How do the guys go from solving a murder to baby mama drama? It starts out as simple as this: Shawn and Gus go undercover as food truck purveyors in an attempt to solve the murder of the owner of their favorite food truck.

Star Kirsten Nelson told Zap2it in a pre-show interview that "1967: A Psych Odyssey" is really the show's goodbye episode, with not many dry eyes on set when they filmed Lassiter and Juliet's final scene. We could not agree more -- pass the tissues, please, we're still crying.
But never fear, "Psych"-Os. This is not the last you've seen of Chief Vick or Juliet. "Chief Vick is no longer the chief of the Santa Barbara Police Department," says Nelson. "But we all get a little appearance later. You'll see the chief again. I will be back, in a different form and a different time. But yes, the chief will be back."
With that bit of good news, let's relish in the best lines and GIFs from the episode.

Kirsten Nelson says it look almost three years of lobbying the producers of “Psych” to give her an opportunity to direct an episode. Nelson, who has played police chief Karen Bick since the 2006 pilot, should have been careful about what she wished for. She was informed last winter that she would be directing “1967: A Psych Odyssey,” an episode that includes flashbacks to the past, a musical performance by actor Dule Hill (hilariously referred to as the “cocoa crooner” in the episode) alongside several emotional changes for the series – which is currently in its final season. “When they gave »

As its final run of episodes starts, "Psych" is time-traveling for "1967: A Psych Odyssey," which sees the gang solving a decades-old murder, all the while dealing with some very big changes for the Sbpd family.
For star Kirsten Nelson, it was an episode filled with many emotions because not only is Chief Vick leaving and the show coming to an end, but it was also her directorial debut.
"When they offered me this episode, I was really excited. ... Then I got the script and my heart melted. It was such an emotional one," Nelson tells Zap2it, "but I was so honored that we kept it in the family to direct this pivotal episode. It definitely requires the touch of somebody who's been there for eight years to really, really understand what was exactly happening.
"This episode, there's so many new beginnings, but it's the goodbye episode," she continues. »
The family drama is set in 1963 in Mountain West America during the Cold War.

As "Psych" winds down, naturally the actors are going to be looking back at the work they've done over eight seasons. When Zap2it spoke with Kirsten Nelson about making her directorial debut, we asked her if she can possibly pick a favorite episode of "Psych" from over the years and she says she absolutely can.
It's "There Might Be Blood," the sixth episode of Season 3. In it, Jane Lynch guest-starred as Chief Vick's older sister Barbara, a commander in the Coast Guard.
"The one that's closest to me is the one with Jane Lynch, when she was my sister," says Nelson. "For me, for Kirsten and for Chief Vick, that one was so much fun. Just to have that relationship and to work with Jane."
"I was very nervous with her coming to the set," Nelson continues, "because she's so funny and she's such a grounded and talented comedian. »
Zap2it spoke with "Psych" actress Kirsten Nelson in preparation for her directorial debut on Wednesday's (Feb. 26) episode of the USA comedy. An interview about that process and the end of "Psych" is coming later in the week, but one of the other topics we touched on was her memorable guest-starring role on "The West Wing."
In the Season 2 finale of NBC's political drama, titled "Two Cathedrals," Nelson played the younger version of Mrs. Landingham, secretary to President Bartlet who in present-day had just been killed in a car accident.
Nelson tells Zap2it that it was actually due to Kathryn Joosten, the actress who played present-day Mrs. Landingham and who passed away herself in 2012, that she auditioned for the role.
"That is still one of the roles that's closest to my heart. I knew Kathy Joosten, we worked together on a very short-lived series called 'Thanks' for CBS, »

Warning: Do not keep reading if you haven't watched the first three episodes of "House of Cards" Season 2 yet. On deck for Tuesday (Feb. 18), "Chapter 16."
Where we are:
This episode focuses on avoiding a government shutdown, with Frank extending an olive branch to the Republicans of agreeing to raise the retirement age and make some entitlement reform if the Republicans will pass the omnibus bill.
The way Frank figures, the retirement age is going to be raised eventually, so why not make a show of bipartisanship and get credit?
Everything seems fine, with Frank working with Senate Majority Leader Hector Mendoza to hammer out a compromise and get him to write in a formal agreement that if the Senate passes the retirement age amendment, it will signify passage of the entire omnibus bill.
Except Tea Party leader Curtis Haas balks and takes his caucus with him. The Republicans' absence means »
Zap2it: You're back on Broadway in "After Midnight." What's that been like?
Dule Hill: After "Bring in Da Funk," I didn't want to do another musical unless it affected me in that same way, and "After Midnight" does that. I love dancing. I started out as a tap-dancer, and any opportunity that has to do with it is a blast.
Zap2it: Most people know you as an actor, not a tap-dancer. Was that your intention?
Dule Hill: When I left Norfolk (Va.) and went to L.A., everyone knew me as a tap-dancer, and I was trying to establish myself as an actor. Aaron Sorkin said, "If more dancers acted like Dule, we need to hire more dancers." It's like a full circle thing.
Zap2it: You had some pretty impressive dance mentors. Who in particular helped mold you?
