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 agrees to pose as Grey’s drug buyer from Los Angeles; she meets Violet, a former Army investigator, at the support group. Violet is secretly a fixer sent to retrieve the stolen heroin. She flirts with Dex and they connect over their experience with trauma and adjusting to post-military life. After making love, they exchange phone numbers the next morning. Grey leaves the Bad Alibi in Ansel’s care and Tookie swings by to help. After the sting operation goes down, Dex finds Violet outside the body shop, holding a gun.
Surprised to see her there, Violet tells Dex she does not want to hurt her, but Dex says her best friend is inside, and a fight ensues. Violet is wounded and thrown over the balcony, but when Dex looks down she has gone. With help from Sue Lynn, Grey gets Max out of town and gives her his truck to escape. Ansel gets permission from Dex to take driving lessons. Later, at the Bad Alibi, the bartender brings Dex a cocktail sent by a woman, that is similar to what Violet was drinking when they met. Dex looks around, but Violet has slipped away.
