Episode Discussion Post 8x21 "Holding On"

Dr. Taub: "You can't just give up on Wilson. You know he needs you, you know he's making an impossible choice. He just doesn't want to live a life in pain..."

House: "Life is pain! I wake up every morning I'm in pain! I go to work in pain! You know how many times I've thought about giving up? How many times I've thought about ending it?

Holding On is an 8th season episode of House which first aired on May 14, 2012. Former Princeton-Plainsboro colleague Thirteen (Olivia Wilde) returns in an all-new episode; she's there both to provide support to Wilson and to confront House about his behavior.

The team takes on the case of Derrick (guest star Skylar Astin), a 19-year-old college student who had a mysterious nose bleed during cheerleading practice, and discovers that his health issues are likely both physiological and psychological. Possibly suffering from schizophrenia, Derrick claims to hear his deceased brother’s voice in his head. Wilson becomes resigned to his fate, but House does not. Meanwhile, Foreman tries a different approach with House. All this results in House showing atypical behavior, even for him.
