Storyline

While treated for light lesions received in a motorcycle accident in Middletown, House proves ER Dr. Kurtz wrong twice about another ER patient: bike accident victim Lee. He reveals that Lee is neither brain dead nor received his brain injury from the crash but the other way around. Lee anxiously hears everything but loses the ability to communicate with his eyelid movements because of a brain biopsy. Taub hopes to convince House to cancel his ill-considered resignation. Wilson jousts with House about why he was in Middletown, while both fear their secrets may be discovered. Written by KGF Vissers

A great episode
4 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mos Def guest stars as a man who falls ill and can't speak or move. He ends up in a New York state hospital room with House as a fellow patient -- House apparently has taken a tumble off his motorcycle and scraped himself up pretty good. Meanwhile, a doctor is waiting for the paralyzed Mr. Def to die so he can transplant his heart, but House quickly establishes that the poor is alive and conscious by slight movements of his eyes. House eventually gets him transferred to Princeton and proceeds to figure out what's ailing the guy. Half the episode is told from the patient's POV and mind, with some great voice-over narration, and the other half is standard House and crew working on the guy. At times, the episode verges on the surreal as the patient imagines himself in various places, playing with his children or talking to his wife and House. The computer-aided effects are seamless, and stand second only to the moment when House walked by himself in an episode from the first or second season. Mr. Def, a rapper who costarred with Bruce Willis in the movie 16 BLOCKS, is funny and said and very convincing as the helpless patient. The kids are cute, too.
