Tension reaches new heights when Cuddy faces sobering news that propels her to reevaluate her priorities. While House is distracted by his concern for Cuddy's well-being, the team treats a teenage patient whose worsening symptoms and suspicious body scars indicate more than just physical illness. Sensing the teen's troubled emotional and mental state, Taub turns to the patient's personal life for clues and uncovers disturbing home videos that could put the lives of his peers in danger. Meanwhile, Cuddy remains hopeful that House will be fully present when she needs him most, and a series of dreams, including a musical scene choreographed by Mia Michaels, provide glimpses into her life and her relationship with House.

Dreadful, dreadful, dreadful
5 November 2018 | by aspectacleofmyselfSee all my reviews

Not just the worst episode of House, but possibly the worst episode of any at-one-time-great television show. Incomprehensible plotting and editing and a performance by Amber Tamblyn makes one lonesome for the unlamented Olivia Wilde. And to think, we have another season of this balderdash still to come.
