Dex is still putting in her hours toward her private investigator's license. No rest for the wicked as she pulls in friend and food truck entrepreneur Tookie (Adrian Martinez) during an attempted heist of evidence for leverage against a client's ex. Of course, it all goes right... until it all goes wrong.
It turns out that ex-cop/sleazy P.I. Artie Banks (Donal Logue) has a heart -- and it's not in a glass jar by his bed.
Red mustangs are a convenient outlet for anger management and golf practice -- who knew? Lieutenant Cosgrove (Camryn Manheim) didn't, but Dex's "mix-up" proves oddly satisfying for her as well, given her history with Banks during his days as a fellow LEO.
Sue Lynn Blackbird (Tantoo Cardinal) turns up and waxes philosophical about Dex's future in a penitentiary jumpsuit. Any day with Cardinal as alpha predator is a good day. So many strong women!

And the violent escape of a federal prisoner with ties to Grey and Lieutenant Hoffman (Jake Johnson and Michael Ealy) has them both on edge and scrambling for answers. There will be blood. I am definitely not getting too attached to either of them for a season two.

And Dex gets to beat somebody up. Several somebodies.
When does she go to the gym? Do push ups? Get in a little sparing? I know she is ex-military but that was over a decade ago. The only thing we see her lifting is a beer bottle. Go jog already!

And... Banks gives Dex her credentials towards her P.I. license. "Wait, I didn't do 1,500 hours yet." "Didn't it feel like it?"

Can we do a drinking game every time they shoehorn in “stumptown” in dialog, or if someone is wearing a timbers or trailblazers shirt?
