Storyline

A young homeless man who is a former drug addict is found in a park showing signs of olfactory impairment and horrific scars and burn marks on his chest. With an uncertain identity and the patient's severely worsening conditions, the team looks to the patient's personal records and family history in order to understand his detachment. Meanwhile, Cuddy confides in Wilson and expresses her guilt for ending her relationship with House, and just as the team warms up to the patient, they discover a disturbing secret about the man whose life they saved.

Goofs

House punishes a member of his team by shooting him with a remote control helicopter, then House says he is practicing "negative reinforcement". Negative reinforcement is not the same as punishment. It is the withholding or removal of an unpleasant stimulus. This is a common mistake but House should know better. See more »

An ironic title
31 January 2012 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

With Cuddy dumping House pretty much out of nowhere the writers can finally let go again and enjoy his brutally juvenile side - and boy they do. What's happening for most of the episode is House annoying the crap out of everyone to unseen ends (including the viewers I might assume, at least I couldn't stand watching it). Cuddy is looking the other way, Wilson appears for fruitless rants, and the rest of the team apparently doesn't care. Imagine a plot centered on a 10 year old going berserk with no one restraining him. When did that ever become interesting?

I could hardly believe everyone showed up to his fake wedding putting a good face on things - the correct behavior would have been to not appear at all I'd assume. I guess the writers didn't think they could keep the show interesting with Cuddy and House establishing a lasting relationship, but so far I found him struggling to become a better partner more interesting than the regression to an extreme version of his former self. I really don't like where this is going.

I couldn't really care about the medical case either, the conclusion however in the last seconds was unexpected.

In my opinion season 7 has been the weakest so far. They returned to the standard formula, the personal stuff (apart from House & Cuddy) has been kept to a minimum and the temporary replacement for Thirteen in form of Martha Masters is simply unbearable. I understand that having need for a temporary character on the team means they'd have to create one the viewers wouldn't get too attached to, but a nerdy version of Cameron is something I didn't expect I'd have to put up with for a whole season.
