Has Robbie been made deputy for a day? He's the one who has to explain Joseph's disappearance to RevCam. He tells some ridiculous story about the police suspecting Ramon's old girlfriend of snatching Joseph. Why would she do that? There's some bullshit about her being peeved when Ramon married Joy's mother instead of her, so she's been harassing the family ever since. Wow. What a stupid plot. And what does it have to do with RevCam, anyway? Well, explains Deputy Robbie, the local police are trying to involve a judge and "the police in Arizona," but it's "complicated." You bet it's complicated. I guess Brenda Hampton's too busy chortling over putting her name on food props to bother researching even the most rudimentary facts about law or police procedure. That must be why she has Deputy Robbie suggesting, "They want to just get someone neutral to take back the dog and see if they can get the police to help grab the kid." Of course RevCam is that "someone neutral." What a clever plan! It's either that or have RevCam dress up like Murray the dog and hang around the ex-girlfriend's property in Arizona until he can snatch back the little boy. That's about as realistic as what they came up with. It's hard to tell whether Robbie means that RevCam is the one who should convince the Arizona police to get involved in this case, or whether Detective Michaels will be taking care of that -- not that he can force anyone in Arizona to do anything, seeing as how he has no jurisdiction there. But why am I even wasting my time trying to find sense in this plot? I'm sure there is none.
The next morning, Deputy Robbie is talking to Cruella in the CamKitchen about how he didn't sleep at all last night. Hey, but what's he doing still in Glenoak? I thought for sure he would have been an important part of Detective Michaels' lynch mob over in Arizona. Dopey comes in and comments that Joy and her mother probably didn't sleep very well last night either. Since we've never even seen Joy's mother -- and I suspect we never will -- as far as I'm concerned, she doesn't count even as a fictional character. Dopey offers to bring Robbie over to Joy's house to wait for news. Before they can leave, though, Cruella starts interrogating The Dopester about Heather. She reveals that she'd hoped Heather was "the one." Dopey says she isn't, but that he had hoped so too. So, um, what the hell purpose did it serve even to have Heather on this week's show? It was so, so pointless.
Up in the girls' room, Mary is staring at that ugly plastic see-through phone. Ruthie says she knows Mary is thinking of calling Wilson. Why anyone would want to do that is a mystery to me. But why Mary would want to do that -- since everyone keeps focusing on the fact that she's not in love with Wilson -- is an even bigger mystery. Besides, I just don't want to see Wilson and his horrid little son ever again, dammit.
