If you have not yet watched the final episode of Monk called Mr. Monk and the end Part 2 then do not read any farther, as this entry does contain spoilers if you haven’t seen it. Come back after you’ve watched it though 🙂

ok! Onto the blog post, which again may contain spoilers, you are warned.

Well, tonight marks the end of an era! Tonight, the final part of the two part series finale aired. This show will be missed. It’s one of the few shows still on the air, that I have looked forward to watching each week for many years. The episode managed to tie up all the loose-ends, which I must admit, I did doubt they would be able to tie it all up in a nice little package with a pretty bow, but they did!

One of the things I missed about the episode was the monk classic “Here’s what happened” followed by a black and white scene of the crime taking place. However just because the show didn’t have that didn’t mean the show was any less spectacular. Also, it would have been nice if they tied the whale into the series finale a wee bit more. However I loved every minute of it, and for the most part was kept on the edge of my seat. 

The only thing I would have changed about the episode, would have been the  TAIL ending. When Monk is going into the crime scene, I would have had it where Molly was the victim. I mean, they didn’t show who the victim was, so I still can in my mind imagine that’s who it was. I know, a lot of people probably are thinking “What?? That’s horrible! Why would you want that kind of ending??” And the answer is simple, it puts Monk back full circle. Also, that ending would have had a surprise factor, it would have pulled at peoples heart strings. It would be an episode to remember and would say “Hey, Monk lives a life thats full of danger. Not everything in his world has a fairy tale ending.” Also, it would leave the possiblity open for a reunion movie.

All in all however it was a great finale for a truly fantastic television series.
