All seasons have a weak link. This was it. Nothing really NEW was ongoing. More of a continuation of relationship issues (Foreman and Taub) and new ones
emerging (Masters and Chase) (she obviously is disgistued but curious about him). I don;t know the Time line--but figuring out just what disorder the patient exposed to just about every toxin around would have seemed way too simple. It would take WEEKS of testing to eliminate all the possibilies Hosue ruled out in 40 minutes. I have never been very enthusiastic about Cuddy-House (too syrupy for my caustic House nature) and this episode only added more thick maple goo. not very impressed with this offering. House Licks a Vicodin? He doesn;t take one/ WHY>? Again .the most overlooked and unanswered question of this series "WHY isn;t House in PAIN anymore? Oh he is..but he overcomes it? LOL COme on..he was seeing dead people a year ago. he needed injections of Morphine in his leg. Someone just doesn;t want to TALK about PAIN anymore on the show.
