House bursts into the exam room, where Cameron is just wrapping things up with a boy and his mother. No doubt she's just diagnosed the child incorrectly and he's heading home to die. He says he solved the case she gave him, and Doug is gearing up for Earth Day as we speak, taking no time to recover and hang out with his poor neglected family. Trauma only changes people who wanted to change before the trauma, House says. Cameron thinks House is now talking about Chase, but he says he's talking about her. Kumar's death reminded her of Poor Dead Husband, which is causing her to balk at the idea of another husband. And with that, House is sick of talking to Cameron so he wraps it up by saying "don't try to dump him by dumping cases on me." Cameron attempts to sound tearful and says she never wanted to dump Chase. House says that's right -- she wanted him to dump her. That way she can get out of the relationship and not feel guilty about it. Until she gets called out by her former boss. "You're out of reasons to avoid him. Kumar was a pretty dumb one to begin with," House says. That's as close to doing someone a solid as House ever gets, and Cameron seems to finally get it.
She appears in Chase's locker mirror as he's getting ready to leave. She apologizes for screwing up the vacation, and Chase apologizes for planning it in the first place. She finally tells him the truth, that she found the ring and was afraid he was proposing just because of what happened to Kumar. But now she's decided that she wants Chase to propose after all. Because now it's sort of on her terms, right? Cameron is a relationship control freak and needs to learn how to communicate with her partner. Chase still seems annoyed and sighs before walking towards Cameron ... and getting down on one knee. Aw, she may be a terrible girlfriend and this scene is kind of weird to see when you remember that the actors involved used to be engaged to each other but aren't anymore, but it's still sweet and it still made me smile.
