This season started out with a bang with the first episode, one of my favorites of the series, and while some of the middle episodes didn't seem to have quite the same verve as other seasons, I love how things were both changing and being wrapped up from all the storylines that had been going throughout. "S.E.I.Z.E. the Day" was one of my favorites of this season, and "A Touch of Sweevil" was a wonderful throwback to the first season all-out wackiness.
But the real strength here was that the writers took care to wrap everything up. Not just cobble it together, but really take these storylines that we've invested in throughout these eight seasons and bring them to full, sometimes startling, and ultimately satisfying conclusions. I laughed and cried and laughed and cried and laughed some more throughout "The Break-Up," which had so many goosebump-inducing moments. It was one of the most satisfying concluding episodes of any show I've seen, and just makes me love Psych all the more.
