Promo summary
Dex goes undercover as a potential buyer to help Hoffman and Grey with the next phase of their drug case.

After being left in charge of the Bad Alibi, Ansel struggles to maintain order and enlists Tookie’s help.

. For me and my few Ontd friends who watch this on our bikes, I lol a lot this last episode!

. Did you have a little secondhand embarrassment at how they filmed the male strippers for network television? Did you lol at the lady from that old Drew Carey show (did you recognizer her?!) Was Cheryl Hines from Curb Your Enthusiasm a hoot?

. On a separate note WHAT is Hoffman doing with Grey, it gets more not cool each time, like doesn't the Portland PD have real bonafides who can do that job?

. I like how they portray Ansel, it seems respectful and his storylines are sweet

. The next episode airs in TWO weeks on Wednesday 10 February because next week ABC will air ... wait for it ... Royal Divide: Harry, Meghan, and The Crown ...

. On the plus side, many ep are directed and or written by women (!)

. You can catch up on episodes @, the ABC app, and Hulu

. FAQ1 Stumptown is what the Veronica Mars re-boot should have been

. FAQ2 the show is based on the comic book series of the same name, which is a modern-day detective fiction series based in Portland, Oregon, featuring Dex Parios, a (white) bisexual female private investigator with a gambling problem.

. 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.
