Goofs

House is shown detoxing from Vicodin overnight and appearing to be almost completely normal just 24 hours later. However in reality detoxing from opiates takes a lot longer. It depends on the person, the type and amount of opiates they were using, how long they had been using them, and what route they were taking them through are all factors, however it would take at least 7-10 days for someone taking Vicodin orally to get past the acute stage (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, insomnia, depression, anxiety, increased sensitivity to pain) of the withdrawals. While it is true that people who are I.V. opiate users have a shorter, but more intense, period of withdrawal, even they would take 3-5 days to get past the acute symptoms. See more »

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.
