Storyline

Monk is in denial about Sharona leaving him. But Kroeger convinces him to accept the fact that she is gone and that he needs to find a new assistant. So he tries to interview candidates but none are to his liking. Natalie Teeger, a single mom shows up. She says a man broke into her home and she killed him. While the police choose not to arrest her, they think that it was just a random act. But she doesn't think so, that's why she came to Monk. Monk looks around and thinks the man was trying to steal her daughter's goldfish. That's when she joins him and helps him. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Enter Natalie
1 July 2009 | by (Topeka,Kansas,USA) – See all my reviews

Traylor Howard's bow as Natalie Teeger,the next assistant for everybody's favorite obsessive-compulsive,joy-killing former police detective-turned consultant,is an interesting and oddly disarming ep where a at that time still assistant-free Adrian helps out our future assistant to the detective who kills an burglar breaking into her place when she fears for her life and the life of her daughter. The break-in is to steal a...fish. And,as per many of these episodes,it just gets weirder from there.

A good and unusual episode,highlighting a new turn in Adrian's world to come.
