Their cheap plugs. Not your normal plug, you push the wire into a metal clips. Only thing I can think of is it's not wired right for power. Last plug has two blacks together, then two whites together and then grounds. Any ideas.
The outlet you find as the "last" is not the last. One black/white lead to the outlet is the supply, the second set of wires is heading to another outlet in the circuit. Internally is probably a continuous cable. See if you can ID the closest outlet the the GFCI breaker. Read the voltage to either side of the outlet and if good proceed to the next nearest outlet. Eventually the power will not be present so go back to the last one with voltage. Thats where the connection is bad. That style of outlet is special due to its shallow depth. The prong connectors are quite good when made up properly. The last outlet will only have one black and white because there's nothing else to feed. Don't overlook the outdoor recep, its also required to be on a GFCI circuit and will be part of the loop.
