Monk is desperate to keep the parking garage where Trudy was murdered so many years ago from being demolished for a playground which has huge citywide support. He thinks he has a councilwoman behind his efforts but when she suddenly vanishes, he must deal with a ditsy assistant to the councilwoman. When a vacationing couple turn up dead, Monk begins to think their murders have to do with the missing councilwoman. But do they? And is Tudy's place of murder a rightful reason to stop a good community development project for neighborhood children? Written by

Monk lobbies to keep a parking garage intact that the city wants to convert to a playground. The reason: it's where Monk's wife was murdered 11 years before. He needs to make certain a sympathetic councilwoman votes against the playground, but she mysteriously vanishes and it is up to her newly hired assistant to stand in for the missing lady and cast the deciding vote to keep the garage intact. Only problem is, the assistant is a ditz and Monk must sweet-talk her into doing his bidding. A vacationing couple is found murdered early in the episode and Monk decides their fate is intertwined with that of the missing councilwoman. The killer is revealed way too early. Otherwise, a tricky and bittersweet episode. And a final goodbye to Trudy, or at least I hope so. Eleven years (seven in reality) of this is enough. Time for Mr. Monk to find a new wife.
