Storyline

Jason is so tired of doctors failing to find what's wrong with him that he demands a diagnosis from the best by holding House at gun-point, with a bunch of other hostages. Gradually some of those are released in exchange for supplies, such as drugs, which Cuddy must personally deliver. He also insists on testing each drug on a hostage first. House still keeps a keen interest in the problem although his sense of priorities frightens his team. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When House puts the perpetrator in the MRI machine, he stops at his head. He should have put his whole body in, so when the MRI was turned on, the gun would be pulled to the wall of the MRI by the magnetic field violently and likely out of the guy's hand. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Chris Taub: House is going to get someone killed.
Dr. Lawrence Kutner: The guy's ready to kill for a diagnosis. I can't think a better to be trapped in there with him.
Dr. Allison Cameron: How about someone who's not going to keep pushing the whack job's buttons until he cracks?

powerful ending
13 October 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have to admit when the episode started my initial reaction was ughh, cheap entertainment. But the episode got more and more interesting as it progressed. Thirteen, who is quickly becoming my favorite character of the series (other than House himself) showed magnificent character development and was the star of the episode and displayed the most powerful climactic ending of the series. House himself was great in the show and the gunman really provided a cool mirror character to House. Great episode.

10/10
