Why? Because the center is right
next door to Travis's church / lair, which has been a central location all
year. So they found themselves filming a lot in that area.
Right around the corner from the church is the cougar's house. And less than half a mile away, to the southwest are two other Season 6 locations: the barber shop (where Dexter killed the gang
leader, Julio), and the fake coffee stand where Debra told Angel
about her promotion.
A. In previous seasons, I've
usually had to hunt down the locations after viewing the episodes,
using clues from the various scenes. By the 6th season, though,
I'd developed a small group of fans, spies & tipsters who kept an
eye out for Dexter filming in their neighborhoods, and would let me know
in advance when something was about to film there.
Between those reports, my own personal reconnaissance around town, and a
few new resources I discovered, by the time the first episode aired, I
already knew most (but not all) of the filming locations, and only
needed to watch the episodes and match up the scenes with the correct
This group of helpful fans includes Kerry, Rick, Ellen, Susan, Jason,
Elaine, Joel, Julie, Geoff, Jeff, Jen, and others. My thanks to all of
me to this one, and I was able to verify it via another source.
It made perfect sense, since they also filmed in both of the center's
two parking lots, and next door at the Abbey.
