Though Dexter has the better part of a season left, they're not exactly shooting the show live, so their Comic-Con panel today may have been one of the last opportunities for all the principals (even a taped statement from John Lithgow!), so they made the most of the emotional moment.

The panel was a mix of sincerity and humor from the whole crew, but most notably Dexter himself.

Michael C. Hall spoke to how he has more trouble getting out of character than into character, which is an icy statement if you really think about it. I guess Hall thought about it, because he punctuated the statement with a joke, saying "I do everything Dexter does — but then I just tickle the person."
