Stumptown S1x04 Promo - "Family Ties"

Promo summary:
Dex faces off against Artie Banks to take down wealthy real estate mogul Randall Tapper. Meanwhile, Detective Cosgrove leads an investigation to find Wallace Kane, a prisoner on the loose.

Icymi here is the premise of the show [Spoiler (click to open)]
Dex Parios is a sharp-witted military veteran, who struggles to get by and take care of her younger brother, in Portland, Oregon. She also struggles with PTSD from her time as a Marine in Afghanistan, where she worked in military intelligence until she was injured by an explosion which killed her childhood sweetheart and former lover. Burdened by heavy gambling debts and unable to hold down a steady job, she becomes a private investigator to solve problems where the police cannot get involved. Detective Miles Hoffman [Michael Ealy] refers problems to her, and Grey McConnell [Jake Johnson], a bar owner and Dex's closest friend, provides moral support and employs her brother Ansel at his bar.

What did you think about this week's ep? That daydream of classic 1970s private eye show with the fashion and cheesy scenes. What's up with Dex parents? The story was decent, the scenes with Dex and Artie were good. The main cast seems to be getting in a groove. And sexy time with Dex and Hoffman! I was wondering when Sue Lynn would reappear. More of her and that dynamic please. Idk about this Kane guy but it doesn't look good. Also Jake Johnson looks better without his neckbeard. This show is a fun mid-week popcorn diversion.
