While looking for someone Stottlemeyer is shot. They try to find the person and Monk has him but because of his condition he lets him go. He goes to Kroeger, who suggests that he try a new medication. He tries and his phobias are no more but he is no longer as observant as he was which makes him useless as a detective. Sharona tries to get him to stop taking them but he can't. Written by
