What will you do if your father, grandfather, and great-grandfather all fell ill due to sudden heart failure at age 40, and you are nearing that fateful age? The Princeton Plainsboro team and House take on this case on tonight's episode of House, a reckless police detective with a weird and frankly scary family history of sudden heart failure.
Of course, House (Hugh Laurie) is not keen on diagnosing the patient without any detectable symptoms, the team, primarily urged by Cameron (Jennifer Morrison), attempts to identify his condition so the detective can live without fear of dying young. outside the case, Chase (Jesse Spencer) is still haunted by his actions in the Dibala case that just won't die - pun. House himself confronts some ghosts of his own.
Karma was the theme of the last episode of House
. A billionaire business with keen business acumen chose to forego his riches, by signing a deal that is guaranteed to make him bankrupt in hopes of making his son's health improve by balancing out the success in his life. As a result (or not, depending on the school of thought you belong to), the previous fatal diagnosis - Degos - became Primary Antiphospholipid Syndrome, a manageable one.
Elsewhere on that episode, Foreman conducted an M and M (morbidity and mortality conference) regarding the Dibala case. Still fusing over some loose ends, Chase realized that House had figured out that he killed Dibala and told him he'd always be in power no matter what. There was also the case of 13 (Olivia Wilde), whose travel plans to Bangkok was canceled by someone - later, it was revealed that it was House, with Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard) giving her an explanation why this was so.
At the end of the episode, however, she was still shown boarding a plane.
