House Season Finale

I've often said that I've loved the show House MD, and particularly, their tastes in music when picking the soundtrack. Last night was the Season finale, which I think was one of the best episodes in the entire show yet. (There are some spoilers here)
From the beginning, when House replaced his entire team, I didn't really like Amber, and was happy that she wasn't picked for the team. But since she's started going out with Wilson, she's become more than tolerable, and her sparring with House was something that was really interesting. This little story arc was far more powerful and different than some of the other ones.
Last night's episode, when we found that she was in the accident, and that there was nothing that they could do, the last act of the show was possibly the most emotional one on there, especially when Wilson turned off the bypass. Bon Iver's Re: Stacks was the absolute perfect song that they could work in there, and hearing Jose Gonzalez's cover of the theme song, Teardrop, was fantastic as well. And, to cap it off, with Iron and Wine's Passing Afternoon, I think we hit the jackpot with songs.
After that last scene, I'll be interested to see what happens next season between House and Wilson.

Passing Afternoon - Iron & Wine
Re: Stacks - Bon Iver
Teardrop - José González
