Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: How long does he have?
Walter: Two, three days. He's being deposed in connection with that federal racketeering case, and they're afraid they're gonna lose him before they get what they need. They're not letting anybody else near him.

That's Powerful
14 February 2014 | by (NJ, United States) – See all my reviews

I don't think there are any spoilers but there always could be.

This was a good episode-- especially good. I think that they wanted the season premiere to be a good one and I think they succeeded.

The episode plot ties in with the overall storyline of the entire series- - the one about Trudy-- and that's always a nice thing.

Also, there's a very powerful moment at the end which I don't want to ruin for anyone, but it's worth seeing.

They also work in some stuff related to Monk's issue with his phobias, this time the problem being coping with life in NYC.

But really the ending is what made it an above-average show.
