All that glitters...
21 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the title suggests, Monk has his gold shield back and is hot on the trail of a cop killer. The episode starts off with the capture of a serial killer, but unfortunately Monk is on desk duty at the time, answering the tip line. It is only after a young cop is shot to death that Monk finds himself back in the saddle, as it were. Meanwhile, Natalie takes a job with a concert promoter, and is desperately unhappy to be separated from her old boss. Interestingly enough, we do not hear a word about the captain's new wife, whom he married at the conclusion of last week's episode. On the other hand, we get to see plenty of the captain and Lieut. "Dizzy" Disher in action. That's good enough for me. The final two episodes will be taken up with Trudy's killer.
