PSYCH: Viagra Falls

After several weeks off due to either laziness or faulty DVRs, I am back with my Psych blog! Who's excited? Anyone??  Sigh.....

A flashback without Shawn?? I'm guessing that this episode has a little more to do with Henry than normal.

Old chief, Herb, is has been killed, and Henry is sad. But Carl Weathers (Boone) and William Devane (Peters) roll up in a pimpin' car to take care of this. And they seem to be out manuevering Shawn in claiming this is not a suicide, but a murder.

Shawn: He was killed in another location, TBS.
Gus: It's TBD.
Shawn: Then what's TBS?
Gus: It's the superstation.
Shawn: Is it really though?

BURN!

Herb always went to bed with his Jewish six shooter, and would never "have an affair" with a Beretta, further proving this is a murder. Lassie is thinking of naming his gun now... Mr. Thunderstick. Really? Looks like Shawn has his work cut out for him this week, as the old dudes are really doing well.

Old dudes are not impressed with Shawn and Gus's "malarky, shenanigans or tomfoolery."  Understandable... I love Gus giving Boone the eye and trying to be just like him. Adorable. Also adorable - Boone trying to tell Juliet to get him a fresh cup of coffee and donuts when he gets back. You know, cuz he's old school. And pretty ladies aren't detectives.

Did everyone else just love Gus's "coming in peace" face?  Shawn and Gus are asking the churro lady for information since Boone and Peters were already interviewing the first lead. And if you want information, you ask the churro lady. She says Herb was dating a young lady, Samantha, who works at the shop next to Herb's. But she hasnt been around in the shop for a few days. Hmmmm.... Old guys think it wasn't an affair and tell the boys to think before they speak. Ha! like that will ever happen

Jules says they have a search warrant for Herb's house and to meet there in an hour. Shawn and Gus do their normal "search the scene before the police arrive" bit, but unfortunately Boone and Peters are already there. They like to do things old school. Of course, Peters is looking at papers and Boone is sniffing a model plane, Shawn and Gus start to realize they are these old guys. But now they are talking about fishing. Shawn says that someone was searching for something in the house that Herb was trying to hide. The old guys get mad that Shawn is accusing Herb of inpropriety. But Peters and Boone maybe he was hiding something, but it wasn't at the house. When they turn around and whisper about it, Shawn and Gus realize that maybe the turning around and whispering maneuver isn't as secret as they think since they can hear every word the old guys are saying! (I sense a theme with this episode...) Shawn realizes where the locker is, and separately, but together, go with Peters and Boone to find Herb's locker when Jules and Lassie finally arrive to search the house.

Peters and Boone bicker like Shawn and Gus. After Boone picks the wrong locker, Shawn points out which is the right one, and Gus goes to break into the locker (he had a subscription to safe cracking magazine!). Inside the locker, there is a bag.... of white powder wrapped in plastic. Draw your own conclusions as we head to commerical.....

Back at SBPD, things are looking bad as it becomes more and more likely that Herb was involved in drugs. No one wants to believe it, so they are all in search of a rational explination. The 50 grand that Herb withdrew from his account a few days before he died isn't helping either. Shawn notices that the old guys took a book of matches from evidence and then ran out of here. So they follow them. Of course they are riding their ass, so Peters and Boone tell them to back off. But Shawn and Gus try to convince the old guys to let them help because "between the four of [them] they have over 300 years of crimefighting under their belts."  They agree, and now they are "the grapples." The matchbook was from a club called The Dollhouse (is Dushku there??) and they agree to meet at 9. When they get there, Boone and Peters are already there. Between the info the two sets of guys have gathered they decide that the young girl was using her feminine wiles to hustle Herb out of money.

Jules calls and says that the finger prints belong to drug dealer, Otto, who, guess what, big surprise, owns The Dollhouse! Jules says don't talk to him and don't touch anything in his office, which is basically telling these four guys to do the exact opposite! The four see the staff entrance is blocked by a "Billy Zane action figure" (they love Billy Zane), so after all the ridiuclous ways to get around him are discussed, Gus smartly suggests they just go outside and look for an open window. While searching the office they find a gun with serial numbers scratched off (like on the boat, but to be fair, it's also like any gun in any movie/tv show ever when someone doesn't want a gun to be traced) and a list of dates labeled "second wind" (a phrase Shawn noticed scribbled on a piece of paper in Herbs house), and a bag like in herbs locker. Two bodyguards come in to the office and beat the old guys down and Shawn and Gus run after them.  Shots are fired and Gus, well, leaps about 10 feet over behind a car. It was great. And the shots fired.... went right into Otto's chest. So I guess we won't be questioning him.

At SBPD the next day, Chief is very very upset. Otto's dead and they got nothing (except takeout menus) out of his office. So all four are fired and off the case. Henry is in trouble too. Shawn is not happy to be fired and tells Gus they need to reunite with the old guys because it's obvious Boone took more than just menus. So they go find the old guys (playing checkers in the park, natch) to find what Boone also took. It was a binder with records. Shawn wants to go and get the girl, but the old guys are feeling beaten down after the crazy of last night. Shawn notices that Sara Lynn (the girl) used Herb as a reference on her application at The Dollhouse, so they are back on the case.

The girl they go see says she told the cops everything already. All four answer with "you're lying," but for some extra flair Boone pulls a gun.

Peters: How did you know she was lying?
Shawn: I'm a psychic, Peters.
Gus: How did you guys know she was lying.
Peters & Boone: She's a woman!

This girl tells them how she worked at the Pacific Treasures shop - someone dropped off a bag, and she delivered it to Otto at The Dollhouse. She was supposed to find a replacement girl, and found Sara Lynn. Shawn figures out that Second Wind is the boat the drugs would come in on, and the girls were essentially mules. Sara Lynn reminded Herb of his daughter, Caroline, and was trying to protect her. He didn't want Sara Lynn to get caught so he was trying to buy her freedsom (the 50K) and took her last delivery (the cocaine in her locker). Shawn figures out Sara Lynn is at Herb's house. He notices a bunch of keys from his memory, I think he's going to explicate what happened soon. And he should hurry up with that because the killer has Sara Lynn in the house at gun point.

Thankfully after the long commerical break (just kidding.... I'm watching this on the DVR. It took me 5 seconds to FF) we learn these 4 aren't stupid and know that Sara Lynn isn't alone in there. Peters suggests the break in a back window and light a grease fire in the bathroom (aka Shawn and Gus style). But Shawn suggest teh Bark and Mark (aka Peters and Boone style). It works. Crazy drug dealer says that they should leave. They distract drug dealer for awhile, and then Peters and Boone take him down. Lassie and Jules are around the sides of the house and finish up and arrest him. Boone finally gives Jules some props. When druge dealer escapes Peters and Boone knock him out cold (it is Carl Weathers, afterall!)

Shawn: Man, do you think we will still be able to knock dudes out cold when we're in our sixties?
Gus: We can't knock dudes out now.
Shawn: I hear that.

(Next week.... Chi McBride!!!! Kevin Alejandro!!!!! Who's excited?? Based on exclamation point useage, I'd say me!! Man, Kevin Alejandro's agent has been working overtime recently!)

Chief congratulates the four and chooses to ignore they were all fired. Boone tries to adopt Gus, but Gus points out he's in his 30s and has parents so......

In the psych-outs, Corbin Bernsen gets a red card. So I guess this was probably filmed somewhere between June 11- July 11. :)

Ok.... that's it for now. Fun to see "future Shawn and Gus" and I enjoyed Carl Weathers and William Devane, so I wouldn't be opposed to bringing them back.

For those wondering, they are writing the second half of the season now, probably to start airing early 2011. Plus there will be the annual holiday episode in November/December. Somewhere in the second half of the season, I'd assume most likely the finale, they will deal with the Yin/Yang cliffhanger from last season. The episode will once again be written and directed by James Roday, so guaranteed to be classic. He is quite the talent. Why does he not get recognized for that?? Lame. Also I'm hoping they deal with the Jules/Shawn thing. Seriously. They should be married with 2 kids by now.

as far as the red card is concerned, I'm not sure whether it was a reference to the World Cup or to Bernsen's role in "Major League." Receiving a red tag in your locker meant you, "Just died and went to the minors." I'd be curious to find out what it was a reference to.

Thank you so much for sharing it.
Like similar ED pills Silagra relaxes the penile blood vessels when a man is sexually stimulated. This leads to blood flow into the penis, resulting in an erection.

Silagra
