Is Trudy Really Dead?
29 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sitting in a cafeteria, Natalie suddenly spots a woman who is a dead-ringer for Monk's long-dead wife Trudy. She listens in on the woman's conversation with an elderly man and - incredibly - it appears indeed to be her. She claims to have faked her death to be in some witness protection-type situation to spare her husband because she and he would have been murdered, blah, blah, blah.

Monk, meanwhile, seems to be making great progress and his shrink, Dr. Kroger, is going to recommended he be reinstated somewhat on the force. However, when all this stuff hits the fan, Monk, of course is shook up pretty badly. He goes to the cemetery and then is relieved, convinced she's dead and the woman must be an impostor. Is she or isn't she, and how does Monk track her down and solve this dilemma?

Obviously, this is an emotional episode for all parties concerned and especially Monk.
