Review on Season 3 finale

The finale of season 3 sees the emotional difficulties surrounding the main character of Adrian Monk, an ex-police officer who suffers from a serious amount of phobias. Monk who throughout the series has struggled to deal with his phobias and to connect with anyone, finally seems to connect to someone on a more emotional level. Monk bonds with a child who finds a finger of a kidnapped violinist, during the episode the apparent bonding between the two seems apparent and is emphasised when Monk decides to temporarily adopt him. Although many people believed Monk was not a suitable adopter due to his specific lifestyle, Monk relishes this personal relationship, one which he did not deem possible after losing his wife in the car bombing murder. However, Monk is left with an incredibly hard dilemma in the end of the episode, to sacrifice his own happiness and maybe his only chance of a real personal relationship for the child's well-being in the long term or to keep the child and to doom him to his own way of life (to live in fear and loneliness). This episode is very emotional and shows a side of Monk which has never really been shown before. Highly recommended for its strong morality and emotionally journey.
