May 29, 2007: It's Tuesday Season 3, Episode 24

It wasn't the most exciting finale I've ever seen. It was subtle yet managed to surprise with a twist: House was left with no ducklings on his payroll. But even that move raised only my eyebrow and not my heart rate - as, say, last season's finale did. First of all, House fired Chase. Just when I started to like him. I blame Wilson. He's always buzzing in House's ear about this or that. Now it's about House and his fear of change. Next thing you know Chase has no job. Nice work, James. Then there was Marina (Mercedes Renard) and her mysterious illness. Roiling seas aside, Esteban ( Omar Avila)and Marina's desperate voyage from Cuba to New Jersey for treatment at the hands of Princeton-Plainsboro's foremost diagnostician resulted in a case that flatlined pretty quickly. After all the focus on losing Marina's medical records at sea, this didn't have an impact on her treatment. Then Esteban, the husband shown to be extremely concerned about the love of his life, would only raise a little hell (not a lot) when he thought her doctor was not doing as much as possible for his wife. I guess Esteban was tired from all that capsizing business.... The drama surrounding this couple was superficially touching. That scene of poor Esteban saying goodbye to his doomed wife was supposed to get you right there, but it was just a scene with a guy and his dying wife. We do have to thank Marina (and her unprecedented third heart artery) for the tip about coughing to maintain one's consciousness when the heart has stopped beating. Let's pause for a moment on poor Esteban because even though I was happy that Marina didn't actually die, I was distracted with thoughts of who was going to pay her medical bills. I mean they are refugees, right? I'm assuming that if they had better means, they could have afforded a better boat for escape. Speaking of escape, Foreman finally did. He got his long sought-after request from House to stay, but then Foreman's ever-growing ego kept him from accepting the offer. At this point it's: See ya, so long, buh-bye. After that, Cameron's quitting was uneventful. It's funny how, given their actions of late, Chase is the only one of the three that I want to stay, when not so long ago I thought he brought little to the table. I guess that is what change is all about. Unfortunately, I'm not convinced that much change is afoot. As cliff-hangers go, I'm not having palpitations wondering if the ducklings will be back in Season 4. I fully expect to see them and their lab coats neatly pressed and reporting for duty. Don't you? That's it for the season. We'll have all summer to ponder the fate of our doctors and who will return in the fall. Will Chase and Cameron still be together? Will Cuddy finally procreate? Will Foreman be even more full of himself? That remains to be seen. Until then, the doctor is out. Have a great summer, everyone! Find video from House in our Online Video Guide. show less
