House
5 March 2010 | by johnbeals79See all my reviews

This was a very good episode. It was intense and suspenseful. This episode is a must see. It is intense just for the purpose of the kid's illness; Dr. Foreman's future with the show; House playing chess to find a cure for the young individual. All the doctors are finding a cure for this kid. They have no answers except for Dr. House. They need to find the cure fast. If they do not find the cure the young individual will die. The young individual is rude, crude, disrespectful, and it seems that every doctor does not like this kid. The kid is very smart. Does he have a personality disorder or does he have a chemical problem?
