It can go either way. That's what makes it such an interesting scenario.
I feel like when he dumped the code and killed Hannah's father he kind of started to get a kind of like...**** it attitude.
I felt the show took a tone last night that was more like Dexter realizing...
'I dont kill because I have to and to kill murderers...its all bull shit. I kill because I like to and I will kill anyone that gets in my way.'
Which I think that state of mind has some influence from Hannah in it.
My guess as to where they go...Dexter starts to get loose with the code and losing some of his focus and as the LaGuerta theory heats up his recklessness winds up coming back to hurt him. He realizes he needs to regain focus and does some boss shit to get out from under the microscope. (Killing LaGuerta maybe?)
One thing I never understood about Dexter is I remember him saying in a past episode that the first rule of the code was 'Dont get caught'.
So why before did he work so hard to not kill innocent people who were on to him. (I.E. holding Doakes prisoner, that guy writing the book on Hanna and trying to buy him off.)
According to the code if someone is about to catch him shouldn't he be allowed to kill them even if they never killed anybody?
