A. In Episode 3, of Season 8, "What's Eating Dexter Morgan?".
Dexter is searching for the Brain Surgeon serial killer, and he suspects that fitness salesman (and former Vogel patient) Ron Galuzzo may be the one.
First, Dexter pays him a visit at his Work Out City kiosk at the mall.
But when Galuzzo denies knowing Dr. Vogel, Dexter assumes he's hiding something.
So he breaks into Galuzzo's house.
Inside, Dexter discovers a messy house but a pristine kitchen - which, he determines, is being used as a kill room.
He is disgusted to find a human finger cooking in a pot of stew, and other human body parts stored in Galuzzo's refrigerator, neatly packed and labeled in Tupperware boxes.
Looking at an intact brain inside one of the plastic containers, Dexter concludes that Galuzzo isn't the Brain Surgeon (since the Surgeon cut up his victims' brains).
He's a cannibal.
A. This house is at 6650 Leland Way, in Hollywood. That's just a block south of Sunset Blvd, east of Cherokee Ave.
That's just south of Blessed Sacrament Church (on Sunset), and just a few blocks east of the well-known Hollywood & Highland.

Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?
A. In the early seasons, I
usually had to hunt down the locations after viewing the episodes, using
clues from the various scenes. By the now, though, I've developed
a small group of fans, spies & tipsters who kept an
eye out for Dexter filming in their neighborhoods, and let me know in advance when something is about to film there.
Between those reports, my own personal reconnaissance around town, and a
few new resources I discovered, by the time the new first episode airs, I
already know most (but not all) of the filming locations, and only
need to watch the episodes and match up the scenes with the correct
This group of helpful fans includes Rick, Ellen, Suzi, Elaine, Mia,
Julie, Kerry, Joel, Eric, Jeff, & others. My thanks to all of them.
This tip came from Rick. And although it is mainly an interior, it was easy to verify, since the brief scene outside (as Dexter watches Galuzzo leave) clearly shows a matching white metal fence and posts, and also gives us a glimpse of the nearby Post Office. ( Thanks, Rick! )
