Characters drive viewers to Psych's fifth season

By Jennifer Hillman, Staff Writer

The cast and the writers of "Psych" prove what they do best after coming back from hiatus: they make you laugh and feel at the same time.

The case was easy to solve, but as its the fifth season, it's probably not the main reason why fans stick around. Fans stick around for the relationships, whether it be Shawn's infatuation with past art thief Despereaux or Shawn's relationship with Juliet moving from friends to something more.

In "Extradition II: The Actual Extradition Part", Shawn and Gus return to Canada to meet up with a criminal they put in jail, Despereaux. He wants to show them he is still the best at what he does. Shawn is excited and Gus is annoyed. So it's usual business for them.  The case gets a little messy when two people are killed. Shawn knows Despereaux doesn't kill, he just goes for the expensive art.

The case wasn't too hard to solve, especially after a new character was introduced halfway through the episode, but once again the fans maybe aren't too concerned about that.  The Shawn and Gus classic jokes and bickering made up for that.  So did the "Shules" romance.  In case you were wondering, "Shules" is like the "Brangelina" of "Psych."

The last episode before the hiatus ended with the kiss between Juliet and Shawn that the fans had all waited for.  When the show returned, Shawn wanted to talk to A lot of back and forth occurred until Juliet told him that maybe their moment hadpassed. "Shules" fans winced from that hurt. Could it really be over for this couple before it even started?

The "Shules" fans were saved the agony because Shawn didn't let the moment pass.  Thank goodness for Shawn taking control of his heart for once!

Shawn, as always, makes a gushy moment somewhat witty. He wants give up his motorcycle, a.k.a. his freedom, and really wants to buy a car because of Juliet. James Roday, Shawn, always knows how to do the lines justice when Shawn's love for Juliet is on the line.  

Roday and Maggie Lawson, Juliet, are probably happy with this result. Both of them are dating off-air.

"Psych" airs Wednesday 10 P.M. on USA.
