    What an amazing episode. Hugh Laurie had to have won an Emmy, Golden Globe, whatever else there is with his performance tonight. Easily the best episode of House ever, even better than Three Stories, and maybe the best episode on a TV show I've seen in a long, long time.

    I agree. I will admit that I teared up, but they were rough manly tears that scratched my cheek! :)

    I didn't even realize how sad I got. That is how much this episode sucked me in.

    This was perhaps the most depressing hour of (fictional) television that I've ever watched.

    Helluva episode.

    Yeah, now I like Amber, too. A little late, though.

    Did anybody else notice in last week's episode that Dr. Cuddy used Thirteen's last name twice? Still haven't heard a first name.

    huh. i guess i'm the only one disappointed. i thought the whole "wake her up so you can tell her she's dead" mechanism was a cheap way of tugging at the heartstrings.

    My heartstrings were untugged while Amber was awakened, but when Wilson got home and read the note from her, a nice chipper "goin' to get House!", yeah, it got dusty in here.

    Wow...

    So, uh... Yeah, wow...

    Intense.

    So, now, is that it? It seemed very season finale-ey, but it was also only the 16th episode of the season. There should be more episodes. Or is the season shorter because the writer's strike caused it to get off to a late start? Well, if so, I'm sure glad they crammed all their best work into one last hour. Next season is going to be interesting. I'm most curious about Wilson and House's relationship.

    Yeah, I think the writers' strike cut it short, as with many shows. (Not the start, IIRC -- it's the middle that's missing.)

    So, Wilson is going to hate him? Well, I guess I can understand that (the whole Amber-wouldn't-have-been-there-if-not-for-House thing), but it's not rational. It was an accident -- that could've happened anywhere, and the accident wasn't House's fault -- plus the pills, which were Amber's fault. Whereas, what House is responsible for, is risking his own life to try and save hers. He failed, but damn, he should get a lot of credit for that.

    And with that-House has become my favorite show. That hit me like a ton of bricks.

    And yes, Wilson will eventually forgive House. He has to. He needs House as much as House needs him-they don't have anyone else but each other!

    If House turns into a nicer guy because of all this, Amber's note - "I went to PICK UP House" - becomes pretty profound.

    I suspect Wilson will get over it pretty quickly. First, he was dealing at the end there with the possibility that he would lose both his lover and then his best friend - I imagine he was rooting like hell that his best friend would survive even though he had some mixed emotions. Second, for much of this episode he was wondering whether House was screwing around with Amber behind his back. Now he knows that's not true, removing that bit of tension between them.

    That note was the perfect end to the season.

    For those curious, the song in the end montage was "Passing Afternoon" by Iron & Wine.

    Someone else did the Massive Attack (tear drop) song in the middle of the show.

    Would Amber have died from the meds anyway? Or was it combination of the meds and the drink and the accident?

    The meds and the accident. Her organs were damaged and couldn't process the meds correctly, so she was poisoned, and dialysis wouldn't have helped due to the type of medication.

    And yeah, that was a really sad hour of TV :(

    She needed her kidney to process the meds, something happened to her kidney in the crash.. did they take it out or do a transplant?? so then the body couldn't work with the meds.

    I also thought it was kind of uplifting a little bit with the dialog between House and Amber in the white bus. I kind of took some of the sting away.

    I wonder how much longer they will drag the old three along for next season.

    Talking about the old three, was it my imagination, or was Cameron only in that final bar scene? You would think that if they found ways to artificially insert her character in other episodes, they'd do it again for the season finale...

    The flu medication would not have been fatal if Amber hadn't been in the crash and lost both her kidneys.
