But the changing culture of their neighborhood has forced them to close. With the blessing of their wives, they move both their families to a small town to open a new shop. Upon their arrival, some of the locals mistake them for mobsters in witness protection after seeing a reality show.

As it turns out, one of the local cowboys is a Wiseguy in witness protection. He is not happy with the attention that is now being brought to the town. Will the people he’s hiding from now find him?

During the season, more of the family friends come to visit them and inadvertently add to the persona. Mike’s ex-partner from the NYPD, Rocko Chen, is thought to be Yakuzza. Tony’s daughter Katie, misses her hipster boyfriend Justin, yet when he comes to visit, he is thought to be a hitman.
