'Dexter's' deadly girlfriend back for season eight

Yvonne Strahovski is returning for "Dexter's" eighth (and probably final) season this summer, Showtime confirmed to TODAY.com.

This is great news for fans of the seductive serial killer who found a soul mate in Dexter (Michael C. Hall). (But remember, kids, serial killing is never OK.)

With such a perfect pairing, what could possibly go wrong? A lot, as it turned out! To briefly recap, Dex's sister Deb got jealous (ew), Hannah poisoned her, Dexter turned her in to the cops, she poisoned herself, and then escaped from prison.


At least Dexter got to enjoy a passionate farewell kiss with his ladylove -- until she bit down and bloodied his lip. (Seriously, attagirl!)

We last saw Hannah leaving an enigmatic black orchid on her ex-boyfriend's doorstep. What does it mean? Guess we'll find out  when "Dexter" returns Sunday, June 30 on Showtime.

Are you glad Hannah is coming back? What do you think this means for Dexter? Share your theories on our Facebook page!
