The results are in on Lou's intestinal bump and it's not a ganglioma. Oh, if they put her through all that for nothing, she is going to sue them so hard. But it did help somewhat, as they now know that the bump is caused by amyloidosis. Unfortunately, it doesn't tell them what's causing it. Foreman, Kumar, and Hadley throw out diagnoses, all of which Taub rejects in short order. He thinks this case is impossible to solve without House. Well, you don't have House, so try being constructive, Taub. I hate Hadley, but at least she's trying here.
Foreman goes to Wilson, whose office is now looking all fake-packed, with random boxes on the floor and his wall art wrapped in bubble wrap. Wilson examines the slide of patient's intestinal bump and says lymphoma could be the cause of the amyloidosis. Foreman says there are no palpable lymph nodes. Wilson says that doesn't rule the diagnosis out. Foreman says they'll start patient on chemo, and, on a personal level, he thinks Wilson should leave. House uses Wilson as a sidekick and Cuddy uses him as a House checker-upper. Neither of them have Wilson's best interests at heart. If getting away from PPTH will make Wilson's life easier, Foreman thinks he should go for it. Meanwhile, when Foreman tried to leave PPTH, it only made his life harder.
Oh, great. Hadley gets yet another scene. She takes a seat next to Lou, who's started chemo and says she's feeling better already. Hadley chalks that up to the placebo effect, since it's supposed to take time for the feeling better to happen. Obviously, it's not lymphoma, but let's keep the charade going for now. Hadley apologizes for judging Lou's life and choices. Lou says Hadley might be one of the birds and not a flunkie. Again, I don't think she's spent enough time with Hadley to really know that. Maybe she's just sucking up so Hadley will hire her as her personal assistant. Instead, she gets a Personal Confession about Hadley's Huntington's diagnosis. Hadley says she's got about a dozen years before her mind and body fall apart. "I won't be able to fly. I won't be able to walk. I won't be able to breathe," she says. So her life has to matter now. "I want something to be different because of me," she says. "I am," Lou says. Not only is she going to be healthy, but she's also looking for a job running things instead of assisting the person who runs things. Hadley smiles. They should totally make out right now.
