At the aunts' house, Vivian comforts a devastated Lily as they deal with the news that Chuck's body is really gone. The next day, Ned works out his own issues in the kitchen. He's decided to retire the magic finger. No more using it to revive dead fruit, no more using it to re-alive dead people. He's done. From now on, he tells Chuck, crimefighting is Emerson's business, and baking pies is his. Chuck is distraught and says that since her dad fixed everything, Ned shouldn't give up detecting. "I don't want your dad, or anyone else's to fight my battles," he says, "or clean up my messes. That's it." But, you know, that's not really it. For, as Jim Dale tells us, though Ned had taken responsibility for his own actions, he was wrong about who was responsible for other stuff. It wasn't Chuck's dad who fixed this particular mess. It was his own.
