Previously on Republic of Doyle:
Fearing that the Jake and Mal may undercut the services of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, the Doyle team of detectives are banned from working on any private investigations in St. John's.
In a fit of rage, Jake devises a scheme to worm his way back into the detecting business and hopefully back into Leslie's heart. He uses his time machine to assemble a crack-team of history's greatest minds who have fought censorship to help him form a legal case against the RNC. Among the chosen greats: Maya Angelou, Judy Blume, James Joyce, Galileo Galilei, Mark Twain, and J.K. Rowling.
Will the RNC realise the absurdity of their actions, or will Jake have to move his business Gander?
