House catches up to Cuddy in LL's room, where the patient is alternately moaning and screaming in pain. Cuddy asks whether it's a throbbing pain, or an imaginary one because LL doesn't want to go back to Death Row. LL says he feels like he's being stabbed in the gut, and House lifts the sheet to take a look. "Oh, so everybody lies except a convicted murderer?" Cuddy scoffs, in what is quickly becoming the House equivalent of Star Trek's "I'm a doctor, not [an object/occupation]!" line. What Cuddy doesn't know (but we do, thanks to the Magic School Bus Cam) is that something is seeping through a hole in LL's intestines. Really, I think we were all better off not seeing that. House pulls back LL's sheet to reveal a nice bloody mess coming from LL's shorts. Ladies, I think you can sympathize with me here that getting your first period is always scary and embarrassing, so it must be pretty bad to have it happen in front of half the police force and doctor staff like that. Welcome to womanhood, LL! House says he doesn't think LL is faking the pool of blood, and asks Cuddy what she thinks. Cuddy doesn't respond, but if she had, it simply would have been to say: "Curses! Foiled again!" as she shook her fist in the air.
House looks over LL's criminal record as Stacy enters and non-apologizes that she didn't have a choice but to tell on House. House says that Hitler had the best intentions, too. And while he's comparing Stacy to Hitler, he might as well compare himself to Gandhi, who marched to the sea and made salt even though he wasn't supposed to. "I trusted you," House says. "I know," Stacy says, "but I crapped all over that just like I do all your other weak spots, because I like to torment you for no apparent reason." House says that he's an idiot. Stacy says that she did what she thought was right. House says that's the only reason anyone does anything. And then he has an idea.
Chase and Foreman -- who still do work at this hospital, unlike Cameron -- report that LL had a foot of necrotic bowel removed during surgery. I'm glad that was a "tell, don't show" moment. House wonders why LL killed the second inmate, and Foreman and Chase are lost. House says that LL had a reason to kill three of his four victims: the girlfriend was cheating on him, the first inmate attacked him, and the guard was known for being abusive. Foreman snarks that LL is doing us all a favor by ridding the world of "bad seeds," and House ignores that to ask, again, why LL killed the second inmate. No one knows. House writes a giant question mark on the whiteboard.
