Getting close to the end
20 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't normally write reviews for TV shows, but it is no big secret House is one of my all time favorite TV shows. That said I've never written a review for a House episode. I am sad. I know this is nearing the end of a great series. I am pleased to say that season 8 is now becoming right up there with the best of them though I was very critical early in season 8. And this episode, Chase, is by far the best episode of the season, a continuation of S8 Episode 11 Nobody's Fault.

Now that there may be only 6 to 8 episodes left for the show, for first time in the history of the series the complete focus was on a character other than House. Yes there have been episodes that the theme was geared towards a particular individual, like Taub or Forman or 13 (or Chase when he killed the dictator) but always the main gist was around House. This episode was so beautiful, shown from Chase's view and the conflicts within Chase. I am so happy they finally tribute his character so well.

I really hope they at least do something like this with Forman, the only other character left that like Chase has been there since the get go. I did not put in spoiler alerts so I won't go into detail on the story line, needless to say this was one of the best acted and well written episodes of the entire series. Bravo.
