Vanessa, the manager for a wealthy state senate candidate, hires Dex to dig up compromising material on his opponent, Councilman Dan Gibson. Dex poses as one of Gibson’s volunteers and breaks into his office late at night, where she steals a letter and fends off a rival PI, Carol, also hired by Vanessa. Carol subsequently warns Hoffman that he needs to keep a closer eye on Dex. Grey agrees to let Liz train to be his new bartender, but their growing relationship annoys Dex; Liz tells Grey that he needs to prove he loves her and not Dex or they will eventually break up. Dex continues her investigation, ultimately discovering that Gibson, a gay man, fathered a son out of wedlock with a student while he was teaching college.
Despite her efforts to hide this revelation, Vanessa learns about it and pays her for her services. Realizing that she can’t live with profiting off the destruction of two families, Dex brokers a compromise: Gibson will drop out of the race if his son’s privacy is respected. She also returns Vanessa’s money and cuts all ties with her. Liz, Grey, and Hoffman join Dex and Ansel for “Friendsgiving”.
