Storyline

House gives Cuddy a valuable medical tome written by one of her M.D. ancestors as a housewarming gift for her and Lucas; House is surprised by her response. A large crane operator doing work in Trenton loses control, colliding into a building and parking garage. The team joins firefighters, law enforcement, physicians, EMTs and rescue personnel to scour the wreckage for survivors. House hears noises coming from the parking garage but he cannot convince firefighters to make more than a cursory investigation. House stubbornly crawls into the wreckage to investigate the noises; a hand grabs his cane, "Carrie" style. He finds a woman in her mid-30s alive, but trapped with a leg pinned under the wreckage. She does not want to be rescued if it means amputation; because of his leg, House both understands and advocates for her. But, as time passes, priorities change; and House is forced to re-evaluate his beliefs. Written by LA-Lawyer

Enough but just not enough
19 May 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

With all the hype building towards a season finale on a show that is teetering on the brink of a cancellation, the finale was a pleasant surprise.

Until now, all season finales have been intricate psychological puzzles with something the viewer would be engrossed in unraveling or stunned by the revelation. But this one tends to differ. With a crashed remains of a building as the backdrop House once more goes back to what he is used to doing best - diagnosing on the go. But with a difference - he is shown to be emotional for each diagnosis that he makes. The offhandedness that is characteristic of every action of his is missing, probably deliberately. It could have been a major clue for viewers to deduce the ending which was nowhere near what anybody could have been thinking.

In fact it is so nowhere near, that its reasoning can run to multiple discussions. But since news is around that the show is being renewed for another season, something close to a rational answer can be expected.

Other than the emotional puzzles, Hugh Laurie and Lisa Edelstein have surpassed themselves in the acting department along with the almost insane combinations of lighting and sets. Direction/Writing is once again splendid with symbolic references thrown throughout the episode.(look out for the walking stick analogy)

Hope the premiere of the next season brings the season finale to a better conclusion.
