Storyline

Thirteen has been in prison for the past six months, but the real mystery for House is what she did to get there. When she exits the prison, she is taken aback to find him waiting for her, and unaware he's got plans for the two of them for the next few days. As House probes Thirteen for more information about her crime, intent on solving the puzzle of her mysterious incarceration, they travel to an annual spud-gun competition and join forces to compete against House's much younger, overconfident rival, and along the journey uncover secrets and truths about each other. At the hospital, the team treats a science teacher suffering from severe respiratory illness, and when the team inspects the patient's house for clues to his illness, they immediately learn he's a hoarder. But upon a second visit to obtain more information, they uncover something in the many piles that shocks them. Also, Taub tries to get back into the dating scene, but winds up retreating to his old habits. Written by Fox Publicity

Martha Masters: She was a cheerleader. Hah.
Dr. Robert Chase: You know, when you're interested in something and nobody else is, the polite thing is to keep it to yourself.

Wonderfully played by Hugh Laurie and Olivia Wilde

Thank God - for bringing back Thirteen & hence giving us a meaningful episode in the so far mediocre 7th season. I'm happy that we're completely distracted from House's juvenile antics at the hospital (hopefully to never return or at least in much smaller doses) and get reintroduced to my personal favorite supporting character. It does a lot for the synergy of the cast to have a truly interesting female character on the show - since Martha has been nothing but an annoyance and Cuddy ditching House out of nowhere (even though he's been trying hard in my opinion).

The reason for her absence was shocking and touching. I was glad to see House actually connect with someone else (especially after the recent breakup with Cuddy). Even though he's an emotional klutz he had one of his best moments in the whole whopping series when he said "I'll kill you - when the time comes...".

I won't get my hopes up too high for a quick recovery of House but at the very least I expect the beginning of the healing process now. Two wounded people helping each other back on their feet was an excellent formula for this episode - hats off.
