In between this episode and the last of the first half of this season news broke that the eighth season of Monk would be the show's last. As disappointing as that is it is probably best that the show leave the airwaves at a creative highpoint.
Getting to this episode, we received a good solid case and some good laughs to go along with. Monk's antics with the homeless were great and it is was entertaining to see his phobias once again become such a central part of the plot. Natalie and Stottlemeyer were amusing as well.
The whole religious aspect of this episode seemed kind of farfetched and ridiculous but anything that ends with a guilty pharmacist is good in my book.
