Nicole Vasquez was murdered and Monk was on the case. Making things more complicated, he was also pulled into a case where mayor candidate Warren St. Claire was supposedly shot at. He thinks the two are connected in some way, and he's desperate to find out.
This is the first episode, and I didn't know what to expect. I knew that Tony Shalhoub was a great actor, and I wanted to watch him again. My thinking proved positive when I watched Monk. Monk is so keen to details that he can even solve a case in a matter of minutes, in his first time at the crime scene. And he does just that while winning our hearts in "Mr. Monk and the Candidate"
