Inspector Lassiter is depressed enough to seriously consider resigning on account of an old case he feels unable to crack as isn't even officially ruled a murder. Shawn decides to save his nemesis by solving it and cuing Lassiter enough to believe he can claim credit. The victim is an astronomer, the observatory project partner of Hugo. Shawn uses pa's gardener plant expertise to find foul, then infiltrates as (utterly inept) planetarium guide, teasing Gus whose secretly admired girl actually works there. Suspects include a stealing janitor and anyone who could know about Hugo's great ambition. Written by
