Paroled ex-con Cyrus Polk takes coroner Woody Strode hostage, claiming he's being set up for the murder in his home on a criminal he threatened in jail despite DNA evidence. Trout sidetracks Lassiter and any attempt to curb his cocky intent to end the case by needlessly bloody SWAT intervention. Psych sets out to save Woody and find out the truth about the murder. Checking up on the halfway house where Rocoo rules the roost and parole officer Edward Tripp above him, they discover a probably related second killing, while O'Hara joins Polk pretending to be his daughter.
