Apparently I wasn't paying close enough attention to last week's season finale of Monk, as it turned out to be part 1 of a 2 part episode. This week we had the conclusion of the episode and I couldn't be happier that I don't have to wait until next year to find out what happened. No, Adrian Monk didn't die, as I'm sure you were all aware. Next season would have been a little difficult to write if he had died. We did take one small step closer to finding out who killed his wife Trudy. All in all a good solid episode and I can't wait for next season.
