Taking a risk, our anti-hero called Deb to the scene of the crime and told her that not only was Speltzer gone, but that he had killed him.
Her response was not one of anger or fear, as was the case with a similar conversation in the season premiere, but rather the interaction went pretty smoothly: TVLine spoke with Jennifer Carpenter about the possibility of a new outlook for Deb and why that final scene played as a seduction of sorts.
After witnessing the lieutenant’s devastation upon learning that incarcerated baddie Ray Speltzer had been set free, Dex took matters into his own hands and — following quite the fight — offed the killer.
Regardless of what really happened, divorce fucking sucks, but these two might have the best celebrity divorce of all time.
At the Paley Fest “Our marriage didn't look like anyone else's, and our divorce didn't either, so…I said it before, just because the marriage ended doesn't mean the love did,” Carpenter replied, her voice breaking. It's an awkward thing to talk about your personal life in front of a bunch of strangers, but there's nothing but love and respect between us.
And who is really responsible for Deb’s profanity-laden, hilarious one-liners?
Where do you see Debra as we near the end of this season versus where she was a year ago?
Carpenter definitely felt Deb had a lighter spirit this year.“John Lithgow‘s year [Season 4] was the season of grieving, and it was really heavy to play and to come home with, so I felt a little release because [Season 5] was a new chapter in a new book.
