What is it supposed to be on the show?
Q. Where is it supposed to be on the show?
When did we see it on the show?
A. In Episode 11, of Season 8, "Monkey in a Box".
previous episode (10), Saxon had murdered his mother, Dr. Vogel, at her
home, slitting her throat right in front of Dexter.
Q. What is it actually in real life?
is her funeral (or memorial service), attended by Dexter, Debra, and
most of the Miami Metro crew who worked with her.
It's a short scene. The mourners come out of the church, Matthews
thanks them for coming, and then asks "Who wants a drink?"
The scene then cuts to Angel's cafe.
Q. Where can I find it in real life?
A. This is St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, at 5100 E. Broadway, in Long Beach, CA.
situated on a triangle formed by Broadway (on the north), Livingston
Drive (on the south) and Granada Ave (on the east). The front of
the church faces the east point of that triangle.
Appropriately enough, the church is just a few blocks away from Vogel's house, about 1/3 mile northwest of Naples Island.
It's even closer to Saxon's apartment, and is south of the park where they found the body of the Brain Surgeon's first victim.
Here is an aerial
photo of the church. Here is a Google StreetView.

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 initially came from Rick, and then both Suzi & Julie confirmed that they were filming there.
(Thanks to Rick, Julie & Suzi!)
