R.I.P Maria LaGuerta: Lauren Vélez’s Best Dexter Moments

It’s the end of the road for Lauren Vélez on Dexter. For the last seven seasons, she’s starred on Showtime’s psychological thriller as lieutenant-turned-captain María LaGuerta, a hard-nosed, calculating and determined woman in charge of the Miami Metro Police Department’s homicide division. This season, in her quest to prove Dexter is the Bay Harbor Butcher, Vélez’s character ultimately met her maker in last night’s season finale. (Shockingly at the hands of someone other than Dexter.) To commemorate Vélez’s award-winning role, we’re taking a look back at her greatest moments on the show.
