House Episode Recap: "Moving Chains" Season 6, Episode 12

An ailing college football player arrives at Princeton-Plainsboro. The team rushes to treat him before his NFL tryouts, but his variety of symptoms leaves the team torn on a diagnosis. Meanwhile, Foreman's brother (Orlando Jones) pays and unexpected visit to the hospital.

The Patient
A 22-year-old male college football star, Daryl, is admitted after bashing his own head in with a helmet with no recollection of ever doing so. The team automatically assumes it's 'roid rage, but they a variety of symptoms begin to present themselves. Daryl and his mother, however, are hot-to-trot to leave the hospital so he'll be able to participate in the NFL tryouts.

A New Member Joins the Team
House holds Foreman back as the team heads off to run tests. He tells Foreman his brother Marcus left a message at the hospital saying he needed to be picked up from jail. Foreman coldly says he's busy, but Foreman later finds Marcus sitting in House's office, only to learn House just hired him as his new personal assistant.

Foreman tells Marcus not to take the job, but his brother, who wants to prove he's a changed man, keeps it. House entertains Marcus' suggestions during brainstorming, buys him a desk and name plate, and even has him spy on Foreman. At his wits end, Foreman goes to Cuddy and tries to explain to her that Marcus has been given too many chances and doesn't deserve any more, but she can't do anything.

Wilson's theory of why House is meddling in Foreman's life is that deep down House is a nice guy and doesn't want to see Foreman throw away his relationship with his brother. But of course, House denies the good deed at all costs.

Marcus reveals to House that their mother died three months ago and demands House not bring it up to his little brother. But House does anyway, causing Marcus to quit and walk out. And Foreman doesn't follow after him.

The War on Hilson
Wilson wakes to find House in his bathroom, soaking in the tub — he even installed a grab rail. After Wilson lays the ground rules banning House from his tub, Wilson wakes the next morning to find a possum in the tub. Wilson vows payback. House sneaks back in to the tub to soak his leg, but when he tries to get out, his handrail rips out of the wall, and House falls face first back into the tub.

At first, House is convinced this is Wilson's way of getting back at him, but he soon realizes that the possum and rail is someone else trying to play a prank on the both of them. The two wait up to until the middle of the night to catch the prankster in the act, but just as Wilson is about to toss in the towel, the fire sprinklers go off and flood the apartment — including the flat screen.

Family Always Comes First
The team starts to think that Daryl has lymphoma, and the football player is thrilled to hear his spleen can be removed and he'll be able to play for the scouts by the weekend. But when performing the procedure, Chase sees that Daryl's liver is inflamed, so it's no lymphoma. Instead, he is suffering from a condition that requires an extensive treatment of blood thinners. Daryl asks to attend the tryouts first, but Foreman tells him he could die right there on the field.

Once the blood thinners start to kick in, Daryl feels better and heads off to the NFL tryouts against his mothers wishes. Foreman follows him and asks him why he's risking his life, even when his mother told him not to. Daryl explains that his mother made so many sacrifices for him, and now it's his turn to make the sacrifice for a chance to provide for her. Daryl's words make Foreman stop and think, but Daryl can't go any further as his illness starts to affect his vision, and he returns to the hospital. 

Foreman tells the team of the vision symptom, and then goes to see Marcus at the halfway house to give him another chance. He tells his brother he'll help him get back on his feet and invites him to stay with him. The two share an emotional hug. 

House later has his light bulb moment and realizes that Daryl had melanoma between his toes and should be fine after the cancerous mole is removed.

Who's the Prankster?
As House and Wilson are walking through the cafeteria discussing the possible culprits, House — and his lunch tray — go flying through the air after someone trips him. Why, it's Lucas!

Just as House is about to beat him with his cane, Lucas reveals that he is the prankster and is getting back at them for stealing the condo from he and Cuddy. He threatens to tell Cuddy about the condo ordeal if they choose to seek revenge. We learn later that Cuddy already knows about the condo, but asked Lucas not to retaliate over it. Clearly that didn't work.

What did you think of the episode? Did you enjoy learning more about Foreman's life outside the hospital? What do you think of Lucas' pranks? Do you think House will seek revenge even though he says he won't?
