Recap: Pushing Daisies S 1 E 8 Bitter Sweets

The Past

Ned makes a friend in a boy named Eugene who, unlike the voluntarily isolated Ned, is ostracized for being different. The friendship quickly meets an obstacle, however, when Ned accidentally revives a pile of dead leaves the pair play in one day.

The Present

Ned and Chuck decide to assign themselves the boyfriend/girlfriend label, leaving Olive too morose to notice that alternative medicine salesman Alfredo is still trying to woo her.

Meanwhile, brother and sister team Billy and Dilly Balsam open up a candy store across the street from the Pie Hole. Chuck and Olive are instantly defensive about the Pie Hole and its future. Ned, calmer, makes friendly overtures, but the Balsams soon make it clear that their intentions are anything but neighborly. It's not long before all-out war is raging between the two shops... and Ned's stoic pacifism looks more and more like conflict avoidance.
