USA (ended 2014)
|Just to confirm, a user on the IMDb forum works on the production of Psych in Vancouver. Here's his quote: |
"Tim had been mountain biking one morning prior to working, and fell, breaking his collar bone. So they decided to write it into the show. You'll eventually find out what happened to Lassie, keep watching"
|Actually I thing the way they are handling it in the show is very much in keeping with Lassiters character, he has always been portrayed as a very private person.|
It'slikely that since they have the scripts for the episodes written up weeks in advance, it would have been a major hassle to rewrite them to work Lassiter's injury into the storylines. So they had to content themselves with putting in throwaway lines in here and there, and otherwise pretending it didn't happen. They'll probably address it in the first episode that had it's script written after the injury occurred, or if not then, in the first episode where it's convenient for them to do so.
It might be worth noting that a similar thing happened in the second season of Supernatural, when Jared Padalecki broke his wrist doing a stunt. The writers rewrote the very end of the episode to include Sam falling and breaking his wrist during a fight, and then proceeded to ignore it for the rest of the season. Not one of the characters commented on it; Nobody even asked Sam why he was wearing a cast. Everybody just pretended that it wasn't there.Then, about halfway through the season, the cast just disappeared between episodes. Again, nobody commented on it. Compared to that, I think Psych is doing a very good job of writing the injury into the storyline.
Me and my mom wondered this too. We figrued he did something stupid, and they would've said at the end of the season, but that didn't happen. So then we figured it really happened to the actor. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
