Season 2

Pushing Daisies revolves around the life of Ned, a pie maker gifted with the mysterious ability to bring dead things back to life by touching them.

There are a couple of conditions to the somewhat unwanted talent, however. Ned quickly learns that if something is revived for more than exactly one minute something of similar "life value" in the vicinity drops dead, in a form of balance.

Additionally, if he touches the revived thing a second time, it goes back to being dead again, permanently. No amount of his prodding will ever bring it back again.

Grown up Ned puts his talent to good use by touching dead fruit and making it ripe with everlasting flavour. He opens a pie shop.

But his gift leaves him wary of becoming close to anyone, as beautiful waitress Olive Snook finds out.

His life as a pie maker gets more complicated when private investigator Emerson Cod finds out about Ned's secret.

Emerson convinces the cash-strapped Ned to help him solve murder cases (and collect the hefty reward fees) by raising the dead and getting them to name their killers.

Then Ned is handed the case that changes his life forever. His childhood sweetheart, Charlotte "Chuck" Charles, is murdered on a cruise ship under strange circumstances.

Her death brings him back to his hometown of Coeur d' Coeurs to bring Chuck back to life, albeit briefly, and solve the crime.

But once reunited with Chuck, Ned can't bring himself to send her back. He helps her escape after her grieving aunts, Lily and Vivian, former synchronized swimmers Darling Mermaid Darlings, think they've buried her forever.

Chuck becomes the third partner in Ned and Emerson's PI enterprise, but she encourages them to use their skills for good, not just for profit. Ned is overjoyed to be reunited with Chuck, the only girl he's ever loved.

Life would be perfect, except for one cruel twist - if he ever touches her again, she'll go back to being dead, this time for good.

On the Season 2 premiere of Pushing Daisies, Chuck goes undercover as a "Bee Girl" at a honey-based cosmetics company after their new spokesmodel (guest star Autumn Reeser) is stung to death.

She soon discovers that office politics are killer (literally) between the founder (guest star Missi Pyle as Betty Bee) and the new owner (guest star French Stewart as Woolsey Nicholls).

Meanwhile, Ned can't stand her growing independence or the fact that she wants to move out of his apartment.

In other developments, Lily spirits Olive off to a nunnery so she won't spill Lily's deep, dark secret.
