What did you think of last night's Dexter premiere? Did you, like me, think the religious theme and the additions of Edward James Olmos and Colin Hanks as a pair of spirituality-inspired killers are good omens for the rest of the season? Or were you so distracted by Dexter's terrible dancing and that very generous naked woman (talk about a blast from the past! ... sorry) at his high school reunion that "Those Kinds of Things" felt more silly than scary?

Either way, I think you'll want to see these clips from next Sunday's Dexter episode, 'Once Upon a Time...', which are definitely on the scarier end of the spectrum. 

Next Time, on Dexter...
What do Brother Sam, Professor Gellar and Travis Marshall have in common? I have no idea. I'd be content just finding out what exactly they're all up to.

Clip 1: "The Good Shepherd"
Brother Sam might not be as saved as he wants people to think. And Dexter's on to him.

Clip 2: "I Am Worthy"
Travis sins, Professor Gellar saves. And neither seems very sane. 

What do you think is going on with these three? Professor Gellar and Travis are clearly on some sort of mission from God (or so they believe?), but what does that have to do with killing fruit vendors and stuffing them with snakes? Right now they seem like an insane human version of Pinky and the Brain, but there's got to be a deeper meaning to their madness. Meanwhile, it seems that Brother Sam might be a little more like Dexter: He wants to be good, but his Dark Passenger keeps pushing Jesus out of the way and taking the wheel.

Or am I way off base? Share your theories in the comments!

We'll find out more when "Once Upon a Time" airs Sunday, October 9 on Showtime. Check out photos from the episode, plus more from episode 3, "Smokey and the Bandit":
