As the a capella quartet trudges down to the lobby, a yellow-slicker clad person stands by the door, locking them all in. Sadly, it's not just a missing baritone as Emerson hoped. Instead it's Annabelle. "So much for keeping the innocent victim count down." Lovely. And despite Olive's hope that she "toots glitter," that's a string of gunpowder on the ground. Arranged in a very decorative and neat manner. Of course. Her husband Adolf, the munitions manufacturer, left her the remaining inventory. Such a useful legacy. She's been saving it for a rainy day. Gus wants to know why. She's bitter that he tossed their love aside. He thought it was one night, she thought it was deep and special. She's cuckoo bananas, and wielding an enormous match. She hoped that Merle's return would break up Nora and Gus, but alas, she had to take matters into her own hands. Gus adds fuel to the flame saying he still loves Nora. She lights the match. He doesn't understand how killing all these people will solve anything. Olive's on it: "I do, I do! When you called me sad Ms. Snook, oh, it really honked me off, but now I realize that you recognized sadness in me because you had it in you. The rest of you don't know what it's like to know in your heart that you love somebody and if you could only eliminate everybody else, maybe he'd finally, finally grasp what you've been trying to show him. That feeling you've been dying to recapture..."
Annabelle: "If only for a moment..."
Olive: "But that moment never comes, so what do you do? Decide not to love Ned?"
Olive: "Gus, Gus. See, I've tried that."
Annabelle: "Me too!"
Olive: "Did it work?"
Annabelle: "Heck, no!"
Olive: "So you know what I say?"
We will never find out as the a cappella group kicks in and we see Annabelle being shut into the slammer to serve her 30 year prison sentence.
Jim Dale tells us, while the a capella group continues to sing "Candle on the Water," that Elliot and Merle joined forces in the Papen venture to turn the lighthouse into a spa. They used the cash to go on fishing adventures around the world. Emerson is afloat in a sea of reward money from the Papen Country Historical Society. He shares the cash with Olive, the junior P.I. in training. She says she learned from the best. She turns to leave, but Emerson's got to make sure that she's not going to go all Annabelle Vandersloop on Chuck or any other Pie Hole peeps. She says she's still in love with Ned, and she burns and yearns for him, but there will be no harpooning. Emerson does the sweetest thing ever, and tells her that if being around the too cute duo ever gets too insufferable for her, she's welcome to work for him. All she's got to do is ask. He even hands her a cigar. Olive: "Emerson Cod. I think I may be winning you over." Emerson: "Itty Bitty. You made me love a rainy day again." And this normally unforgiving TV critic's heart grew three sizes that day. Seriously. This show. It just does things to me.
