Dexter: The Top 7 Most Vicious Killers
"Dexter" Season 7 is quickly approaching, and we can hardly wait to see what's in store for us viewers this September 30th. Season 6 ended with Debra finding out Dexter's dark secret, actually catching him in the act. In honor of six seasons of Dexter ridding Miami of murderers, here is our list of seven killers we are most glad Dexter was around for.

1. The Trinity Killer aka Arthur Mitchell (John Lithgow)
Season 4 is easily the best season of "Dexter" because of one thing: the Trinity Killer. John Lithgow brings to life the scariest serial killer ever to grace the screen.
I'll set the scene- Lithgow is in a bathtub full of water, sitting behind a young woman. Her face is frightened as his is soft and gentle. In one hand he holds a mirror aimed at the face of the young woman, whom he has in a choke hold. In his other hand is a razor, which he uses to slice the woman's femoral artery. In the mirror he watches as the life, and blood, completely drains out of his victim.
The bathtub is only one place Trinity performs his murders. The others include forcing a mother of two to commit suicide via high jump, beating a father of two to death with a hammer and burying a young boy alive.
Mitchell was an abusive father of two who was very active in his church's home building projects, an activity that allowed him to travel to kill. His worst act before his death by Dexter - the murder of Dexter's wife, Rita - created the biggest surprise on "Dexter" to date.
2. The Ice Truck Killer aka Rudy Cooper aka Brian Moser (Christian Camargo)
Season 1 started off with a bang. Almost immediately we are introduced to Dexter's dark secret, followed by a blood-drained and dismembered body with no head. This body is the work of the Ice Truck Killer.
Brian Moser, son of murdered Laura Moser and brother to unknowing Dexter, kills his victims and drains them completely of their blood. He then cuts the body into strategic pieces and places them in public places with subtle clues for Dexter to follow. Each clue helps Dexter remember a small piece of his past, which he has managed to forget.
Instead of just approaching Dexter to confess their relation, Brian kills to create a puzzle for Dexter to solve, ending in the attempted murder of Debra. What Brian didn't count on was Dexter's love for his sister.
3. The Skinner aka George Washington King (Jesse Borrego)
The trouble in Season 3 started when Dexter killed Freebo, a small time heroin dealer. It turned out that Freebo owed someone quite a bit of cash, that someone being George King. King owned a tree trimming service, which allowed him to go undetected as he trailed Debra Morgan as she interviewed Freebo's friends and associates for his whereabouts. Soon after speaking with them, each person would show up dead, skinned. Eventually, through the fear of an employee of King, Deb was able to deduct that King was the skinner, but not before Dexter could kill him.
4. Jorge and Valerie Castillo (Jose Zuniga and Valerie Dillman)
They may not be among Season 1's main killers on "Dexter," but Jorge and Valerie certainly belong on this list. The wealthy owner of a junkyard, Jorge smuggled Cuban immigrants into the United States on his boat after charging them an obscene amount of money. When they reached America, Jorge would slap on an additional fee. When these poor immigrants couldn't pay, Jorge would drown them.
What did Valerie do? She was aware of the murders and simply did not care. Jorge was bringing in large sums of money, and she enjoyed the power. Hopefully they had time to enjoy all of that money and power before they ended up on Dexter's table.
