The pie-maker with the ability to bring the dead back to life will use his power to solve yet another murder case on tonight’s episode of Pushing Daisies. This time, however, the investigation involves some scrumptious treats and a world-famous recipe. To find out more, read on for a preview of “Comfort Food.”
In the eighth episode of Pushing Daisies‘ sophomore season, Ned (Lee Pace) and Olive (Kristin Chenoweth) enter a comfort food contest. However, the competition takes a twisted turn when a chef is found deep fried and dead. As a result, Ned brings back to life the mysteriously deep fried Colonel Likken, who then asks Ned, Emerson (Chi McBride) and Chuck to find out who stole his world-famous original recipe.
Meanwhile, Lily (Swoosie Kurtz) discovers Chuck (Anna Friel) is alive as she spies on Vivian who is spied on by Chuck. Furthermore, Chuck enlists the help of Emerson in dealing with the consequences of her actions.
In addition to the food-themed murder case, tonight’s episode also features a musical number by Olive, who sings “Eternal Flame” by The Bangles.
