Once again an amazing episode.
The first time I watched this episode, I didn’t think too much of it. But now after re-watching it several times, I realize how amazing this episode is, it is defiantly one of my top episodes of season 1.
Through out this whole episode Hugh's acting was fabulous, absolutely flawless.
The pain and emotions he portrayed through out this episode took the viewer on an emotional rollercoaster, I found myself on the verge of tears more then once.
The scene where House smashed his hand was beyond amazing, you could really see and feel the pain he was going through at that moment, this is one of the points where I nearly cried, I just couldn’t watch the pain. And once he smashed it, the relief on his face was so genuine I would swear on my life that Hugh was actually going through all this. Once again props to him.
The first time I watched the episode, when he spilled the pills in front of him, I was sure he will take one. Guess I wasn't aware yet how far he will go to prove he's right. House never seizes to amaze me, time after time.
When the father punched House he deserved it, and that was the first and only time I felt that way, against House. But then again you could see the pain he was in, and I could tell he wanted that punch, because with it came some relief from the pain.
When Cameron finally relented and said that House was correct was just so fantastic for the dynamics of the two. As were all the scenes between House/Cuddy/Wilson. They were perfectly in character and a joy to watch.
"It takes away my pain" that line did have me in tears. I felt so bad for House I was hurt on the inside. Yet another amazing scene for an amazing episode.
I loved how in the end we find out it was Wilson's idea, I thought that was brilliant. More fantastic stuff.
