‘Dexter: New Blood’: What Role Will Harrison Play in the Series?

by Jonathan Howard

Things are getting serious already in Iron Lake. Dexter: New Blood is getting things started quickly. Also, what’s up with Harrison? There are secrets that we have not seen yet. Dexter’s son seems to be as smart as his father.

When Harrison was left by his father in the hands of Hannah McKay, they were heading down to South America. Now, he pops up in upstate New York after tracking his father down. McKay was killed and he has seemingly been on his own since then. He is also catching on to his dad’s secretive personality. So, Dexter, or Jim Lindsay, needs to be careful how he approaches the situation. I have a feeling hiding things is just going to lead to more problems.

Clearly, Harrison has past trauma. With an origin story almost as dark as his own father’s, there is no telling what dark thoughts could reside in his head. When he was talking with some other teenagers, Harrison brought up a past addiction of his. While we don’t know what that is exactly, surely we will find out soon enough in Dexter: New Blood. Does he have a dark passenger as well?

Here is the synopsis for the fourth episode of the season, titled H is for Hero:

“The father of the person whom Dexter killed makes a surprising announcement which could prove to be a huge problem for Dexter. Meanwhile, Dexter discovers Harrison was involved in a serious incident at the high school. And now this young newcomer is considered a hero to the entire town. Angela digs deeper into a missing persons case.”

Dexter: New Blood continues and there are many more twists and turns to be revealed. If Jim’s girlfriend keeps up her good investigation skills, it could spell trouble.
