Here we are again, with episode 3 of this amazing show. The plot is beginning to get thicker as the cast is also expanding. I was really happy to see more lines in this episode from characters other than Ned and Chuck (still no cute name for them), such as Olive. The episode begins with yet another explanation of Ned’s powers. I understand that some new viewers need a little catching up, but could they not figure it out on their own? Anyway, this explanation involves young Ned reviving flies near a bug zapper. It is also when he discovers the one-minute rule. Back in the present, we discover that Ned keeps plenty of flowers in his freezer, not for decoration, but for something to die in place of the fruit that he freshens. Very clever and something we would definitely expect from our deathly hero. Chuck and Ned have their first kiss via saran wrap, thank goodness. This really upsets Olive, who then proceeds to fall for a traveling salesman that is at the pie shop. This salesman, Alfonso, sells anti-depressants. He also just happens to use his own products.
