Storyline

When a man who was scheduled to be executed is killed before his execution. Monk goes to the prison to help. However, Monk is so turned off by how filthy the prison is and upon hearing that he would have been dead anyway tries to leave. But Dale "The Whale" Biderbeck whose murder plot Monk solved, who is also in the same prison calls him and tells him that he is a suspect but Monk knows that the motive that he is suspected of is not motive enough for him to kill. So he asks Monk to solve the case in exchange for giving Monk information on his wife's murder. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Goofs

There are a number of unrealistic situations portrayed inside the prison. An inmate scheduled to be executed in less than an hour would not be left so unattended as to require the trustee to yell for help when he went into distress, or to allow the inmate and trustee to exchange objects. A chronic rule-breaker like Spyder Rudner, who had just "put a guy's head through a wall," would not have gotten just one day in solitary confinement with no other loss of privileges. Lody and the other Nazis would not be allowed to wear swastika lapel pins. See more »
