Back at the Pie Hole, Ned is realizing with dread how close he might have come to sharing Kentucky's fate while doing his little trick on the roof in his shorts. "I could have been swarmed in my underwear," he shivers, and Emerson berates him for assaulting his imagination. Chuck feels bad for Kentucky. It was a horrible way to die, she says, being stung by thousands of little stingers. "Like little stinging secrets," Olive says, flatly, arriving at the table with pie. "They don't just sting you once; they keep stinging you until you're bloated and full of pus." And it is a measure of her greatness that the Chenoweth made that sound so cute. The thing is, I almost could not even hear what she was saying, because the soundtrack is turned up so very loud here. Don't drown yourself in your own awesomeness, show. The music is fantastic, but I have to squint my ears to hear the dialogue sometimes, and that is a crime. Anyway, they note that Kentucky was probably killed because of her attempts to sabotage Betty's Bees. "Boy, Kentucky sure had it in for Betty," Chuck says, "but who had it in for Kentucky?" Ned shivers: "The Terrifying Bee Man." Chuck, loving the horror, wonders if Kentucky couldn't see her killer's face because he didn't have one, because he was really just a swarm of bees walking around in a people shape. What if, she goes on, there's a whole society of people-shaped bee swarms strolling the streets out there, and they don't even know! Despite this nightmare image, Ned smiles. "You're thinking of how you can train your bees to walk around in people shapes, aren't you?" Chuck: "yep."
