What I'm Watching: Psych (Season Finale)

Psych: Season 2, Episode 16 “Shawn (and Gus) of the Dead” (B+)

This is somewhat of a disappointment as a season ender, though it is still a fine episode. This one focuses more on getting into the creepy mythology which seems to be at work behind the scenes rather than the utterly hilarious situations Shawn and Gus have gotten themselves into recently. This is actually in a lot of ways similar to last year’s finale, “Scary Sherry”, which found Juliet going undercover in a sorority to expose a supernatural-seeming murder spree. This episode is a good deal more on track, and I am thrilled for the return of our wacky detectives next season, or this July, when the show should begin the first half of its third season. I do wish that a new chief had been appointed since the current one does little for me. The appearance of Shawn’s mom was expected based on Shawn’s dad’s anxiety, but what does that mean for next season? And who will play her? I guess we will have to see come July.
