  • Granted, I don’t think it was confirmed Gus’ gf (what’s her face from ER) was breaking up with him. But I hope so. I could not stand them together. She was annoying..
    Gus needs to find a girl like Juliet. Someone who understands him and Shawn, yet doesn’t try to get in the middle of their jokes like what’s her face did.

    • Agreed, I don’t think Gus and Rachael had any chemistry whatsoever.

    • AGREED. Shawn & Juliet are perfect and really understanding with each other. Gus needs that, too.

  • Olivia D’Abo is better known to many as Bobby Goren’s biggest nemesis on Law and Order CI who appears to have been killed but maybe not??? Maybe she’ll try to manipulate Shawn????

    • Nicole Wallace! That would be awesome. Best recurring villain in the L&O Universe, IMHO.

    • SO glad I’m not the only one thinking this! oh man I could definitely stand to see more of that storyline. My fave episode was a Wallace ep, too.

  • How about word on USA upping the episode order? Or whether or not Maggie Lawson can appear, based on ber new show? Or if this is the, gasp, FINAL season?!?!

    I needs to know!!!

    • I doubt Maggie’s show will get past the pilot, and if it does, I doubt it will have more than a few episodes. I think we have to be prepared for this to be the final season. And I think five additional scripts were ordered after the original 8 for next season.

      • i am already preparing my self for next spring. First Burn Notice and now Psych. top 2 shows usa has and i rather have it be planned final instead of a forever lasting cliffhanger

      • Her show is on the fall schedule.

      • I think Back in the Game looks awful. I want Maggie to see success, but I don’t think the show is all that compelling. I heard that ABC was really really excited by the pilot but that doesn’t mean much for the quality of later episodes.

    • Maggie Lawson is still doing Psych, she is currently filming as we speak. She was asked recently at the USA Upfronts whether she was leaving Psych and she replied “no i a still doing Psych, i’m going to be really busy” she is doing both shows. The Network has yet to announce whether the extra five scripts they ordered will be added to the season, so at the moment the season will still only have 8 episodes. James Roday has already said outright that season 8 will be the last (it’s not an official announcement but it’s as good as). If the extra five scripts do get added Maggie should be able to appear in at least some of them.

    • I think we ALL need to know. The show is pretty much nothing without her & not trying to be very mean, but I hope Maggie’s other show doesn’t go well.

  • Why would USA interfere with an apparent winning combination as in Psych and Burn Notice?

    • The main reason networks do everything: Money! USA/Comcast NBC Universal execs think they can make more money something else. They are probably wrong.

  • How about psych gives gus a love interest that last more than half a season!

    Comment by dean – June 5, 2013 10:08 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • what i dont get is why they never paired them. both are my all time fav shows and gus not scoring in love is a tired joke

  • Don’t get me wrong, I love that we’re finally getting something on here- but why did tvline wait so long to start writing Psych posts and dedicating more article space to Psych scoop‽

    Comment by Kayla – June 5, 2013 08:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Good point, but I sincerely hope the powers that be would work it out and revive Psych and we do hope Maggie’s show is indeed a hit!
