Monk…I really don’t know what to think about this show. The second part of the season finale was just so…..so poetic and meaningful. I really don’t know if this is the end, but what a way to go if it is.
For those of you who don’t know, the—————————–NEVER MIND!!!!!!!!!! I just read that Monk is returning!!!!!!!!!!! It’s on the USA website!!!!!!
Okay, so now we know it’s a new beginning! The finale was wonderful. Monk can never truly end until he finds Trudy’s killer. Well, he found Trudy’s killer and the killer (the six finger man) was promptly killed off. It all has to do with Dale Biederbeck, AKA Dale the Whale. And he really is a whale…so utterly huge and amazingly gross. Well, viewers are led to believe that Dale actually orchestrated Trudy’s killing. If I remember correctly, the reason he had her killed was because she uncovered a story about him and was going to print it. (She was a newspaper reporter.) Monk has not been able to uncover evidence of this though. But he, in past episodes, put Dale behind bars for other reasons.
Now, we know that someone nicknamed "The Judge" is behind Trudy’s death. My sister thinks The Judge IS Dale the Whale, but I don’t think so. I think Dale knows who The Judge is and why Trudy was murdered, but Dale is truly evil.
Monk, in the season finale, overcame so many things. He ended up swimming, being dirty, so many things. Many may say it was out of character for Monk, but there was one line that made it all okay. When Monk met up with Stottlemeyer on the beach, Stottlemeyere said, "Not so bad for someone who can’t swim." Monk replied, "I was highly motivated." He overcame some of his fears because he had to. He just HAD to.
The other great part of the season finale was when he saved the governor. Now a quick flash back first. In the series premiere of Monk, the governor actually insisted that Monk be in on the case. Stottlemeyer didn’t want him there, but the governor insisted, so started Monk’s consulting career. So, come back to last week’s episode…Monk’s nightmare is coming true. Someone is going to die in a car bomb right in front of him. The captain and Disher were being arrested. Natalie was being restrained. Monk ran out of cover (he was still a wanted man at this time) and ran toward a car he knew had a bomb strapped to it. As he was running, he had a flash back of a nightmare he’d had earlier in the episode of him trying to run toward Trudy and save her from the car bomb, but he never moved, he just ran in place. He had to watch her blow up. But this time, Monk was able to save the governor from the car bomb.
He made progress. It was SO cool. Well…July will start lucky season 7 for Monk. I can’t wait!
