Storyline

After a 200-year-old medicine jar found on an off-shore shipwreck shatters in a teenage girl's palm, she is admitted to Princeton Plainsboro for symptoms closely linked to smallpox. When the Center for Disease Control's Dr. Dave Broda institutes a lockdown on the hospital and suspends House's team's ability to diagnose, Masters grows suspicious of Broda's motives and becomes convinced that the patient is suffering from a different disease. The girl's father soon experiences similar symptoms, and House is forced to make a precarious decision that puts his own life in jeopardy. Meanwhile, Wilson and Sam comfort a 6-year-old chemotherapy patient who prompts them to examine their relationship. Written by Fox Publicity

Trivia

At the end of the episode, Cuddy was unable to forgive House for lying to her even thought he almost died. House was nearly killed by a virus that was only brought to light through information about a cat. In some mythologies, a Cat's vengeance can last for seven generations. Cuddy's grudge may be somewhat symbolic considering that this was the 7th episode of the 7th season. See more »

Goofs

Felt Rushed... I just wasn't wet yet...
15 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off let me clarify. I am addicted and fully in love with this series. Now that being said I felt this episode suffered a slight misstep.

The content and plot of this episode seems to stumble as it tries to desperately pushes to much plot into its time limit. I won't reveal the plot points that are included but they felt rushed. The Dialogue between House and the team loses its cadence and the Diagnoses seems rushed. Also the drama that House's actions present seems hollow and not nearly as dramatic as should of been. This episode would of been incredible had it been a two part cliff hanger.
