In the season opener, House solves a medical case by himself (hence, the episode title --- Alone). Well, alright, not completely by himself. He had help from Dr. Buffer..mwehehe. And I won't say who he really is, it will spoil the surprise. But I've got screen capture:
Anyway....for the most part, House and Wilson, to a great extent, did make the show still worth it.
House: What is El Fuego de l'Amore and why do you need ten of them?The "terrorist" did this:
Wilson: It's a...it's a telenovela. I'm learning Spanish.
House: Say "Adios". [deletes TiVo record]
Wilson: Are you erasing my TiVo? House, not the season finale!
House: I don't negotiate with terrorist.
Because House was too stubborn to take interviewees in to replace the three ducklings who left last season.
Meantime, they did have a medical case to solve. It's similar to this one. And yes, House successfully figured it all out. And yes, all by himself.... no thanks to Dr. Buffer.
But wouldn't you know it, I may actually miss not having CamForeChase around!
