DESCRIPTION:
(from ABC's press release, September 2008) Chuck goes undercover as a "Bee Girl" at a honey-based cosmetics company after their new spokesmodel (guest star Autumn Reeser) is stung to death.

Meanwhile, Ned can't stand her growing independence or the fact that she wants to move out of his apartment. In other developments, Lily spirits Olive off to a nunnery so she won't spill Lily's deep, dark secret, on the Second-Season premiere of ABC's critically-acclaimed "Pushing Daisies" nominated for 12 Emmy Awards -- WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
