HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME NOT, HE LOVES ME, OOPS, HE'S DEAD (#1_1014)
EPISODE PREMIERE: February 2, 2007
They go and talk to Turk, who confirms he participated at the speed-dating event. He also tells them strange things have been happening to him ever since. He was the perfect candidate for a job he applied for but was rejected at the last minute. The company told him they received a call about him but said it was confidential. Shawn is even more convinced the key lies in the speed dating and talks Vick into ponying up the entrance fee after he tells her he's looking for a short woman with a particular tire on her car, and draws them the pattern he saw in the field. Lassiter tells them that the dead victim had the same non-lethal dose of drugs in his system of Turk and Keiser, but he had a pre-existing heart condition that made the dose fatal and the murder accidental. He thinks they should just haul the women into the station and question them all there but Vick says that would tip their hand. They all must go undercover at the speed-dating event.
Back at Shenanigans, Lassiter tells Shawn he ran the tire pattern and they are looking for a woman with a late model American sports car. Just then Lorraine, the woman who runs the event, tells them the rules and gives them personality questionnaires to help match people up. During the speed-dating, Shawn talks to a woman named Glenda, who asks him about his mother's maiden name, his pet's name and his favorite color, but later on meets a girl named Darcy, who not only fits all their suspect requirements, but also works in pharmaceutical sales, giving her access to drugs. Her questionnaire also matched perfectly with Gus', so they set up a date to get more information. On the date, Gus tells her he lives at the beach, so when she says she wants to go back to his place, they are forced to go to Henry's, who tells them that she's not the one they are looking for. She's too sincere.
Lassiter calls Shawn to the police station where they are holding Marvin. They found him outside one of the speed-daters apartments and they discovered a stack of stolen questionnaires at his house. Shawn notices a green smudge on them similar to the one he saw on the post in the field. He knows Marvin had something to do with it and suggests they follow him to work and he'll lead them to his female partner.
At Shenanigans, the speed dating is already in progress and Shawn overhears Glenda asking another guy the same questions she asked him. She's also exchanging glances with Marvin and has a similar tan line on her ring finger as him. With that, he's figured out that they are not only partners, but also married. And they used the speed dating as a cover to get credit card and personal information to steal people's identities and then drugged and dumped them into the field to cover their tracks.
