Dex Parios is the finest Private Investigator that “Stumptown” has to offer

Or so, we are told!

I guess we will see, for ourselves, won’t we?

“Fresh” and discharged from the Army,

Dex is back on home-soil, traumatized just like any person that has been in war or at one

And is trying so hard to forge a life.

STUMPTOWN – “Forget it Dex, It’s Stumptown.” – Dex Parios – a strong, assertive and sharp-witted army veteran with a complicated love life, gambling debt and a brother to take care of – works as a PI in Portland, Oregon. With only herself to rely on, she solves other people’s messes with a blind eye toward her own, finding herself at odds with the police and in the firing line of criminals, on the series premiere of “Stumptown,” WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 25 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (ABC/David Bukach)


What life she has now, is full of binge-drinking, poverty and so many people chasing after her!

Some people want pay-back for what she’s done, others want her away from where they are, others even want to arrest her and some others actually want to work with her!

And this is how she ends up in the private investigations business!

Dex is now using her skill-set, that she acquired while in the military, working as an Intelligence officer

To go after the truth

Not because it is paid of her to get it but because it actually matters to her!

No matter what it takes!

STUMPTOWN – Based on the “Stumptown” graphic novel series, “Stumptown” follows Dex Parios (Cobie Smulders) – a strong, assertive and sharp-witted army veteran with a complicated love life, gambling debt and a brother to take care of in Portland, Oregon. Her military intelligence skills make her a great PI, but her unapologetic style puts her in the firing line of hardcore criminals and not quite in alliance with the police. (ABC/Kailey Schwerman)


Trust me, it will be worth your while as you watch her take on all these peoples’ cases like they are her very own!

Of course, with some help.

Beginning with her brother’s, Ansel.

I want you to see for yourself why!

Then, there is Grey, who has somewhat come to “accept” Dex as she is

Or should we call it more of “come to tolerate” her and her antics?

You’ll see why!

STUMPTOWN – “The Dex Factor” – Dex goes undercover as a potential buyer to help Hoffman and Grey with the next phase of their drug case. Meanwhile, Dex unexpectedly becomes close to a fellow veteran support group member and soon discovers they have more in common than they thought. After being left in charge of the Bad Alibi, Ansel struggles to maintain order and enlists Tookie’s help on “Stumptown,” WEDNESDAY, FEB. 5 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EST), on ABC. (ABC/Raymond Liu)


Now, you know you have reached the top of the criminal list, when your name becomes a regular on the tongues of cops (hihi)

That is where Officer Miles Hoffman comes in!

He is among those cops chasing after our girl! Yes, there is a number of them….

Who include Officer Miles’ superior, Lieutenant Cosgrove!

For a superior or commanding officer, for that matter, to chase after one person like that, it’s got to be really important, don’t you agree?

We will find out why….

In comes in Tookie!

He happens to be Dex’s best informant…he simply knows everything going on, in Stumptown….more than Grey! (hihi)

If you don’t love Tookie for this work, I hope you love him for his cooking and food!

STUMPTOWN – “Bad Alibis” – Despite being ordered by Lieutenant Cosgrove to take time off, Hoffman enlists Dex’s help to investigate a case. Meanwhile, Tookie’s culinary skills come in handy at Bad Alibi, and Dex stresses over an interview to become a certified PI on “Stumptown,” WEDNESDAY, OCT. 30 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

Now, there’s one special person left, in this “project” of ours.

Her name is Sue Lynn. She is best known to Dex, as her former mother-in-law!

Sue also happens to be the head of a tribal casino!

She’s the most surprising character, on the entire show, I assure you!
