While driving a car with her husband Sean, the pregnant Naomi Randolph collapses and is moved to House's hospital. Edward Vogler is forcing the dismissal of House, pressing the board with his investment of one hundred million dollars in the hospital. The team finds that Naomi has small-cell lung cancer, needing to be submitted to radiation, but she refuses the caesarean section and the treatment to give a better chance of survival to the baby. Meanwhile, the baby of a young couple is losing weight, and House finds that the baby is being fed by the vegetarian parents only with a vegan diet. The direction of the hospital calls the social service and the police and the parents are arrested. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I'm willing to die to protect my baby.
6 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Vogler is doing everything he can to sack House for making the damaging speech. He is determined to fire anyone who stands in his way of getting rid of House.

House is trying to save a pregnant woman, and the choice is coming down to her or the baby. He finds a way to save both, but Vogler stops him.

he is also working with a baby that is exhibiting failure to thrive, and social services has the parents arrested. He manages to save both babies while Cuddy stands up to Vogler.

One can only imagine that things are going to be very different between Cuddy and House next season.
