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.
Grey’s old boss, Wallace Kane, escapes from custody while serving a life sentence. Dex’s attempts to dig up dirt on Randall are continually thwarted by Banks, while Sue Lynn, who has partnered with Randall to build a school, pressures Dex by threatening to call in her debt to the casino. Banks eventually succumbs to his guilt after Dex calls him a scumbag and admits that Candace’s daughter reminds him of his own deceased child; he leads her to Randall’s former accountant who reveals that the school is a cover for illegal activity.
Cosgrove notices that Hoffman is becoming obsessed with the Kane case, and assigns it to another detective. Dex and Banks search the construction site, and find evidence that Randall is smuggling counterfeit pills. With help from Sue Lynn, who abhors drug dealing on her reservation, Dex gets Randall to incriminate himself on camera, and forces him to remove the pills, finish the school, and return Candace’s daughter to her. Banks signs off on Dex’s hours, qualifying her to get a PI license. Kane abducts Grey and informs him that he will have to pull off one last job to pay his and Jack’s debt.
