A young professional champion bull rider is admitted for treatment after being attacked by a bull. After conducting multiple inconclusive tests, the team enlists House's advice outside of the hospital while he attends to a few issues away from the case. Back in the hospital, the bull rider's condition continues to worsen, but with disappearing symptoms and the patient's more frequent mini-seizures, the team's last option is risky open-heart surgery. Meanwhile, Masters develops a crush on their bull rider patient much to Taub's surprise. Written by Fox Publicity

Amongst my favourites!

Ok, not a perfect episode. But for me it was. One of the reasons is that my expectations were really low. After a half-good season 7, and the last episode being entertaining, daring, diffrent and also made a emotional decision witch would make die-hard House fans sceptical about continuing to care. This episode did a perfect job follwing the previous. And the ending of this one is one of the best House scenes I've seen. Also entertaining the way House deals with the loss from the episode before. Staying at a hotel with a bow and arrow... god that was funny and shocking. Personally I'd name this together with "Houses Head", "Broken", "Three Stories" and "No Reason": 10/10
