    Ha! I thought something was hinky. I haven't even watched the most recent episode. The last one I saw ended with Dex waking up in bed with the bartender. That's what I was basing my speculation on.

    Finally got around to watching the last two episodes as it's been a bit of a slog. At least they got rid of Liz. I'm really tired of the shipping storylines. It's too bad the series isn't more like the comic (as Rob mentioned). I'll probably finish the season but it's at the bottom of the viewing queue nowadays.

    They actually admitted that this is about "love triangles" during the bumper for the upcoming shows. As I totally expected, the series is the typical ABC show I was dreading. Not sure if I'll watch after the holiday break.

    I guess ABC isn't ready yet for a 3 (or 4) way. ;)

    Anyone still watching? I'm enjoying it. Perhaps not as strong overall as I'd hoped it would be, but it's not bad. Characters are growing on me, and Dex is a unique one.

    Liked it when Miles tore up the check. :eek:

    The whole Miles literally blackmailing Grey into risking his life as an undercover operative thing left a really bad taste for me. And then how they just kinda slid past the blackmail and made it seem like a normal thing. Seems to me in that situation Miles would have made an enemy for life in Grey, but at the end they were just buddy-buddy.

    And the way Grey got Max out of town baffles me. The cops are chasing him because he's "a wanted man"; when they pull him over Max is in plain sight; yet later nobody knows what happened to her. For that matter, how did Grey get from being surrounded by cops in combat armor with assault rifles to driving away with Max? I guess when they surrounded the place they must have used a hard perimeter; nothing else explains how easily he got through it.

    I don't know, the sheer stupidity of this show is really getting to me. I've made it this far (out of loyalty to the brilliant Greg Rucka comics the show is based on), so I guess I'll tough it out for the of the season. But if the show comes back next year, I doubt I'll be there.

    Not sure why Dex hasn’t had a three-way on the show yet.
    Thought this would have been the episode when Dex was discussing with Grey and Miles how it was funny how they were both inside of her, but not at the same time.

    Only in a porn movie was that a setup for a three way.

    "Group hug?"

    Even though it's a cliche, I do like the fact that Dex's new "nemesis" is a woman who she has feelings for.

    When they met in the bar, I thought the hit person was so good she tracked Dex down and the hookup was part of her plan to run down the gang who stole the truck. Turns out it was just a coincidence.

    Really enjoying this show. Ratings aren't strong, so I have no idea how it will fare, but it's become a fun show to watch.

    The characters have developed personality, love watching all the goings-on at the bar (Tookie, Ansel, mini-disasters, etc), and they've done a good job of slowly developing Dex's (and others) back story. Unlike so many Broadcast dramas where they drop ten years of back story in the first episode, with Stumptown they give us a little over time. Some eps skip it, and others, like this past week, spend most of it on our character's history.

    They're doing a good job of mixing the typical procedural "story of the week" with long-term character development and back story. Hope we get a second season.

    Somehow I missed the episode where they finished up Grey's undercover operation... don't know what happened to it but it's not on my TiVo. Well, I don't feel too badly about it. I've been enjoying the last few episodes, but (spoiler for previews for next week):
    at the end of this week's episode (trip to LA) I was telling my wife how it makes me so much happier with the show now that they've done away with the will they/won't they between Grey and Dex, and literally two minutes later I see the previews for next week... :mad::mad::mad:

    Everything went to hell, but someone saved the day (and the sting). <-Sorry, typical TV undercover op.

    BUT, toward the end of the bust... Grey helped Eve escape. She tried to talk him into joining her, but he said a life on the run wasn't for him. The cops suspect he was involved in her not being on the scene and arrested, but can't prove it.

    I'm probably forgetting a million little things, but details from shows like this fly out of my brain as quickly as they once landed.
