House M.D. 6.09 Wilson (2009)

Wilson treats a friend (pooh-poohed by House) and former patient, Tucker, who suddenly develops paralysis of his arm. House bets it’s a return of cancer but Wilson insists it’s not.


Generally, all Wilson episodes are cool and this is no exception. The committed change of focus was refreshing as the episode was very much Wilson with House riding in and out on various patients. There was a moment where the balance of House’s personality looked to be tipped into selfish horrid (the series’ biggest danger) but it produces a welcome pay-off. This also raises an intriguing dilemma for a doctor when the power to help somebody will cost them personally, will or should they pay that price?

This House M.D. episode contains unpleasant scenes.
