This episode was another good one; Molly Shannon did a great job as Dilly Balsam; the rival and potential murder suspect. Raúl Esparza was also good as Alfredo Aldarisio, the travelling homoeopathic remedy salesman, the scene between him and Olive was incredibly romantic without being twee. The case was as wacky as ever; in fact there were two wacky cases; the taffy vat killing and one involving a man 'murdered' my a doll! The doll-killing was wrapped up fairly quickly though. Once the mystery is over Ned tells Chuck something that should make the next episode rather interesting... I won't spoil that here though!
I liked this episode, though at first I was undecided about Shannon's character--she was so awful that I perhaps hated her too much. But, as the episode continued I found the whole thing kooky and enjoyable. But will we ever see this candy store again on the series?
