    the way he does

    1) He will destroy her life the way he does everything else.
    2) He will destroy her life as he does everything else.

    3) He will destroy her life like everything else.


    Aren't there two meanings possible in cases '1' and '2':
    a) He will destroy her life the way he destroys everything else.

    b) He will destroy her life and he will do that the way he does everything else he does. (He
    does everything carelessly or with a plan or...)

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: the way he does

    The only likely meaning is that he destroys everything and he will destroy her life too.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
