I mean, the whole episode was so interesting, the bank robbery, the hostages, Shawn investigating and then they totally muddled the hostage retrieval, we didn't get to see what happened with the fake bank robber, zip. At least some hint would have been nice. But the case was interesting, at least.
I loved how Shawn felt so guilty about Gus having been taken a hostage. And Henry rushing over to warn Shawn - but the fact that the hostage rescue was simply not shown, cut off made Henry's arrival pointless, it turned it just into a scene to show that yes, Corbin Bernsen was still on the show *sigh*
Gary Cole was funny though!
And Shawn and Juliet... I really like this pairing but it seems like the writers are just too heavy handed in handling their romance. It's either too "in the face" or not there at all. And it's too bad because they are such a nice couple :(
