Shawn senses at once a dubious suicide may be covering up a serial killer, even before Gus is convinced by a series of parallel cases, albeit all with different MO and no common victims profile. Shawn pretends to be a medium inspired by the first victim's cat. He suspects the link is a suicide phone charity, but works out the truth just in time to prevent naive ever-helpful rookie Buzz McNab's wedding preparations turning into tragedy.
