Review Quotes


This week, we get to see the hospital and House from Chase's perspective.  Tonight's episode opened with Chase in bed with a woman after a one night stand, bleeding from his stab wound.  He appears detached, indifferent.  Once in the hospital, Foreman suggests clinic hours to him as he needs to move on from the stabbing.  His first and only patient is Moira, a woman who is about to join a convent, but feels uncertain because she didn't get the calling. 

Chase and her bond throughout the episode over religion and just a general feeling of being lost.  Chase at the very least partially blames House for the stabbing and throughout the episode is questioned by House as to why, all the while Chase is becoming more and more attached to Moira. They end up sleeping together and Chase and Moira start making plans for their future, as Moira now says she won't join the nunnery.

Meanwhile, the rest of the team is coping in their own way with the stabbing.  Taub is taking self-defense classes, Park is trying to talk to anyone who will listen, and Adams is seeing a trauma counselor while House mocks everyone's own brand of dealing with a traumatic event. 

Moira ends up getting a terrible clot in her neck, Chase performs the surgery against everyone's better judgment, and she lives.  But only to tell Chase that she has changed her mind again, gotten the calling, and will become a nun.  House and Chase find some middle ground as well, and by the end of the episode, the two seem to be back on good terms.

Who played the nun in thi episode?


What was the song at the end of the program? Name of band?


Yes, Andi thank you for naming the song. And, I agree that last night's episode was probably the most beautiful- I thoroughly enjoyed it, & really hate that the show wasn't being cancelled...they really shouldn't have screwed with it so much...


yes if anyone knows the song at the end please enlighten me


This is possibly the most beautiful episode of House yet. Yes, Cuddy evoked emotion from House, but that was all negative. In episodes 11 and 12, a father-son relationship emerges b/w House and Chase. House doesn't want Chase to end up hurt like him and advises him to let go of the nun, showing that he is like a father to Chase, and when Chase really does this, he proves to be like a son to House. The two share a tacit nod which implies both are finally at peace with each other.


thanks andi it took me awhile to find it much appropriated such a good and relaxing song


Thank you Andi! That was a cool song, like many are on House.
