Somebody else is trying to kill our bachelors. Later, Shawn sees Jay making a pass at Melinda and finds it very suspicious. That, added with Jay kicking Juliet and Lassiter off set makes Shawn believe that Jay is the culprit.
Melinda chooses Shawn and Gus to go on a "group date". Throughout the date, Shawn tries to get Melinda to admit to having an affair with Jay. She denies it, but Shawn has Lassiter and Juliet interrogate Jay after it is made known that Jay has the show "insured through the roof," giving him possible motive to sabotage and collect. Juliet and Lassiter ask to see the insurance policy, but Jay tells them he already sold the show to NBC. Lassiter asks to see proof of this. It turns out that Jay was lying about selling the show to NBC, so Juliet and Lassiter have cause to arrest him.
Meanwhile, Melinda has to choose between Gus and Shawn on the group date. She decides to choose Shawn over Gus. We then cut to a devastated Gus sitting in the limo, taking the ride of shame home, fighting back tears for getting booted off the show.
Later, Shawn is still on the date with Melinda, and the subject of her unrealistic expectations for love comes up. She says this attitude stems from her college years and refers to a handful of letters she used to receive from a secret admirer. She reads a direct quote from one the letters to Shawn and Shawn immediately flashbacks to Danny saying that exact same quote. From there, Shawn knows that Melinda and Danny truly belong together, and that their missed connection could be missed forever if Melinda never finds out that it was Danny all along who she should be with.
We come up on Steve's editing bay the morning after the date. Shawn has gathered Gus, Lassiter and Juliet to show them how the rest of the date with Melinda played out the night before. On the monitor we see Shawn telling Melinda he has a girlfriend. He then reveals to her that it was Danny that wrote her the letters, and from there, Danny and Melinda are united at last.
Just as we are seeing this play out on screen, we notice a jumpcut in the edit, meaning that someone had gone through the raw footage and suspiciously taken pieces out.
Shawn gets Steve to show them the raw footage that had been edited out, and sure enough, the cameraman Hank is seen tampering with the grill right before Danny started to use it. It was Hank all along who was trying to sabotage the show by killing off its contestants. Shawn then realizes that Hank is currently shooting the proposal scene with Danny and Melinda on a plane taking them to skydive, and that they are in serious danger.
They arrive while the plane is about to take off. Once they get the plane to stop, Shawn tells everyone what really happened, saying that Hank was the one who had come up with the idea for the show first. And when he handed it over to Jay, Jay cut Hank out of the profits, thus creating a reason for Hank to sabotage the show. Hank is then arrested and Melinda and Danny are saved.
We end on The Paths of Love Reunion show with Hilton Fox showing clips of Shawn's best moments from the show. At the very end of the reunion special, Hilton announces that Todd is out of the coma and is alive and well. When Melinda sees Todd, she gets a sudden rush of regret... she thinks to herself that maybe she should have picked Todd... afterall, he is hotter than Danny...
