Storyline

After elimination to two plausible diagnosis it seems the only obvious treatment for Lupe, who fainted in the street and developed life-threatening symptoms at an alarming rate, is suppressing her immune system. Once that's done, she is found to have an infection, which is now untreatable. Foreman, who systematically avoids his family, especially his mother, convinced House to make her sign consent over. House digs into the case of Wilson's second ex-wife Bonnie, who wants him to take their dog. He learns from her, posing as a real estate client, what it takes to prevent a 'serial husband' to repeat-offend. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Bonnie: Do you want to know why I named that dog Hector?
Dr. Gregory House: No. Let's keep it a mystery.
Bonnie: Because even when he was a puppy, he was the worst-tempered dog we'd ever seen. He was supposed to be house-trained. He'd pee on the carpet every morning. When we had people over, he had to nip at their ankles. "Hector does go rug" is an anagram for "Doctor Greg House". That's how early in the marriage I resented you.
Dr. Gregory House: Wow. Did I ever waste money on that place setting.

Nice, but wrong
4 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, this is a heartbreaking episode, but medically it is wrong. It is based on the statement that antibiotics can't treat bacterial infection (sepsis) when immune system is destroyed by radiation. This is completely wrong. Antibiotics work on their own even in the test tube - no need for immune system... So, they could have treated the patient with antibiotics and wait for immune system to rebuild (or get a bone marrow transplant), and the patient would not die in 24 hours. As much as it was needed for dramatization, this is very major mistake in the script. The medical complexity of this series suggests that qualified consultants should be in place, but either it is not the case or they've missed this episode completely.
