The location: Gas Station - Dexter's card declined

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

    A. A gas station.

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

Q. When did we see it on the show?

    A. In Episode 1, of Season 7, "Are You...?".

    Dexter is speeding through traffic in Miami, heading to the Miami International Airport, when he notices that he's almost out of gas.

    So he pulls into a gas station and tries to fill up.

    But when he swipes his credit card, he gets a "declined" message at the pump. He tries several other cards, but they are all declined.

    (Dexter doesn't realize it yet, but crazy Louis has hacked his credit accounts and closed them all.)

    Eventually, Dexter resorts to simply using cash, which he pulls from his "getaway pack" in the trunk.

    Then he hits the road again.

Q. What is it actually in real life?

    A. A real gas station.

Q. Where can I find it in real life?

    A. They stayed close to home for this one.

    This was shot at a 76 Station at 4700 Beverly Blvd., in Hollywood.

    That's at the southwest corner of Beverly and St. Andrews Place, about a mile southeast of the Sunset-Gower studio where Dexter is filmed.

    Here is a Google StreetView of the gas station:

    Here is an aerial photo of the station.  And here is a map link.

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 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 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 locations.

    This group of helpful fans includes Rick, Ellen, Elaine, Mia, Joel, Susan, Eric, Jeff, Kerry & others. My thanks to all of them.

    I had a few different sources for this one, including Rick, and some photos online that were shot at the station during the filming, and posted on
      (Thanks, Rick!)
