Psych Wiki

Juliet Lynn "Jules" O'Hara (b. September/October 1981) is a main character on the USA Network comedy Psych portrayed by Maggie Lawson. Bailey Herbert plays a young Juliet during a flashback in S6E7 "In for a Penny...".


Juliet was raised in a family of brothers and is shown to be close with her mother, stepfather and siblings. She has a rocky relationship with her estranged conman father, who left her and her mother when she was young. She becomes more sympathetic towards him in "In for a Penny..." when he reveals that he did come to her events growing up but just didn't reveal himself. She has shown that she cares for her mother by leaving her in the dark about his true occupation, knowing that her mother loved him, and even decides not to tell her mother after an incident in Mexico when she realized that her stepfather actually loved her mother. Although it was her father's thieving ways which made her want to become a police officer, she only had enough confidence to go for it when her older brother Ewan joined the military.

Juliet attended the University of Miami and joined the Miami PD as a junior detective shortly after. She was then transferred to Santa Barbara to replace Lucinda Barry as Head Detective Carlton Lassiter's partner. Although she is initially frustrated by her coworkers not taking her seriously enough due to her relatively young age, as the series progresses she is given more responsibility, taking charge of the station when authority figures aren't present. She grows ever more assertive with her partner, and actors Maggie Lawson and Timothy Omundson (who plays Lassiter) both suggest that a strange mutual respect has developed between them.

In "1967: A Psych Odyssey" Juliet left the SBPD to be the Head Detective of the San Francisco Police Department in San Francisco. In "The Break-Up", Shawn moves to San Francisco with her, and with Gus at his side he proposes, which she accepts. They finally get married three years later in Psych: The Movie.


Juliet is both gentle and competitive, but overall professional when it comes to her job. She shows her gentle side when she often has tame down Lassiter's callousness by reminding him that he needs to be more caring towards family and victims. Her competitive side comes out several times, like in "Talk Derby to Me" when she went undercover in a female roller derby player. However, her professional aspect always triumphs whatever is going on, no matter what the situation. Despite the fact that he was her brother, she arrested Ewan when he attempted to murder someone. She has also come through for Shawn and Gus, even when she's upset with them, or doesn't believe what they're saying, showing that even in the most unlikely circumstances, she will still investigate the situation to make certain she's not missing anything.

Similarly, she has been almost sneaky about getting what she wants, as was shown in "Cirque du Soul" when she played matchmaker between Woody and Ursula, Marlowe's parole officer who's upset at Lassiter for not calling after a one-night stand. This made Ursula more lenient to Lassiter and Marlowe's relationship, which allowed Juliet and Shawn their privacy again.

Despite having two cats in "Spellingg Bee", she has shown a greater fondness for dogs as the series progresses and agrees to have pugs with Shawn when they start living together.

Expandable list of Juliet's hobbies

Throughout the show, we learn of several hobbies Juliet enjoys:


With Shawn Spencer[]

Unlike Lassiter, she is friendly with Shawn and willing to work with him and Gus. Although Juliet is bemused by Shawn at first, she has slowly gained respect for him and by the second season, Juliet reveals a "very friendly, comfortable relationship". Despite some initial skepticism, Juliet eventually does believe that Shawn is psychic and then considers him a worthy addition to the force.

Juliet and Shawn had an unspoken-sometimes-spoken relationship that lasted for five seasons. It was clear Shawn had feelings for Juliet, but she had sent mixed signals throughout the show. Juliet finally confirmed her feelings for Shawn in the last episode of the third season by asking him out. However, Shawn had to turn her down because he was on a date with Abigail. Throughout the fourth season, she showed that she was slightly jealous of his relationship with his high school sweetheart, but did not make it obvious to anyone. In season five, they finally begin dating. By the middle of the sixth season, Shawn was willing to marry her in order to make sure that he never lost her. In the middle of season seven ("Deez Nups"), their relationship takes a downward spiral when Juliet finds out that Shawn is not a psychic. Upset, she throws a drink in his face and storms off, leaving their relationship in question. In "Santa Barbarian Candidate" Shawn is ready to throw the whole Psych thing away when Juliet asks him to tell the chief, but Juliet intervenes and saves his cover. By the end of the episode, they are still not together, but they come to some mutual understanding and Shawn said he would wait however long it takes. They are being friendly to each other since then and even had a one night stand. In the end of the episode "Nip and Suck It", Shawn mentions to Gus that they are officially back together.

When he first greets Juliet, he states “Hi, Jules, you look... normal and stuff”, obviously wary of how to act around Juliet. Later on, Shawn appears to be impressed with Juliet’s outfit, but he is unable to tell her so. After this, he tells Juliet, "I refuse to feel uncomfortable around you. It's silly. You mean too much to me, and I am perfectly capable of keeping this [their friendship] platonic, as long as you are." Juliet replies, "I am too! Great!" As she walks away, Shawn wonders aloud, "But how?!" They take what feels like a romantic stroll, as pointed out by Juliet, on a suspension bridge overlooking a river.
  • In "High Noon-ish", Shawn tips his cowboy hat at Juliet and winks at her. Juliet smiles but quickly looks down as if embarrassed.

Shawn does not answer the question, revealing that he had actually been moving towards a clue that he had been looking at while they were moving toward each other. When Rajesh Singh and Juliet go on their pretend date, Shawn, watching from a car, is clearly jealous when Raj starts to hold Juliet's hand, as noted by Gus and Lassiter. Later, Shawn rescues Juliet from an unstable suspect threatening her with a knife. Abigail tells Shawn that she was very impressed that he would risk his life for a random co-worker.

Shawn then calls Juliet and proceeds to give her clues about his whereabouts. The kidnapper tells Shawn to tell "Abigail" that he loves her. Shawn does. Juliet, believing the profession of love to be real, responds by saying, "Shawn, I think I..." Shawn interrupts her by saying, "Goodbye, Abigail." He hangs up. Juliet is clearly confused. After the ordeal, Shawn discusses with Gus the possibility that Juliet was going to say "I love you" back. Although Gus states the strong possibility that she was just doing what she had to do, Shawn is dazed and does not seem totally convinced.
  • In "You Can't Handle This Episode" Juliet's brother Ewan (John Cena) reveals that Juliet has said a lot of good things about Shawn. Later, Ewan says explicitly that Juliet "likes Shawn a lot", and he puts his stamp of approval on Shawn as well. Meanwhile, Abigail leaves for Uganda.
  • In "A Very Juliet Episode", when Juliet tries to investigate the apparent disappearance of her college boyfriend, she asks Gus for help and requests that he does not tell Shawn about it, saying that it's a "tricky situation" and telling Shawn would be like "opening a wound." Juliet then receives news that her college boyfriend Scott might be dead. After receiving the awful news, she and Shawn take a long walk together through the park, during which Shawn gives Juliet a lengthy friendly hug. Shawn then searches high and low for Scott, who turns out to be in witness protection. Once the couple is reunited, Shawn is clearly jealous. Shawn bargains with the criminal Scott put in jail to not have Scott harmed if Shawn will prove the criminal's innocence. Shawn holds up his end of the bargain and even though Scott was no longer in danger, he and Juliet parted ways, agreeing to meet again in a year.
  • In "Death Is in the Air", Juliet gets exposed to the Thornburg virus and Shawn rushes to find the antidote. Upon returning Shawn explains to Gus that the threat of Juliet's mortality made him realize he doesn't have as much time as he thought: he has to tell her how he feels. Gus informs them both that Juliet has not contracted the virus after all, but Shawn tries to go through with his admission anyway. He ultimately stumbles and fails to tell Juliet how he feels, which is immediately followed by Lassiter's entry into the room, effectively killing the moment. When he looks back at her, she looks at him like she knew what he was trying to say.
  • In "Mr. Yin Presents...", the serial killer named Mr. Yin kidnaps both Juliet and Abigail, who just returned from Uganda. Yin forces Shawn to choose one of them to save but only has Juliet read him the clue to save her life. Juliet tries to tell Shawn he can save Abigail but Yin cuts her off.

When he states that he wants to live with her, she agrees and they kiss on a bridge.

He comes out with the truth, and a devastated Juliet throws a drink on him, and stomps off, leaving their relationship a mess, and Shawn wondering if he'll ever be with her again.
  • In "Right Turn or Left for Dead" the whole episode plays as two separate futures. In one future, Shawn gives Juliet Chief Vick's shawl (meaning that Juliet never finds out the truth).

Eventually, Juliet asks Shawn that she cannot forgive him and asks him to move out.
  • In "Juliet Wears the Pantsuit" Shawn is deliberately delaying his packing and then makes a clear stance that he will not move out. Meanwhile, Juliet is looking for a new roommate.

Later when he tries to talk to Juliet, she says she was disgusted and she thought they were making some progress, until that boast. Later, when Shawn was going undercover by running for mayor, he had to attend an event where he needed to bring a "date." Although Juliet wasn't happy about it, she went with him "for the case" as SBPD was also looking into Swagerty's involvement. After an intimate moment on the dance floor, Juliet walked away upset. Shawn followed. Juliet said she still had feelings for Shawn but until Shawn tells about his fake psychic abilities, she cannot forgive him.
  • Then she insists that for things to go back to the way they were, he has to tell the chief the truth. Shawn refuses to do so, and Juliet leaves upset. Later, after solving the case, Shawn and Gus walk in the SBPD headquarters with Gus repeatedly asking Shawn to leave things how they are, but Shawn will hear none of it. He heads to Chief Vick's office and stops to look at Juliet. She looks back and after noticing Gus at the front desk realizes that Shawn is really going to tell Chief Vick the truth.

Chief Vick is upset and tells them off. When she reminds them of what their roles are",... and Mr. Spencer, you are a..." to which Juliet completes as ".... psychic."

  • At the end of "Nip and Suck It", Shawn announces to Gus that he and Juliet are officially back together.

Season Eight[]

  • In 1967: A Psych Odyssey Juliet discloses that she has an offer to be the Head Detective of the San Francisco Police Department, and looks for the input of her friends and colleagues, particularly Shawn. At first, simply for his sake, she appears to have decided not to go. 
  • In The Break-Up, Shawn moves to San Francisco to be with Juliet. He then proposes to her, in which she accepts, but the ring is stolen out of Shawn's hands at the last minute, resulting in them chasing after the criminal together.

With Carlton Lassiter[]

Juliet has a very strong friendship with Lassiter, who is like an older brother to her. Juliet seems to present a gentle counterpoint to Lassiter's gruff, rigid style. She reminds her partner repeatedly to "be sensitive" with the media, the victims, and the witnesses of their cases. She has shown that she cares for her partner by helping Shawn solve a case for him (in order to get him back on his feet when he was upset about his separation with his wife), by refusing to believe that he has died in the episode Lassie Jerky and also through little things, like trying to arrange a birthday party for him.

Juliet also showed that she cared for Lassiter's well-being when she allowed Marlowe to live with her and Shawn in order to allow Lassiter to be with her more often. On the other hand, she has also been very competitive with him, like the time when they were trying to prove who was the better cop based on their scores on the detective exam; Juliet scored 98.4%, taking the exam in Miami, to Lassie's 97.2%. When Shawn heard them arguing over their scores, he revealed that he'd taken the test at age 15 and scored a perfect 100%. Both Juliet and Lassiter, upset at Shawn getting a perfect score, then proceeded to claim the test scores didn't actually mean anything to them.

With Declan Rand[]

In the season five episode Shawn 2.0, Juliet had a brief relationship with criminal profiler Declan Rand. They met at a crime scene when Declan asked her out. She accepted and they spent the next few episodes together. In "Extradition: British Columbia", they broke up before going on vacation together because Juliet realized she had feelings for Shawn.

With Scott Seaver[]

Juliet broke it off with Scott in 2003 when she left California to attend the police academy in Miami. They promised to meet each other seven years later, but he ends up not showing so Juliet starts digging into his past. It turns out he is in the witness protection program for witnessing a murder. They part ways again at the end of "A Very Juliet Episode", but not before promising each other to meet back up in a year.
