House Season 2 Episodes

24 Episodes 2005 - 2006

The second season of House finds Dr. House (Golden Globe winner Hugh Laurie) determined to win back the affections of his ex-wife (Sela Ward), but rather lands in the midst of a deadly medical mystery. His methods of medical research remain as unconventional as ever (among his tactics include breaking and entering), but his team remains loyal, and his patients, with a little luck and a lot of research, remain alive.

House battles to save the life of a volatile death-row inmate (LL Cool J) who collapses in an exercise yard after hearing the "voices" of the four people he murdered. Just getting him to the hospital requires legal gymnastics, and recently rehired hospital lawyer Stacy Warner (Sela Ward) performs them---without Cuddy's knowledge. Meanwhile, Cameron refuses to believe a young woman's lung-cancer diagnosis.
