Coming off of a really poor season ending, I expected this to be the begining of the end of house. But it was actually a really good episode.
It was fairly obvious this season was going to start in prison, no where else for it to go and hope to be interesting in all honesty. No Cuddy/Wilson/or team was a bold move I thought. But one that paid off in spades. Giving House a new set of relationships/context for his actions was refereshing, even if it is destined not to last.
I hope they do not feel the need to rush the prison storyline for the sake of getting him back in the hospital. It was getting boring and bogged down last season and a break from it was a fantastic season opener.
Well done, I really didnt think the quality would return to house anytime soon. More like it!
