Best episode of House so far!
12 May 2009 | by (Wichita, KS) – See all my reviews

Wow... for the first 45 minutes or so, you wouldn't have been able to tell this was a season finale. It was a rather standard episode, if a bit interesting. The last 15 minutes, however, blew me away. I went from working at my computer and paying just enough attention not to miss what was going on with the case and side-story, to sitting - literally - on the edge of my seat, hands over my mouth, stunned, staring at my TV. This episodes doesn't so much wrap up loose ends as unravel everything you thought was going on over the last season, leaving me gob-smacked, wanted to stand and applaud at the same time. I don't want to give even anything close to spoilers,so I'll leave it at that. If you've been getting bored with the series, trust me, this episode will leave you begging for Season 6 to start.
