Split personality
4 September 2006 | by xredgarnetxSee all my reviews

Real-life model Cameron Richardson plays a teen model who exhibits aggressive behavior and collapses on a runway during a fashion show. From there, it's all downhill in an episode that allows House to fully acknowledge his lecherous side. Surprise after surprise awaits the team, as the model goes from bad to worse both in body and mind. Richardson is extremely fetching as the sickly waif who may not be all she appears. For the astute viewer, the ultimate revelation will have been guessed halfway through. Still, a good show and no harm done. House's leg pains appear to be increasing, which will lead in coming episodes to a Holmesian solution, if you Sherlock Holmes fans out there get my drift. It is worth nothing this episode gets about as close to nudity as this series is ever likely to, and this gratifying display of flesh is put on by none other than Richardson, in a moment of angry confrontation with House.
