I think it's gonna happen much sooner. Either in the next episode or the one after that.

Since the beginning I've seen two possibilities of who may eventually end up on Dexter's table, either Miguel Prado or Joey Quinn. I seem to have a significantly stronger case for Miguel Prado for being the final victim of the season. There is also the possibility of breaking tradition and Dexter killing both, but that's not very likely. Anyway, I suspect Joey Quinn could be the one skinning everyone. It's really just a feeling, no concrete evidence. The way I see this one going down is Debra Morgan figures it all out, that's how she'll get her shield, so Quinn is driven underground. Dexter finds him and kills him. The big issue here is Quinn has no quarrels with Dexter. The plot seems to lead towards Miguel Prado ending up on the butcher table, not necessarily because he's obsessed. We can definitely agree it's because Miguel Prado turns into a monster. Miguel is too gung-ho; he likes cutting corners too much. He'll end up cutting the corners of Dexter's rules and kill someone who turned out to be innocent. Maybe he'll accuse Joey Quinn of being the skinner, and later Debra will reveal who the real killer is. The other possibility is he'll kill Ellen Wolf, sticking with the idea that you need to kill the anaconda at the head. Then again, the plot seems to be leading too much to this possibility, so I have doubts about this ending. There's also the question of who the skinner is and how s/he fits into the whole thing. Debra wants her shield so much, and there has been a lot of focus on that, it would be too much of a shame to let the skinner get killed by either Miguel Prado or Dexter. Then again s/he's too big of a killer to simply let go.
