Shawn gets a middle-of-the-night visit from a frantic Gus telling him that he "screwed up bad." Gus tells Shawn that he finally stood up to his horrible boss Dorian Creech and gave him his letter of resignation with the some threatening words written at the bottom. Before Shawn can congratulate Gus on his uncharacteristic assertiveness, Gus drops a bomb. Gus explains that he later returned to the office to rescind his resignation and found Creech stabbed to death in his office, clutching the note Gus had written to him earlier. Gus explains that he panicked, grabbed the note from Creech's dead hands and ate it. But then he started to choke on it, and things got out of control. Gus explains that he accidentally ruined the crime scene and made it look like he was the one who killed Creech. Shawn tells Gus to calm down and that they will head to the office and have a look.
