We know Psych can make us laugh, there’s no question about that. It’s rarer though when it can make me tear up, which is probably why I feel like I look forward to those moments more than the giggles. The end of this episode was one of those moments – Shawn coming back after making sure his dad got his job back and covering him up with a blanket. Those were two simple little things – one of which Henry will probably never know about – but both showing how much Shawn really does care about his dad, despite their problems. Just like Henry working for the SBPD is his way of showing how much he cares about Shawn, without saying the words.
It’s funny to me that two of my favorite characters were battling their inner children and learning how to become more mature this week. First it was Tony in last night’s episode of NCIS and tonight it was Shawn’s turn. Shawn’s trip into his own head was funny and wacky but underneath all that was his journey towards realizing what it means to grow up and take more responsibility not only for his life, but for what he means to the people he cares about. Just like with Tony, I do not want the kid in Shawn to go away, but a balance between the boy inside and man outside is a very good thing.
