Adam is brought in by his dad Doug after a freaky explosion accident while they were motorcycling which left the adolescent with massive burns. Adam gets surprising cardiac neurological complications and even an orgasm. House however leaves Adam largely to his students as he insists on attending a lecture, disguised.

House harbors twenty years of belated revenge for a cheating incident at Johns Hopkins, by Dr. Weber, which cost House an internship while they were students there. Adam gets brain problems, but after an unethical test on a comatose patient House, who has swallowed his medicine, takes charge himself. Written by
