Father
14 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Awesome episode. House has a new case about a girl who is looking for biological parents in china. And House father is dead so his mom calls up someone in his hospital to come to the funeral even if he doesn't want to.

This episode finally restores the balance in universe. House is extremely mischievous and anyone in that "someone's" place will be extremely furious by his actions. Wilson was right he acts like a 5 year old boy.

Funeral episode was game changer. House was at his usual best. He made sure there is no laughter lost. It is not an episode where you will cry because you are touched. It is because something good happened.

What everyone was clamouring in last few episodes from the start of the season is now back on its path. We as viewers can now have a sign of relief and laugh out loud.

Thoroughly enjoyed the performance of House and rest of the team. It is a definite watch.

Once you watch the episode you will be pleasantly surprised. No more awkward or sentimental moments. All is well with house.

Don't miss.
