Stumptown (2019): S01E05 – Bad Alibis


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 is interviewed for her license. With Grey missing, she takes over management of the Bad Alibi and hires Tookie when the bar’s chef unexpectedly quits. Hoffman defies orders to stay away from Grey’s case, and is threatened with the loss of his badge if he does not walk away. Instead, he hires Dex to find him instead. While on the job, Grey discovers that Kane plans to kill his friend Denton and has assigned his enforcer Frank to take Ansel hostage in order to keep him in line.

While at a restaurant with Frank, Ansel gets in contact with his sister; she rescues him and interrogates Frank to learn where Kane and Grey are. The police stage a raid, and Hoffman catches up to Kane, nearly killing him in anger before Cosgrove talks him down. Dex punches Grey for putting her brother in danger and tells him that he’d better come clean while he still can. Despite having found an engagement ring while searching his loft, she is unable to get him to admit that he might have feelings for her. Tookie decides to quit so he can return to his food truck. Dex receives news that she passed her interview and her license has been approved.
