Spoiler alert! Don’t proceed if you haven’t seen Peacock’sPsych 3: This is Gus.

Burton Guster is officially a married man and a dad!

Shawn’s BFF celebrated two milestones in one life in the closing minutes of Peacock’s Psych 3: This is us, which fell Thursday after embarking on an unexpected and often rocky roller coaster when it came to learning the truth about Selene and her mysterious past. After Gus and Selene learned the real truth about their secret marriage to an ex, they told her “I want” the only way to move on Psyche – in the middle of the chaos of Selene giving birth to her baby. And of course Shawn was the one who gave birth to the baby.

“It was a lot. It was the wildest I’ve ever shot Psych “,Dule Hill recalled a Zoom interview with ET. “We shot it over two days I think. I’m surprised that [my wife] Jazmyn [Simon, who plays Selene,] did not pass out from all her heavy breathing. I think it was just a perfect highlight of our show’s trip. It’s like we’re raising the bar and in that situation it was just ridiculous, but it’s so fun to shoot when everyone gets together right now. “

James Roday Rodriguez, the co-author Psych 3 along with series creator Steve Franks, admitted that putting this final sequence together was “challenging”.

“If you don’t deliver, it won’t work. So either take up the challenge or risk a relatively disappointing ending to the film,” he told ET. “There was really no other option but to get fully involved. And believe me, there are things that didn’t make the cut that are even more ridiculous. I mean, we didn’t take any punches and we left everything on the field because there wasn’t a better sports metaphor. “

“I think we did a good job of finding the balance because in the end you want this scene to breathe a little and be emotionally relevant too. Amid all the craziness and chaos, she’s still a guide for the series. Gus is a dad at the end of this scene and you don’t want that to get lost in all this madness, “added Rodriguez.” We want fans to enjoy this moment and share it with Gus. So I think a lot of the crazy things that were funny to see probably had to be taken back a bit so that the moment that really counted had to be taken back also had the time and space to live in. That’s the formula we always used on the show It’s those moments that real estate is buying us to do all of our crazy things, so it’s really important to hit the emotionally relevant and resonant character beats so we can do all the silly things the rest of the time . “

Of course, now that Gus is a father and is married to Selene, does things change for Shawn and his own relationship with Juliet? While both were adamant that kids weren’t in their (immediate) future, Shawn’s experience giving birth to Gus’ baby could be what re-opens that conversation in a possible fourth movie.

“I think the characters are old enough now that we can start exploring existential crises and midlife, and what are we really doing? a movie or two. Which, again, is simple, it’s developing a show that we’ve been doing for 16 years, “said Rodriguez.” It’s natural because neither of us ages the other way around. Every time we come back, that’s inherently part of the deal. I think we’ll take it to the full and make as much of it as possible. “

“We also have the opportunity to save time and take a leap forward. The cool thing about these films is that we always start with a clean one [slate], and it’s like ‘What’s the most fun?’ whatever Mandate # 1 is, “he noted.” What do we think fans will appreciate the most? Because in the end we make them for that. That brings us back together every time. It’s that relationship with our fans. This is the blood. That is the source of life. “

However, Hill was more specific about his personal requests, though Psych 4 ever came to fruition.

“I definitely want to see Gus as a father. I want to see all of his neuroses come to light. I want to see how detailed he goes about everything and how it drives everyone else crazy, especially Shawn interaction between Shawn and Gus because Shawn is definitely the godfather. He’s the uncle, but he’s probably going to be far too much of an influence in raising the child the wrong way – at least in Gus’ opinion, the wrong way. “He said.” I’d like to see what happens to Shawn and Juliet, now that this happens to Gus and Selene, I will she have a child? Won’t they? What does that mean for you? What does that mean for Heinrich? To have realized it or not to realize it. “

“Of course I don’t know if the whole story was written about Selene’s backstory. I won’t be surprised if something else comes out that sends her on a journey, Selene. That there is still another card to be revealed, “he suggested.” There will definitely be more to discover in relation to the story of Selene. Perhaps the next one is ‘This is Selene?’ With a question mark. “
