Flashbacks to Dexter's childhood show his questioning his foster father Harry (James Remar) about his real parents, and Dexter finds that Mr. Driscoll donated some of his blood to the young Dexter for surgery.

In the further background, there are clearly road closure signs blocking off the bridge, this is how crews close-off sets that are filmed in public. See more
