The location: Dexter & Chase talk while driving
It's easy to
tell the difference, since the Bixby Village golf course is visible on
the north side of the street (when he's heading east), but a mobile home
park is visible on the south side of the street (when he's driving west).
They shot quite a few scenes while they were on Loynes Drive, all for that same final Episode 12.

Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?
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 5th 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, and my own personal reconnaissance around town, 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 locations.
This group of helpful fans includes Kerry, Rick, Joel, Geoff, Ellen, Julie, Susan, Jeff, and others. My thanks to all of them.
I had heard from Rick that they were filming on Loynes. After the scene aired, I heard from Ellen & Coleen, who both ID'ed the driving scene as Loynes. (Thanks, Rick Ellen & Coleen!)
