Say it ain't so! Has Dexter already replaced his dearly departed Rita?!

If news of big-screen star Julia Stiles' casting in Dexter's fifth—and crazy-anticipated season is any indication, all signs point toward yes...

OK, to say Julia is replacing Julie Benz's much-loved matriarch is a bit of a stretch, but since the lovely Rita is now dead and gone, the Dark Passenger is ready to rear his ugly head once more—and that's where the Bourne franchise actress comes in.

According to Showtime, Julia will pop up in 10 of season five's 12 episodes as a "mysterious young woman who forms a unique relationship with Dexter."

Great, the last thing Dex (Michael C. Hall) needs is another strange chick around him (remember Lila, à la season two?!)...especially in this time of grief!

Sorry, we're still just a little emotional from Trinity's reign of terror in the world of our sweet Dexter.

What do you think about Dexter's newest lady? Can she fill the void left by Miss Benz? Send lots of love and reax below, and stay tuned to WWK because Dexter began production late last week which means the spoilery goodness has officially begun.
