Created by Will Beall and David Ayer, ‘Deputy’ is a police procedural drama that follows Deputy Sergeant Bill Hollister, who doesn’t agree with the workings of the law and strongly believes most of the officers have lost their honor because of the existence of political maneuvering in the department. Bill is asked to step into the position of Acting Sheriff, putting him in a situation which could mean transgressing a moral principle. He reluctantly accepts, aiming to change the system from within.

Deputy Episode 7 Recap
The episode is titled ‘Search and Rescue.’
Episode 7 causes trouble in Bill’s professional as well as personal life. We see David Arquette playing a ruthless pedophile, Roger, who has kidnapped a young woman Tulsa. We see reflections of Bill’s fatherhood as he, along with Cade, successfully saves Tulsa and reunites her with her father.
On the other hand, a sneaky journalist captures Maggie gulping down Midori with her friends. Naturally, it lands in the news and Paula and Bill are furious. No, not because that journalist crossed the lines of privacy but because Maggie was drinking without adult supervision. I mean, they are enraged at the journalist but more upset with their daughter’s carelessness. Honestly, they handle it pretty well. Elsewhere, we learn that Teresa is pregnant!
Meanwhile, Brianna talks to Paula about her sexual identity. She says, “You know, I hate labels, and here I am trying to give myself one.” That’s a bold move, considering Bex (the actor) herself is non-binary.
