PSYCH: "A Very Juliet Episode" Review Season 4, Episode 12


This was the third consecutive episode of PSYCH that dealt with lost loves. Normally I'd be enthusiastic about any story dealing with the personal lives of this great cast of characters, but three in a row, all ending in the exact same way just felt a little repetitive. Two weeks ago, Shawn Spencer amicably split up with his girlfriend Abigail (Rachael Leigh Cook) when she went to work in Uganda. Last week, we were introduced to Gus' secret girlfriend Ruby (Sarah Shahi), only to have her leave at the end on good terms as well. This week, it was Juliet's turn to say goodbye to a former beau.


Seven years ago, Juliet left her boyfriend Scott Seaver (Josh Braaten) in California to head off to the University of Miami and then to the police academy. But the two made a pact: they would meet up in 2010 at the same train station at the same time and if they were both still single, they'd try things out again. Smash cut to seven years later: Juliet waited for her ex-boyfriend to show up at the train station, but he never appeared. Shawn and Gus did some snooping and discovered Scott was the apparent victim of a homicide.

I didn't really find this episode bad. In fact i like the fact that they are going into the storyline of the other characters but I agree that three in a row is a little overkill. I also think, though, that the writers might be coming up with something that will start the slow romance between Juliet and Shawn.

I'm just entertained by all of the throwbacks to The Mentalist and / or Simon Baker.

I agree with bobji. I think the writers are leading into something bigger romance wise. I like how the writers have avoided the typical falling in love stories that other tv shows have made. On one hand you think Juliet and Sean are falling for each other then there is a twist and the seem to be even further apart. When the two seem like they could possibly become a couple they both seem to not like the idea either at the same time they feel this or one or the other. But when ever the other seems to be in a relationship you can see a sense of jealousy rising. I am curious to see where this will go.
