Can Wilson's heart take what is in House's head?
26 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the previous episode, Amber,Wilson's girlfriend and former student and foil of House, has been found to be in a coma in the hospital because of injuries she sustained in a bus crash - the same bus crash that House was in. House, though, had walked away from the crash and wound up in a strip bar, suffering from partial amnesia.

House has no memories of what happened leading up to the crash which can only lead to the question, what was Amber doing on the same bus as House in this strange part of town in the middle of the night? This is the question House must answer to get to the root of the problems that Amber is having in the hospital. She appears to be dying, and the answer as to why this is happening and how to help her is locked inside House's head.

Now, all through season four, Amber and House have displayed some not very well disguised sexual tension, even though they are passive aggressive adversaries - first because House fired her, second because she became Wilson's lover. So the doubts are there for both Wilson and House. Did House and Amber meet somewhere while Wilson was at work and sleep together prior to the crash? Does this mean that Amber was - consciously or subconsciously - using Wilson all along to both get and get to House? Watch and find out.

This is a great episode of House among many great episodes of House that made me realize the show did not need the original cast to continue on as an innovative and interesting series.
