Storyline

Monk gets his badge back. But he learns that he will not be working with Stottlemeyer and can't have Natalie with him. On his first day, a cop dies and all signs led everyone to believe it's a suicide but Monk doesn't think so. And he raises questions about the cop which the other cops he works with don't want raised. But he continues to investigate while wondering if being a cop again is what he really wants.

Goofs

In the window washer scene, when Monk falls off the scaffold barely hanging on, his shirt is disheveled and untucked and you can see his back. Seconds later, when he is back in the scaffold, his shirt is 'miraculously' tucked in and remains tucked in for the rest of the scene. See more »

All that glitters...

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.
