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

Quotes

Thirteen - Dr. Remy Hadley: You're a coward! You need to know everything because you're afraid to be wrong. You're so afraid of being ordinary, of just being another doctor, just another human being that you'll risk other people's lives.
Dr. Gregory House: I'm arrogant. You're the coward. You're terrified of death. You just want to cheat it by making it come sooner, gives you the illusion of control.

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

P.S. Why must we write ten lines of text to review a TV episode?
