After 7 years, 8 seasons and 123 episodes, Adrian Monk is finally going to close the case which started it all: who is behind the death of his beloved wife, Trudy. With the case also goes the series, Monk, but now is not the time to lament over what will be, as there are still two phobia-inducing episodes left. At least now we have a promo to go with it and possibly some clues as to who’s behind it the crime.

The penultimate episode, titled “Mr. Monk and the End” comes with a description so short that there’s no chance of giving anything away.

Monk is called to a crime at the location where he first heard the news of his wife’s murder and begins the most important investigation of his life.

Although, what the description doesn’t tell you is that this episode also includes more guest stars than an episode of Fantasy Island. Some familiar faces you can expect to see will be:

Mr. Starship Trooper himself, Casper Van Dien.

The reason why I now have to drink Pinot Noir, Virginia Madsen.

The always energy efficient, Ed Begley Jr.

Head coach of the Minnesota State University Screaming Eagles, Craig T. Nelson.

As with any Trudy-centric episode, you can also expect to see Mrs. Jan Levinson-Gould, Melora Hardin, as face of Monk’s deceased wife.

Enough talk of episodic descriptions, guest starts and Fantasy Island. Let’s get to the promo.

While this promo is almost as short as the description, it still gives fans a sense of what to expect from this episode. It appears as if those behind Trudy’s death are back with Adrian in their target sights and from the scene in the doctor’s office, it seems as if they’ve succeeded.

Since I’m such a nice person, here are some photos to supplement the short promo.

As any series comes to an end, fans always hope to have all their questions answered. While Monk might not have as many mysteries as Lost, there are still enough that I will go away upset if some are not answered.

What’s on the top of my list? Well…

What’s the gift that Trudy left Monk?

What about you? What did you think about the promo? Are you looking forward to the finale? Do you think this will be a proper farewell to the world’s greatest detective? What questions do you want answered?

Since the episode doesn’t air until Friday, there’s more than enough time to speculate. So, let’s speculate away.

Don’t forget to catch Monk Friday @ 9PM on USA

  1. This show wouldn’t have lasted 1 year on NBC,,, ;-)

  2. @790

    With the way things are going, most of the shows on NBC aren’t going to last 1 year.

    ZING, Zing, zing…

  3. i can’t wait… and yet i dread it at the same time. I love monk so wish it would never end!

  4. i love this show !!!!! to bad they took it off tv after season 3 :-( stupid Australian tv

  5. Monk was another one of those “event” shows at my house, kinda like 24.

    Everything came to a halt when Monk was on, and it was such a treat to watch.

    Friday nights won’t be the same without Mr. Monk. :(

  6. While I had heard of the show since its debut, I really didn’t become a viewer until 2005. From then on, though, I was hooked. It helped fill the void on Friday nights left by the demise of TGIF earlier in the decade.

    Oh, and it looks like we will find out what was in that gift box. ;-)

  7. If anyone knows who does the vocals on the series finale promo could you please e-mail me. thankx

  8. Sad to see it go. I can’t say i’m the biggest dedicated fan, but I’ve seen all the episodes that play a role in the overall story and from time to time tune in on the ones that are just episodic. Always enjoyed the show.

    Also I would like to add he is the second greatest detective Worlds greatest will always be Batman lol ; )

  9. The song used in the final Monk promos — “Time to Go” is by Keane. (I found it on iTunes.)

  10. OMG!!!!! I just watched it, and i cant WAIT for the series finale!!! I want to hurry up and see it, but i don want it to end, PLUS i wanna se spoilers for it but im scared too!!!! OMG!!!!

  11. Part One has aired, but I’m practically counting the hours until Part Two. I will be very upset if any of the characters die. I will, however, make a prediction.

    Stottlemeyer retires and moves away with TK. Randy takes a job in New York and marries Sharona. Dr. Bell will stay in business but will begin treating Ambrose. Julie goes off to college. Natalie marries her new doctor/seaman/boyfriend, but not before she finds out Mitch isn’t dead! Mitch has been hiding (OK, that last one is far-fetched, but it would create a great plot twist).

    As for Adrian, the case will be solved, and he will become a criminal justice professor who writes books on how he sees crimes. He’ll move away and lock all of Trudy’s things away because he’s going to find out Trudy was somehow involved in something criminal, which lead to her death in the first place(OK, more far-fetched stuff, but we’re all guessing here).

  12. Randy Newman, the same guy who sings the Monk theme song, sang the song at the end of the finale. It was so sad.

  13. I’ll miss MONK. Except for a few swear words. It was a show that you could allow your kids to watch. It was like a modern day Sherlock Holmes.
