  • Cuddy takes some time to bond with her new daughter

    In this episode of House, the following happens. When a wife and her son return home to pick up hockey stick, they find their husband/father in the garage trying to kill himself. His name is Jeff. The case of Jeff is soon brought to House by Cameron. He is suffering with pain all over his body. Cuddy has named her foster daughter, who she later hopes to adopt, Rachel. Soon Jeff's son starts experiencing symptoms like his father. But House soon realises that the son is faking it, so that his father can try to kill himself. Cuddy has a home inspection, which she passes and so she can continue to look after Rachel as her foster mother.
    After a few miss-diagnoses Jeff is finally diagnosed with Epilepsy. We learn that on the drug trail, 13 is on the placebo and not the real drug. At the end of the episode, Cuddy goes to see Cameron. She asks her to take over her job for a while, whilst she stays at home with the baby for a little while longer.
