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

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.

Good way of ending the season
18 May 2010 | by (Istanbul,TR) – See all my reviews

I've just watched this episode and I can say that a good (and surprising) ending. First of all, a multitasking House (finding a survivor under the building while trying to solve the problem of crane operator) was same with the same annoying, cool but inspiring way. As the building collapsed, House was collapsing in his own life while Cuddy and Wilson is moving on. There was no gigs like using electro shock to find out what happened to Wilson's girlfriend or solving a case while hallucinating because of his illness and Viacoding, etc. But, he is sharp enough to solve the puzzle of the survivor girl and crane operator he was collapsing while trying to solve the puzzle of his life. By the way, the final of the episode was makes this episode one of the best episode of House M.D.

While I was watching, I thought that new season will be a return to Season 4 or 5 but if this show will continue a new show is waiting for us. This will be interesting to watch. A new Dr. House with a new life. I don't want give any spoiler as possible but last 3 minutes of this episode is nearly astonishing ans shocking.
