Probably.. But she probably had her baby after the pilot episode, but had to keep acting like she was pregnant in the show. Maybe her husband in the show got her pregnant? Lol, they never said she was married, so it could be written in the story. Maybe they'll have a comical episode where Shawn and Gus have to watch after her in case she goes into labor.. lol

When a man and a woman love each other a whole bunch........ come on I had to do that! lol I dont see how she could be preggo from pilot to now. I mean she would have had her baby in between that time. I think her pregnancy SCREAMS episode.... yep there going to do a whole tummy episode you watch.

Lol I already said they should make an episode about Shawn and Gus having to watch her to make sure she doesn't go into labor. Why gus and shawn? Because her husband is out on a business trip and she thinks Shawns psychic skills can come in handy.. lol

Fargo is a fantastic movie by the Cohen brothers who made The Man Who Wasn't There, The Big Lebowski, O Brother Where Art Thou, and Barton Fink. I'm sure I missed some titles, but anyway, Fargo stars William H. Macy, Steve Buccemi and Frances McDormand as the pregnant police chief who is trying to unravel a mystery that involves a man hiring someone to kidnap his wife that ends up with several murders, but it's a cark comedy, like so much of the Cohen brother's movies are. I will never look at a wood chipper the same way again.

When someone mentioned an episode involving Shawn and Gus and the pregnant police chief, immediately I imagined her going into labor somewhere inconvenient (the ambulances can't get to her or whatever) and her grabbing Shawn in some painful manner and demanding, "Why didn't you see this coming?!" Fortunately, Gus will at least have some medical supplies on hand for samples and we know he's covered a few birthing centers and knows his Lamaze breathing techniques. He might even get to make a prediction-
'Shawn, I'm going to kill you later!' because somehow I am sure it will be Shawn's fault that they are in an inconvenient place with a pregnant woman with firearms training, who has gone into labor.

But she was not the pregnant sheiff in fargo, you all know that right? It was the mom from Malcom in the Middle. As for the plot line, that is easy she will get kidnapped while preggo, go into labor and Gus will deliver.

I knew she wasn't the police woman in Fargo, I was just explaining the reference to Fargo.

I was thinking that surely there was enough time between the pilot episode and making the next few that she would have had the baby already, too, so I guess the delivery will somehow play into a future episode.

So, I guess that while she is out for maternity leave and possible kidnapping, Lassiter will be in charge? Or will they bring in an interim interim police chief to hold down the fort till the interim police chief can return to work? Wouldn't that really burn Lassiter's butt if they brought in an interim interim police chief rather than just hand it over to him? He just might pop a blood vessel in his head.

No, Liv was right. Frances McDormand was the pregnant police chief in the movie Fargo, not Jane Kaczmarek from Malcolm in the Middle.

I am for the change. But it's always open to the possibility of the former Jr. Detective coming back. And they've made mention between the show and a blog entry on this website that it's claimed to be a) voluntary on the part of Lucinda and B) Lassiter directly transferred her.

It's up in the air, but I love the drama. Lassiter's denied shipping her off once in the show and explicitly explained she willingly transferred in his blog.

Here is what Lassiter said in his blog:

Quote:



I've recently gone through a partner transition. Det. Lucina Barry and I worked together less than a year but her decision to transfer out of the SBPD was hard on both of us. The fact that she wanted to be closer to her mother, who was recovering from an industrial accident, didn't make it any easier.




Maybe one day Lucinda might drop by and tell us all the real deal.

i also found that not only was the chief pregnant but if you look at the police department in the pilot it is much differen t from the one in the episodes

ie the front desk, halls, interrogation room

The reason the Police Chief is pregnant is because she is the Interim Chief of Police, which means she is only there for a short period of time, a.k.a. when she goes into labor, or they find a replacement chief.

But her role is good, so she'll probably still be on the show after the baby, just not working at the station.. lol

Or if she does get switched out completely, they'll bring in some new police chief thats meaner to Shawn and Gus, but also hates Lassiter.. thus making Shawn and Lassiter have a common enemy.
