Psych “True Grits” Review – Will Shawn and Jules Survive a Lover’s Spat?

Psych (USA) True Grits

In tonight’s episode of Psych, called “True Grits”, Shawn and Gus have to deal with a very sticky situation. They have to clear a man who was wrongly convicted of a crime, without the help of the police. Why? Because their client doesn’t want anything to do with the officer who put him behind bars the first place. Trouble is, that person is Juliet; more trouble is that the client is offering them $10,000 to do it.

See? Like I said, sticky situation.

Shawn of course wants to take the money but that of course means that the case actually comes between him and Juliet. Things get even more interesting when every lead Shawn and Gus track down actually seems to point back to the guy they’re trying to clear in the first place.

In the end, everyone finally starts working together again to solve the case, discovering that it was a dad trying to hide his own 30 year-old crime at the root of all the trouble. Best of all, our happy lovers survive their first real test of their relationship in the workplace. I was quite proud to see that though they both were out to prove the other wrong, Shawn and Juliet didn’t let the disagreement tear them apart. Looks like those two are in this for the long haul.

My favorite bits..

Yay! It’s Chuck! No, wait, I mean God. Oh wait. Wrong show.

Shawn’s anger at finding out there was a list of people who wanted to kill him, but not Gus as well.

Shawn knowing which penal code was for rubbing up against a woman on a subway. Do I even want to know how he knows that? No…..probably not.

Gus’ little squeak when Thane tried to claim that just over two years was a long time to spend in jail.

Shawn and Gus trying to declare they were too busy..before peeking back at the Hungry Hungry Hippos Game behind them.

Thane’s story bringing Shawn and Gus to tears.

“Just because you put syrup on something, don’t make it pancakes.” – You know that’s right.

Gus correcting every bit of Shawn’s story about Shane – except for the horse part.

Gus not only running away in terror from the awkward conversation between Shawn and Juliet, but driving away from it as top speed.

“That means that person is in prison, and is a woman.”
“Which one of those is the problem?”

Thane stating that he lost his youth, after a two whole years in jail.

“And while I don’t have a meat dress, I do have a tie entirely made of beef jerky.”

The little clicking sound of doubt that Gus made when Shawn was talking on the phone with Juliet about how well they were getting along.

“I do like it when you get your comeuppance.”
“I like it when you shutuppance.”

Gus and his teeny tiny hammer.

Shawn promising Gus that he would punch him in the face if he didn’t stop spitting.

Shawn and Gus both making the clicking sound of doubt when Henry said he didn’t know anything about hiring extra help with his deck.

Shawn and Gus playing rock-paper-scissors to see who had to open the refrigerator. Kinda disappointed we didn’t get a girly scream of terror from either of them when the body came out though.

“I can’t believe I’m back in jail. The days are already beginning to blur together.”
“You’ve been in here for three hours.”

Thane’s lawyer having to continually point out which things Thane wasn’t going to actually do.

Shawn’s “Aw hell nah!” when Thane said they were fired.

Henry changing his advice to Shawn as soon as he found out how much Thane was going to pay them.

You know, as many times as they’ve used that car coming out of nowhere thing on TV shows, it STILL makes me jump every single time.

Shawn running over to make sure that Juliet was okay. Aw.

Wait. Lassie’s a ghost? Somebody get the salt! Oh wait. Wrong show again. Dammit, I keep doing that.

Best Psych-Out: Dule punching the crap out of Tim because *he* flubbed his line. LOL!
