Back at the Honey House, the gang has discovered that, in fact, the hive was not at all sabotaged. "Damn!" Emerson says, as they walk into the house-sized hive. "You know, suddenly the crazy cat lady don't seem so crazy anymore." You want the truth about the Terrifying Bee Man? Here it is: Yeah, Kentucky was sabotaging Woolsy's beehive, but she was doing it with and for Betty, who loved her like a sister. And she wasn't killing the bees, she was moving them back to the honey house. No way was Betty going to let Woolsy have her bees -- since he started heading up Betty's Bees, all Betty's Bees products contained sixty percent less honey, including the honey. So, Betty knows Woolsy probably killed Kentucky, but to prove it she'd have to admit stealing her hive away from the company, in which case she'd be in big trouble. Plus, she probably can't prove that Woolsy is the Terrifying Bee Man, unless they could somehow get his DNA off one of his bees. A HA! Chuck sees the way.
Moments later they burst upon Woolsy, queen bee case in hand. The facts, they find out, were these: Woolsy was madly in love with ol' Kentucky. He swore to make her the new face of Betty's Bees, for which Kentucky only pretended to be appreciative. When, loyal to Betty, she began sabotaging his bees, Woolsy discovered the plot and killed her. "Betrayed and broken hearted, but not sloppy," Jim Dale tells us, Woolsy killed Betty in a way that would indicate accidental death. Found out, he confesses all. He never knew that Betty had stolen back her colony, so Betty got to start all over at the Honey House, making sweet Dusty her new partner in memory of their beloved Kentucky.
Realizing that his own colony has not collapsed, Jim Dale says, and that it had only expanded into his and her suites, Ned did what he could to make Olive's apartment into a comfortable home for her. Taking her things off Vivian's hands, he moves Chuck's books and her special pillow into her new place. "The Pie Maker learned that home did not mean four walls and a door you never walk out of," JD closes. "Home was a feeling of where you belong." For Emerson, he says, home was Li'l Gum Shoe. Emerson may have insisted that the work was fictional, but if necessary, could serve as a how-to manual for an audience of one. Sob! Emerson's daughter! I can't wait until she shows up. Back in the nunnery, Olive attempts to find herself and, in fact, make some new friends with some locals like another of the convent's charges, a cute-as-hell pig. "Hiya, Pigby," she says, as he wanders in, and it warms my whole heart. Chuck, meanwhile, feels right at home in the Pie Hole, but... what's this? Someone else is there, who may not> belong: Ned's dad.
