The location: Dr. Vogel Meets with Dexter

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

    A. It appears to be a park.

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

    A. Near the water, somewhere in Miami.

Q. When did we see it on the show?

    A. In Episode 1, of Season 8, "A Beautiful Day".

    Dexter, depressed after finding out that Debra now hates him, sits on the bench dedicated to the memory of LaGuerta.

    Suddenly, Dr. Evelyn Vogel approaches him.

    He tells her it's not a good time to talk.

    So she hands him a large envelope, and walks away.

    Dexter opens the envelope, and finds inside a collection of child's drawings, depicting dark, bloody fantasies.  His signature is at the bottom.

    Dexter springs to his feet and chases after Dr. Vogel, pinning her up against a door.

    "You can't kill me," she says.

    "Why?" asks Dexter.

    "Because I don't fit Harry's code."

Q. What is it actually in real life?

    A. A park and a restroom building.

Q. Where can I find it in real life?

    A. This is the very same park seen in the earlier scene of LaGuerta's memorial service, Shoreline Aquatic Park, in Long Beach, CA.

    And Dexter is sitting on the same bench, which was dedicated to LaGuerta.

    The striped door, which Dexter pins Vogel against, is actually the pull-down door a nearby park restroom building.

    (It's also the same park where they filmed the opening scene of Dexter & Harrison flying a kite.

    I shot the photos below in 2013.

    As you can see from my photo above, this round building is just a few steps away from (west of) the bench.

    The door is on its north side, facing Rainbow Harbor.

    In my photo below, that door is open -- in the scene, it had been rolled down.

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