Olive convinces the aunts to help the carrier pigeon deliver his message, and pushes the plan even further by telling them that, when their mission is complete, they'll celebrate at the Pie Hole. The aunts ask, appropriately enough, why they would go out to get pie when there is a pie delivered to them, like, every five minutes.
Back at the actual scene of the crime, someone finally got around to hanging one "X" of police tape in front of the door, but then never got around to locking the door on the way out. Ned and Emerson reenter the premises, this time on a mission to find Chuck and her new special friend who may or may not be Conrad. Ned finds evidence of the two of them having had coffee together, which sends him into some anxiety. Just at this moment, though, they dig up some plot where they least expect it, when the table underneath the coffee cups reveals yet another dead man. Ned does the finger jive and the man in the coffee table wakes up. Ned asks if the man hijacked the plane, and the man responds that the plane flew into his apartment. Emerson wants to know, then, who Conrad is, at which point the man in the coffee table indicates the embroidery on his very own shirt reading, "Conrad." Well then who is it Chuck has been drinking coffee with right next to a dead man's coffee table? One quick edit until we find out!
Back at the Pie Hole, Chuck and Not-rad enter, Chuck asking if Not-rad likes pie. Because we are about to find out he is pure eeeeeeeeeeevil, Not-rad mutters under his breath, "It would be criminal not to like pie." I'm sorry, but what is this Shakespearean aside indicating the character's inner thoughts? How cartoonishly evil is this person? Is this Charles Grodin in The Great Muppet Caper, all, "That's what you think, Miss Piggy!" as soon as her back is turned? Why so dark all of a sudden? Did he read the script and know he's about to be found out?
And so they eat pie, Not-rad telling Chuck that he has to start over now that a plane has flown into his living room. She tells him that she had to start over once, and he puts his hand on hers. The Narratour tells us that Chuck meant to pull her hand away, but that it was kind of nice to have someone actually be able to touch her for once. Not-rad asks if the man in the apartment -- "the one who took a step back to let you fall" -- was her boyfriend. Chuck asks Not-rad to hold her hand for a minute and not say anything, and Chuck opens her eyes to see herself holding hands with Ned. Ack! Even seeing this in a fantasy sequence I'm like, "Yo, girlfriend be dead." That's how convincing this show is. That's how much I spend every episode being like, "You guys are standing way too close to one another. You don't want to brush up against each other. You need to be more careful!"
