Daisies, Daisies, give me your answer do...

Do we find out the secret of Ned's dead-raising power? Does Emerson meet his long-lost daughter, who turns out to be a Veronica Mars-like teen sleuth? Will Lily and Vivian ever go on that comeback tour!?

No, "Pushing Daisies," I haven't forgotten about you. Even though your unceremonious drop-kick off ABC's schedule was more than three months ago now, your loyal fans are still desperately waiting for some closure, in the form of those final three unaired — and hopefully answer-filled — episodes. After ABC cancelled "Daisies" in November (I believe the actual term was "declined to pick up a full season"), I had hoped they would at least do the show's fervent fan base the courtesy of airing the rest of the 13 episodes. But that would have required, you know, a soul or something — and besides, there was a new season of "Dancing With the Stars" to get out! So they quit at episode 10, leaving so many questions unanswered. (And a rather unpleasant taste in my mouth, following that lackluster episode with the Norweigans...)

Luckily, our wait is almost over. Sort of. Warner Home Video announced yesterday that they'll be releasing the second season DVD set of the lamentably short-lived comedy-fantasy on July 21, final three episodes included. Does that mean we'll get all the answers we're looking for? Well, no, not really. Series creator Bryan Fuller has openly admitted that he wrapped what he thought was going to be the first half of the season on a pretty huge cliffhanger — something to do with Chuck. (Does she run away to join her dad? Turn herself in for Dwight's death? Accidentally touch Ned!?! Sorry ... I'm getting carried away with questions here.)

For fans in Great Britain, on the other hand, the wait for answers is even shorter. According to British site BroadcastNow, the UK network ITV, which has been airing "Daising" overseas, will actually air the final three sometime this spring. (Lucky limey bastards.)

At any rate, this comes as a huge relief. Anybody else looking forward to this? Have any burning, unanswered questions of your own? Let's hear 'em.
