House back at Princeton‑Plainsboro! Inevitably, House would have made it back into the hospital with a team of doctors to bully around. “Transplant” serves as the bridge between prison episode and the rest of the season, and it’s generally a smooth ride, better than the stilted premiere at least. There’s nothing too big going on, as we’re introduced to Dr. Chi Park (Charlyne Yi), who’s seems quite innocent, and led through a normal case. I have no idea why, but Foreman is now Dean of Medicine, which will obviously be a large point of contention for House.
The show essentially resets itself at the end of the episode. House has his stuff back, his office back, his job back, and Wilson back. Yes, there are potentially snags in the way, but it’s looking good for him. At the end of the day, the writers like who House is and don’t want to change him. Viewers seem to like him and that’s enough. They probably couldn’t stand him in real life, but watching from from a television screen breaking rules and playing tricks is what people have come to enjoy.
