Fans of Psych have reason to be, well, psyched that Psych: The Movie will revive the storylines from that cliffhanger series finale. But, since the movie doesn't pick up right after the final episode, rather three years later, it's helpful to recap what happened between Shawn and Juliet in Psych Season 8. After all, their relationship and all its moving parts will be important to keep in mind while watching the new installment. The two immediately clicked, but would go on to have a bit of an up-and-down kind of relationship over the course of the series. Juliet initially asked Shawn out in Season 3, but he picked Abby over her.
'Psych 2' Stars on Reuniting With Timothy Omundson and Gus' Big Surprise (Exclusive)
"Psych" Romeo and Juliet and Juliet (TV Episode ) - IMDb
Shawn Spencer is a fictional character and main protagonist on the American television comedy-drama Psych played by American actor James Roday Rodriguez. Taking advantage of his eidetic memory and keen observational skills, he poses as a psychic and works as a private detective who often consults with the Santa Barbara Police Department. Shawn Spencer works as a freelance consultant to the Santa Barbara Police Department, along with his business partner and lifelong best friend Burton Guster. Shawn is hyper-observant, has an eidetic memory , and always ends up being in the right place at the right time. This makes him an excellent detective; however, his impulsiveness, fear of commitment, and lack of follow-through prevented him from achieving a traditional career with the police. Therefore, he fakes having psychic powers that the police believe aid him in solving crimes; he is in fact simply using his natural detection skills.
Romeo and Juliet and Juliet
Juliet first appeared in the show's second episode, and Shawn developes a crush on her right away, which he has shown in many ways. For instance, when Shawn goes undercover as a newspaper horoscope writer, in the month that Juliet was born in, he wrote "Your one true love will be wearing sneakers and an Apple Jacks T-shirt. However, at the begginning of the show, Juliet has no romantic feelings for Shawn, and can even find him annoying at some points, but it still nice to him, unlike her partner, Carlton Lassiter. However, Juliet does admit that she finds him funny, and is very impressed by his so-called psychic abilities. However in Season 7 they broke up when Juliet found out that Shawn was really not a psychic.
This time around, they're out to help their friend Carlton Lassiter Timothy Omundson as he recovers from both a shooting and a stroke at the Herschel House Hospital. It's worth noting that the storyline involving Lassiter's recovery mirrors Omundson's own recovery from the stroke he had in April , which led to his reduced role in Psych: The Movie. While Shawn and Gus sneak around Santa Barbara trying to solve Lassiter's case, their significant others, Juliet O'Hara Maggie Lawson and Selene played by Hill's real-life wife Jazmyn Simon , do some sneaking around of their own; Juliet tries to find the missing bullet from Lassiter's case and Selene tries to find out if Gus is cheating on her with Lassiter's nurse, Dolores Sarah Chalke. The movie is filled with all the references, nicknames, and ridiculous antics you'd expect in a follow-up Psych movie.
