Hadley's at Foreman's apartment. He apologizes for not telling her he was taking time off, but he needs time alone. That's how he deals with bad things. This hurts Hadley's feelings, and she clenches her jawbone in sadness and tries not to cry.
Cuddy just can't give up, so she goes to see House again, only to find him reading through Kumar's email account, which he hacked into thanks to Kumar's lack of imagination with passwords. Wilson seems to have filled Cuddy in on House's latest theory, as she says that Kumar wasn't murdered. House thinks the man who killed Kumar's original parents had something to do with it, as he's coming up for parole soon and Kumar has testified at all of his parole hearings before. How does a guy who killed two people in front of their young child get any parole hearings? Cuddy says Kumar shot himself with his own gun and cops found all the necessary gunshot residue to close the case. Cuddy gives up and starts to leave, but House says that she didn't come here to check up on his patient because she's been checking on her to make sure he's still doing his job. House thinks she wants to transfer the case to another doctor (who? Cameron, I guess? She's the only doctor left on staff who isn't otherwise occupied) but thinks it's the only thing keeping him together. If that's true, then Cuddy should really transfer the case. She's supposed to look out for her patients' best interests above everything else. And if she was good at looking out for her employees, they wouldn't be killing themselves.
Yvette is seizing on the ground. Apparently, she broke into the nearest medicine cart and ate every pill she could find. Hadley guesses she was trying to look worse so her husband's condition would improve, but Taub knows that she was trying to kill herself in order to donate her heart to Meat. Because you know what's better than a heart from a body that died from organ failure of unknown origin? A heart from a body that died from a freaking drug overdose while it was also suffering from organ failure of unknown origin. But at least Yvette's reasons for trying to die are well-documented, so House won't go off on another wild noose chase.
