As new episode for Psych
returns every Friday at 10pm on the USA Network, series creator and executive producer Steve Franks spilled the beans on a lot of things, including, for Shawn and Juliet fans, a possible rekindling of old flames between the two.
"The episode we're editing right now is the roller-derby episode, and there's another really just supersweet, great moment [between Shawn and Juliet]. It's not the thing that everyone's thinking, but it sort of steps that way. We always put a toe in, and pull a toe back out. And you know, we're not going to make the mistake of 'They're suddenly dating!' But there is definitely an attraction there. And the relationship with the mom is sort of the first step of Shawn becoming complete enough to be worthy of Juliet."
On the other hand, Shawn's mom Madeline (Cybill Shepherd) will supposedly make an early exit on the next episode and will not be back until episode 14, 15, or 16 in, yes, 2009. However, the residual effect of her big reveal will stay with him for a long time.
"That was an idea I had since the first season, but it was always like, at some point, I was going to have Henry (Corbin Bernsen
) tell him. It's like, they get into a big fight and Henry says, 'Listen, I have to tell you something. Your mom was the one that left.' I could never figure out why it was never right, and it was because Henry would never tell him! And so I came up with the idea: Oh my God! This big reveal has to come from the mom!"
As if those aren't juicy enough, Franks called the roll of guest stars this season as “out of control good” with the likes of Jeff Fahey, Jane Lynch, Steven Weber, and, as previously reported, Justine Bateman.
