MR. MONK IS THE BEST MAN (#816)
EPISODE PREMIERE: November 13, 2009
Monk must figure out who's making anonymous threats against Capt. Stottlemeyer and his fiancée on the eve of their wedding.
Monk and Natalie are at police headquarters when Capt. Stottlemeyer’s girlfriend, T.K. Jensen, shows up to meet him for their anniversary. Monk observes Stottlemeyer and deduces – for everyone to hear -- that the captain is going to propose to T.K. that night! Stottlemeyer is annoyed that Monk spilled the beans, and offers to propose on the spot. T.K. won’t let him, but her emotional reaction makes it clear that her answer will be yes.
Months later, Stottlemeyer calls Monk to a grisly crime scene. A man’s severely burned body has been found in a park. The victim was shot first, then the body was burned using alcohol as an accelerant. All that remains for identification is the victim’s boot.
