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.
Claire Chesterfield hires Dex to do a background check on Zack Knight, a tattoo artist and her sister Jenna’s fiancee. Dex visits his parlour and grills him, learning that while Zack himself is clean, he does have a secret: he blames himself for the accident that killed Dahlia, the girl he was supposed to marry before he met Jenna. Tookie forces Grey to take him on as a “partner” in the Bad Alibi; Grey, resistant to change and furious that Tookie seems to think he cannot run his own bar properly, throws him out.
Ansel is upset and tells Grey that without Tookie’s food, the Bad Alibi will suffer financially. Hoffman sets up an article attacking his father, Lionel, for representing a man he arrested; his mother forces them to make amends and Lionel extends an offer to Hoffman to join his firm. Grey invites Tookie to return to the Bad Alibi and promotes Ansel to assistant manager. Dex crashes Jenna’s wedding and forces her to confess that she was the driver who killed Dahlia; the police arrest her and Zack repays Dex for her help by giving her a free tattoo of a blackbird on her abdomen.
