  • This one was sort of like a puzzle, more so than most of the other episodes.

    There are a few episodes in this series that start out a little differently, where the patient has a symptoms before the one that sends them to the hospital. These are often very cool ones too because it shows just how smart House is. Every other doctor says its uncureable and in these episodes are wrong about their diagnoses. It feels great when the lead character gets it right!

    I said this episode was more of a puzzle because House visited the patient to listen to her speak. Everything she said was sort of made sense if you really thought about it. I rather like how the writers pointed out that she made a rational decision to send her son to social services.
