Storyline

A nun arrives at the clinic with what appears to be a skin rash caused by an allergy, and starts to go into anaphylactic shock in reaction to the medication Dr. House gives her. When he then gives her an injection of epinephrine, she goes into cardiac arrest, leading Dr. Cuddy to assume that House gave her an accidental overdose. Absolutely sure that he gave the patient the correct dosage, House begins a series of unorthodox treatments to uncover the truth, and also does a bit of snooping into the sister's past. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Hard to watch Part Deux
3 April 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

Another unpleasant and extremely serious episode, as House works on a nun who exhibits a scary bunch of symptoms. She has a secret House must wrest from her in order to save her. But she would rather fly into the arms of her loving God than help House. This is one of those episodes that is so intense, I am amazed the show has any audience. But the truth is, it represents drama of the highest order, as House and the nun go at each other. The acres playing the nun is first-rate and quite believable. This is the kind of episode that makes me flashback to my days as a hospital orderly and nurse's aide, something I would rather not dwell on.
