She meets a gorgeous guy and sparks fly, except she tells him her profession and he seems edgy. She later finds out Dutch is a cop when he shows up at her door for questioning in a murder.

When she "reads" Allison and then finds out later that she was murdered afew weeks after, the police at first seem to think she's a suspect because they found a cassette tape of the reading with Abby's contact information on it. They don't believe her "special powers" can help them solve the murder.
