If you were reading the television recommendations in the “What to Watch” section of Entertainment Weekly last week, you could have had the last episode of Monk ruined for you.
The December 4th issue of EW leaked a big spoiler about Trudy having a daughter and described the series finale this way:
Monk concludes eight seasons on the air just as fans would want. He solves the 15-year whodunit behind his wife Trudy’s murder and finds something new to obsess over: namely, her lost daughter. It’s not very satisfying, as it’s near impossible for any show to wind up a series-long mystery in under an hour without sacrificing emotion and making us ask, “That’s it?” But it’s sweet, and the snaky guest star who turns out to be the villain is very, very salty.

What do you think? Did you read the EW review before seeing the episode? Would you have been upset if you had known about Trudy’s daughter ahead of time?
