Yes, a new episode of quirky and short-lived ABC series Pushing Daisies is set to air tomorrow night, but before you go off celebrating, the episode is the first in the comedy's last three before it bids goodbye, for good this time. The unaired episodes, in fact, have all aired in the UK.
In "Window Dressed to Kill," Emerson (Chi McBride) enlists the help of Chuck (Anna Friel) to investigate the murder of a window dresser when Ned (Lee Pace) declares he's no longer using his "gift" to solve crimes. Meanwhile, Olive (Kristin Chenoweth) gets a blast from her past when the two cons she convinced to kidnap her as a child so she would finally get her parents' attention break out of jail and ask for her help.
In a recent interview, Chenoweth, 40, who received an Emmy nom for her role on Pushing Daisies
, said that the remaining episodes of the show won't wrap up the season neatly. To fill in the gap, the singer-actress said creator Bryan Fuller has an idea for a movie.
"It would wrap up a lot of the unanswered questions that people will have once they finally air our final episodes," she said. "I'm sure that Bryan Fuller wouldn't do it without the six main characters," she said. "Paul Reubens was a big part of it -- we have certain guest stars that are standouts that we'd want back. But he has such a great idea for it. ... We all want to."
The subsequent two episodes will air June 6th and 13th and on the series finale, Ned, Chuck, and Emerson go undercover to solve the murder when one-half of the synchronized swimming duo The Aquadolls (guest stars Nora Dunn and Wendie Malick) meets an unfortunate past and the Darling Mermaid Darlings get a chance to come out of retirement at a traveling water circus.- Glenn Diaz, BuddyTV Staff columnist
