Doug Judy takes Rosa and Jake to meet his mother as his old phone is at her apartment. Doug Judy arranges a meet up with the Pontiac Bandit's men but the man is spooked and leaves.

Rosa and Jake get Doug Judy to arrange a meeting with the drug leader and he gets Jake to pose as Dante Thunderstone and Rosa to be his bodyguard, Celeste (Doug Judy claims they are 'doing it' on the side). Jake and Doug Judy successfully jack a car and the drug leader takes them to his drug den. Whilst there, Doug Judy manages to escape although Jake and Rosa manage to take down the drug ring. Doug Judy resurfaces revealing that the room service waiter was his accomplice and 'Lobster Thermidor' was code for his accomplice to follow.

Season ThreeEdit

In The Cruise, Doug Judy gives Jake free tickets for him and Amy as he believes somebody is trying to kill him. Jake tries to get him arrested but they are on international waters and only the captain can arrest him. Jake tries to get the Captain to arrest him but he says that he needs Doug Judy and on the boat Doug Judy is a free man. Jake agrees to help him and the three of them follow Amy's itinerary around the ship to escape the hitman. The man Doug Judy believed to be the hitman, Henry Coles is actually a geriatric and Jake is annoyed and thinks that Doug Judy is a liar. However, the hitman is hiding in Judy's room and attempts to kill him. Jake now believes him and agrees to watch him at all times. In the All Ages Piano Lounge, Jake uses Judy as bait to lure out the hitman. It works and Doug Judy is taken off stage by the hitman. Jake and Amy manage to save his life but Doug Judy escapes in a small boat. Doug Judy leaves them the keys to his suite and escapes yet again.

Season Four Edit

In The Fugitive Pt. 1/The Fugitive Pt. 2, Doug Judy is sought out by Jake to help him catch his adopted brother, George Judy, who had just escaped. In exchange for his help, Jake offers to give him full immunity for all his past crimes, which, according to Holt, number around 600. Holt continues to have doubts about Judy actually wanting to help him and Jake. It seemed that Holt's doubt was warranted after Doug Judy helped his brother escape after Holt caught George changing a plate to one of the cars he stole. After Jake tracks where the brothers are, Judy makes George believe that he is on his side and is betraying Jake and Holt. When George tries to shoot Jake, it's revealed that Doug didn't put any bullets in his gun and that he actually was serious about helping them catch George. He is granted full immunity for all his crimes by the end of the episode. He also bought Holt a new car, which he named "Sexarella".

Season FiveEdit

In The NegotiationDoug Judy stages a hostage situation to get Jake's attention, seeking his revenge to help get a criminal off his back after stealing his car.

Season Six Edit

In A Tale of Two Bandits, Doug Judy faked his death because he heard a hit has been put on him by an arms dealer, Stefano Lucas. A number of cars are being jacked, one of which was the arms dealer's favorite Ferrari. Since the M.O. of how the cars have been stolen fits that of the Pontiac Bandit, Doug knows the arms dealer thinks it's him. Only thing is Doug said it wasn't him and Jake, being Jake who trusts and believes his frenemy, deduces that there's a copycat Pontiac Bandit. Doug agrees to work with Jake and Terry Jeffords in tracking down who's the real culprit.


Doug Judy is shown to be immature and has laid back attitude towards situations and a vast love of pop culture, much like Jake - at one point, while being held at the point of a gun, he stated that he didn't want to die because he was still on the second season of Game of Thrones. Smooth, cool, charismatic and charming, Doug Judy never loses his temper and always remains a friendly individual. He is also cunning and intelligent as he is able to outwit and escape Jake Peralta numerous times. He even engages in making fun of the fact that they are archenemies - comparing them joining forces to the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, and starting a theme song throughout their encounter. He also has a sensitive side as he takes Jake and Rosa to see his real mother so he could say goodbye before he leaves. He is capable of disliking people, as he hates his adopted brother (partly for stealing his favourite Phil Collins LP), and is willing to manipulate and betray him. He shows special treatment altogether to Jake, Rosa and Captain Holt: he gives him and Amy privileges after ditching them on a ferry and cooperates several times with him without being malicious, flirting with Rosa, and even finding a new car for Holt after the old one is destroyed. Doug Judy is also extremely protective of his younger sister, Trudy Judy, and is reluctant to believe any wrong doing she does while wanting her to take a different path in life he had.


Jake PeraltaEdit

Jake and Doug Judy have a complicated relationship. On one hand, they get along well although Jake is determined to arrest Doug Judy and considers Judy his arch nemesis. Despite this, Doug Judy has said (possible jokingly) that he considers Jake his best friend and that he loves him. However, Jake has stated that he will hunt Doug Judy to the ends of the Earth. However, in The Fugitive Pt. 2, Jake and Doug work on the same time and consider each other friends and trust each other. Doug Judy pretends that he has betrayed Jake and calls him a "thirsty-ass bitch" but he is later to revealed to be on Jake's side and saves his life. The two part on good terms.

Rosa DiazEdit

Doug Judy has a crush on Rosa Diaz. He continuously sings, "Rosa, Rosa, Rosa" when he sees her. Doug Judy gets Rosa to call him 'Big Sugar' and be nice to him in exchange for helping her and asks her to pose as his wife called Rosa when meeting the drug leader.

Amy SantiagoEdit

Amy and Doug Judy got on well despite their difference in careers. They bonded over Jake's inability to take emotions seriously and Doug Judy called her a fine lady.

Ray HoltEdit

Ray Holt and Doug Judy at first have an uneasy relationship. Holt doesn't trust Doug Judy to his many felonies and demands to join him and Jake on the case. Doug Judy offends Holt by telling him that Gertie is not a nice car. Holt continually believes that Doug Judy is working with George and is seemingly proven right, when Doug pretends that he is on George's side to catch him. However, upon realising that Doug Judy tricks George, Holt apologises. Doug Judy buys Holt a new car to replace "Gertie" called "Sexarella".
