Sam leaps into the body of a television news reporter, Dylan Powell, who has been receiving tips from a serial killer. The series of murders has been labeled the Chinatown Strangler case by the media and a psychic,Tamlyn Matsuda, has been helping the police with their investigation. The 6 victims to date were all hookers or strippers but Al tells him that Tamlyn will be the seventh victim. Al ranks her right down there with Ouija boards, but Sam isn't so quick to dismiss her as a quack. Sam is quite attracted to her and when she sees Sam as he really is, he tells her about the Quantum Leap project and - despite Al's warnings that he may not leap again - that she is going to be the next victim.

Admiral Al Calavicci: Well, if she's psychic, how come she doesn't know that she's gonna die?
