"We are in a crisis, people," Emerson mutters to Ned and Chuck as Olive angrily walks around with her fingers in her ears, indicating that she is not listening to their secrets. It is agreed that they need to cut these Norse fools off at the source. But, as Chuck points out, they also need to find Daddy Deadbucks pronto mundo. If the Norwegians happen upon him first, he may use that opportunity to tell the world about Ned's powers, thus eliminating Ned from Chuck's life for good. Emerson is forced to agree with that plan, but they still need someone on the job to talk Vivian into firing the rival PIs. The lightbulb goes off. "Oh, Itty Bitty," Emerson says sweetly, and Olive is back in the game. Upstairs later, Chuck tries to explain the whole thing to Olive without explaining anything at all. "All I can tell you," she says, "is if you don't convince Vivian to call off her investigation... then we are going to be in a lot of trouble." Olive: "What'd you do, kill Dwight?" Uh... She continues, smiling: "I'm just kidding! You didn't, did you?" Poor Chuck throws her hands in the air. No, she says, but she still can't tell Olive the whole story. "Oh, Hell's Bells!" Olive rants. "The least you can do is lie!" She says that no one seems to care that they keep leaving her out of the supersecret powwows. Chuck swears it's just to protect her, but Olive insists she doesn't need protection. "That's what I have several longstanding restraining orders for," she says. She needs to feel appreciated, and like she belongs, she says, and insists on receiving a full-fledged membership to the PIpalooza. Aw. I guess she means she'll accept that membership after the job is done, because she heads to Chez Aunts without getting the scoop.
Things there don't go so well, despite the presence of one truly delicious-looking pie.
