House gives Cuddy a very valuable, old medical tome, written by one of her M.D. ancestors as she, House and the team get ready to leave for a Trenton trauma site. On the flyleaf, House indicates the gift is for Cuddy and Lucus as a housewarming gift. House is surprised by her response to this gift. Meanwhile, in Trenton, a large crane operator lost control, colliding into a building and parking garage. A large joint firefighter, law enforcement, emergency physicians & other EMT rescue personnel from nearby hospitals deploy to scour the wreckage for any survivors. House hears noises coming up from the parking garage which is covered in rubble and has caved in at many points. When House cannot convince the firefighters to make more than a cursory investigation, stubbornly, House crawls down into the wreckage to investigate the noises with only a flashlight and his cane. When a hand reaches out to grab his cane, House finds a woman in her mid 30s, alive but with a leg pinned under the ... Written by LA-Lawyer

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: You want to dose the insulin here, in a non-hospital setting? That is insane! It's not worth it.
Dr. Gregory House: Really? 'Cause I think I'm the only one here who knows what a leg is worth. Fortunately *you're* not the one in charge.

Dr. Gregory House: And he know that I'd testify against him if Hanna sues for cutting a leg without exhausting every option.

I do hope this was a hallucination
15 June 2010 | by (New-Zealand) – See all my reviews

A great episode, no question about it. We see the emotional evolution and then devolution of House. He is facing a reality where being "House" is not acceptable anymore, and where logic and knowledge do not rule the world. His fragile emotional world collapsing, he can't even resort to the world of medical challenges where he believe he has the ultimate control, because that control is just imaginary and the harsh reality is setting in. And then, just as he is about to descend back into being House of seasons 3-4, we get the most surreal and ridiculous ending. House's life is an ongoing struggle within himself, it's a cyclical lifeline. And over the last few episodes we watched him descend into one of the deepest recesses on that graph. The ending of this episode either meant that we just witnessed House reach the bottom, or that a magic hand pulled him up by his hair onto the surface. I do hope it was the former - I (and I think the majority of House audience) am not a great believer in the magic hand. So for now, it's a 9/10. But should it turn out to be the magic hand, 5/10 would be more like it.
