In-Depth Episode Synopsis

Warning: the below synopsis may contain spoilers

Destiny goes on a date with a dog who enlightens her to the power of bottom-sniffing when it comes to getting to know someone.

After sniffing all the bottoms in the neighbourhood, including that of broadcaster Paul Ross, she is bitterly disappointed that it seems the love of her life could in fact be her straight-laced, metrosexual fox friend Nelson.

Kali is reunited with an old partner in crime, but is irritated to discover that he has no interest in helping her terrorize the neighbourhood as he has now found God and seen the error of his ways. Annoyed, Kali plots to try and tempt him back to the dark side.

Nelson adopts one of Vince's cubs after Vince reveals that he ate the others in a cannibalistic massacre because he was hungry and couldn't find a spoon for the yoghurts in his fridge - they were rhubarb flavour so he didn't fancy them anyway.

And Marion has severe paranoia and a craving for instant noodles after overdosing on catnip.

Song: What Kind Of God? - Sung by Kali, featuring Christopher Biggins as God.
Written by Adam Miller, Daniel Peak and Jon Brown.
