I don’t watch Monk, but Neil and the girls do. (Why in the world would I watch a show about someone who has the same neuroses as me? :)) I do know a little about the storyline, though. He has spent the past several seasons trying to figure out who murdered his wife.
Here is my prediction: Monk’s wife is not dead. She entered the Witness Protection Program. Monk will fake his death in the final episode and join her. The two will then go on to live happily ever after.
I will tune in Friday night for the series finale to see if I am correct. I’ll bring the tissues, because if the series finale of Monk is anything like the series finale of Gilmore Girls, Neil and the girls are gonna need the whole box.
