  • Season after season, LaGuerta protected Dexter. Even when Quinn came to her with his theory that Dexter had ties to Trinity.
    Even with Doakes -- the most important person in her life -- LaGuerta kept saying, "You are so wrong." And I think that's why she pursued this in this season with such a vengeance, because she had to exonerate him -- she had to clear Doakes' name and make herself whole. In some ways, LaGuerta always blamed herself for Doakes' death. If she had just listened to what he was saying, he might be alive.

  • LaGuerta frames Dexter in an attempt to catch him killing Estrada. Dexter then returns the favor and frames Miami Metro's captain by planting her fingerprint on Estrada's ID after she arrests him for murder and suspicion of being the Bay Harbor Butcher.

Dexter- Maria LaGuerta's Death FatPlaysGames

GET IT, GIRL | LaGuerta arrests Dexter for Estrada’s murder, and she does it all the way: showing up at his apartment with two uniformed officers, marching him through Miami Metro in handcuffs, asking Deb to recuse herself from the investigation, etc. For a minute, it seems as though LaGuerta’s got him – until Masuka comes through with some evidence that makes it look as though she’s framing him in order to clear Doakes’ name.
