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

Dr. Robert Chase: This is pathetic. If I strap a bomb to my chest, do I get seven doctors attending me? Do you think he's the only guy in New Jersey with an unsolved illness and a pistol? I'm not playing.

Great Episode
22 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode's a nice reprieve from the usual House formula. Note there were no "ironic" self-aware references to the predictability of the writing, references which are so annoyingly prevalent in every other episode before this one in Season 5. House's retorts are especially amusing and 13's acting is actually believable. Chase's and Foreman's roles confused me and seemed like superfluous details, maybe someone can explain to me why their decisions were meaningful. Sure the plot is somewhat implausible, but so is House's character, and the episode is engrossing in any case. Plus this episode has got to have the best soundtrack out of all the House episodes so far.
