Advanced review of House episode “Nobody’s Fault” from someone who has seen the episode (Fox must be promoting this episode very heavily with advanced screeners for the media). Nothing spoilery about the incident, just a general impression of the episode. The writer calls it the best House episode since “Help Me”. The episode opens with a shot of the messy patient room we saw on the promo, moving on to House meeting Cofield for the disciplinary hearing, Cofield saying “I’ll be deciding your fate today”, and cut to credit. This part is interesting:
I don’t really want to spoil the episode for you (yes, I’m that evil), but what unfolds examines the hyper-competitive methods of House’s diagnostic team as each member recounts the event leading up to the incident in the patient room. I can’t (well, I could, but I won’t) tell you what happens, but I can tell you that it’s very serious with ramifications extending beyond this episode and perhaps through the remainder of the season. The events of “Nobody’s Fault” weigh very heavily on House’s heart and conscience, and are not likely to disappear by next episode.
I never thought House has any problem feeling guilty about things (he does have a conscience); his problem is letting the people he’s wronged know he feels guilty and apologizing to them.
