The location: Driving during phone call with Lumen

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

    A. A city street.

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

    A. Somewhere in Miami.

Q. When did we see it on the show?

    A. In Episode 9, of Season 5, "Teenage Wasteland".

    Dexter is driving home from his visit to the Jordan Chase offices, and talking to Lumen (who is at Dexter's home) about the extra security and about Chase's blood-sample necklace.

    Suddenly, Lumen tells Dexter that she hears someone trying to get into the house.

    She begins to panic, and Dexter tells her to hide.

    She does, arming herself with a knife, while Dexter speeds to get home in time.

    But the scene turns out to be a tease, when the intruders turn out to be only Astor and her new friend Olivia.

Q. What is it actually in real life?

    A. A city street - just not in Miami.

Q. Where can I find it in real life?

    A. This driving scene was shot traveling east on Ocean Blvd, in Long Beach, CA.

    The camera is looking north.

  • The Rock Bottom sign you see in the top photo belongs to a restaurant/brewery of the same name, located at 1 Pine Avenue, at the northwest corner of Pine & Ocean. (StreetView)

  • The brown & white building you see in the second photo down, houses a deli at 455 Ocean, the northwest corner of Linden Ocean. (StreetView)

  • The blurry gas station you see in the fourth photo down is, believe it or not, the same Shell gas station where Barry gets arrested, located at the northeast corner of Ocean Alamitos Ave. (StreetView)

  • I shot the photo below in November 2010:

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

Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?

    A.  This was an easy one. I'm familiar with downtown Long Beach, so I spotted that "Rock Bottom" sign right away, and knew that he was heading east on Ocean.
