Shawn and the SBPD are eager to solve dollar counterfeit case, but the Treasury has jurisdiction and sends cocky special agent Lars Ewing, irresistible in Juliet's eyes, who brings his trusted 'psychic', Lindsay Leikin, equally to Lassiter's taste. Only Shawn confidently sets out to prove Leikin, who promises the inverse, a fraud. While formally cooperating, both teams rival in a race to beat the other. Despite Lar's competence and Lindsay's foul play, Shawn cracks the case, and his challengers. Written by KGF Vissers

All About Lou
15 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As with most "Psych" episodes, "Psy vs. Psy" is hilarious and clever. I'd even consider it one of the best episodes of the series.

After chasing a counterfeiter to Santa Barbara, federal agent Lars Ewing (Lou Diamond Phillips) and psychic Lindsay Leikin (Bianca Kajlich)face off against the SBPD and psychic Shawn Spencer to find the perp first.

Lou Diamond Phillips plays a smart, strict, and "manly" man who doesn't know how to laugh because he never learned to as a child. His performance alone fuels the episode. Him and Lassy face off against each other in comical ways. Shawn and sidekick Gus "Silly Pants" Jackson are hilarious as always as Shawn faces off with another psychic.

If you watch "Psych" and missed this episode, go back and watch it. You'll be glad you did.
