  • It was great to have Cameron and Chase back into the mix. The former is an excellent character. What an ending too.

    10
    I really enjoyed this episode because having Cameron back was a great move. I liked how people were dealing with Kutners death but it wasn't being shoved down our throats. The case was interesting enough but for some reason I just didn't like the guy, he didn't seem too nice to me...at first I thought Cameron was related to him or something. But it ended up her secret was that she didn't want Chase to purpose because of the Kutner suicide.



    I like how House and Cameron are together, they seem to get and know each other...but it's not really obvious. Finally Chase proposes to Cameron after she asks him too. A very sweet scene played very well by Jennifer Morrison. It was ending too nicely and suddenly House sees Amber...I loved how she said 'you're definitely not losing it now' that was genius. It was also funny seeing Cuddy finding out if Cameron still likes House...and the diet thing with Wilson was good too. So a really good one.moreless
  • What a twist...(spoilers)

    10
    I was fortunate enough not to see spoilers for this episode (long ago, when I first watched it), and I didn't see the twist at the end coming. Amber's halluncination caught be completely off guard.



    The whole episode was excellent- it was nice seeing Cameron again, and actually watching her do doctor stuff! I liked her and Chase's little storyline- it was probably the most we have seen of them since Season 3, and I am very grateful to that.



    The patient was an arse, and very annoying, but vaguelly interesting. Nevertheless, like earlier Season's, this episode finally delivered a fairly weak patient storyline with good drama and humour. Wilson and House, my favourite pairing, were at their very best, and I loved the lesson Wilson taught him. Cuddy marking her territory was also amusing, although personally, I have been more interested in Cameron's love interest than Cuddy's- I prefered it when Cuddy and House just use to clash, rather than be love interests. It made for a fairly duff storyline earlier this Season.



    Nevertheless, this episode delivered fully, and House beginning to unravel was an amazing plot twist-credit to the writers.moreless
  • Another good one

    In this episode of House, the following happens. At a protest, one of the protesters collapses, and can't stand up and so he is taken to the hospital, and soon though Cameron the case is passed onto House and his team. But by doing this favour, Cameron has to postpone a getaway with Chase, with doesn't go down well with Chase. And so, since she passed on the case, House makes Cameron help out on the case by performing some of the procedures. Soon Doug, the patient's wife turns up at the hospital, to see how he is. We soon learn that the team didn't know he was married and that he didn't tell his wife that he was in hospital, she found out after reading his emails, and finding the referral to the hospital.

    We also learn that he has a 4 year old son with his wife. We soon learn that Cameron is avoiding Chase, because she learnt that he is going to ask her to marry him, after she found the ring hidden in one of his drawers. She admits to House that she doesn't want to marry him, at least not right now. Since Cameron won't tell Chase what the problem is, he breaks up with her. The team soon learn that Doug is ill due to a rose's thorn, which has caused all of his symptoms. That same day Cameron realises that she needs to tell Chase the truth. So she does so and Chase proposes to her and she says yes. As the episode ends, we see that House can see Amber (who is dead).moreless

    Cameron and Chase get more screen time in this episode, which I thought was a very welcome addition to the show. I hope they continue to get a decent ammount of screen time with the team now down to four members, I think they could add a lot to the show with a simple 5-10 minutes of airtime an epsiode. Cuddy and House are on a one-way train to a finale kiss / cliffhanger with them being together it looks like. Cuddys sole part in this episode was making sure Cameron wasn't trying to get back with House and House is starting (if he hasnt all ready) begun to figure it out. The Wilson / House portion of the episode was better then I thought it was going to be at the beginning. Wilson tests House to try and get him back on his game - though we find out that Amber is the one who is still haunting House, not the death of Cutner.moreless
  • Here comes mommy…I mean Cameron!

    9.5
    Finally an episode that brings Cameron and Chase together, no more "Foreteen" (they haven't mention anything about Huntington Disease or their stressed relationship in the last 5 episodes) The medical case was pretty lame but the soap opera was "top notch", in 42 minutes we had Wilson's doing pranks to a confuse end insecure House; Cuddy marking her territory against Cuddy and everybody running away from "Bossy Cameron" (so that one coming!) very touchy scene with Chase and Cameron in the locker room giving the viewers a sense of closure to an open storyline since 2007, plus the "I see dead people" angle in the last minute between Amber and House (Characters that look great on scene)….is a must watch, very fun TV!moreless

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Dr. Cameron: Olandt from Philly General wants me to get a patient in to see House.
      Dr. Chase: So?
      Dr. Cameron: I owe him a favor. He's taken about a dozen of my referrals over the last year.
      Dr. Chase: I meant so that's five seconds to hand House the file, 30 for him to question your real motives, a minute for witty comments comparing the length of your legs to Thirteen's... plenty of time left over for the shore.

    • Dr. Foreman: The only kind of mothering House wants involves a bullwhip, leather diapers, and a credit card.

    • Thirteen: I guess we'll just continue to twiddle our thumbs.
      House: God, I hope that's an euphemism.
      Dr. Cameron: How am I supposed to do a lumbar puncture on a patient with intractable hiccups?
      House: I'm trying to figure out what that could be a euphemism for.

    • House: Who eats kale? It's so bland, it doesn't even taste like kale.

    • House: Stuff you haven't eaten just proves you haven't eaten it.
      Dr. Wilson: You were hoping for evidence of stuff I have eaten? First door on the right.

    • House: I lost my mojo.
      Dr. Wilson: Have you retraced your steps? Does your cleaning lady check your pockets before...?

    • House: (trying a differential) Balance organs, nerves, lungs, bones, heart.
      Dr. Wilson: Things you use to make bratwurst.

    • House: (to Wilson) You manipulative bitch.

    • House: He loves a tree in Oregon more than he loves you. But he can't have sex with it. Unless it's that slutty oak outside Portland.

    • House: People only change after trauma, if they wanted to change before the trauma. Or if they've watched too many Afterschool Specials.
