Psych's Juliet Tries to Topple Castle's Kate in 'Law-Enforcement Crushes' Tourney

Psych‘s Juliet O’Hara and Castle‘s Kate Beckett have barely broken a sweat advancing to Round 3, Day 3 of our Ultimate Female Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament, but only one will advance to the Quarterfinals.

The X-Files’ Scully Vs. Fringe’s Olivia as ‘Law-Enforcement Crushes’ Round 3 Begins!

That’s exactly the kind of difficult pickle you’ll find in the single-elimination world of the TVLine Thunderdome, where two crime-fighters enter, but only one will leave!

Every afternoon over the next few weeks, in fact, we’ll launch another set of bouts that will test the strength of your character allegiances. So make sure the right choice is made by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 3 voting will be open for 72 hours), and hit the comments to justify your picks.

NCIS: LA’s Kensi Vs. NCIS’ Ziva as ‘Law-Enforcement Crushes’ Rages On!

(Oh, and in case you’re wondering/fretting, we put a cap of two cast members per show, which meant some fan favorites had to warm the bench this time around.)

    Kate Beckett rocks! Your argument is invalid.

  2. Sami says:

    Wow…all I’ve learned from this poll is that Stana Katic has some truly horrible fans.

  3. Lovenothateplease says:

    @Sami – WOW really??? What I see is that Stana Katic has fantastic – supportive fans, and fully deserves the support! But you are entitled to your own opinion, so each to his/her own eh?

  4. Stanacat says:

    Kate Beckett, I love you.

  5. Emma says:

    I truly, now more than ever, can’t wait for the truth about Katic to come out.

    • Oo says:

      Troll alert!

    • Kate says:

      and what is the ‘truth’ exactly?

    • Jolie says:

      Which one? There’s lots of rumors from bitch, diva to lesbo. Even if they’re true I and the majority of the fandom don’t care. From what I have seen she’s nice with the fans, is really commited to the job and tries to make the world a better place. Every woman deserves to play the bitch sometimes. And I’ll respect her even more for that. Strong women rule.

  6. Sara says:

    I like them both, but I gotta vote for Maggie Lawson just because I know she isn’t gonna get enough votes.

  7. Kaeri says:

    Coffee and cherries.
    Always ;)

  8. B-Dawg says:

    I have watched both shows ( I am a little to much Castle-crazed but anyway) and I don’t think theres nothing wrong whit either characters nor actresses, but I think Beckett has a stronger character and Stanas the most non bitchy actress I know of. But arguments like this can last forever and leave both sides angry and feeling like s*it, so why bother making one?
    And fellow Castle fans *puffes out a breath of realif* I can see I’m not the only one who’s cranky about the delay of episodes.

  9. Amber says:

    Don’t even need to think,,,STANA KATIC for sure!!
    I don’t think there’s any reasons against voting for Beckett/Stana.

  10. aris ochoa says:

    Stsna Katic- Kate Becketttttttttttt la mejor exelente………

  11. Faith says:

    Juliet all the way !! Not only is Maggie Lawson my all-time favorite actress, but she’s so cute! :) I do wish they would have used a more recent picture, as she’s definitely grown up since that picture was taken.

  12. Stephanie says:


  13. Meredith says:

    How do you vote. Im for O’ Hara!

  14. BecauseOfYou says:

    1. Badass
    2. Hairporn
    3. Bedroom voice
    5. Sense of humor

  15. Serina says:

    I guess we vote here. Maggie by a mile.

  16. RheDesign says:

    I have tried watching Psych and found it dull with uncharasmatic actors with the exception of Hill. Beckett is awesome, Juliet is boring.

  17. Kasie says:

    i love how the title is “tries” to topple.. hhaha even they know its not gonna happen ;)

  18. Doc Snooze says:

    Beckett hands down. And, for the record, wish they were my hands.

  19. Katie says:

    this fandom rules. We have had Lanie, Castle, Espo, Gates, Montgomery. (from the grave), and Beckett’s Psych. Am I missing anyone??
    What other fandom does that!! Love you guys all so much!!

  20. Hal Lockwood (from the grave) says:

    Beckett. She’s the BAMF version of my favorite school teacher. And she’s really important to my employer.

  21. Relyks says:

  23. JM says:

    I’m a big fan of Psych and never really watched Castle, so to be slightly more fair, I googled a few videos/photos, and Juliet O’Hara wins hands down, IMO. She’s basically my favorite female character out of every show I’ve seen in recent times, and is absolutely gorgeous. I honestly don’t find Katic attractive, and the clips I’ve seen of Beckett don’t do much for me personality-wise, so Juliet definitely gets the win here as far as my opinion goes!

  24. Peacenotwarplease says:

    Go Stana – you are extraordinary and well worth every vote you have gotten so far in this ‘crush’ tournament!

  25. Amanda says:

    It’s things like this that make me wonder why tvline hasn’t disabled comments for polls.

    The immaturity level on here is absolutely despicable.

    • o says:

      I have to agree.

    • OurMrsParker says:

      I have to agree. I find that polls like these only serve to start arguments and “wars” between fandoms, not bring anyone together. And the comments all head off topic, and people start insulting the actors/actresses, and then each other, and the whole thing seems rather pointless in my opinion. Make your vote and go. Or, if comments are enabled, just say ‘I voted for “so-and-so” and be done with it. I made my vote. That’s all that matters.

      • Amanda says:

        It’s not even the polls that bother me, I think it’s pretty fun. But the comments just go from the sublime to the ridiculous, and are downright insulting, especially to those of us in any fandom that don’t resort to mudslinging and name calling.

  26. Castle Crazy says:

    Stana Katic (Kate Beckett) in a heart beat.

    Always Stana Katic FTW ♥

  27. Kathleen b says:

    Beckett! She has done more butt-kicking then Juliet!

  28. Kat says:

    Wow… for once I can’t choose. I love Psych and Castle so much! Maggie Lawson and Stana Katic are equally talented in my eyes, for each are so strong, and passionate about what they’re doing, yet know how to goof off and have fun as well. There’s no way I’d be able to ever choose one over the other. Both characters have been so well thought through, and are so complex, that it’s awe-striking. Also, it’s hard for me to compare, because while they are very similar, they are also VERY different. It just isn’t possible for me to choose between them. I would feel like a traitor to myself to even think about putting one before the other… they both are so talented, and beautiful, and inspiring. Thus the reason why Castle and Psych (alphabetical order) are my two favorite shows. Their casts and directors, and writers are so perfect for the show they do. They aren’t comparable in my eyes, and so I shall not vote.

    Oh, and seriously people, even if you like one more than another, DON’T bash the one you aren’t voting for, it’s just wrong. ESPECIALLY if you haven’t even WATCHED the show the other is from.

  29. PleaseStop says:

    I really think that people need to stop attacking the actresses. Seriously, it’s the character that’s being deemed crush-worthy NOT the actresses. Who you want to vote for is your own thing and both are beautiful women and good characters but leave to actresses out of it because really, they are not the same people.

    P.S. MS – it’s spelled psych and we’re called psycho-s!!!

  30. Marc says:

    YES! Thanks! Finally a logic person!

  31. Marc says:

    JULIET FOR EVER! The other woman looks terrible.. IDK what’s wrong with people!

  32. bro says:

    It doesn’t get better than Beckett. She’s perfect.

  33. MrMomadurne says:

    Wow. I love both shows. Idk who to vote 4.

  34. MS says:

    @Pleasestop – I’m really not sure what you are referring too – I purposely have avoided saying anything wrongly about either of the actresses??? With regard to the typo on psych I apologise if you were offended it wasn’t intentional, but at least that should prove my statement that I don’t know of the show or the show’s actress mentioned in this poll, I don’t think psych is screened in UK – at least I haven’t seen it. Is psycho’s the name for all the psych fans, if so it’s a great name.

  35. Sherri says:

    I enjoy watching Kate and how she is going back and forth with her feelings for Castle. She is strong, smart and keeps things going as a lead detective.

  37. tefla says:

    Definitely Beckett. I’m a hardcore Castle watcher.
