Pretty typical episode, in and of itself. The patient storyline was interesting, but unremarkable for House. The "2nd-in-command" subplot was entertaining, but unremarkable for House. The "green card" subplot was interesting, but unremarkable for House. All in all, it was a pretty average episode.
I'm really writing this to respond to everybody else's reviews. Guys (and I'm fairly certain that at least most of you are guys), don't you think you're overreacting a little? When you look at it logically, what exactly happened? *spoiler* A patient, who was making a really decent living in a career that was directly linked to having low testosterone levels, and whose marriage immediately started to suffer after having testosterone, made a choice to prioritize his career and his marriage over the possibility of health issues down the line.
Was he wrong to think that having higher testosterone would jeopardize his career and/or his marriage? I'm inclined to think he'd know the answer to that better than anybody else.
Was he wrong to prioritize his career and/or his marriage over his health? Well, that's a judgement call, largely dependent on your own priorities.
Was it strange/poorly written that somebody might prioritize his career and/or his marriage over his health? No. Not at all. People do that all the time.
