  • They lose a patient- cue tragic music- doctors bicker and eventually bond in a solemn final scene...

    This episode is notable for the fact that House fails to save the patient for the first time so far in the series. It is quite an emotional episode, watching the woman search for what turns out to be her dead family and realizing that she has been left all alone in the world. What is interesting is that Foreman at first dismissed her case, believing the worst of her, and his antipathy towards her is never fully explained- yet in the end, it is he who remains by her bedside, keeping a vigil as she dies. Wilson, who passionately championed her case, is conspicuously absent. What is good about this episode is the development of the interaction between Wilson and Foreman. The show is called House because he is the main character, but it enhances the show's dynamics to see the other characters interacting amongst themselves, and strengthens it overall.
