'Dexter' exclusive photo: Are Deb and Dex in even more danger?

"Dexter" finally returns Sunday! Its eighth and final season is guaranteed to be a wild ride, but the final destination -- for Dex and everyone he cares about -- is anyone's guess.

Quick refresher from last year's finale: Deb killed Captain LaGuerta rather than let their boss arrest Dexter for the Bay Harbor Butcher (etc.) killings.

Fast-forward six months, and -- spoiler alert! -- Deb has quit the force and is trying to anesthetize her tortured conscience with booze, drugs and sex. The last person in the world she wants to see is the brother who led her to this very dark and desperate place.

Of course the Morgan siblings must reunite sometime. And by the looks of this picture from the premiere, exclusive to TODAY.com, it's not a cause for celebration.

Looks like Dexter (Michael C. Hall) and Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) are in for an unpleasant surprise in the season premiere.

What could possibly be provoking Deb's shock and her brother's consternation? Did Harrison spill his milk, or are they in more danger than ever?

To find out, tune in to "Dexter" Sunday at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
