Wilson's heart at the cost of House's Head or vice versa
13 September 2014 | by sam_avbSee all my reviews

I agree with all the comments that have been written before me. It is such a fantastic episode that made me so emotional and involved with the characters. This episode was very touching and heart breaking. I was moved to tears while I was watching it and even after the ending. It is so hard not to relate to House or Amber. Wilson was fantastic too. He was so natural. But I hated him for a moment. And you will know which moment it was once you see this episode. House is not a monster or a jerk. He is the REAL friend who will do anything for friendship. What he does? again watch this fantastic episode. This episode will highlight why House is not just House but he is more human than any one ever imagined before in previous episodes. Actions define a person. There are lot of moments in House series where he displays those wonderful qualities. He doesn't have time for idiots. House proves what a wonderful and adorable person he is. Wilson on the other hand shows why we can hate him too. And why he will always be second to House in heart. I just hope I don't get to see some uncomfortable episodes in next season between Wilson and House. I really don't want this TV series to take the predictable path making it a downhill. This was one of the fantastic and brilliant sequel to the previous one. House head is clean, Wilson's heart isn't. Once you watch the episode you will understand everything. It is a must-watch finale. Terrific final episode for the season 4.
