All of a sudden Jake's regular men's bowling league team kicks him off of the roster.  None of the remaining team members are willing to explain why, after years of membership, they're kicking him off of the team.  Jake isn't content with this non-answer.

Immediately, with Des and Tinny's help, Jake sets up round-the-clock surveillance on the remaining three team members.  Jake then gets Rose to tap their cell phones so he can listen in on all of their calls.

After a solid week and a half of top notch private detecting and NSA-level phone surveillance, Jake realizes that his teammates finally figured out that he'd long been sleeping with all of their wives.  Most amazing, at least in Jake's eyes, is that none of the hot wives came his way for emotional support (read 'a good rogering') during this time of marital turmoil.

Meanwhile, Mal's in the hospital with something or other.  The bowling drama was far to exciting for Jake to pay attention to the deteriorating health of his only father.

During all of this Doyle family drama Leslie frigged up some case or another through both sheer incompetence and because she's a poor judge of character.

Butch Cassidoyle and the SunDes Kid

Des and Tinny decide to conclusively determine if it's nature or nurture when it comes to their criminal genetic origins.  Des and Tinny further decide that the only test that will work is a heist with their fathers followed-up by an assessment of their skills and abilities as crooks.

That both of their fathers are in prison does pose a few problems, though these were easily solved by a double jail-break.  Of course, just because their fathers are out of jail doesn't mean they are necessarily up for a sentence-lengthening heist.

Through the power of a 'get the gang back together scene' a la Blues Brothers everything is arranged for the big heist.

It so happens that the bank Des and Tinny are casing had just hired Jake and Mal to perform a security assessment after they'd noticed a few flaws.

Just as the heist is about to start the staked-out Doyles notice that something's up.  Instead of calling the cops - because that's not their style - they decide to intervene themselves.

Once the Doyles have apprehended the 'gang' and realize who their dealing with they decide to quietly unjailbreak the fathers and just give Des and Tinny a stern talking to.  Of course, after this unexpected turn of events Des and Tinny still have no idea if they have a genetic predisposition to crime or not?  B'ys, they're some rotted at Jake and Mal for ruining their tidy experiment.

Doyle Poppins

After being fired by Mal due to a lack of business and questionable client relations  Jake offers his services as a nanny to two children from Bauline.  After showing up for his first day of work on a floating Ugly stick Jake realizes a few slugs of Screech helps calm the children down and helps his jokes hit just a little harder.  

After ripping his shirt off on a field trip to George Street Jake accidentally bangs the kids' mom. Before you know it he's back in the detecting game. 

Meanwhile Tinny'd been cleaning Des's chimney (if you know what I mean).


Jake stumbles upon a sleepy rural town where it's illegal to take your shirt off. Jake organizes a wet t-shirt contest and handily wins, proving to the town mayor that a six pack and large nipples can bring a town together. In the climatic ending Mayor Rob Ford smokes all the crack, hooks up with Jake and takes his shirt off, reminding the town why they implemented the shirt bylaw in the first place.

Magic Doyle

Jake decides that it's time to get out of the detecting business. With nothing but a gym bag full of tight shirts and no other discernible skills, he turns to stripping at the Cotton Club ladies nights.

Jake is initially pleased with the steady stream of loonies being tossed his way and even picks up a few cougars on good nights. Jake hopes that he will be taken under the wing of one of the older, more experienced dancers and tries to become BFFs with some of the hot young fellas. 

After almost breaking a hip in dry humping maneuver gone awry, Jake comes to the realization that he's the Matthew McConaughey in this scenario and leaves the Club feeling greasy, old and inadequate.

In the epilogue, Jake gets kicked out of the house for tracking glitter everywhere.


Jakes decides to get into podcasting to kill the time on stake outs. Each week Jake invites two notable individuals from Newfoundland or the detecting community into his surveillance van for an intense and thoughtful chat. It isn't long before WTD is rocketing up the iTunes charts and everyone is hoping for an invite to 'the van.'

A History of the world in a 100 Doyles

At a Doyle family reunion heretofore unknown and previously unmentioned Doyles are introduced to explain the role the Doyle family played in all stages of the development and history of Newfoundland. The whole private detecting angle is dropped for this intense character based multi-generational epic of an episode. 

Don't worry, Jake still finds the time to take his shirt off and hook up with hotties (they're mostly not too closely related to him).
