Storyline

Tension reaches new heights when Cuddy faces sobering news that propels her to reevaluate her priorities. While House is distracted by his concern for Cuddy's well-being, the team treats a teenage patient whose worsening symptoms and suspicious body scars indicate more than just physical illness. Sensing the teen's troubled emotional and mental state, Taub turns to the patient's personal life for clues and uncovers disturbing home videos that could put the lives of his peers in danger. Meanwhile, Cuddy remains hopeful that House will be fully present when she needs him most, and a series of dreams, including a musical scene choreographed by Mia Michaels, provide glimpses into her life and her relationship with House.

Quotes

Lucinda: It's not even a question. Of course, I'll be Rachel's guardian. And House is cool with this? I mean you guys...
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: We've only been together a few months.
Lucinda: Hmm. Seems like longer. Probably because you've been talking about him for 10 years. And by talking I mean ranting about wanting to smash his teeth in with a stapler.
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: ...People change.

The most fitting title....
5 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Bombshells" is a perfect title for this episode. A little different than the typical House episode (patient faints, House argues about taking the case, wrong idea, wrong idea, House epiphany, etc), it's full of surprises and several times I found myself with my eyes wide open and my hands over my mouth in shock.

The dream sequences were so unique and interesting, and it was a great way to show how Cuddy was suffering and doubting silently and the final one (fully choreographed) was one of the most incredible performances I've seen on television! Two thumbs up, this could have even been a season finale but I love that it's the middle of the season so we could find out what happened after the biggest bombshell.
