For four seasons now, we've seen Shawn Spencer turn the Santa Barbara Police Department upside-down and solve the most difficult cases using "psychic" powers. And with so many closed cases under his belt, it was about time he got noticed. After yet another successful solved case, Shawn and Gus were approached by Mr. Snowden, chief of security for Ashton Bonaventure, a billionaire tycoon and assassination target. Mr. Snowden hired the detectives to join a think tank in which they'd figure out ways to stay one step ahead of a potential threat. Of course, it was only a matter of time before Shawn realized Mr. Snowden wasn't who he claimed to be and had to stop an assassination attempt by the very same man who hired him.
On paper, this should have been a great episode. Whenever Shawn is faced with an authority figure or anyone claiming to be smarter than him, he runs circles around them and makes them look foolish. So putting Shawn in the middle of a think tank should've been the perfect scenario for him to create chaos. In addition, he was playing with a trio of great guest stars, Bruce Davison (X-Men), Chris Sarandon (The Princess Bride) and Miguel Ferrer (from a million things, but he'll always have a special place in my heart as Agent Rosenfeld on Twin Peaks). Unfortunately, this episode never quite took advantage of all the opportunities that were presented.
