Shawn is as delighted to get the case of a theft from a bizarre museum as Gus is terrified because the loot is his childhood nightmare: an Egyptian mummy. Meanwhile the precinct is self-absorbed, due the expiration the commissioner's ultimatum to resign unless nominated permanently, yet can't ignore the high-profile murder of tycoon, a major sponsor of the museum, whose board includes his heir William Wyles IV. Shawn claims the mummy walked out, links and solves both cases. Written by
