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?


The actor who plays Donny (Jon Seda) also plays a cop on Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. His character is the brother of character Matt Casey's girlfriend. Casey is played by Jesse Spencer (Dr Chase). 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 »

Who was that city jumper?
29 October 2009 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I don't suppose that anyone might know who the city jumper at the very beginning of this episode was?

I can't seem to discover who the actor (stuntman, since there wasn't much call for 'acting') who was playing him was. No idea if what he was doing was particularly 'impressive' from an enthusiasts point of view, but from the average person, it certainly looked pretty darn amazing, and a great lead-in to the start of the episode with a bit of curiosity about what was going on/who would shortly be the one under House's tender-loving-care!

Any help would be fantastic, thanks!
