On tonight's episode of House, House (Hugh Laurie) and the team rush to treat an ailing college football star in time for the patient to compete in NFL tryouts. But when the patient experiences an onslaught of varied and unusual symptoms, the team has trouble reaching a consensus on how to effectively treat him in time.
Meanwhile, Foreman's (Omar Epps) brother Marcus (guest star Jones) makes a surprise visit to the hospital. The two's not exactly on good terms, and things turn from bad to worse when House tries to go between them.
On the last episode of the Fox medical series, the team took on the case of so-called Beauty and the Beast (a very hot lady executive with a not-so-hot husband). Thirteen (Olivia Wilde) suggested it was probably love, but the guys were being guys, and House thought it was a "fascinating window into the mysteries of human psychology" or something.
While working on the case, House also suggested that Thirteen and Foreman had some unresolved issues, but that is so obviously farfetched, right? Yet much later, when Thirteen blew a fuse when the patient made a false sexual harassment charge, House turned out to be exactly correct.
Thirteen realized hot patient was a psychopath, meaning she doesn't have a conscience nor emotions, she lied all the time, manipulated all the time, and slept around. But it turned out to be a lot more complicated than that. Later on, Valerie's sister revealed that their childhood hadn't been kind, that her psychopathy, which is obviously a symptom, may have started during puberty.
The final diagnosis was Wilson's disease, which manifests as psychiatric symptoms and liver disease.
Also, House got stuck in a lunch with someone he wronged in med school. Turned out, the guy didn't finish at all because of the papers House switched and now worked as a grocery store bagger. Poor guy. And poor House. The guy just might have acquired a conscience thanks to the loony bin stint. When it was later revealed that the guy was lying, House still insisted that he take a check for his mortgage.
