Objective Me: Wow this was a good episode and kudos to the writers for keeping House in-character even though they knew it would piss off the fans by breaking up House/Cuddy.
Subjective Me: Why? Why? Why? Meh. I liked House/Cuddy. I am back to only watching this show for the wonderful Wilson. Everyone else just exists to highlight his awesomeness.
I was nervous when I heard about this whole surreal, different genre thing they had planned. However, after the first ten minutes, I was really enjoying the episode as a normal main-character-in-possible-life/death-situation and less focus on case episode. Then the first dream sequence happened. The sitcom was funny. The zombie one was horrifying – there is a reason I don’t watch horror films. The Western was … okay? Ditto 50s household. The musical one was good and trippy ……. I get the whole surreal dream thing but I don’t get why House/Cuddy were dreaming in different genres. It was just to give the writers the chance to do this artistic exploration they wanted to do and I didn’t really get it ….. at least that was what I felt last night when I watched this episode. This morning I am resolved just to accept that it happened. It definitely turned out better than I feared.
I loved Cuddy/sister scenes, Wilson/Cuddy scenes (basically all Wilson scenes), Cuddy/Chase and as to the ending? Yes it was very in-character for House but I like to pretend that he could change and had changed for Cuddy and I liked not having to deal with his addiction. *sigh*. Someone wake me up next time Wilson has a starring role.
