Psych: Season 6: Episode 1 -- While on a mission to retrieve a stolen Darth Vader collector's item from the British Ambassador's son at the British Consulate Residence in Santa Barbara, Shawn finds a dead body left in one of the rooms. In order to get the SBPD on the case to find her killer, Shawn tells Lassiter and Juliet that the image of a dead body came to him in a psychic vision. However, Shawn's credibility as a "psychic" could be placed in jeopardy if the SBPD finds out he actually witnessed the dead body in person and didn't "divine" the image of her murder. Guest Stars: Malcolm McDowell, Polly Walker.
