Recap: Season 4 Episode 16

Wilson's Heart: Season Finale

Watch and Download the Full Episode of House MD
We had more dream sequences tonight. More of the wierdness that prevailed in the first half of the season finale.

The crux of the episode revolved around trying to find out what was wrong with Amber, Wilson's girlfriend. In the bus accident, she had some serious damage to her kidneys. Then she had heart problems, which resulted in her going in to V-tach.

Dr. House finally agreed to let them prod around in his brain to activate the hypothalmus, and help him remember everything that happened. We see him go back to the bar that Amber went to pick him up from. He orders himself a drink, and a Cosmopolitan for her, and orders her to drink. "Drink yours, or I'll drink them both," he demands.

He notes that she sneezed, and it seems like it is just a cold. Nothing serious, so at this point, it seems to be no help.

He tries to order another round, but Amber will have none of it. She prods him out the door, but she has to run back in, because good old Dr. House didn't pay the tab. He gets on the fateful bus. He thinks he ditched Amber, but she presents his cane to him and tells him that he forgot something.

She sits on the bus, and sneezes again. She asks for a tissue, and House mentions that he has a sleeve. Two of them, in fact. He finally notices she's taking some kind of pills, and he realizes that they were the source of the problem. She has some kind of poisoning, that I wasn't clear what the technical name was.

Wilson says they can just put her on dialysis and everything will be fine, but House points out that this poisoning binds with the proteins. She's doomed.

Wilson softly whispers to Amber what happened to her. She says, "the flu pills. I'm dead." Wilson says I love you and she loves him too.

Skip ahead to the end. Wilson is laying there in the hospital bed with Amber. She's ready to die. He wants a few minutes more, but she says, we will always want just a few minutes more. He asks why she isn't angry, and she says she doesn't want that to be the last thing she feels. Wilson kisses her, and turns off the machines. He's torn in anguish.

House is sitting on a bus with Amber. Amber is dead. He asks if he's dead too. She says no. They talk a bit. House says that there's no pain there. He doesn't want to go back. Too bad. It's not his time yet.

Cuddy is curled up on the chair next to House. She is asking him to blink if he understands her. She breathes a sigh of relief, and curls back up on the chair. Wilson pops in, sees that House is OK and heads home.

He sees a note on the empty bed that says, "sorry I'm not here. I went to pick up House." Wilson cries himself to sleep. Grieving.
