Storyline

A year has passed since House crashed his car into Cuddy's home, and we find House spending time behind bars at the East New Jersey Correctional Facility under the close watch of the prison warden. When an antagonistic prison gang leader makes a serious threat, House solicits the help of a fellow inmate, but when another inmate's unusual medical symptoms spark his curiosity, House must come up with creative ways to treat the patient while navigating prison rules. House meets Dr. Jessica Adams, a young, intelligent and bright-eyed clinic doctor, but when they are faced with a controversial opportunity to diagnose the patient's life-threatening illness, Adams is confronted with a choice to trust House and put her career on the line or play by the book.

this episode brings a new light to house
10 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i really liked this episode a lot being that it brings house to a new scenery and new obstacles and in this episode its an entirely new cast

in the season premiere of house season 8 house is sentenced to jail for crashing a car into his ex-girlfriends house ( Dr Lisa Cuddy ) he is tolled that if he behaves for five days they would let him go . as soon as i saw him agree to that i thought to myself i think i know house well enough to know that he wont behave himself .

house on prison labor notices at the nursing department a patient who seems to have lupus according to houses revelations but is that really the case ??? and on the other hand house has to deal with prisoners that threaten to beat him if before he leaves he doesn't come up with 20 pain killer pills . watch this episode to see how houses deals with this patient in jail and how he does in fact get himself into trouble .

10/10 for all the times house outsmarted other prisoners watch this episode it especially interesting to watch being that its not a hospital but rather in a prison .
