Outline

Sue Lynn hires Dex again, this time to identify whoever is behind a series of attacks aimed at her. The case requires Dex to visit the reservation, where she is driven off by Sue Lynn’s bitter daughter-in-law Naomi. Hoffman persuades her not to drop the case, and she strikes a deal with Sue Lynn to get full access to the reservation; Sue Lynn assigns Naomi to shadow her investigation. Based on Dex’s intuition that someone within the tribe has a grievance against Sue Lynn, the pair discover that Hollis’ nephew is plotting against her, and use it to force Hollis to turn over the names of reservation members expelled by Sue Lynn.

Hoffman finds that one of them was a young man kicked out for selling drugs, and arrests him after finding him with a pipe bomb. However, before he can be processed, Sue Lynn exercises her authority as tribal chief to take him into her custody. Hoffman tells Dex that she crossed a line when she included Liz in the names to be investigated. Dex was paid by Sue Lynn with casino chips and she invites Liz to join her for a celebration at the craps table. The next morning, she wakes up to find a naked Liz in bed next to her.
