Last nights episode was good and it actually felt like a hostage situation, well at least until House had the gun and then again after the guy got the gun back. I was beginning to think there was going to be more bloodshed. It did show that House will not stop until he finds out what is wrong--he HAS to slove the puzzle. As it showed at the end when he found the man could now breathe. And he did it almost at Thirteens expense, which I think he truely was concerned for her. And what is with Chase not even staying, Forman wouldn't help but that was after House had the gun so that makes sense because then the situation was different in that House could have stopped the whole thing.
