Episode Summary

Thanks to that pesky Y2K bug, an automated Cold War era Russian submarine wakes up off the coast of Nova Scotia and starts taking a look around. After being fired upon by drunken fratboys, it torpedoes their sailboat and decides World War III has begun, so it heads for it's target, New York City. The Agency is hot on it's trail and Monk enlists the aid of an old friend of his in the Russian State Security Service, Lara. With her help they determine who built the sleeper-sub, and they head to Moscow to interrogate him. Meanwhile, the sub makes a call to a deep-cover Russian agent posing as a tavern owner in Maine, and he travels to sub to become it's back-up pilot. The agents obtain and transmit the deactivation code but the sleeper decides it's all a trick and continues on toward NYC bent on leveling it with nuclear missiles. But Echo-7 can't just be blown up, as if it's attacked it will automatically launch on the closest target, Rhode Island. So it's up to Monk and Lara to board it, while Holiday keeps US Naval Command from jumping the gun.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Echo-7's periscope changes color each time it's seen. For example, first it's black, then next time it appears it's bright copper.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Brubeck: The Z-Fin Submersible holds two men, able to mate with all known classes of submarines. Resource Management has been telling me that it can couple undetected with any moving body.
        Holiday: Ha, sorta like Monk.

    • NOTES (3)

      • While it has only been hinted at before, it's confirmed here that the American office of the Agency is headquartered under New York City.

      • It's revealed here that there are thousands of Russian agents, or "sleepers", living in the USA and they are brainwashed into thinking they're just ordinary joes. All of them think they are from Kansas, and as well they all are members of the Elks.

      • Brubeck, the agents boss, gets a first name in this episode, Roan. This is Irish and thus makes sense, as his surname is of Irish origin as well.
