"House takes on a teenage faith healer, Wilson desperately wants into a poker game, and tensions escalate between Cameron and Foreman." This is one of those episodes that takes on so much, you'd swear it will blow up in the writers' faces before it's over. Amazingly, all three subplots are deftly handled, and juggled to perfection. Last issue first, Cameron and Foreman are definitely not getting along after Cameron accuses Foreman of stealing and publishing Cameron's paper on something or other. House pours salt in the wound by admitting to having had her paper sit on his desk for four months while Foreman's was only turned in three weeks prior. Some really nice friction develops between these two wonderful actors. Meanwhile, Wilson is hot to trot to play in an upcoming poker game to which House has pointedly not invited him, giving the actor who plays Wilson a grand opportunity to do more than just trade jibes with House. And in the main event, House must deal with a teenage faith healer who is ready to give up the ghost rather than have House perform certain procedures. Like many in his crew an avowed atheist, House is ready to rumble with this holier-than-thou punk -- until a miracle occurs. Or does it? Leave it to House to get to the bottom of things, but even the ending is not so cut and dried as House would like it. Spirituality is definitely put to the test in this zany episode. A very funny but subtle moment that might be easily missed: Absentmindedly noodling on his piano, House is clearly heard playing a popular gospel tune.Watch for an almost unrecognizable William "Greatest American Superhero" Katt as the faith healer's conflicted dad. Katt starred in the movie "House" many years ago. Only his "House" was haunted. If you've never seen it, please do. It's scary and funny, a sort of B-level "Ghostbusters" and "Evil Dead" rolled up into one.
