Sonny suggests talking to Vince the harbormaster but Dex says that Vince was fired and the new guy wasn’t receptive. Sonny is concerned. Dex says competition is trying to cut into Sonny’s market share. The managers at the Grill and every city franchise of Haven Bistro have canceled their contracts and are declining delivery of Corinthos Coffee to buy from someone else.

Sonny asks Dex what he thinks and Dex says it is a sign of things to come. He wonders if Selina is behind the move but Sonny says his has an arrangement with her and his connections on the docks are important to her. Vince was his guy. Dex asks if the two are connected.

Dex goes to visit Michael at the Quartermaine Stables. Michael asks if he can help him and Dex says he hopes so. Michael asks why Dex is there and he says he is showing initiative. Michael asks if Sonny sent him and Dex says no and that no one saw him enter the stable. Michael tells him to make sure no one sees him on his way out. Dex says that was rude. Michael says it isn’t rude enough as Dex didn’t get the message as he is on private property and shouldn’t be there. Dex says he isn’t done and he came there for a reason. Dante and Brando arrive and Brando introduces Michael to Dex, Sonny’s new hire. Michael says that Dex took a wrong turn. Brando says he will follow Dex back to Sonny.

Brando explains to Sonny about what happened and that he and Dante got there in time. Dex tells Sonny he wasn’t going to kill Michael. They were just talking. Sonny threatens to kill Dex if he goes near his kids again. Sonny says his family is off limits and Dex says he understands. After Brando explains to Sonny why he suspected Dex, Brando leaves. Sonny asks Dex what job he gave him. Dex says to see check and see if any other vendors have canceled Sonny’s business. Sonny says to follow his orders but Dex says that doesn’t work for him. Dex explains that Sonny doesn’t wants a robot. He wants someone who can think for himself and anticipate what Sonny needs. Sonny says he doesn’t trust Dex enough yet. Dex admits he was trying to impress Sonny who says Dex needs to obey his orders. Dex wonders if Sonny will give him a second chance.

Dex meets Michael in an alley and it is revealed that Michael hired Dex to bring down Sonny. Michael says that Dex was out of line earlier and that his family is off limits. Dex says he has heard that one today.

On June 13, Sonny calls Dex and tells him something personal has come up. He will get back to Dex with the instructions and he hangs up. Sonny has a coffee shipment sitting in the harbor with a shelf life and the new harbormaster won't let it through.

On June 27, Sonny brings Brando a vintage corvette to his garage to fix up. Sonny has Dex come in too and says Dex needs to get along with Brando who is his cousin. Dex is just his driver for now but he is doing a good job. Sonny can’t find his sunglasses and Dex leaves to locate them.

Dex will have to find a ride home and Dex says he will take a Rideshare. Dex tells Brando that he learned his lesson and thanks Brando for keeping him from making a mistake. Dex asks for a truce and Brando accepts it with a handshake. Suddenly Dex's phone rings and he says it is his boss. Brando leaves to look at Sonny's car. Michael is the one who called Dex and he says he had a setback today and now Dex has his full attention. He asks how soon Dex can meet as he has an idea but they will have to get creative. Michael agrees to meet Dex somewhere and says Sonny won’t see them coming.

On July 13, Dex tells Brando that Sasha will be ok after she is put on 72 hold at GH for taking pills. They bond over vet experience and Dex says that he had one tour in Afghanistan in Bagram and Kandahar. He was almost killed many times and got out as soon as he could.
