I’m going to have to skip The Americans this week. I watched it all the way through, but I honestly have no idea what happened other than Elizabeth paid a visit to Philip’s other “wife” and Elizabeth broke up with the sailor. Beyond that, I’m out. TBT, I was a little drunk after a rough day and celebrating/being sad over the Psych finale, so that could have had something to do with it. In any case, here’s the take on the finale and this week’s episode of Nashville!
I held it together so well all the way up until about forty minutes in when they did a promo for the Psych All Night “after pshow” wrap-up, and then it hit me, or sunk in, or whatever – this was the last new episode of Psych I would ever see. Then I sobbed and cried like a little girl. For the longest time, it was Psych, Burn Notice and Leverage – a trifecta of my favorite shows that I had to watch – and I did, religiously. Now, they’re all off the air–though I think I heard tell that Psych is getting syndicated for reruns, which is cool–and I miss them all like crazy.
With guest appearances by Billy Zane and Val Kilmer, among others, it was a totally fun and fitting finale to show that has been chock-full of great plots and great guest stars. And the “after pshow” had clips of former guest starts like Barry Bostwick, Ali Sheedy, Judd Nelson and Cary Elwes congratulating the cast on a great run and thanking them for the opportunity to participate, etc. It was a blast.
While Shawn and Gus are trying to help with a new case, they realize that Betsy, Lassie’s new lead detective, is just as good as they are and is stepping on their toes at every turn. But the bigger thing is that Shawn has decided to move to San Francisco to be with Jules, and he spends the entire episode trying to figure out how to tell Gus about it.
There is a video Shawn makes of himself that pops up, narrating certain scenes, and later on, we realize that he taped his goodbyes to everyone at SBPD, his dad, and Gus, because he isn’t good with the “real” stuff.
When Shawn goes to SanFran, it doesn’t take long for Gus to track him down at a crime scene with the chief and Jules and admonish him for taking the easy way out with a goodbye video. While Gus thought he had the perfect new job, he realized it was the same as the old one just with better perks, and he has decided that they can reopen Psych offices in San Francisco and keep working with Shawn because solving crimes with his best friend is the only job he ever wants to have.
Then in the final few minutes, we get the real thing: Shawn proposes to Juliet, and it’s lovely. It’s sweet, and it’s the proposal we’ve all been waiting for since the two of them had their first look, first flirtation, first kiss. Oh, I will miss those two, but, fortunately, it looks like James Roday, Maggie Lawson and Timothy Omundson all have new deals for new series/projects, so that’s all right! (Somebody grab Dule Hill quick!)
The series ended on a high, hopeful note, and watching the post-show wrap up was a wonderful way to say goodbye. I’d like to say that’s included in the Psych season 8 DVD set, to release on Tuesday, April 1, but I have no clue. It would be cool if it was, though. I really enjoyed it, even if the host was a little lame at times. Also, how good does Tim Omundson (below, second from the right) look with a BEARD?!?! LOVE IT!

This week was a particularly soapy one, as Maddy continues to find new ways to defy her parents, her parentage comes out, rocking Rayna and Luke’s relationship, Deacon’s girl admits to sleeping with Teddy, Will’s sexuality is starting to rock the boat with Jeff Fordham, and more Scarlett–Juliette–Avery drama ensues as they go on tour together and Scarlett and Avery continue recording her album.
I think I’ll leave the recap at that and just continue with the commentary: For one, I am really getting tired of Maddy acting out. I know she’s a teenager, but she was such a good kid before, and now she’s a little terror. She clearly hasn’t worked out the tit-for-tat rule of the way the world works, otherwise she’d realize that if she played along with her parents’ wishes and continued doing well in school, she could probably spend as much time working on her music and spending time with her bio dad Deacon as she wanted.
I’m not sure how much mileage is left in the Scarlett, Avery, and Juliette triangle. It’s getting old, and seeing as Scarlett and Avery are acting so platonic and professional toward each other, it’s really not that interesting a triangle.
I mentioned egos in the title because Teddy (competing with Deacon), Juliette (with Scarlett), Will (with Gunnar) and Luke (with Rayna) have all gone off the reservation. They’re allowing their egos to take precedence over common sense. It’s a little nuts, and a little sad. Acting like a bunch of petulant children does not a good drama make, writers.
Rayna is starting to lose her sparkle too, which really bugs me. She was so weepy, wide-eyed and naive in this episode, with Luke, with Teddy, with Deacon, and even with her daughter, that I hardly recognized her. She’s been so cool, strong and savvy, while still sensitive and emoting, for the majority of her tenure on the series that she was a great, lovable character, but now, it’s like she’s lost herself trying to be Luke Wheeler’s girlfriend and Teddy’s ex-wife. I hope the real Rayna James comes back soon.
Thursday and Friday recaps are coming up next. I haven’t watched any of the Thursday eps except Suits, so it may be a while :/
