A surprising visitor makes House an offer he can't refuse by giving him the opportunity to help the Princeton Plainsboro team treat a unique patient in order to save the life of an organ recipient being administered by Wilson. Although House finds himself back on familiar ground, he quickly realizes that much has changed since he left, and he is forced to work on the case with smart yet timid resident Dr. Chi Park. After several inconclusive treatments and with time running out, House and Dr. Park are left with one last option to examine the patient's medical history that could compromise House's conditional agreement with the hospital. Meanwhile, House makes an effort to reconnect with Wilson despite a cold reception. Written by Fox Publicity

Did You Know?


In the first ten minutes of the episode, House compares Dr. Chi Park to "Kato" and her car to "Black Beauty"; this is a reference to the Green Hornet series and movie. The movie came out earlier in 2011, starring Seth Rogen as Britt Reid (Van Williams in the series from the sixties) and Kato played by Jay Chou (Bruce Lee in the series). Notably, neither Asian actor shares exactly the same heritage as Dr. Park's character, which is the point of House's mockery. See more »


After they discard the lead hypothesis, Park considers 'other heavy metals, like beryllium.' Beryllium is not a heavy metal. See more »

Dr. Gregory House: Were you able to figure out what was wrong while I was screaming?

How Did This Girl Land This Role?
25 January 2020 | by atomicisSee all my reviews

Good acting is so ubiquitous nowadays that when a BAD actor is cast, it's actually shocking. Ms. Yi is that bad actor. Her mispronunciation and nasal mumbling is beyond annoying, and her recitation is so starkly reminding to us that the lines are memorized, not emoted, that we can all gain appreciation of even average actors by watching her. After savoring her ineptness, however, there are around forty more minutes which we are forced to endure her monotonous, mumbling, stone-faced readings of lines. How does this even happen?!
