Stumptown is an American crime drama television series that debuted on ABC on 25 September 2019.
The series is based on the comic book series of the same name, created by Greg Rucka, Matthew Southworth and Justin Greenwood and adapted for television by writer-producer Jason Richman.
Dex persuades veteran PI Artie Banks (Donal Logue) to take her on as his apprentice. Their first job involves a messy divorce between real estate tycoon Randall Tapper and his wife Candace. Banks offers a great deal of useful advice, and admits he sympathizes with Dex because she reminds him of his daughter. Hoffman starts investigating Grey while looking into Jack’s murder. Prompted by Banks, Dex goes to Hoffman’s apartment for dinner; the two try to work each other for information on their respective cases before giving in to their feelings and having sex.
The investigation scores a major breakthrough when Tapper’s current girlfriend gives Banks video evidence of him abusing her, but Dex later discovers that he sold it to Tapper, had no intention of helping Candace, and has been manipulating her from the start. Banks condescendingly tells Dex that she would be a great PI if she only learned not to care. Hoffman tells Grey he knows about his connection to Jack, and offers him protection if he agrees to help find his killer. An enraged Dex visits Candace and declares her intention to bring down both Tapper and Banks.
