The team takes on the case of a reckless police detective who has a family history of sudden heart failure that killed his father, grandfather and great-grandfather all at age 40. Though House is not keen on diagnosing the patient without any detectable symptoms, the team, urged by Cameron, attempts to identify his condition so the detective can live without fear of dying young. Meanwhile, Chase is haunted by his actions in the Dibala case, and House confronts some ghosts of his own. Written by Fox Publicity

Did You Know?


Once Wilson converts his study into a bedroom for House, if you look closely at his nightstand, you can see Lydia's sunglasses that House wore in the episode House M.D.: Broken (2009). See more »


Foreman begins an autopsy by cutting through the chest using an electric circular bone saw. This saw will not cut through bare skin. It's actually rather similar to the saws used to cut casts. The saw basically uses friction to cut through bone, but it is pretty harmless to skin. The way to cut through skin is with a scalpel. See more »


Dr. Gregory House: You've a little devil on your shoulder told you to kill a guy. And you've got a little angel won't shut up. Telling you, you're going to burn in a lake of fire.
Dr. Robert Chase: I'm fine!
Dr. Gregory House: You shouldn't be! Talk to someone. Docs fixed me up in 7 weeks. You're... 10 minutes, tops.

House hallucinating?
20 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A cop takes a bad fall while pursuing a suspect, and is convinced he will shortly die due to some undiagnosed congenital defect, like his dad and granddad before him. House is still staying with Wilson and begins to hear eerie voices. Is he regressing? Chase is feeling increasingly guilty about the Dibala death. It's a real mess. House gives the fatalistic cop a fake diagnosis and sends him on his way. This proves to be a very big mistake. Oh, and Amber is back! Can't keep a good actress down, I always say! House continues to sport a crew cut, which I guess we will just have to get used to. Foreman takes a backseat in this one, thank heavens!
