[Review] House - S07E18 - The Dig (slight spoilers)


Wow. The 150th episode of House delivered on so many levels. First of let's all welcome back Olivia Wilde as 13 to the mix. Her character was welcomed personally by House with a martini just outside of a correctional facility where she was held the last six month on drug charges.

The subsequent road trip House and 13 take together must have been the best and most intense I've ever seen Hugh Laurie and Olivia Wilde together. The facial expressions in every single scene together with constant looming "why was 13 in jail" plot was just fantastic. The revelations of why she actually was together with her catching up on everything from House's relationship with Cuddy and he subsequent marriage was just brillantly played by both. The emotions running wild (no pun intended) in 13 and the stereotypical non-emotional House together were intense to watch and worthy of an Emmy in my book.

The downside of having such a strong main plot obviously is that the side plots fall short. This episode had two side plots - one being the case of the week which was so weak I dont even remember what it was - only that 13 was the one solving it in the end via the telephone and thus exposing her to the rest of the team. The second side plot was Taub rekindling his marriage - or at least the sex part of his marriage causing some trouble in his room-maty relationship with Foreman. This is something I couldn't care less about in a normal House episode - so you can just imagine me wanting the show to switch back to the road trip whenever there were scenes that revolved around all this.

Thankfully the main plot was strong and worth watching right until the end which saw one of the most brillant and terrifying lines ever delivered on that show in House promising 13 to kill her. As to why he chose to promise to kill her: I will not spoil that for you. It's just to nice a storyline to not watch yourself. So what are you waiting for? Go watch "The Dig" now! It was just brillant.

  12. Watching House right now actually, it's kind of a repetitive series as every episode is composed of solving a different ailment...
