Kristy Swanson is making her return to “Psych” in Wednesday’s (April 3) episode, titled “Cirque du Soul” — but Lassiter’s girlfriend transitioning out of prison is not a smooth road, star Timothy Omundson tells Zap2it.
“The first time you’re going to see her … is at her parole hearing. She will get sprung from the hoosegow,” says Omundson. “We have to figure out some living logistics because her parole officer happens to be one of the many, many ex-lovers of Lassiter. It apparently didn’t end well with her and she takes it out on my lady-love. It’s a great episode.”
We haven’t seen the episode, but we second that — anything involving Lassie’s love life is excellent. So, do these living logistics mean that Lassiter and Marlowe are living together?
“Come now. Do you think Lassiter is ever really going to settle down that much?” laughs Omundson. “He’s thought about it … but we haven’t actually seen co-habitation yet.”
“At one point, he may think that’s a great idea, but things don’t always go the way one plans when it comes to love,” Omundson continues. “Lassiter may just be set up for another tremendous heartbreak. We’ll see. I think he would go Ted Kaczynski if he did get another heartbreak.”
“Can you imagine Lassiter pouring himself even more into his job? Terrifying. Although very fun to play,” he adds.
We have some speculation as to where Marlowe ends up, based off of USA’s bathtub picture on Facebook. Is she at Juliet’s house? We don’t know for sure, but actress Maggie Lawson teases something like that.
“O’Hara has his back emotionally. She really steps up to the plate as a friend … [but] sometimes it’s very, very uncomfortable for her. There’s some things about Lassiter that she doesn’t want to see or know, and can’t be unseen or unknown,” says Lawson.
Poor O’Hara. But either way, Omundson says this has been a great character arc for Lassiter and we could not agree more.
“I’m so grateful [to the writers] for creating this storyline for him. He finally has an emotional partner and a life partner. We’ll see where the relationship goes. Lassiter’s a crusty old dog, so we’ll see if she can truly tame him,” he says.
“Psych” airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on USA.
