Storyline

An outlet store's highly industrious employee is killed when a TV falls on her. Monk and the police show up, they learn that they were called by the store's head of security, who was once Monk's partner on the force who was fired because he was suspected of stealing evidence which led to a criminal's release who would later kill some cops. He claims he didn't do it. He tells them that the woman had been getting death threats which he shows them. Monk decides not to pursue it any further. But some time later Monk takes another look at the letters and notices something odd about so he decides that his partner might be right so he gives Monk a job at the store. But Monk still doesn't believe his claim of his innocence. When Monk gets in line to be the store's employee of the month, he is attacked. He learns that the victim was the previous constant employee of the month. He thinks her death might have to do someone wanting to be the employee of the month. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Fine episode showing what Monk was like before wife's death
21 August 2008 | by (Washington, D.C. USA) – See all my reviews

This episode is special because of the character of Joe Christie, Monk's last police partner before Monk's wife's death, and the admiration Christie has for Monk despite the fact that Monk, Stottlemeyer, and the others came to think that Christie was a "bad" cop, getting Christie fired, so that Christie ends up a security guard in the department store that is the setting for this episode. I am new to the Monk show this year (2008) so I did not see this episode "in order," but it seems to me that Christie should have been a recurring character. The way the actor plays him is very warm and affecting and you get the sense that he might well be intended to re-appear in later episodes -- but he does not. However, the actor got a regular part on another series (Veronica Mars) that same year, so perhaps what happened is that he had to choose between series and chose the Mars series.
