Storyline

While detective Carlton Lassiter must drive the pregnant captain to hospital, Juliet O'Hara enlists Psych unofficially to start looking before the legal 48 hours pass into the disappearance of well-behaved nerd-knave Breyfogle. Examining his room suffices to realize the teen came into spending money and took two mates, fellow teenage comics-fans Don and Rob, to the nearby triennial convention TriCon. There Shawn performs as psychic and poses of Star Trek star Takei's assistant to snoop with true fan Gus into what turns out to be a planned series of crimes inspired by a comic. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

When Shawn visits Chief Vick in the maternity ward, he tells her that she needs to take some time off from work and says, "Come back in January." This episode of "Psych" was the last episode to air during the summer of the first season; the next new episode was aired, in fact, the next January. See more »

Goofs

When Shawn first surveys Malone's bedroom (at around 49 mins), the chessboard has a single soda can in the middle, the board is correctly oriented, and the chess pieces are in a (more or less) standard position. The next quick shot of the white pieces is the same. In the third shot of the board (at around 2 mins), a model of a dragon skeleton has been added to the center of the board, the pieces are randomly placed, the board is oriented incorrectly, and a different board is used (the brass plate on the front.)
