Yes, Isaak has already inadvertently solved one of Dexter's little problems. No reason he can't inadvertently take care of another before he gets taken care of himself.

It is conceivable that she may meet her "maker" in a roundabout way as a result of her investigation, but I am pretty confident that it will not be on "Dex's table" or even by Dexter's hand. He now has a killer girlfriend and a sister who is rapidly "breaking bad". Then there is also the loose end of the Ukrainian gangster without a conscience who might wander into this tangled little web which La Guerta is weaving.
I said "setting up Laguerta for Dex's table or a major mind-F" and as you stated I didn't say Doakes was on the table. When I say "on the table" you can translate that to "somehow lead to the demise" if that wording works better for you.

I hope you can understand how those are two very different concepts...

Of course. People shouldn't take things so literally but I guess they so. Because we're talking about something that hasn't happened, may never happen, or unfold in an unforeseen way there is no point in listing every single possibility or mincing words. I think saying "on the table" is basically the same thing as saying "on the chopping block" or simply "in danger."

But really, in the context of this show it has a very specialized meaning, which must be respected if you want people to have any idea what you're talking about...

Stop trying to twist your words to make yourself sound right. You said the wrong thing, man up and admit it, stop weaseling around it. You make yourself look worse than if you just sacked up and said you messed up and apologized.

On topic: Quinn is an idiot, Yvonne dies, Isaak dies, LaGuerta lives for next season, my opinion.

He wasn't just "deleting" the documents...as you mention in quotes, he was shredding them using some piece of software I think called "document shredder" (maybe it's THIS or THIS). The graphic representation of eliminating the documents on the desktop was of a document shredder, so I think we are to assume it's a more "thorough" process than simple deletion....

I thought that was just the graphics the Mac uses when you put something in the Trash. Nothing is actually deleted from the hard drive until those physical spots on the platters have been overwritten with something else.

As a longtime and current Mac user, I can say that is NOT the graphics you see when deleting files or emptying the trash (unless there's been some modification made to the trash)...

That was the impression I got as well - that the files were more than just deleted.

OK, I don't use a Mac, so I didn't know. I just assumed that's what that was.

Just as Dexter is a fictional character, the Document Shredder app he used to delete those files was also a fictional app fabricated for the show. I searched (Googled) for the app for my Mac, as many others had also done as well, only to learn that it does not actually exist.

But, apparently, there ARE apps for the Mac that do exist and accomplish what he was trying to do....

Are there any year references in Dexter? His airport murder and carry out the body certainly seems per 9-11. The cell phones with their huge texts are always amusing.

Anyway, maybe the cloud isn't in their universe. While a writer should certainly have made backups (and who's to say these won't appear at some point), pre cloud there were many people taking a big gamble on a single disk.

But heck, with as much as he'd written you'd think there'd be an editor already involved. And then there was his own forensics guy.

So, lots of problems with the plot to not worry about a shredding app. But I'm still loving the season.

That's a very rude comment especially when I threw out valid theories like anyone else and after tonight's ep stand by every word I said no matter what context you want to take it in. Pretty much what I said happened and if it makes you feel any better I'll say
Spoiler:
she was "next" to the table. Back to exactly what I said before he put in to action the things that happened for her to die.
