A tough episode to watch
26 August 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

House encounters a 9-year-old cancer victim who has other things going wrong. Even if he finds out what else is wrong with her, and fixes it, she still only has a short time to live. A gripping episode, and tough to watch. A procedure performed near the end, entailing the momentary exsanguination of the girl in order to track down a mysterious object, may very well be a real procedure but it is hair-raising to sit through. I would not recommend this episode for nonadults. In an amusing bit, Dr. Chase becomes the girl's object of adoration. The ending is quite touching. And House is more irritable and argumentative than ever.
