DEXTER Filming Locations - hundreds of actual places where the TV show Dexter was filmed.

The location: Arlene on phone with Hannah

Q. What is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. A public street.


Q. Where is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. Somewhere in Miami.


Q. When did we see it on the show?

    A. In Episode 12, of Season 7, "Surprise. Motherf**ker!"

    Hannah is in prison (having been put there by Dexter, after she poisoned his sister, Debra).

    Hannah phones Arlene (her former roommate at the reformatory) from prison, and tells her that she can't live the rest of her life in prison.

    She asks Arlene to help her end it, and at first we imagine that Hannah (an expert on poisons) plans to commit suicide.

    After Hannah reminds Arlene that she saved her from the abusive counselor, Arlene asks Hannah to tell her what to do.

    Later, Arlene slips her a white pill in court.

    But it turns out that she uses the pill to bring on a temporary seizure, then uses the medical emergency as an opportunity to escape.


Q. What is it actually in real life?

    A. A public street - just not in Miami.


Q. Where can I find it in real life?

    A. This scene was shot near the southwest corner of N. Beachwood Drive & Lexington Avenue, in Hollywood.

    Arlene is parked next to the green wrought-iron fence (and stop sign) at 1201 Beachwood, facing south, as you can see in this matching Google StreetView.

    Dexter producers love to cluster-shoot, so it's no coincidence that they shot this scene just a few houses south of the apartment where Dexter visits Estrada's wife.





    It's also just a block south of the Sunset-Gower studio where they shoot Dexter.

And just a block north of the cemetery where they filmed those scenes with Speltzer.
Here is an aerial photo of the location.  And here is a map link.


Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?

It was obvious that they had filmed the scene in a residential neighborhood, and I knew that for this same episode, they had shot in a residential neighborhood for the scene of Dexter visiting Estrada's wife. 

So that was the first place I looked.  It didn't take long, using Google StreetView, to spot that orange/brown house just south of the intersection, and then that green wrought-iron fence...
