"Don't Ever Change" Season 4, Episode 12

It's me again, that pesky Erin Fox, in for Nina. Tonight's episode starts out at a Hasidic Jewish wedding, where a lovely bride (Roz) and her bearded groom (Yonatan) are being hoisted up high in chairs during the Horah dance. The bride suddenly doesn't look so hot, and falls off the chair into the stunned crowd. Cut to opening credits. This teaser was quick and dirty...hmmm, no misdirects or anything. What do they think they're up to? House and Wilson meet up at an elevator where House busts Wilson's balls about dating CTB. House insists Wilson doesn't go for her type because he likes "needy" women. Wilson surprises House by saying they've been together for four months already. After House scrapes his jaw off the ground, he joins his team who are discussing possible ailments of the collapsing bride. House's end theory is that at 38, she married out of desperation, and basically wanted to off herself. Thirteen is way more convinced that she has endometriosis in her bladder and orders tests. Foreman and Taub search through the bride's belongings for anything that could have been used to poison her, while they talk about the mating rituals of Hasidic Jews. Taub says he doesn't get it at all, while Foreman says, hey, why not get together after only three meetings if you have the same values? Taub finds some funky panties in a box and Foreman discovers hard rock CDs with her name as producer. Now they're thinkin' she's been into some drugs. Back at PPTH, Roz tells Thirteen and Kutner that she converted six months ago, but before that was using heroin. They tell her that now they have to test her hair for latent toxins to see if there's any long term damage. Meanwhile, continuing his long list of inappropriate boundary crossings, House uses Wilson's key to wait for CTB to return home. He tries to guess why she would ever want to be with Wilson... egomaniacal House thinks it's all about getting back at House for not giving CTB the job. CTB definitely holds her own in the conversation, which drives House even more nuts. Heh. Back in his office, House discusses Roz's condition with Taub and Kutner. House now believes that the bride has porphyria because she went to extremes by becoming Hasidic. After the couple hears House's theory, they insist on a new doctor... especially after House calls himself "Dr. Yahweh". But now, the bride can't breathe, so they're stuck with House. And the team is back to one of their favorite theories: Lupus! Later, as a nice break, House decides to barge in on Wilson and CTB's date. When Wilson complains about the wait, CTB goes to harass the host while House observes, "She's going to slap him in the face with your testicles." Best. Line. Ever. When House realizes that Wilson is really into CTB's personality, he realizes that Wilson has chosen a female version of House. Insert awkward pause here. Roz's tests show she doesn't have Lupus, but then she gets a gnarly leg cramp. Foreman and Thirteen do a scan to check for clots. They wax philosophical about people who don't change, and who don't like boxes only if they don't fit into them. Then Foreman busts out with, "Like you, because your bisexual." Thirteen doesn't deny it, and every dude watching this show is now paying full attention. House enters and tells the team that his tests were just to prove the patient likes being tested on... until they make her stand up, and she crashes... then sits, and is fine. House is intrigued, and makes her do it a few more times. Sick puppy. After more tests (this time for heart issues) are ordered, House accosts Wilson about moving out of his hotel. Wilson cuts him off and agrees that yes, he is indeed dating House. It's brilliant... they've been a couple for years. I can hear the bloggers typing away as I write this! At last! Confirmation that House and Wilson are a couple! Hee. Thirteen and Taub do a sweat test while Yonatan defensively explains why he won't be with his wife during the test while she's undressed: Out of respect. Before anyone can apologize for offending him, Roz's temperature plummets and she starts to seize. The team realizes that Addison's disease fits Roz's symptoms and administers the proper meds. Meanwhile, Cuddy, due to a little prodding by House, talks to Wilson about his relationship with CTB. Cuddy knows CTB is going to leave Wilson devastated and empty in the end. Wilson just says, "Wow." He knows she's right. Roz starts feeling better and is happy with her treatment until she starts bleeding internally. Chase tells her she needs surgery to survive long enough for House to figure out what's going on. She refuses until sundown so she can have one Shabbat with her husband before she dies. Sad. They call in a Rabbi. House summons CTB and tells her if she can solve the case, and she'll get the job. She tells House that dating Wilson is not some tricky maneuver to get a job with House. She always thought she'd have to choose between respect and love, but with Wilson she gets both. House realizes she's changed. Awwww. Right before Roz is wheeled in to surgery, House has an epiphany (as always), that something isn't where it should be... that something is her kidney which has gone loose. Ouchy! This leaves House free to tell Wilson that he could do worse than a female proxy for him. Ha! Wilson freaks out because this admission means House has changed??? What? Huh? That's the last House for now, until the writers return. What did you think about the episode? Do you think House will leave Wilson and CTB alone now?
