Early on in Psych 3: This Is Gus, Juliet worries that Shawn’s investigation into mom-to-be Selene’s previous will jeopardize her final probability at being a godparent. The guts-to-heart that adopted a minimum of hinted at “Shules” revisiting the concept of beginning a household of their very own.
“[Gus and Selene’s] youngsters are the closest I’ll ever get to being a mum or dad, now that we’ve determined that we’re not… you understand,” Jules mentioned to husband Shawn, alluding to a dialog they’d in Psych 2: Lassie Come House (which largely revolved round a false being pregnant alarm for the marrieds). “I do know we agreed that we don’t should outline ourselves by youngsters,” Jules added. “It’s simply feeling actually ultimate of the sudden.”
“Effectively, it doesn’t should,” Shawn responded,…earlier than segueing right into a collection of man-child jokes about conception help, given their fortysomething ages.
That scene appeared to arrange a minimum of the likelihood that, on the finish of Psych 3‘s misadventures, Shawn and Jules would uncover that, greatest laid plans be damned, they too had been in a household manner. However no such twist got here to be.
“After we speak about, ‘What are we going to do with Shawn and Juliet?’ in the event that they don’t need to have youngsters, the fascinating factor is, ‘What’s the repercussion of that?’” collection creator Steve Franks advised TVLine. “We at the moment are within the space the place we’re like, ‘Years in the past, you mentioned I’m not having youngsters, and it’s virtually off the desk now, in order that’s a really actual factor. There’s an actual drama there, like, ‘What’s going to occur with that call, and is that this expertise [with Gus and Selene] going to vary that?’”
Maggie Lawson, who for #8SeasonsAnd3Movies has performed Juliet, advised TVLine, “One of many issues I like about Psych 3 is that — as in actual life once you watch different folks undergo these life modifications and experiences — you’re like, ‘Yeah, I’m not doing that,’ or ‘I am doing that.’ That once you see different folks doing it, it form of makes you return and revisit, ‘Perhaps what I felt 5 years in the past I don’t really feel now… and what I really feel now I’m most likely not going to really feel 5 years from now.’
“So, I like that we open up the door like that at first of Psych 3 with Shawn and Jules,” Lawson added. “And I like that we don’t wrap it up.”
Sequence creator Franks affirmed that Juliet and Shawn’s future as mother and father themselves “is left a bit obscure,” after elevating the questions: “Has this expertise scarred Shawn so badly that he’ll by no means have youngsters, or is that this going to be the type of catalyst that takes him to the subsequent stage? And that’s enjoyable to play with.”
