Did You Know?


In the first scene where House is playing video games in the coma patient's room, he picks up the drink from the coma patient's hand, and places it back there. You can clearly see the patient's thumb and arm moving. Trivia: The game House plays at the beginning of the episode is "Ninja Gaiden II" for the Xbox 360. See more »


At the beginning of the episode, House is shown supposedly playing an Xbox 360 in Coma Guy's room. The control pad is shown to have a blinking green light, which means that the controller is either not connected to an Xbox, or has failed to connect. If House were actually playing the console, the light on the controller would be a single continuous green light. See more »

22 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wilson announces his resignation and House spends the rest of the episode calling him an idiot. Cuddy plays therapist and makes House and Wilson sit in her office to hash things out. It doesn't work, of course. There's the usual sick patient of the week, but it doesn't hold a candle to the drama of Wilson's imminent departure. Lots of references to the departed Amber, maybe a few too many. Plus Amber's departure at the end of last season was overblown melodrama that is best forgotten. Not a particularly strong episode, all things considered. Methinks House has run its course. The next few weeks will tell.
