After the “KISS” from last episode, House is in denial of this brewing love/lust interest with Dr. Cuddy. A change in House’s reaction towards Cuddy made Wilson think that there’s more to the kiss than what House says. House’s new and former team have also noticed a change in the way he handles confrontations with Cuddy.
In the diagnostic front, Cameron asked House to take a case of a young man who experience pain when he goes out of his house and seizures. The young man also has inferiority complex and doesn’t like to be in a crowd. Initially, the reason for his phobia is due to witnessing his girlfriend murdered. They did an x-ray and found some blockage. They needed to do surgery but the patient refused to go out of the house. To solve this dilemma, they did an illegal move but was foiled as Cameron had to do the good thing. The patient lawyered up so they had to do the surgery at home. It was actually cool as they cut open one of the blockage fire came out because of gas. There was no sudden enlightening in this story but the result of the sickness is due to lead poisoning.
