While treated for light lesions received in a motorcycle accident in Middletown, House proves ER Dr. Kurtz wrong twice about another ER patient: bike accident victim Lee. He reveals that Lee is neither brain dead nor received his brain injury from the crash but the other way around. Lee anxiously hears everything but loses the ability to communicate with his eyelid movements because of a brain biopsy. Taub hopes to convince House to cancel his ill-considered resignation. Wilson jousts with House about why he was in Middletown, while both fear their secrets may be discovered. Written by KGF Vissers

Somehow familiar....
1 April 2009 | by mondtagskindSee all my reviews

True, it is really a good episode. But why do I not lose the feeling the writer and the director watched "Le Scaphandre et le papillon" ("The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" --> Okay, it is not quite the same, as some aspects of communication differ from the mentioned film. Nevertheless it is interesting to watch an episode of "House, M.D." from a point of view, as if you have never seen any other episode before (a few minutes in: "These guys are friends?"). You can observe how the main characters appear to outsiders and get to know them from another angle. And there is reason to believe, that this episode might be the start of some changes to come. I'm curious. :)
