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
Did You Know?
Most of Broda's story about Janet Parker, the last known person to die from smallpox, is true. It is not true, however, that she died in 4 days; she likely contracted the virus on 25 July, then she fell ill on 11 August and died on 11 September. Her mother was also infected, but she survived.
