Pushing Daisies: Robbing Hood

(S02E07) "You'd have to watch him die all over again." - Ned to Chuck

The case of the week was interesting and fun to watch unfold, however, it's not what we will remember about this week's installment of the soon-to-be-ending Pushing Daisies. What we will remember is how Dwight discovered that Chuck is alive, Lily fuming and drinking to a point that she points a gun at Dwight and decides to take matters in her own hands, and that oh so not important little scene in which Chuck and Ned unearth Charles Charles.

Who is Dwight Dixon? That's what our favorite sleuths and myself have been wondering. Since I don't have access to information about the man, they have to do all the digging for me. Sadly, I'm starting to be a tad impatient at the lack of information about the man. What do we really no about him? He may or may not be named Dwight Dixon, he loves guns, he wanted Charles' pocket watch really badly for god knows why, he has a heart of stone that slightly melted thanks to Vivian, and he claims he knows Charles Charles. No much, eh? I know it's all part of the plan, to keep Dwight as much a mystery as possible for a while, but I'm ready for answers especially since we also have to wonder why is that watch so important. Is there something magical happening when the two watches are reunited? Will they have access to the Fortress of Solitude? Or maybe it's the equivalent of Scylla? Why do you think the watches are so important? Let us know about your theories in comments below.

Lily rocks! I could watch a whole hour of the Olive and Lily show. Olive is upbeat and optimistic while Lily is dark and pessimistic. We definitely saw the ugly side of Lily this week when she started to drink a lot to cope with the fact that Vivian was dating Dwight. Lily was right on the money when thinking that Dwight was up to no good. But I'm afraid she may have made a mistake by taking the watches. The man was willing to unearth Chuck to get the watch, so he is surely willing to kill for them. Since he thinks that Chuck stole the watches, he'll set his sight on her and you know this means that things will get really ugly. What I'm interested in is what Lily will do next. The narrator hinted to the fact that Lily may think Dwight found more than the watch in the casket, so will Lily try to find out what else he knows or will she be satisfied with the watches and leave it to that? My hunch is that she'll try to find out what he knows. Lily wants to protect her secrets and Dwight is a threat that must be taken out. It wouldn't surprise me if she ends up pointing another gun at him.

The most interesting part of this week's episode was Ned's dilemma when reviving Charles Charles was concerned. At first, he didn't want to revive Charles again so that Chuck wouldn't have to go through her father dying a second time. He knew that Chuck would love to talk to her father even for a mere minute but the consequences of killing him for good when touching him a second time outweighed the good reviving him would cause. Events and Chuck made him change his mind. Even if Ned was finally on board to revive Charles, he knew that bad could come of it once he "killed" Charles and properly warned Chuck. The latter may be ready to face the consequences but how will she react to seeing Ned kill her father? Then again, that is IF she lets Ned touch Charles a second time...

Seeing Chuck and Ned open Charles Charles' casket raised a series of questions I share with you: What will the duo do after Ned touches Charles? Who'll talk first? Will they really ask him about Dwight or will Ned tell Chuck to use the full minute to say goodbye to her father? How does Charles look like? After all, he died 20 years ago so he surely doesn't look as good as the victim of the week. Will Ned be able to touch Charles again, thus killing him a second time? Will Chuck be able to let her father go? What will happen if Ned doesn't touch Charles again? Who? What? When? Why? How? !!! Thank god I have spoilers to keep me sane until the next new episode! If you want to be really spoiled and get some answers to my questions, click here.

Oh, and in case you were like me and were wondering where you saw that hot blonde widow before? That's Jennifer Elise Cox and you probably remember her as Jan Brady in The Brady Bunch Movie and its sequel. Star Trek: Voyager's Ethan Phillips also guest starred in "Robbing Hood." In case you didn't recognize him without his Neelix makeup, he played Daniel Hill, the lawyer.

Do you think Ned should keep Charles Charles alive after he revives him next week?

I think the three watches have something to do with Ned's ability. I think Dwight may then know how Chuck could have been buried and is also alive.

Lily was the angriest when she saw Chuck's grave had been disturbed and she took the watches believing that one of them was Chucks. She will probably hire Emerson to find out why the watches were so important that Dwight stole it from a grave (of course not telling him that it was her daughter's grave).

Didn't Dwight say there were three watches when he was first introduced? One was his and the other two belonged to his war buddies of which Charles Charles was one. He has his and the other guys and need Charles to complete the set. Possibly a treasure map?

When Dwight was introduced I believe he said that there are three watches and he has two of them. One is his own and the second is not Chuck's but the other guy in the photo with Charles.

Lily was angriest that Dwight dug up her daughter. Lily won't be satisfied with the two watches because she will need to know what was so important that he would dig up Chuck. She probably thinks the second watch is from the grave.

Was it just me or was that Crystal Dahl ("Dead Like Me"'s Crystal Smith, the Happy Time receptionist) eating at the Pie Hole late-ish in the episode?

Are we so sure that Chuck's father is dead or in the coffin? The way they cut when they opened his coffin, I thought perhaps they had found an empty one, like when Dwight opened Chuck's.

I'm a bit confused: how did Dwight get the pocket watch? I saw him pick it up, but I wasn't sure where the watch was when he picked it up, or how he got to where it was. And why hasn't Chuck expressed any concern about the fact that her father's watch is missing?

@Nancy: Dwight is definitely old enough to be the father of both Ned and Chuck, or at least the actor is old enough. He's the same age as the actress who plays Vivian, according to IMDB.com: 57, plenty old enough to have fathered 30ish people.

One thing is evident, Dwight isn't the fmr fiance of Vivian. She would have known instantly. He's too young to be dad of Ned or Chuck.
