[Warning: Spoilers for Psych’s 100th episode]

It’s time to give USA Network’s Psych a major shout out!

Tomorrow night the show hits a big milestone. Yes, “100 Clues” is the comedy’s 100th episode and it’ll be a big event since 1. It’s a gigantic homage to the movie, Clue. 2. Fans will have the power to determine the ending of the episode. PSYCH-O’s will be able to cast their votes on and Twitter using custom hashtags for each possible culprit: #PsychButlerDDit, #PsychGroupieDDit, #PsychManagerDDit, #PsychAuthorDDit and #PsychHostDDit.

Synopsis for “100 Clues”: Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) attend a secret party at a historical Santa Barbara mansion hosted by an aging rockstar named Billy Lipps (guest star Steve Valentine), a man the SBPD arrested years ago for a murder he doesn’t remember committing.

We’ve seen the episode (and it’s so much fun!) and here’s what else to expect:

  • If you’re normally the type of person who fast forwards through the opening credits, don’t! This episode has a super-fun, specially-made Clue-related segment that you won’t want to miss.
  • For all those who love their easter eggs, keep your eyes peeled for a pineapple appearance.
  •  If you love chocolate (who doesn’t?!) and you like to see Shawn & Gus get their groove on (again, who doesn’t?!), you’re in luck. This episode debuts a truly epic and imitation-worthy chocolate dance. Get a sneak peek of it in the video below but be sure to tune in to see it in all its glory. This dance alone gives me another reason to crave chocolate!

And since this is a Psych episode, there’s so much Guest Star Goodness to be had:

Steve Valentine: He’s best known for playing Dr. Nigel Townsend on Crossing Jordan and he replayed a shrink during season 9 of NCIS. He’s also guest starred on Anger Management, Drop Dead Diva and Just Shoot Me.

Christopher Lloyd: Of course, Lloyd’s one of the Clue alums [he was Professor Plum] that’s on board for the reunion on Psych. And, we all know and worship him as Dr. Emmett Brown in the Back to the Future franchise. His TV Credits include playing Reverend Jim Ignatowski on the late great sitcom, Taxi. And he guest starred in an excellent episode of Fringe called “The Firefly.”

Lesley Ann Warren: She was a Golden Globe nominee for her work in Clue [Miss Scarlet] and has starred in a ton of movies. On TV, she was Susan’s [Teri Hatcher] neurotic mother on Desperate Housewives. And on USA Network’s In Plain Sight, she was Mary’s [Mary McCormack] alcoholic mother. She’s also guest starred on Crossing Jordan, Will & Grace and The Practice.

Martin Mull: In Clue, he was Colonel Mustard. The TV veteran gained fame on the ahead of its time comedy series called Fernwood Tonight. Some of his other credits include stints on The Larry Sanders Show, Roseanne [he was Leon Carp], Sabrina the Teenage Witch, The Ellen Show and ‘Til Death.

Curt Smith: Smith is making another appearance on Psych having guest starred in an earlier episode (“Shawn 2.0”). But this guy is best known for being one half of the 80s pop group Tears for Fears, who made it big with songs like “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” and “Shout.” Enough said.

Garrett Morris: He was one of the original Not Ready for Primetime Players otherwise known as the cast of Saturday Night Live. Over the years he’s done stints on The Jeffersons, It’s Your Move, Hunter and starred in The Jamie Foxx Show. Currently, he’s on CBS’ Two Broke Girls.
