“Prepare to be amazed! There has not been this much talent around a body of water since Moses played the Red Sea.”
– Chuck, about the Aquacade

Pushing Daisies, at its core, has always been a show about love. About what it makes us do. About how it makes us feel. About how it worms its way into every facet of our lives. But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Pushing Daisies is just as committed to examining the darker side of love as it to examining its positive side. Lily’s affair with Charles Charles represents that darker side, and its consequences are still being felt today. On the bright side, it brought Charlotte into Lily and Vivian’s lives; on the other hand, Lily has wrestled with the secret of her daughter’s parentage for thirty years, succumbing to self-loathing and alcoholism in the process.

The previous episode left open the question of whether or not love was worth it. Does the good outweigh the bad? “Kerplunk” gives a fairly definitive answer to that question. More

“That year, Young Emerson learned his most important lesson: love makes you stupid.”
– The Narrator

Pushing Daisies is in large part a series about love. The characters are all driven by love for each other, even when they disagree with one another. For that reason, it’s strange for an episode like “Water & Power” to ask whether or not love is worth it. It’s as if the episode is questioning the very foundation of the series. More

“You know, now that I’m out of dead-waking and back to just pie-baking and no longer touching dead fruit, I can eat my own pie.”
– Ned

Ned is adjusting to life as a normal person who doesn’t use his superpowers. Meanwhile, Olive is wrestling with her feelings for Ned once again, after Ned’s admission that he could have imagined being with her. These two character journeys are set to collide, and the result might not be pleasant. More
