Monk is smitten with an attractive former dancer and when she's accused of murder, he agrees to help her, even though all the evidence points to her, and continues searching... even after she confesses to the crime.
Did You Know?
The Eastern European land Zemenia, where Leyla and the butcher are supposed to come from, does not exist. The language Leyla is speaking sometimes is Polish. The Zemenian flag you can see in some scenes is patterned on the flag of Croatia but in other colors an with some little modifications. Additionally, the symbol on Leyla's hat pin and box contains the Ukrainian national symbol. The Zemenian language Mr. Monk is trying to speak (with the dictionary) is an invented language. See more
When Mr. Monk and Leyla are in the restaurant, and they're talking about the song, their hands/arms significantly change position from shot to shot. See more
Were there any witnesses?
Randy was there so, no, there weren't any witnesses.
