final days of daisies


ABC will be showing the final three episodes of Pushing Daisies on Saturday nights at 10pm ET starting TONIGHT. Don't miss these final chances to shake your fist at the network television gods for cancelling this lovely show.

If you need a refresher, season 2 episodes are still up on If you don't have time for that, here are the basics (spoiler warning if you haven't watched this season yet):
  • Ned brought Chuck's dad back to life to find out the truth about shady Dwight Dixon, and Chuck sneakily kept him alive. Can't blame the girl. But then dad skipped town with a mummy-wrapped face and Ned's car.
  • Consequently, Dwight Dixon died from the proximity curse associated with Ned's powers, as he was spying on them in the graveyard. Chuck and Emerson promptly bury him in Chuck's dad's grave.
  • Ned and Olive's lives are saved by a mysterious hand as they were hanging off a cliff (just after Ned told Olive he had feelings for her in the past). Everyone thinks Chuck's dad saved the day.
  • Ned's dad is George Hamilton. And he actually saved Ned and Olive's lives. But no one (except us) knows either of these things.
  • Ned has decided to stop using his powers because bad stuff keeps happening.
  • Vivian was head over heels for Dwight Dixon. Poor dear. He's dead as a door nail. But someone moved him from Chuck's dad's grave to a motel room where he was pronounced dead of natural causes. My money is on Ned's dad.
Phew. That was exhausting.

In tonight's episode - "Window Dressed to Kill" - Emerson enlists Chuck's help to investigate the murder of a window dresser when Ned declares he's no longer using his "gift" to solve crimes.
