Storyline

Natalie Soellner, the school's laughing stock, is brought in after vomiting during a Christmas show while drugged with mushrooms by her classmates. She also has tranquilizers in her locker; even her mother doesn't exclude the possibility of a suicide attempt. However, her heart and liver results fit neither hypothesis and more secrets are unearthed. House sent himself a fake Christmas gift to test his new team, but Wilson thinks he needs to experience both sides of kindness himself but is incapable of being kind to anyone.

Not the best episode, but warm and fuzzy
26 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

Medically a fairly boring episode, but it had a lot of warm and fuzzy moments, like House lying about the virgin birth to make the couple happy. As far as Thirteen and Foreman, it's been a couple of episodes coming. Also the the person confused about her sexuality she is BI. Bi means you are attracted to both sexes, not that you're bi, gay and straight. It means that she likes both, she dates both, that the person's sex doesn't matter in her decision of who to date. An unlikely couple and considering I've seen all the episodes we know it doesn't last long.

Back to the show though, it's nice to see Cuddy getting involved in some of the diagnoses though I miss the crazy brainstorm sessions in this episode. Still about a 7/10
