Wilfred: Anger / Season: 1 / Episode: 8 (00010008) (2011)
Production Code: 00010008
August 11, 2011
When Wilfred discovers an old collar from Ryan's Jack Russell Terrier from twenty years ago, he becomes periodically possessed by the ghost of "Sneakers", Ryan's old dog who he thought he killed when he left the gate to his pool open and Sneakers drowned. Ryan must assist Kristen with hosting a party for her boss, who she is trying to impress to get ahead with a promotion. Wilfred ends up demolishing the party and nearly killing Kristen and another party goer when he pushes them into the pool along with an electrified cart which Ryan unplugs a series of plugs in order to save Kristen's life. After the party, Ryan snaps at Kristen and she breaks down, ultimately revealing that she left the gate open and offers to pay off the rest of the $5,000 that Ryan owes her. They make up and Kristen affectionately apologizes for hating Wilfred, and asks to pet him, until he knocks a glass of red wine all over her robe.
