Timeline

Chronological list of events, according to the Early Cuts web-series:

Inconsistency

While Early Cuts is meant to symbolize killings done by Dexter prior to the events in the Showtime series, there are a couple of discrepancies.

  1. In the TV series, Alex Timmons was the first trophy in Dexter's blood slide collection, and Gene Marshall was the second one. However, in Early cuts, Gene Marshall was killed in 1993, and Alex Timmons was killed in 2003, ten years later. In Early Cuts, it is clear that Dexter does not take a blood slide from Gene Marshall, yet there is a cut on Gene's face during the flashback in the TV series. This suggests that if Dexter did take a blood trophy from Gene, he wasn't killed ten years prior to the killing of Alex, (his first trophy). The Early Cuts story may be the definitive version as it was released post-Season 2 (and Gene Marshall's story was released post-Season 4), thus ruling out Gene's appearance in season one of the TV series.
  2. Cindy Landon, in the TV series, appears to be wrapped in plastic. In Early Cuts, Cindy is confined inside a box where Dexter chainsaws her in half.
