drive, they can overhear part of the desperate conversation between
Vogel & Yates (via an open phone), as she tries to convince the
killer that she's on his side - and stay alive - while Dexter
desperately speeds to the house.
However, Yates spots the phone Vogel has left on and flies into a rage, just as Dex & Deb arrive at the house.
Q. What is it actually in real life?
A. Public streets - but nowhere near Miami.
Q. Where can I find it in real life?
A. This driving scene was shot on the streets of Hancock Park, near the Wilshire Country Club.
The first driving shot (where you can see a 35-mph speed limit sign) was filmed driving west on 3rd Street at night,just before Rimpau Blvd, near 5180 W. 3rd.
That's just east of the south end of Wilshire Country Club.
The later driving shot (where tall hedges line both sides of the street) was filmed half a mile to the north, while heading east on Beverly Blvd, as it cuts through the middle of the Wilshire Country Club - between Hudson & Rossmore Avenues, near 5980 Beverly Blvd.
Here is a screencap of the first driving scene, on 3rd Street:
And here is a matching Google StreetView:
Here is a screencap of the 2nd driving scene, on Beverly Blvd:
A. My first clue to this one was that blue & white street sign reading "Rimpau". I knew Rimpau Blvd
was a north/south street in Hancock Park (where they had filmed earlier
for this episode). I could see that they were on some other
east/west street, heading towards Rimpau. So I went to Google
StreetView and began looking at all of the intersections with Rimpau,
looking for that blue street sign mounted just above a traffic
light. Fortunately, there weren't many of them, and I was able to
quickly discover that it was the intersection of 3rd & Rimpau.
There were no street name signs in
the second driving scene. My main clue was the large hedges on
each side of the road, as well as a curve in the road, and the fact that
there were banners hanging from the light poles. Assuming
it would probably be near the other scene, I started looking for curved
streets in Hancock Park, and Beverly Blvd jumped out at me. I
switched to satellite view and looked for hedges, noting that Beverly
passed through the Country Club's golf course. Once I knew it was
on Beverly, it was just a matter of finding that 35-mph speed limit
sign, and matching the view to the screenshot.
