house 5×22: house divided

Here are my thoughts about this amazing episode.

  • This was the first time I felt any glimmer of interest in Thirteen as a character.  Watching her and Foreman check out the strippers together was hilarious, and when she dug happily into the booze-flavored ice cream, I actually said out loud, “I love Thirteen.”  And then I had to stop and check whether I’d gone insane.  I hadn’t.  She actually was entertaining for once.
  • The scene where Chase turned on the kid’s cochlear implant was really striking, kudos to whoever came up with it.  It really made you feel how chaotic it must be to experience sound for the first time.
  • I am TOTALLY ON BOARD with the dead!Amber plotline.  House has been having hallucinations and dream sequences and near-death experiences since season one, so it seems perfectly natural at this point.  Her comments gave us real insight into how House’s brain worked… until the whole suddenly went from amusing to really creepy.
  • Bachelor party = FUNNIEST SCENE ON HOUSE EVAR, Y/Y?
  • Cuddy said to House, “Talk to me,” and he did.  Not the hallucination part, not yet, but still, OMG.
  • Promo for next week = aslkdjfalsdfjasodigu.  My brain just exploded.
