Lonely and unsure about his future, Shawn gets brainwashed by a group full of lost souls called The Centre (slogan: "Are you centered?"), headed by the enigmatic Mr. Mack (Jerry Levine), who believes that a "hug is a burst of pure love." (Not a euphemism.) Cory, the Matthews, Mr. Feeny and Mr. Turner try to get Shawn to leave to no avail, but when Turner, his teacher/former guardian/mentor, is seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, Shawn finds God and finally rejects The Centre. Lesson learned: Don't join a cult. Not even for the hugs.
