**Warning** Spoiler Alert
If you haven't watched the season finale and are planning to, don't read any further.
I watched the season finale of Monk this weekend, and wow, what a cliff hanger. Is Adrian Monk dead? My first thought was that it was all staged, but I can't imagine him voluntarily falling into a river. But would he be willing to do that in order to find out who murdered Trudy? Of course, if it was a set up, then Captain Stottlemeyer would have been in on it, but he seemed shocked at the events that transpired. Is he a good enough actor to sell that to the rest of the police that were there? I can't believe I have to wait until next season to get to the bottom of this.
