Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Capt. Maria LaGuerta (as Lauren Velez)


Having rescued Travis at the church, Dexter now tries to figure out what the next tableau will be. With Travis having agreed to help him, Dexter gets him a room in a hotel to keep him safe. A clue from one of the paintings eventually leads Dexter to a Professor Casey, an avowed atheist. He tries to warn Casey about what may happen but the professor brushes him off, claiming to get threats all of the time. Unfortunately, the doomsday killer strikes again. When Travis disappears, Dexter traces him to the church. Dexter finds him alive but also makes a startling discovery. Meanwhile Batista takes Quinn to task when he fails to show up for work and apparently left his phone and gun behind in someone's car when he left the strip club. Debra decides to reopen the case of the dead call girl despite Capt. Laguerta's objections. Written by garykmcd

It's getting silly
29 November 2011 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Quite a lot of us, in several forums, had long worked out that Gellar was a figment of Travis' imagination. There were a number of clues, deliberate or otherwise.

But a great problem is the logistics. How could Travis achieve all this in the time allocated?

Especially in this episode. He couldn't murder the guy, empty his guts, drain his blood, set the scene, wash himself and change his clothes, all whilst Dexter was stuck in the lift. He would have had to leave the motel with a change of clothes + gear for his tableau or get a taxi to his flat or the church then to the Hall, hope the guy was still there, murder him quietly, set the scene, wash, change clothes, taxi back to his flat or church to dump his murder gear then to the motel.

And at the end, how would Dexter fail to pick up Travis's goof? Dexter cuts the chain at the middle, Travis gets up and the cuffs just fall off!

Also at the end, how could "Gellar" disappear in the underground passage, then put a heavy object on top of the slab above him? Yet Dexter naively goes down there looking for him.

On a side note, LaGuerta is looking more and more like a mess. I suppose she will be written off by being murdered and part of a tableau.
