Watching the finale for USA’s “Psych” Wednesday night was a bit of an unusual feeling — it was the conclusion to a three-part “Yin and Yang” series that has been played out throughout many finales, with last spring’s Hitchcock-inspired finale serving as the most dramatic of all.
We knew it was going to go out with a bang — but was the bang big enough to justify the journey? That is likely the question that most people are going to inevitably ask themselves after watching this. There was certainly plenty of action (along with scary sequences for Shawn and Gus) — on the other hand, though, it was not the most shocking of conclusions we’ve seen in a while. As a matter of fact, the idea of Yin as just some professor with a dark past (and Yang as his daughter) did not feel nearly as exciting.
That being said, the show introduced a solid new villain in Mena Suvari’s Allison, who could very well return in some shape or form if the hints in this episode ultimately occur.
Overall, the moment that will probably mean the most to people later on is the revelation on Lassiter’s part that Juliet and Shawn or dating. Will he completely bow a gasket — or only to an extent? If nothing else, we should have some even more great character dynamics leading into next season.
Were the laughs in “Yin 3” enough to make for a villain that was hardly as menacing as we’d hoped? Feel free to share your thoughts below!
