Odd episode
18 November 2006 | by xredgarnetxSee all my reviews

I watched most of this episode, but I need to see it again. A husband and wife arrive with some very odd ailments, and House has a heckuva time sorting this one out. The ending is a shocker, at least for someone like moi who never figures out twist endings (except for THE SIXTH SENSE). As I said, I will need to see this one again. I may be off, but this may be the episode that introduces David Morse as House's latest nemesis. On the other hand, that might be the next episode. Morse really brings some pizazz to the series as a cop that House needlessly humiliates, and who decides to humiliate -- nay, crush -- House in return. Morse, you may recall, was a fuzzy-cheeked intern in the very first adult-oriented prime time hospital drama, ST. ELSEWHERE. That was a long time ago. Most of you weren't even born yet.
