Spoilers for "Birthmarks" Included!
This week's House brought up some interesting issues as this episode skirted away from digging further into House's new team's personal lives as the last episode did with Taub, and dug right into House's personal life - guess what! He kind of has one!
"Birthmarks" finally brought back the 'Houson' issue full-on, as since Wilson quit, we've gotten bits of Wilson here and there, but in those bits, only assurance that Wilson wasn't planning on returning - to the hospital or to House.
Okay, so really we knew Wilson wasn't going to be off the show and this moment of reconciliation had to happen, but I felt like it was really done right.
As Wilson dragged House to his dad's funeral, we got a little history of how Wilson and House became friends in the first place, plus an almost real House breakdown at the funeral, then a real Wilson breakdown as he put a big ol' bottle of liquor through the church's stain glass window!
It's what we've always loved about 'Houson' - they love each other at the core of it, but in a real way that never has those fuzzy friendship moments, just the occasional breakdown and reboot sessions that every real friendship needs.
I think this episode did justice to House and Wilson's friendship in the way it has always been, plus gave them a little more to build on.
So what did you think? Did you like this reunion for House and Wilson or were you hoping for something more or different?
