Storyline

When Benjamin suddenly collapses after making a rare and generous donation, House and Dr. Chi Park are convinced that his extreme altruistic behavior may indicate a deeper medical disorder. With no definitive explanation for Benjamin's loss of consciousness and unresponsiveness to treatment, House pushes just the right buttons to recruit former prison doctor Jessica Adams to volunteer her time and expertise to the case. Benjamin then makes a bold but life-threatening offer that could save another life, and the team must diagnose his disorder before he puts his own life on the line. Meanwhile, Adams and Park test each other's outlook on generosity and gratitude, and Thirteen's guilt conflicts with her pursuit of personal happiness. Written by Fox Publicity

going downhill
2 November 2011 | by (Shropshire, England) – See all my reviews

The female doctors do their best, but the writing for them is bad, and there is simply no fun. This is bad writing and the most boring that house has ever been. The female doctors casting is a failure, the small one is incredibly annoying, a squeaking nuisance. House himself is entertaining, and the prison break guy as flat as ever. There was a dull subplot involving Wilson, who is not an interesting character any more. The show is running out of steam pretty fast. That the show is watchable at all is down to Laurie, but this is putting a lot of strain on keeping the episode together. 5/10 for the show. - 0/10 for the assistants.
