So I was re-watching the Pushing Daisies Comic-Con panel from 2008, and Bryan Fuller refers to Randy Mann as how Ned would be of he never had his gift. Oh my god. The world makes sense now.
They both hold onto loved ones who’ve died.
They both are socially awkward and easily confused but still romantic.
They both are embarrassed and try to hide who they are.
They both have abandonment issues and hate being alone.
OH MY GOD!
