Storyline

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

Goofs

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 »

Darker .... Step by Step ....
21 October 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This episode is a lot different than the ones before and takes it to a whole new level. It's not so much House's hallucinations, but this episode does a great job of showing us the weight of things. It revolves around death: Chase's remorse, Wilson's dead girlfriend... I think it shows that the season is slowly, reaaaalllly slowly moving into a darker direction. Hugh Laurie's performance is simply breathtaking in every scene, and as it turns out a sane, drug free House, appears to be way darker and human than the cracked up maniac before. Although some events, especially in the beginning of the episode may seem like a jigsaw puzzle hammered together, it all makes sense in the end. Really nice episode.
