NANCY DREW IS BACK!!!
It has been about 5 weeks since the end of the last season, and everyone is off doing their own things. Nancy has her detective agency, Bess is head of the historical society, George is studying to be a lawyer, Ace is working at the morgue, Nick is running the center. And they’re all planning for the Lovers’ Vigil.
Nancy’s dads show up with breakfast for her, and she tells them she’s been trying to solve missing pet cases to pay the bills, all while avoiding Ace, but she’s annoyed she hasn’t solved the case of the missing bodies yet. She realizes she’s late to meet Bess, and runs off, but Bess also tells her to just talk to Ace.
Just then, Bess makes herself scarce and Ace shows up, and they realize they’ve been Parent Trapped. They agree to try to be friends, but then Ace gets arrested as a suspect in aforementioned case of the missing bodies.
Nancy storms to the police station but she’s not allowed run of the place anymore now that there’s a new chief of police. A chief who is…very chipper. She’s happy to meet Nancy but tells her that she doesn’t believe in ghost stories, but she does believe in evidence, like the arm she found in Ace’s backyard. The chief is a little too chipper and frankly I don’t trust her but for now she’s being nice to Nancy so I’ll allow it.
As the Drew Crew investigates, they find a body…when it crawls out of the ground and starts stumbling around.
While Bess is getting ready for the Lovers’ Vigil, Ryan introduces her to a couple who wants to sell things from the historical society on the black market. When Bess politely declines and goes with Ryan to pick up a new artifact, they are driven off the road by a talisman in the engine and the artifact is picked up by the Glasses. (A confusing family name to be said out loud!) Bess is furious but Ryan promises he’ll handle it.
At the Lovers’ Vigil, Bess is reunited with Addy, who had been out of town, and they’re cute and happy and kissy. (And they’re not the only f/f pairing at the party!) It’s pretty cute, and they miss most of what else happens at the Vigil because of it. Including but not limited to Nancy and Ace almost kissing again, causing more glass to break and Nancy to run away.
That night, the Drew Crew meets up and invites Chief Lovett (maybe THAT’S why I don’t trust her…) to witness the zombies rising from their makeshift graves, spitting up some ooze, then collapsing again. What they don’t see, however, is that the zombie ooze seems to be making its way into the town’s water supply. Nancy hasn’t paid though, er water bill, so maybe she’ll be spared whatever will befall Horseshoe Bay. (Side note: at this point the song No Moon by lyrix plays, and the lyrics that stood out to me were, “Don’t go on a witch hunt if you don’t want to find one.”)
Ace confronts Nancy at her office, sensing the pattern, and tries to kiss her, only for more glass to break. She finally confesses that they’re cursed and frankly I love this for them; the way they get so close to each other’s faces but can’t kiss reminds me of the delicious angst of Pushing Daisies and I’m here for it.
