Shawn: “I think this is a case of your imagination getting the best of you. Happens to Gus and I once every seven days.”
“Heeeeere’s Lassie” is the newest episode of Psych, and it happened to be directed by James Roday. If you don’t want this episode spoiled, then come back to this article later. To remind yourself on what happened last time, click here. Psych airs Wednesday nights at 9 on USA (owned by NBC).
Lassie gets himself a new place. It’s too bad it’s out to kill him. Let this be a lesson for anyone who considers purchasing a condo that is also the current crime scene that you are working on. It’s always great to get a Lassie episode because he is absolutely hilarious. Seeing Lassie outside of the precinct of a crime scene is a real treat, and hopefully the writers will continue to focus on showing other Psych characters outside of their typical habitat. What did you think of this Lassie-centric episode?
This episode featured Lassie going to Shawn and Gus and for help and lead to a sleepover. First off, anytime Lassie spends an extended amount of time with Shawn and Gus it is fantastic. Secondly, it was great that the majority of this episode took place in Prospect Gardens and that time was spent on some of Lassie’s wacky neighbors. This whole episode was a nice change of pace from a normal Psych episode, if there is such a thing. Plus this episode gave viewers the sight of seeing crazy Lassie going after Gus with a sword. Gus screaming may be the funniest thing ever. What part made you laugh the most?
The killer of the episode was predictable once it was discovered that Lassie, as well as the dead guy at the beginning of the episode, was being drugged. Amy always appeared and scrubs, and assumedly was a nurse or someone with access to drugs. What was unpredictable was the motives behind it, so the fact that she was crazy and had a deal about rejection was a nice touch, and it made sense. The writers could have shown more of the tenants of Prospect Gardens interacting with one another. It could have just been a small moment, nothing intense. This could have made the episode slightly better because all the tenants are completely crazy in one way or another, so seeing their craziness mingle would have been fantastic. Who was your favorite tenant?

Lassie: “No, no it’s not. It’s not haunted you simpletons! It’s nothing more than nonsense probably, and since nonsense is your specialty, I thought I would come here first.”
