!The Past
A brief recap of the main events of Season 1. Encouraged by her aunts, Chuck takes up bee-keeping after the death of her father.

!The Present
It's been over six months since the events of "[[Recap/PushingDaisiesS1E9Corpsicle Corpsicle]]", and Chuck is beginning to feel restless, the same dissatisfaction with her life that, a year before, prompted her to take that ill-fated cruise.

When Olive snaps under the pressure of being everyone's SecretKeeper, Aunt Lily suggests an extended stay at the remote convent where she herself stayed, thirty years previously, when secretly pregnant with Chuck. Olive agrees, and Chuck decides to move into Olive's vacant apartment. Ned, who was perfectly happy with their home life, is deeply hurt, but tries to hide it.

Meanwhile, Emerson is hired by Dusty Fitz to find out who killed his wife, Kentucky, found stung to death by the bees she cared for. As Kentucky worked at Betty's Bees, a honey and honey-products firm, Emerson enlists bee-expert Chuck to go undercover at Betty's Bees. There she meets the eponymous Betty, who's been demoted to a figurehead after Betty's Bees was bought out, and is resentful of its new owner ''and'' new bee-girl Chuck.
