House returns to PPTH to diagnose Dibala with scleroderma. He cites Dibala's nice, tight skin as a symptom. That might also just be a symptom of black don't crack, though, House. Foreman likes blastomycosis, a fungal infection, instead. Chase agrees with Foreman, but then says they didn't see the fungal lesions on the head CT that would indicate Foreman's diagnosis, so I don't know what he's talking about. Cameron says they can try something crazy called a "test" on Dibala for some antibodies that would indicate scleroderma, but Foreman nixes that, saying the test is not conclusive and Dibala's fever is too high right now to wait on silly test results anyway. They have to pick one diagnosis and treat Dibala for it. If they pick the wrong one, he'll die. Of course. House looks to Cameron for support of his diagnosis, but she says she doesn't really care about Dibala. House tells her that if she's going to be here and work on Dibala's case, then she needs to get over her personal feelings and do her freaking job. Foreman should have told Cameron that already, but he was too busy with Hadley. Cameron takes a stand for blastomycosis, then gives House a childish "ha ha" look, having obviously only agreed to Foreman's diagnosis to stick it to House. House threatens to go to Cuddy, but Foreman reminds him that he's in charge and this is his call to make. He orders Chase and Cameron to treat Dibala for blastomycosis.
Cameron prepares to inject Dibala's IV with the medicine when he grabs her wrist and tells her that since she's so dead set on killing him, she might as well go ahead and do it right now with her own hands by putting an air bubble in Dibala's IV instead of telling his advisors things that will cause them to revolt and kill him. Whoops! I guess Dibala's memory loss thing went away, and also Ntila is a tattletale. And why is the camera out of focus right now? We finally get a face on camera and not chopped off the side of the frame, and it's all blurry. Why. Dibala says that killing people isn't so easy when you have to do it yourself. I guess he would know. Cameron thinks for a minute, then injects the medicine, air-bubble-free, into the IV. "Allison," Chase speaks up. Oh. I guess they would call each other by their first names now, huh? Cameron tells Dibala that apparently when it comes down to it, she doesn't want him to die after all. Well, she just got told. By a third world dictator with the blood of thousands and perhaps millions on his hands. That's not easy. Chase tells Dibala that if he lays a hand on his wife again, he will personally kick him out of PPTH. Honestly, that would probably be a favor for Dibala. Speaking of favors, Dibala thinks he did one for Cameron by showing her "her true character," which is "too weak to act on her beliefs." I'm sure she's out in the hallway feeling really grateful for that gift right now, Dibala. He says most people are that weak. Like his advisors and Ntila, who are always telling him to be diplomatic and sign stupid treaties and promise not to hurt people while letting his enemies run around free and clear and plot his assassination. Those enemies, by the way, are the Southern people. Dibala says Chase couldn't possibly understand, since all he has for an enemy is "some younger physician who covets your office." Um, younger? Chase is like fifteen. They don't get much younger than that. Dibala says that his enemies want to kill him and his world is full of bloodshed. "That makes you a man. And men make choices," he says. Chase asks what those choices are. Dibala won't go into specifics, but it's pretty obvious that those Southern people are not going to have a good time when he returns. If he returns.
