I've pretty much been of the opinion this show jumped a while back when House went back to being an ass and Braugher left. I thought it had a chance to go a new direction and pretty much dropped the ball. Throw in the ridiculous notion of Cuddy dating the PI...bleh. But, I did tune in this week and I liked the Wilson-centric show. He IS always a doormat and they really faced that down this episode. He got mad at House, and learned a desperately needed lesson the hard way (losing a lobe of his liver). I'd like to say he'll toughen up for the future...but, based on the House "change" it is unlikely.
