Warning: Spoilers for the S6 finale discussed

Psych‘s Season 6 comes to an end tonight on USA Network. This season has been hilarious and has featured some great guest star appearances. Favorite episode, for me, has to be “This Episode Sucks.” I think my stomach is still hurting from laughing so hard. A few months later and it remains on my DVR if that says anything. I just loved it so much I can’t quite bring myself to delete it just yet.

But let’s focus on the finale, called “Santabarbaratown.” Here’s a synopsis:

Shawn, Gus and Henry reopen a cold case, and revisit all the old suspects, including the son of a millionaire who was dating her at the time she went missing. Psych fans can speak with Papa Spencer himself, the legendary Corbin Bernsen on Psych Character Chatter live throughout the airing of the finale.

I’ve seen the episode and it’s a good one. Six things you need to know about the finale:

  • It’s funny but it also has some serious moments.
  • Shawn deals with his daddy issues as he works alongside Henry on this case.
  • Gus’ sweet tooth knows no bounds.
  • There’s a reference to the movie Summer School, which I completely appreciate because I love that Mark Harmon movie so much.
  • Shawn goes into protective mode where Juliet is concerned. But they do take baby steps in their relationship too. It’s pretty cute.
  • Get ready for a big cliffhanger that’ll make this hiatus hella painful.

Actually, there’s one more thing you need to know: there’s another lineup of great guest stars including these four:

Rob Estes: There are no words that can express how awesome it is to see Estes back on USA Network, the channel that aired his late great cop series, Silk Stalkings, in the ’90s. Remember that show? Chris Lorenzo and Rita Lee Lance fighting crime in glamorous Palm Beach? I still hated the tragic ending the show gave us when Estes and his partner-in-crime fighting — Mitzi Kapture — left the show. If you’ve never seen Silk Stalkings, I suggest you watch it online or get it on DVD. It’s cheesy but it’s really good. Chris and Rita had this amazing chemistry à la Beckett and Castle. Ever since his Silk Stalkings days, the actor has been Amanda Woodward’s significant other on Melrose Place; he was Oliver in the Brooke Shields sitcom, Suddenly Susan; and until fairly recently, he was the dad on the CW’s 90210.

Amanda Schull

Amanda Schull: When I was watching the finale, I immediately recognized this actress, but wasn’t sure from what project. And when I looked it up, I can’t believe that I forgot. She was the lead in the ballet flick, Center Stage. I love that movie! This only means I need to watch it again sooner rather than later. Other than Center Stage, she did several episodes of One Tree Hill playing Clay’s late wife, Sara Evans, in flashbacks. She was also Sara’s lookalike, Katie Ryan, the girl who stalked Clay and eventually shot him and his girlfriend, Quinn. Schull has done a couple episodes of Hawaii Five-O and three episodes of Pretty Little Liars as well.

Lolita Davidovich: On the big screen, Davidovich starred in such movies as Blaze, Now and Then and Gods and Monsters. But, she’s been doing some work on the small screen too. She appeared in a few episodes of Showtime’s The L Word; the HBO film, Cinema Verité; and guest starred on a couple episodes of TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles in Season 2 (as one of Korsak’s ex-wives).

Max Gail: He’ll always be Wojo from the late ’70s/early ’80s sitcom, Barney Miller. But, over the years, he’s been in everything from Trapper John, M.D. to Walker, Texas Ranger to NCIS and Gary Unmarried.

The Psych Season 6 finale airs tonight at 10/9c on USA Network. Here’s a promo and a couple clips of “Santabarbaratown”:
