts. He was the epitome of being the best friend she could have ever had. They knew each other’s secrets. Maria isn’t somebody who makes friends easily. Because she lost him, she tried to make friends with defense attorney Ellen Wolfe, who is now gone too. With new people, Maria comes out fighting. She came to the U.S. by herself on a boat as a child and had to create, on her own, a completely new life for herself. That fighting quality is also her downfall.
What would Maria do if she learned that Dexter was the real killer?
I think she would take him down.
What would you like to see happen in season four?
I think the theme for next season season should be women on top!
Catch Dexter, season fnale, Sunday, Dec. 14 at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
