Is House going political with this Donald Rumsfeld original? Nope. But in this episode, there are a couple of things we should expect other than the case of the week – which is awesome as well, by the way – more House (Hugh Laurie) and Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard) moments and more House and Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) moments. The three will be attending a medical conference somewhere so they spend a weekend away from the hospital. Things will go awry when House’s private investigator Lucas (Michael Weston) makes a surprise reappearance.
In a clip, in fact, we see Wilson convincing House to ask Cuddy out, but the genius is not too keen on the idea: “She’s not some floozy in a bar, she’s a floozy I work for.”
For the patient of the week on House, a teenage girl (Anna Attanasio) is brought to Princeton Plainsboro with severely swollen appendages after a wild night out. The girl appears to not be exactly honest with what happened, so the team must diagnose her as her condition worsens. Things get awry once again when she becomes unable to distinguish fact from fiction.
Additionally, we’ll see whether or not Chase will continue to self-destruct in the wake of his slightly murderous tendencies and his usually OK conscience. While he can readily shrug off this thing and put it behind him, we learned from the last episode that it was easier said than done. He also got drunk, by the way, and already we can see a very sad divorce proceedings in works, and all for something that he can’t tell Cameron.
