Episode Summary

House tells Dr. Nolan about the case of a woman who had amnesia and a disease, and how he had to help solve both mysteries.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

No results found.
  • As House himself said "It's crap!"

    In this episode of House, the following happens. This episode of House was a real disappointment and was completely different from most of the other episodes. I have watched House since it started, and I have to admit that after 10 minutes I wanted to turn this episode off, but I stuck with it.

    The episode mostly focuses on House in therapy. The only interesting part was when House asked the therapist when was he going to be happy. And apart from that, for me, this episode was a massive failure and a waste of time. Knowing that next week's finale episode is suppose to be EPIC, will keep be tuned in, at least for now.moreless
  • Just didn't find it interesting

    This was a painful one to watch, not due to angst but due to it being so dull. It was clever how they interwove the doctor's room with the action, but the story was so plodding. Hope it improves for next week as my wife walked out this time and is ready to quit. Did it really take a PhD to work out who House loves? No, of course not. And the amnesia plot was pointless and pushed too far to the background for me to care. Hope the series ends up on a high, and can't wait for Season 7.moreless
  • One of the best if not the best episode in a long time

    It was good to see Dr. Nolan again. I was wondering if House was still going to see him.

    Why was House entering the hospital through the ER?

    It makes sense that Wilson would want House to move out. I don't understand why House was still living with Wilson in the first place. Nolan wanted him to live with someone right after he got out so he didn't relapse. It has been awhile since then.

    How did Alvie know where House lived? He was pretty funny trying to help House with the case though.

    I'm not sure if I agree with Taub from last episode that House was trying to help his marriage. I feel like he was just trying to mess with Taub. However, this week House showed that he can help people. He helped the husband save his marriage by telling him to go back to courting his wife. Then he helped Alvie by setting up the trial and faking the test results.

    I find it hard to believe that Alvie would just leave a note for House without actually saying good bye. He really liked House.

    I had been waiting for a therapy session since Broken. They kind of glossed over everything during that episode and it was good to see Nolan delve into House's mind. I did disagree with Nolan about House using diagnoses based on his personal life that the past is bad. House uses the symptoms to come up with a diagnosis, not his personal life.

    I hated how Nolan came to the conclusion that Cuddy was the reason for House's recent problems. Lucas and Cuddy were thinking about moving in together way back when Cuddy was going to buy the loft but Wilson bought it out from under her. I am actually surprised they haven't moved in together since then because it has been months. I hardly see that causing all of House's problems. He had to know it was going to happen eventually considering it almost happened months earlier. I could understand House's problems being caused by the fact everyone was moving on and being happy- Lucas/Cuddy, Wilson/Sam, and even Alvie. However, to put it all on Cuddy is ridiculous. Huddy hadn't been mentioned much this whole season (which was great) but now the last two episodes it has been mentioned. The way it is looking, I wouldn't be surprised if Cuddy ends up dumping Lucas next episode to be with House and I am going to hate it.

    It will be interesting to see if House moves back in with Wilson or if he stays in his apartment.

    I guess the writers remembered how successful Three Stories was and tried to replicate it. It definitely was one of the best if not the best episode this season. I just wouldn't put it up there with Three Stories or some of the other best episodes. I think the reason it is rated so high is because we haven't had many good episodes and this episode comes and it is so much better than all the others and people forget how good some of the episodes in the first 3 seasons were.moreless
  • Maybe one of my favorites from the entire series

    I really liked this episode. After not having seen about half of the season because I thought the episodes I had been seeing were kinda "meh", this was definitely a good episode I thought, and I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what was going to happen throughout the whole time. I also really liked the way it ended with House getting mad at Nolan. I wonder if Nolan will return in the next episode or even during the next season. I also liked the return of Alfie, but I liked him better in Broken. Overall grade- A+moreless
  • Very interesting buildup of episode

    Ok. This episode had quite interesting build up. I mean, the whole therapy thing. House sitting and talking his week and that doctor trying to figure out why he is telling those things and the way they build the scenes - using "chars" as "puppets" and flipping and re-winding story if needed. That was probably the best part of this episode. Artisticly I liked it.

    The story was another matter. I did not liked it. It did not had any deeper meaning and it did not lead us nowhere. We learned nothing new. That Puerto Rico guy was great but he left.. just episodic visit, so nothing really important there too.

    The case was just a backstory and the whole "week" thing felt like a backstory. So the question remains: what was the point? I did not get it.moreless

    • Nolan: And a minute ago, he was skulking around in the background like some sort of manipulative Iago.
      Referencing the villain in Shakespeare's play Othello. Iago is Othello's adviser, and schemes to bring down Othello by turning him against his underlings and causing him to believe that his wife Desdemona has been unfaithful.
