Dead man?
9 August 2008 | by ctomvelu-1See all my reviews

The captain has killed Monk, or has he? Monk is actually hiding out in Nevada, working at a car wash while the captain puts together a case against the renegade sheriff (Scott Glenn) from the previous episode. Meanwhile, Natalie is preparing Monk's funeral. As with the previous episode, which was the first of a two-parter, this lacks the humor and creativity of a typical Monk episode. It is riddled with movie clichés, in fact. But it does have a highly charged moment or two when Natalie discovers that her boss is very much alive. I would not bother to see it just for that, but if you are a MONK compactest, nothing is going to stop you, anyhow. All in all, a very weak finale to the sixth season.
