Review - House Season 7 Episode 18 The Dig

The return of 13! Normally, I wouldn't be too excited about 13 (aside from her looks), but her reintroduction shakes things up, as she and House take a road trip while the team solves the case by themselves. 13 and House play off each other nicely as they devise the perfect spud gun and drive around, and towards the end of the episode, we learn that 13 was in prison because she had to euthanize her brother, reminding us of the large cloud hanging over her head.

The case wasn't at the forefront of the episode, but I, like Masters, thought it was cool that there was so much junk inside the house. I don't find mounds of junk interesting by themselves, but compared to the usual houses the team breaks into, it was a fun change.

Taub and his ex-wife are at it again... really? This seems like the kind of thing that would be a running gag on a comedy, Taub getting caught with his ex every episode with the laugh track running, but the writers want this to be really, really serious. Well, it isn't--it's just bad.

Score: 8.8/10
