'Monk' series finale poll: Should Adrian die?
I’m not going to pretend that I’m a religious viewer of Monk, but I’ve been sucked into enough marathons over the years to get a little annoyed any time a colleague (cough, Mr. Ausiello) suggests that Tony Shalhoub hasn’t deserved the Emmy love he’s received. Tonight’s series finale (USA, 9 p.m. ET) — which comes after a full-day marathon of the “Trudy Mythology” episodes, including “Mr. Monk and the End, Part I” at 8 p.m. — promises a resolution to the case of Monk’s murdered wife. In the clip below, we see that Adrian, who has been poisoned by the man who also ordered the hit on Trudy 12 years ago, doesn’t think he’ll live. Should the series end with Adrian and Trudy being reunited in death? Let’s take it to a vote.
