Episode cast overview:
Austin Tichenor ...


Wealthy widow Rosemary Tennant is found dead in the gutter outside the 'temple' of her 'psychic guide' Kristina Frye, a despicable fraud in Jane's eyes. Rosemary lived with her children Clara and Travis Tennant, a troubled teenager missing for 10 days, and philander photographer Jeremy Hale. She was about to change her will, presumably disinheriting Travis 'to shake him up', but in favor of which outsider? Patrick dissects all relationships and sets a double-bottomed trap.

Wayne Rigsby: All I'm saying, you can't say there's no such thing as a psychic just because you've never met one.
Kendall Cho: You're right. I've never seen a zebra, doesn't mean they don't exist.
Wayne Rigsby: Never seen a zebra?
Kendall Cho: Nah.
Wayne Rigsby: Never been to a zoo?
Kendall Cho: Yeah I don't get zoos. You pay money to look at animals, why?

This is a bad episode
21 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was happy to see a Psychic detective show debut where they explicitly state that psychics are frauds each episode. This episode features a "real" psychic who not only upstages the main character, makes him cry by "channeling" the spirit of his murdered wife with a message about their murdered daughter. I was waiting for an episode like this where skeptics have their face shoved in the pile of crap that is the status quo. It wasn't enough to have a central character constantly challenge rational and critical thought at every turn, but to make our hero lose the battle of wits? I didn't want to see her humiliated or exposed as a fraud, but at least end their angle with a snappy one-liner. At least "Psych" doesn't pander to the true-believer majority.
