Maybe following Fidelity I didn't feel this episode was as good, or perhaps it's just that the extra characters are out of whack. A bit. Not that I live in the US but I'd hate to imagine teachers would be like this, that mothers run secret drug screenings on their kids or that an amoured 82 year old chooses to live the way she does, in the end. Though that's a sweet enough ending, I guess. Somewhat anti-climatic I felt, without giving too much away.
The comparisons drawn on House and Foreman were timely, though. We were possibly beginning to see Foreman as too much by the book, and without much character development in the past 8 eps.
