I don't know where the ammeter is connected.Yes you do, follow the wiring:

So there is at least one path from plate to plate through the ammeter.No there isn't, the power supply has been disconnected, so the only connnection to the live plate is the insulated support on the stand, and the electroscope.
Is there any discernible pattern or explanation for the deflections shown on the ammeter during this part of the demonstration?Yes, as above, the knob is on the live side of the meter.
