Psych "Office Space" Episode Review

*Review contains spoilers, so read at your own risk!*

This has got to be one of the funniest episodes I've seen! I was laughing so hard!

Who else was confused at the very beginning when we see Shawn sleeping over at Juliet's place? I sure was! I was confused up until the point that they actually said why Shawn was over there. Because with how the last episode ended, I didn't think Juliet was in that stage of wanting to get back together. In fact, didn't she say she didn't want to get back together? So, I'm still confused on when she said that they were doing a "trial" period to see how things go. Like when was that decided?

Anyways, onto the episode. Gus shows up at Shawn and Juliet's place because he's in major trouble. I thought it was funny how nobody thought that Gus still worked at his job. Personally, I didn't really, either, just because it hadn't been mentioned in such a long time. Remember when Gus used to mention it all the time? Anyways, that's how the episode starts. Gus explains what happened that day. His boss is really rude and was jerking around his secretary and Gus couldn't take it anymore and so he stood up for her! But he said somethings that he probably shouldn't have. Then by the end of the day, he decided to quit his job! He was going back that night to do something (I can't remember what) and I'm not really sure how he got into his boss's office, but he did and Gus realized his boss was murdered! Gus saw his note (that his boss hadn't read, yet) in his hand and he tried to take it out! But that just created a huge mess and then a bunch of other stuff happened in the process. 

Then he thinks to go to Shawn's house and then guess what they think to do? Go back to the crime scene! Shawn is kind of shocked to see what happened there and then they try to clean everything up when they mess up even more stuff! How bad is that? That's when they finally realize they need more help and go to Henry.

Now the next day, they go back there to try and see what to do and the police are there! Which isn't good at all because of all the evidence they've left behind or tampered with. Gus is not good at all under pressure or trying to act surprised at stuff. But that was one of the funniest parts of the show when he tries to act like he saw his dead boss for the first time! 

Juliet also gets involved with Shawn and Gus when Shawn decides to tell her what really happened and now she has to keep it a secret, too. She's also not really good at lying, either. Neither is Woody when they told him! They had to tie Woody up in their office to keep him quiet! Poor guy, though, they ended up forgetting about him the whole day and didn't realize it until they got back to the office that night.

It ended up being the corporate guy that came down because of something that happened. Can't remember what. But they figured all that out because Gus had gotten promoted to Vice President! Oh, I think it was because the guy that killed Gus' boss was in fact making the companies look like they were doing great, when in reality, they weren't and I think the boss found that out and that's how that happened.

After all this, Juliet has decided to not want to be involved on how they solve their cases. I think that's a smart move on her part.
