    Don't forget everyone, the season premiere of House is tonight from 8 - 10. Seems like it will be a great episode!

    If nothing else, I'd love to see Stephen Fry back on Bones. Booth building Fry's bbq and the shows after with Fry guesting, were so good.

    Since I missed the first hour and a half dealing with Sears, anyone care to recap?

    Well, basically, House has tried various ways of dealing with living in the psychiatric ward, including pulling a One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest. :) It's been awesome so far!

    Wait, House is hospitalized? On psych ward? I've missed a lot of this show, haven't I. Could someone please very briefly bring me up to speed?

    House checked himself into a psychiatric hospital on last season's finale. He started having hallucinations, imagining that Amber was following him around and talking to him, he then hallucinated that Kutner was with him also. In the season finale last year he hallucinated that he and Cuddy made love when they didn't. House finally realized that his hallucinations were effecting his work and harming the patients so he had Wilson drive him to the hospital.

    I have it on DVR. I can't wait to watch it. It's been crazy around here with all the flooding and continuing rain. We're ok, but the areas surrounding us have been hit hard. I was able to watch a little DWTS, but House will have to wait until I can sit down and enjoy it alone.

    How did Kutner die? And thanks, judiz for the recap! Is House hallucinating due to his addiction or something else?

    Kutner committed suicide. Presumably, House is hallucinating due to his addiction. But at this point we cannot be sure. So we'll see! ;)

    Just watched my recording of tonight's episode. That was intense! I was skeptical when I read the episode description, but it worked really well.

    Oh no! I liked Kutner. They are getting rid of all of my favorite characters, first CTB and now Kutner. Who's next, House???
    :drama: But of course precious 13 and precious Cameron are still alive and well. How's that Huntington's coming along?

    Why did he kill himself? :(

    That was never entirely clear (IIRC). His parents were murdered when he was younger, and that may have affected his overall psychological state, but he had seemed fine up until the episode when he did it. Rumor has it he just wanted to go work with Obama. ;)

    Yeah, I saw him in something Obama-related.

    Great premiere!

    Hugh Laurie is awesome. I can't believe he still doesn't have an Emmy.

    Loved it! I was totally engaged the whole episode. I thought they did a great job of slowly bringing House around to realizing he needed to get better... at least, I think he realizes it! Given all the times in the past he's faked cooperation, I was skeptical until the very end.

    I thought it was apropos he left on a bus.... remember, he and Amber were on a bus the night she was (turned out to be) fatally injured? Was anyone else afraid that Amber was going to appear on the bus, meaning his hallucination was back? I was relieved that didn't happen!

    I also wonder if he'll stay vicodin-free! Oh, and I loved his doctor, loved the interaction between them.

    And yes, Hugh Laurie has been totally :wuzrobbed by the Emmy awards...

    I kept waiting for Amber to show up on the bus with him in that last scene.

    Me too, I'm glad she didn't... House needs to get back to the hospital.

    Ah. Hugh Laurie + Andre Braugher + Franka Potente = :swoon:

    I really enjoyed the episode, despite being a very periodic House viewer.

    Plus Lin-Manuel Miranda (whom I didn't even recognize at first)! One heck of a cast.

    Anyone else think the one Nurse or Doctor or whatever she was looked A LOT like Cut Throat Bitch?

    I LOVED this episode, one of the best House has done in a while.

    I actually thought that young'ish female doctor looked a lot like Cameron.

    I have to watch this again before next week's episode!

    Andre Braugher needs to somehow get hired on by Cuddy. I need more of him and House!

    The episode was great, when suspending disbelief. (Sure, two catatonic patients, one who hasn't spoken in 10 years, will suddenly both come out of their states by one small action.....SUUUURRE). But with disbelief out the window, it was awesome, and the cast was indeed amazing!
