While his sister/co-worker Lt. Debra Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter) now knows about his secret serial-killing alter ego, Miami Metro blood spatter analyst Dexter Morgan’s (Michael C. Hall) life hasn’t gotten any less complicated as the seventh season of the Showtime drama “Dexter” goes along.

And that’s a good thing, because watching Dexter work his way out of seemingly impossible predicaments continues to make this show completely compelling.

One such quandary Dexter’s in the middle of in this stage of the season is how to get rid of a Ukrainian mobster who wants to get rid of him.

Dexter has also found the newest victim to fulfill the requirements of his killing code, Hannah McKay (Yvonne Strahovski), an accomplice to serial killer Wayne Randall (Daniel Buran). Hannah was given immunity to prosecution for her assistance in the case against Randall, and (falsely) claimed he alone was behind all of the crimes.

Meanwhile, Quinn’s (Desmond Harrington) relationship with Nadia (Katia Winter) affects a decision he makes involving the Ukrainian mob, and Batista (David Zayas) considers retiring and opening a restaurant.

In this week’s upcoming episode “Chemistry,” Dexter and Hannah’s relationship, which has been provocative from the minute they met, twists and turns, and when a true crime novelist writing a book on Hannah gets caught in the middle of these two, you know there’s trouble ahead.

And, although it looks like Deb has talked Capt. LaGuerta (Lauren Vélez) into letting go of her hunch that Sgt. Doakes wasn’t the Bay Harbor Butcher, it proves difficult for LaGuerta to give up on her theory on the case.

Finally, to top it all off in this episode, Deb winds up making a request of Dexter you never thought she’d make.

“Dexter” airs at 8 p.m. Sundays on Showtime.
