    A genius sleuth is threatened with jail time for solving a crime he could only have figured out if h had been a conspirator in said criminal activity, unless he was a psychic.

    7 YEARS LATER

    The sleuths fiancée, a girl cop, is all in a fluster that psychics are not real and she's been a dupe for his shenanigans for the last 7 YEARS.

    Surprise!

    News Flash!

    Psychics are not real!

    So.

    How dumb was she?

    But did she spell "Superhumanly" correctly? ;)

    "Humane" means to care about your common man, or treat with tenderness.

    There's every chance that that was a Freudian slip as much as a typo, but then some argue that all typos are Freudian slips.

    Never heard of the show. I thought this thread was about Shakespeare.

    The show is awesome, but for a show on for seven years the characters never change or grow. You can't tell the difference between the pilot and a new episode besides age and weight gain.

    How isn't Sean Peter Pan?

    Until this recent daunting explosion, he was on the wedding track, living with a woman & talking about children.

    Then BOOM!

    Which is pretty much what ALL series television drama was like until Hill Street Blues came along in 1981.

    The only thing that is completely consistent is the secret pineapple which the crew hides some where in the shooting location before filming starts... Have you checked Netflix yet scotpens?

    If Dule's character recognisably grows up, he'll just be Charlie from the West Wing again, which is exactly what he was trying to avoid when he took this part.

    I always thought she was just knowingly playing along...

    Yeah, her reaction to "finding out" really doesn't fit the character as has been portrayed up until now.

    On a related note, I wasn't sure if this was about Grimm or Psych until I read the first post.

    Same here - though Juliet in Grimm is more fucking annoying than anything else! (They really need to get rid of her, especially now that Nick and Monroe have seen sense and moved in together)

    Lassy can't believe Sean is a psychic?

    Jules "Sean is not a psychic!"

    Lassy "Haven't I been telling you that every day for the last seven years?"

    I definitely know the chief is, and Lassister just accepts that he's full of drek. I guess they wanted to cover the other extreme with Juliet even though it seemed pretty obvious that she knew, too.

    What's really odd is her reaction though. What Sean's been doing isn't much worse than what Declan did and she was all over him when she found out. Considering Sean's success rate and the sheer volume of aid he's provided, who cares if he's just hyperperceptive or "psychic?" It amounts to the same thing, just with different labels...

    If the chief was eventually/has always been in on it, then Sean was very quickly out of danger of being locked away for crimes they thought he was involved in unless he's the Lex Luthor of Santa Barbara and has been involved with every crime he has so called solved.

    Karen was pregnant in season 1.

    Pregnant women, opposed to pregnant men, are all crazy people.

    Saner than regular women, but still crazy.

    Surely if Chief Vic believed that anyone who claims to have psychic powers might be able to close cases that she should be hiring more psychics, by the pound and the bushel.

    Yeah, I can't believe it took her seven years to figure it out. And also: does she really have a right to be all that mad? Like Shawn said, he's helped put away dozens and dozens of criminals. Who cares what methods he used to do so?

    Would people pay less money to see David Copperfield if he used real magic?

    Exactly, like on Castle no one cares because he helps.

    What's Castle's lie?

    I'm only here because I want to shtup Beckett?

    Castle like Sean (and like Patrick Jane) is a Consultant.

    Sean's credentials however are fraudulent.

    Maybe 30 percent of the reason why Juliet wanted to marry Sean is that she wanted her kids to have telepathic powers?

    (I love it when Sean mocks the mentalist.)

    I thought her reaction was over the top, but I guess they had to go and ruin the relationship for drama. Too bad too, because I was finally liking them together after really not wanting them together and hating the relationship.

    She had to be pretty stupid to not know it was a lie, but of course, that's why they previously drove home how much she can't stand dishonesty (cue her father and step-father), but really, she's pathetically stupid to believe she can maintain a lasting relationship with someone where neither party never, ever, lies, even a small one.
