I am personally going to miss Kutner, but I believe it was well played. Yes House is getting a little monotonous, and boring in parts. But it was a quickie that left me wanting more, just as any married man should. It was placed so that it was shocking and tragic. As long as House does not ponder it as one of his unfolding complex puzzles for the rest of the season it was smart on behalf of the writers.
To much of anything could be bad. So I say RIP Kutner now let us proceed to Huddy!
