Question: I'm in love with Pushing Daisies. So, what's the poop, scoop, skinny, the haps, the dealio, the 411 on this amazing show?

Answer: As I reported on Friday, Daisies' ninth episode slated to air next month will in many ways feel like a season finale. "Realizing that our ninth episode may be our last for a while if the strike goes on, we amped up the story to have as many balls in the air as possible," Daisies' creator Bryan Fuller tells me. One of those balls will involve that wee little secret Ned's been keeping from Chuck, which comes out later this month and causes "things to go haywire" in the finale. In that same episode, a surprising link between Chuck and another character will be revealed. And how it's revealed is as much of a jaw-dropper as the secret itself. (Hint: Think *a**l *a*n** circa 19*4.)
