Prime Video Summary:

In the aftermath of Amber’s death, Wilson announces his resignation in the season premiere.

Notes:

  • The case of the week was… eh. Just feels very overdone. Did they have it back in the Season 4 episode where the guy fakes the diagnosis and gets fired?
  • And the “They also serve who only stand and wait” aspect of the patient and how it ties in with Thirteen wasn’t terribly interesting.
  • For that matter, Wilson calling out House wasn’t interesting in itself, either. But it did leave me wondering about how this season is going to be compared to other seasons. Previous ones have tried to show him as a suffering genius, simply depressed, but this sets him up as an unredeemable asshole. And I don’t know if there’s any way for the character to contradict that once it’s been put on the table.
  • But “Almost dying changes nothing. Dying changes everything.” was an amazing line.
