Bee Mine

Saddened though she may be by this ageism, Chuck is nonetheless thrilled to accept Woolsy's offer to call Betty's Bees her new home. "Chuck has a new home, I blame you," Ned says in frustration as he and Emerson listen in on Chuck's hidden bee microphone. Emerson smiles at Chuck's successful mission: "I blame me, too. That went well!" Yes, it went so well that the newly hired Chuck is now checking out her new office -- Kentucky's old office -- in the hive for clues. Immediately, she finds one: an old key marked with the number "88." She also finds, a little surprisingly, Betty Bee, hiding in the office storage cabinet. Betty, who was clearly up to something, is not overly friendly to the new girl, calling Woolsy's quick replacement of Kentucky distasteful. "It also speaks to the efficiency of your human resources department," Chuck says, cheerfully, but her niceness does nothing to soften Betty, who we see quickly pocket the key Chuck had just found in the drawer. "I wonder how else he'll be replacing Kentucky," she rants, trying to make a quick exit. "Seeing as I'm a withered hag, tired by every grain of sand in the hourglass... and after what happened to Kentucky, well, no one wants to think of that when they're buying lip balm." Missi Pyle, who plays Betty, is fab, as she is in everything she does. She snatches up the key from Kentucky's desk and flits out to her own office, followed by the obviously unwelcome Chuck. "I just wanted to say what an honor it is to be working with you," Chuck says. Betty: "Thank you. Get out." And so, Jim Dale tells us, Chuck got out.

Back at the Pie Hole, the team goes over the possibilities. Is Betty Bee, Ned wonders, a co-conspirator or just the straight-up killah? Chuck reminds everyone that Betty, surely angry about Kentucky replacing her as the face of the company, did have a motive for murder. "But," Ned says, "Kentucky was sabotaging Betty's Bees, trademark, which is own by Woolsy Nichols, so that gives Woolsy motive." Emerson says, though, that Woolsy is a businessman, more likely to set a swarm of lawyers on someone than a swarm of bees. "I know," Olive says, once again coming in from nowhere, this time with dirty plates from the restaurant. "They were lovers of the same sex persuasion, and the key is for their love nest." Ned shakes his head saying they've ruled out workplace romance. "I'll just cross that off my list then," Olive says, with slight bitterness, while Chuck moonily gazes at Ned, saying she has not ruled out workplace romance. Emerson can't resist twisting the knife in poor Olive. "Romance does give you motive," he says, with a pointed stare in her direction. "Somebody always lovin' somebody they shouldn't be lovin'." Olive scowls at him and turns to watch Chuck, who is dosing a new pie with "vanilla," she says, for her aunts. Oh, but Olive knows it's not vanilla -- that's yet another secret she's having to carry around. She knows Chuck has been jacking up the pies with anti-depressants, a fact that came crashing down on her when she herself accidentally overdosed one causing Lily to wig out, confess that she is Chuck's mother in front of Olive, and thus subsequently ban Olive from the aunt's house in order to keep the secret safe from Vivian. BREATH! I know these sentences are running on, but hell, I've already had to type it all out about 12 times! Don't we all GET IT already? Stop with the internal recapping, show, I beg of you!
