He feels so bad, in fact, he has to head straight to the Pie Hole to comfort himself with sugar. "Slice me up a piece of something fresh and expensive," he snaps at Chuck and Ned behind the counter, "and it better be on the house, because I just saved both of yo' asses a whole pile of grief." He explains about Vivian, plunging Ned and Chuck both into horror. Ned wants to know what Emerson told the sad aunt. "I said 'no need to pay me,'" Emerson continues to snark. "'I know damn well where Dwight is -- buried in the ground where I put him.'" Ha! No, he goes on, he gave her plenty of reasons to forget Dwight. The last thing they need, he says, is somebody investigating the disappearance of Dwight Dixon. RING! As the words leave his mouth, three unknown entities enter the Pie Hole. Without even turning around, Emerson senses danger. "Hide," he tells Chuck and swivels on his stool to greet the new guys. "Hello, Magnus," he says, and is answered by a proclamation. These new guys? Have been hired to investigate the disappearance of Dwight Dixon. Oops.
You know what that was? Nine minutes of uninterrupted TV. I have never wanted so badly to see a commercial in my life, and I get less than TWO MINUTES of break time?! Sometimes I can't describe how much I hate the television... okay, I am over it. All right, so these new guys? They are The Norwegians, a crack forensic team made up of Magnus Olsdatter (Orlando Jones), Nils Nilsson (Michael Weaver) and Hedda Lillihammer (Ivana Milicevic) who used their unparalleled investigative skills for their beloved homeland until Norway, ranked 37th in the world of homicide, no longer deemed their services necessary. Actually, this chart ranks them 54th, which is quite a bit better (dude, what's happening in Kyrgyzstan?) and which surprises me a great deal. Because, I don't know if y'all know this, but Norwegians are KIND OF BADASSES. If you've never seen this documentary where this ponytailed guy goes around the world talking to heavy metal bands and fans and determining which ones of them have surpassed the others in evil, I implore you to check it out, because Norwegians, in general, are on constant alert that they may be attacked by really angry, poorly dressed musicians. It is really, really cold in Norway, okay? And they are mad about it.
