Instead of waiting until after the biopsy to gossip, Foreman gossips about Cameron with Chase during the biopsy. He figures out that Cameron was actually telling the truth about them having sex in the sleep lab. Chase shrugs it off, saying that Cameron is only with him to make House jealous. Foreman asks why Chase is doing it, then. Chase just says, "You kidding?" and Foreman warns him not to hurt Cameron. Chase says that Cameron already has a big brother, which Foreman didn't even know about, since he doesn't care about Cameron; he cares about himself and his job and how it will be if they have to deal with a "heartbroken lovesick Cameron," who would be even "more unbearable" than Original Recipe Cameron. I love you, Foreman. At this point, the monitors go off and Emma goes into preterm labor.
The Cottages report back to Cuddy that they were able to stop the preterm labor and also get that biopsy, which was negative. So it's definitely mirror syndrome, and time to kill the baby-fetus. But wait! Cuddy says that preterm labor could be a new symptom. No, Foreman says; Emma's body is trying to get rid of the thing that's killing it, making Emma's body smarter than the brain it houses and all of Cuddy right now. Emma doesn't have time for any more tests, Foreman says: either they get rid of the fetus or she dies. At this point, I wonder if Emma's too far gone even to survive the abortion process. I mean, that's got to be a little traumatic for the body, right? Cuddy's solution is to "work faster." "Medicine doesn't work faster just because you hope real hard!" says Cameron. Well, she would know. She spent all of Season 1 trying it. Cuddy orders them to steroid the shit out of those fetus lungs and hope that they develop enough in the next, like, three minutes for them to be able look at them. Chase says that this will do long-lasting damage on the baby-fetus's organs, and Cameron says that it'll put Emma at risk for a pulmonary edema. Cuddy doesn't care, and when the Cottages don't support her, she goes off to do it herself. Well, at least she put her hair back for the procedure. I guess that's one less thing Emma has to worry about. Cuddy leaves the Cottages in her office to wonder what they're supposed to do now. "Somebody's gotta be Cuddy's Cuddy," says Foreman.
