In an attempt to discover the common denominator between the eleven victims of a serial killer, Monk links them all to a jury trial six years ago in which a handyman fell off the roof of a wealthy homeowner's pool house. Meanwhile, Sharona finds that dating the deputy mayor can have many benefits but in his anxiety to make a statement to the press, the twelfth juror is mistaken as a suspect in the killings, possibly ruining the deputy's reputation.

Did You Know?


As originally written, this episode reintroduced a character from the pilot, Deputy Mayor Sheldon Burger, but was apparently rewritten with a new character, Kenny Shale (played by Jerry Levine). Possibly Rob LaBelle, who played Sheldon Burger in the pilot, was unavailable. In any case, there's little similarity between the two characters. Jerry Levine previously directed the episode "Mr. Monk and the Sleeping Suspect." See more »
