I absolutely LOVED this episode for the first half, but I just knew the episode was going to rip my heart out and step on it halfway through by having everything fall apart for Monk yet again. It's so painful watching knowing that we will never see Monk be happy for long. Any time he's happy, something horrible will happen that makes everything bad again. In this case, it was Monk acting surprisingly out-of-character in accusing the old lady of the crime, of course with the standard stuff like cutting everyone off when they try to correct him and being proven wrong shortly thereafter. After that point I was just sitting around waiting to see what excuse they come up with to make sure this character isn't recurring. She ends up moving away. Why couldn't she be recurring for a few episodes? The show is going to be over in like one and a half seasons anyway.
Oh well, at least there are a few episodes that end on a definite high-note. Those are always good to watch.
