Jesus was in House!!!
27 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was seriously displeased with this episode for several reasons. I agree with everyone else that this episode simply made House's character seem a lot more compassionate than he has ever been in the shows' history ... and that's a problem. The reason people watch this show is because they do not want to watch Grey's Anatomy. House is not supposed to be a soap opera star, instead; he is supposed to be a lovable misanthrope. This is the shows' dynamic. Don't mess with it, for goodness sake!

Additionally, and mostly, I was entirely disappointed with the old hobo who Cameron befriends. I am also surprised that no one else has mentioned the fact that the shows' writer wanted to make a not-so-subtle Jesus reference. The man has promised his "father" that he will "die in pain and alone" and that he needs Cameron to "remember him," he freaks her out by talking about something that he couldn't know about (Cameron's dead husband) ... why? What was the purpose of this section in the episode. It was incredibly short to begin with. I suppose it had something to do with the metaphysical conversation that House was having with the rape victim. But was it really an intricate plot line that they couldn't have done without? Personally, I thought it added a whole lot more camp to an already incredibly campy episode.

Oh, and what's the deal with the rape victim using the fact that she was raped to her benefit so many times? If she really didn't want to talk about it, why does she keep bringing it up. She must have used the specific phrase, "I was RAPED," fifteen times in the episode, and always to manipulate House into talking with her some more. If she's already at that stage in the recuperating process, she REALLY doesn't need to be in the hospital. Apparently her psychosis wouldn't require much time to heal if she were that unfeeling.

All in all, a really bad episode of House ... but it was still House. I still enjoyed seeing the few times the writers allowed Hugh to be who the character really is. I hope whoever wrote this particular episode was fired, and we can move on to bigger and better episodes.
