The ex-wife sees House in her front yard, talking to her new son. Emory's there too. She's furious. The new husband rushes out to punch House some more, although House is shouting that he's figured out what killed Drew: it was Alport syndrome, which is genetic. He eventually gets through to her that a genetic disease could affect her new child. She says he's lying, because Drew wasn't deaf. But House brought a tuning fork so he could demonstrate the high-frequency hearing impairment. It's why Drew made up his own words. The new husband eventually lets go of House. House tells him there are platitudes that can help him with his anger. The police roll up. The ex-wife looks teary-eyed. She tells Emory that she misses Drew, too. They both cry. I notice she didn't say anything about missing Emory. House gets into the police car, which drives away. He looks thoughtful.
Iris is getting some fluids. Adams tells the mother that she's responding well.
House is outside Foreman's office like a kid waiting for the principal to see him. Inside, Foreman tells Wilson that he thought threatening House with jail would work. He can't back down now. He has to send him back to prison to show his authority. This is the week after Foreman and House worked together to screw Wilson out of boxing tickets. Just thought I'd mention that. Wilson sighs. He tells Foreman his job is keeping the machine running. Cuddy didn't try to control House; she managed him. "She knew better than anyone what a tool he could be." So is he suggesting that Foreman have sex with House? Because that's what it sounds like. Wilson leaves and gives House a grave nod.
Foreman comes out and sits by House. He asks what Cuddy would have done. House claims it would have been ten clinic hours. Foreman says, "Cuddy's not here anymore. You've got thirty." And that's the resolution? Boring!
