However, things get complicated when the submarine heads off on a mission... with Natalie and Monk still on board. Monk must battle his phobias and stay focused to catch a murderer who is well within their reach. Written by

There are two problems with Monk and Natalie being trapped inside the ballast tank. First, the ballast tanks are not accessible from the inside of a submarine. The other problem is that the ballast tanks are only used to take the sub above or below water; once below the surface, the ballast tanks are full. In order to dive or ascend, the submarine moves devices called "dive planes" up or down. See more
