*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Bravo to Hugh Laurie and Robert Sean Leonard. Hugh Laurie directed this one, which means we don't see quite as much of him. House taking a backseat is a bummer. But the direction is good. In my opinion, this is the best episode in a long time. We see depth from all the actors we hadn't necessarily seen before. The other episode directed by Laurie was "Lockdown," which was another of my favorites. But I've said before: Laurie is extremely talented. This kid is super cute, and the case has the potential to be interesting. The mother/doctor thing brings great tension and added problems. But with House out of the picture and the team working a case on their own, tension had to come from somewhere. Thank heaven it wasn't stirred up from personal crap between the team members. And to that end, this episode was incredibly enjoyable because there wasn't any personal crap between the team members. Probably, Adams is in it until the end of the season, which is the end of the series, and that is unfortunate. She brings the show down; she's dead weight. She was mildly interesting in S8.E1 as the jail doctor, but bringing her on as a regular was a bad decision. Her performance here was marginally better than in previous episodes, but not enough to consider her a contribution. House and Wilson continue to explore Wilson's cancer diagnosis. What great emotion from Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard)! Bravo! It is really nice to see the camaraderie between House and Wilson—it's been a while. Hugh Laurie and Robert Sean Leonard are friends off screen, and some of that translates on to the screen. They are good together, and too much of their time together lately has been spent in hostility or anger. And House is downright pleasant in this episode. He sacrifices himself and his own comfort to care for his friend. From administering a medicinal cocktail with the very real likelihood of killing Wilson, to putting together a slideshow that will make Wilson laugh and boost his mood—he was a friend, plain and simple. House the good guy has been out of the picture too much lately; it was very nice to see him return, even if the appearance may prove to be fleeting.
