'Dexter' Season 6, Episode 5 Recap: 'Angel of Death'

Earlier in the season, I found myself getting frustrated about the pacing of Season 6 of 'Dexter,' but 'Angel of Death' was the kind of stellar, faced-paced episodes that Dexter can deliver when it's clicking on all cylinders. It covered a lot of ground and didn't waste any time.

Did I miss something? Why didn't Dexter find out from Travis where Gellar was? Having a strap round his neck you would thing Travis would tell him No? Good series so far. I am curious to know what will happen in future episodes as Dexter has already found out who the doomsday killer is which correct me if I am wrong is usually left until near the end of the series. There are still going to be 12 to 15 episodes aren't they?

Angel of death and dooms day killer foolishness yes the guest actors are amazing in this season. but such a high public case how can Dexter really just kill the doomsday killers and not have some kind of consequence for the killing?
