Storyline

As a favor to his former girlfriend Stacy Warner, House drugs her husband Mark who refused to be examined by him. He's diagnosed with brain symptoms that seem to fit encephalitis or Alzheimer, but tests prove inconclusive. Chase found that he took amphetamines. Then a row with Stacy causes Greg to discover that Mark has erratic memory loss. He concludes porphyria is likely, but the only test to justify dangerous therapy is perilous, especially as Mark refuses to take the attack-inducing cocktail. Written by KGF Vissers

Outrageous behavior
1 January 2007 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

In order to get Stacy's husband into the hospital for tests, House must resort to a rather unusual tactic. The scene in which he does so is both shocking and side-splittingly funny. Problem is, once House gets Mark into a hospital bed, Mark starts getting really, really sick and for awhile it appears Mark may not make it. Will House save the day? Or will he let Mark buy the farm in order to make a grab for Stacy? The last few seconds of this episode are a real heartbreaker, so be prepared. And they are done without dialog, in a manner that lets Hugh Laurie really demonstrate his acting chops. The delectable Sela Ward as Stacy has a way of either growing on you or making you wish she were dead. As her story arc progresses and winds down, you will have to decide for yourself. But I will say I for one would not be averse to her return someday.
