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. James Wilson: You having fun down there?
Dr. Gregory House: Lots. Every time Cuddy leans over to a patient, it's another opportunity for a down blouse nipple slip.

I do hope this was a hallucination
15 June 2010 | by AlienByChoiceSee all my reviews

A great episode, no question about it. We see the emotional evolution and then devolution of House. He is facing a reality where being "House" is not acceptable anymore, and where logic and knowledge do not rule the world. His fragile emotional world collapsing, he can't even resort to the world of medical challenges where he believe he has the ultimate control, because that control is just imaginary and the harsh reality is setting in. And then, just as he is about to descend back into being House of seasons 3-4, we get the most surreal and ridiculous ending. House's life is an ongoing struggle within himself, it's a cyclical lifeline. And over the last few episodes we watched him descend into one of the deepest recesses on that graph. The ending of this episode either meant that we just witnessed House reach the bottom, or that a magic hand pulled him up by his hair onto the surface. I do hope it was the former - I (and I think the majority of House audience) am not a great believer in the magic hand. So for now, it's a 9/10. But should it turn out to be the magic hand, 5/10 would be more like it.
