"Frozen" Season 4, Episode 11

Hey guys! Erin Fox in for Nina again this week... So, Nina is a ginormous Giants' fan, as is my husband (I am vicariously), so they are still blanketed by an insane euphoria that can only come from kicking Tom Brady's butt. I however, am on the couch, ready to blog about the special post-Super Bowl episode of House. This week's teaser was one of the more unique and interesting ones in ages... an arctic repair man is trying to fix energy windmills in the middle of a blizzard. One blade flies off and slices the guy's femoral artery open. Enter the slow-mo savior, Cate, played by Mira Sorvino. She glues up the artery (no, seriously, she uses glue) but then starts to have pains of her own. Then she hurls into the snow and asks for help... but who will help her in the middle of no where? Enter House, looking for his beloved cable only to have Cuddy tell him that now patients have to pay for their cable. Appalled, House barely listens as Cuddy tells him about a psychiatrist (Cate) who needs medical help via web cam. After discussing all sorts of yucky sounding kidney stones that she could have, Kutner has the brilliant idea of using waves to break up her stones... except the waves are so strong, they shatter a jar used to see if the procedure would be safe. Guess that would be a no. Cate is feisty, and House seems to dig her. She insists that she can't have a kidney stone based on her symptoms, of course then House must insult her by saying "You know only one of us is a real doctor." Heh. House sends the team to spy on Cameron in order to get her to change the board's mind over the cable issue. This storyline is lame, but at least they're letting Cameron say more than three lines. The team sucks at harassing Cameron and fesses up about House's motives. Cameron, is used to these shenanigans, and refuses to play the game. Back in the igloo, Foreman and House realize Cate doesn't have a stone because her windpipe starts deviating to the left, indicating a collapsed lung. You know what that means... a recreation of Pulp Fiction's needle in the chest move! Of course she gets it in the exact right spot. After discussing next steps with Foreman, they tell Cate she may have a tumor, and that she needs to X-Ray her whole body. House then runs off to banter with Wilson about the possible cancer, and stumbles upon the fact that Wilson seems... happy? How dare he! Also, House decides that Cate needs a physical to check for enlarged lymph nodes in case she needs to biopsy one for lymphoma. Cate and House have some cyber camera flirting in his apartment, where he takes advantage of the situation by playing a little "Let's Get It On" as she palpates her naked body. She's super sassy here, and he's diggin' her big time. Poor Cate has to give herself the biopsy, and House actually calls her by name, and then asks if she's OK. Wilson almost falls out of his chair, and totally nails House on his abnormal sensitivity and care with Cate. Wilson then looks at her slide, and she doesn't have cancer. Yay. But then she gets the evil pain on her other side. Boo. Now House thinks she has an auto-immune disease, but she refuses to take the prednisone because someone else may need it later. Foreman tries to talk her into going outside to see if the cold will improve her condition but she passes out before that can happen. In the newest grossest idea since squirting breast milk into a kids mouth... House makes the Femoral guy drink her urine. EW. When he says it's watery, that means she has excess fluid in her brain. Now House is making the poor guy drill a whole in her skull to relieve cranial pressure. No pressure though! Foreman directs Femoral guy with the drill into Cate's head. OW. It works initially, and she wakes up from her coma. The team discusses new possible dianoses, and nifty Kutner comes up with fat emboli, and low and behold, he's freakin' right! Bone marrow from her broken toe (concealed by her socks during her almost-naked exam) leaked out and caused all the blockages. Cate's all better once that very painful break is reset. YAY! Now House's only mystery: Who the hell is Wilson dating. He stalks him to his date to find out: It's CTB!!! Can't wait to see the fall-out this coming Tuesday.
