|Season 5||Season 7|
A lady hears a scream from the house across the street during her phone call. She walks over to the house and finds the door unlocked. She makes her way through the house until she finds Mr. Davis dead, duct taped to a chair. She then sees his wife through the glass door slumped facedown in the backyard.
14 years later, Mr. Monk is testifying for a parole board concerning the release of Mr. Barton. Mr. Monk tells the board that Mr. Barton should never be released. However, a man with the Innocence Project comes in. When a member of the parole board asks what the matter is, Mr. Barton's lawyer says they are dropping the appeal because new DNA evidence has surfaced, and Mr. Barton will be released soon. Mr. Monk and Mr. Barton share a look.
In the office, Stottlemeyer and Disher prepare for the reporters by prepping questions. Disher says that Mr. Barton will be suing for wrongful imprisonment. Stottlemeyer worries about Mr. Monk's self-esteem since he was the detective in charge of the case 14 years ago.
