On Wednesday night, actress Molly Ringwald appeared as a nurse at a mental institution that was infiltrated by Shawn and Gus on Psych.Â Molly, of course, is known for her work on the 80â€™s series Facts of Life and classic 80â€™s films like Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club. In recent years she has appeared on the ABC Family Channel series The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
Actor Brad Dourif was also a guest star in this episode. Dourif was the patient in the mental institution that everyone thought killed his assistant. Dourif is a veteran of movies and TV having co-starred in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers as well as appeared in many TV series including Fringe, Deadwood and Once Upon a Time.
It was a double header on Thursday night with actor Alan Dale and actress Aubrey Dollar appearing on the new episode of Person of Interest.
Alan, of course, is best known for his work on The O.C. and Lost, but he also appeared in the first season of NCIS, had a recurring role on Ugly Betty and 24.

That same night on Burn Notice, actors Rick Gomez and Jonathan Adams appeared as a scientist and lunatic warlord respectively.
