Twelve-year-old Gabriel 'Gabe' Reilich thinks he's cursed after collapsing when his name comes out of a Ouija board game played with mates, marking him for death. Dr. Robert Chase explores the abandoned meeting place of the boys' secret society and the suspicious substances found there. Gabe's scary mix of suddenly-appearing symptoms suggest anthrax and a rare, infectious tropical disease. Meanwhile, Chase refuses to have any personal contact with his visiting father, rheumatologist Rowan Chase, a world authority on auto-immune diseases who suddenly turns up and joins the diagnostic joust. House takes a stubborn interest in Rowan's reason to visit his estranged son, as well as in the past of Gabe's admired, separated father, Jeffrey Reilich. Written by

You want to get to the bottom of this, you're doing it exactly right. Don't talk to the people involved. Drag your buddy away from work for some pointless speculation...

You want to know how two chemicals interact: Do you ask them? No. They're gonna lie through their lying little chemical teeth. Throw them in a beaker and apply heat.
