Best episode yet!
19 February 2011 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

This episode breaks new ground in story-telling, even for House. This time the patient is the only doctor at a remote Antarctic research station. On top of the weekly treasure hunt for a diagnosis, this episode has House actually caring enough about a patient to talk to them.

The limited resources of the girl's location, plus the girl's medical training, make it necessary for House to interact with the patient more than usual and he ends up being smitten. Yet there's an on-site rival who goes to great cringe-worthy lengths for the girl they both care about.

Add in Wilson's mystery date and we have the best House episode ever.
