Preview of "Last Resort" Episode of House

TV Tonight: House


If last week's episode of House felt a little like a placeholder that might just be because tonight's episode is such a doozy. The reason: a gunman — played by Emmy winner Zeljko Ivanek — finds his way to PPH, demanding to know why he's ill. As House producer Katie Jacobs explained a while back, it's an episode all about the frustration and indignity of suffering with an undiagnosed disease.

It's such a big story, it will go on longer than normal: This episode is scheduled to run till 9:07 p.m., with Fringe airing immediately after (and also running long, till 10:07 p.m.). DVR users, take note.

House often does big episodes well (see also: the final two episodes of last season, especially the finale), so I'm curious to see the repercussions of "Last Resort." It seems like Thirteen will be a big part of things, as she offers to make a major sacrifice for the sake of the patient. To check out a promo for the episode, plus the suspenseful first three minutes, just read more.
