Dad caught Nedly making time with his daughter. That's against the rules. Ned kicks all the other customers out of the Pie Hole, by way of making up a gas leak, chock full of radon covered in asbestos. But when he turns around Charles Charles is gone. Ned hears a noise in the kitchen and Chuck's dad is looking for a snack, some cake. Apparently he doesn't like chocolate. What kind of person is he? Seriously. Charles Charles has it all worked out. He'll just tell people he's a burn victim. He's been walking around for an hour, and no one has even noticed him. Or at least no one has run screaming. He wants to know why he should play by the rules when Ned clearly isn't. Much as I kind of hate him, and really am not a fan of this whole bizarre storyline, he does raise some very good points. I can see why Lily liked him. Charles Charles says that no one will be after him, they'll all want Ned and his Alive Again pointer finger. Giving a visual demo by tossing an apple at Ned that shrivels and dies ... again. Ned insists that no one cared about Dr. Frankenstein, they were only after his monster. Point for Ned. He then says that Charles Charles is putting Chuck's life in danger. Another point for Ned. But Charles Charles grabs a mop and starts attacking Ned, who only has a broom in defense. This physical squabble ends with Ned shutting Charles Charles in a closet. And Ned looks surprised at himself.
Olive and Emerson head into the sea caves. Olive says if she sees McQuoddy she'll just die. Not in the whole bloddy horror movie kind of way, like the way you'd freak if you saw a celebrity. She does love her urban legends after all. Then she starts screaming when she actually sees him. She puts on a brave front at least. Elliot's apparently off gathering supplies, so at least he won't be trying to cop a feel. Olive says she knows all about the "McQuoddy Family Killers Cruise." Catchy. Merle said that he wanted to come back to his happy life, but Nora, despite her pining, had moved on. Or "found her bearings" as the case may be. Merle headed back to the caves where he's comfortable and that's where he was when Nora was offed. Emerson doesn't understand why he didn't go to the police. Simple. Merle: "Because I'm a ghost with an alibi as thin as fishing line." Elliot cooked up the plan to sail away. But Emerson wants to know why Elliot didn't tell them about his future stepfather. Apparently Nora didn't tell her son. Merle doesn't know who Nora's lover was, but he found a trinket that might help. Olive recognizes it immediately as a Dutch Love Spoon. Something that is given to women as a symbol of sweetness that they'll feed each other forever. Of course Olive is an expert on this. She's read the entire Harlequin library. Emerson sees that the spoon says A.P. Hearts N.M. Who is A.P? Seems likely that it is a Papen, since it is Papen County, and they are a Dutch family. But which one, they are such a vast family. Emerson says there's only one named Augustus. The trio says Gus Papen all at the same time. A-ha! Just like a Scooby Doo mystery. Merle tries to claim he figured it out first.
