In the season finale last season, Jenna (Wilfred's owner) had to take a drug test for a new job she was being hired for. When she took the drug test, she discovered that she was pregnant so she got back together with her old boyfriend, Drew (Chris Klein). Wilfred got hit by a car and afterwards had amnesia and did not remember Ryan. The season ended with Ryan running back to his house remembering a will Wilfred was writing before the accident. Ryan tried to open the door to his basement only to discover it was a closet. A tennis ball (linking back to the first episode of the season) rolled out of the closet, leaving Ryan puzzled.
This season picked up four months later, where Ryan is in a mental institution. He apparently hasn't seen Jenna or Wilfred in that time, but, after talking with his therapist, he meets them only to learn that Jenna and Drew have broken up. Wilfred (handicapped due to his accident in the first season finale) talks with him about why Ryan sees Wilfred as a man, Ryan's therapist ups his dosage of pills, and eventually tries to give Ryan electroshock therapy. Wilfred and Bear break Ryan out of the mental institution, only for Ryan to realize that the entire mental institution, and the events of the episode so far, are a daydream. Ryan actually has a new, boring corporate job, and the hallucinations he had been having periodically throughout the episode of sitting at a table with co-workers and holding a tennis ball are actually his real-life job. Ryan goes home, where he sees Jenna and Drew embracing, assumed to be still dating, outside of his house. Inside, Ryan goes to the closet, breaks through the wall, and finds the basement where he and Wilfred had hung out during the first season, but everything is boarded up and dusty. He finds Wilfred's will, which only says one sentence: "Keep digging," a metaphoric piece of advice to Ryan. Ryan then proceeds to clean up the basement, even getting out his bong and putting it on the table, hinting that he will continue to hang out with Wilfred.
