Meanwhile, it's been three minutes and the Cottages haven't found anything in their scan of Penelope's heart. Chase wants to "start her back up," but Hadley argues that it's worth risking brain damage to get the information they need. Oh really? Because I have a feeling Penelope would disagree. And even more important than both of these things, apparently, is arguing about it, since that's what Hadley's doing instead of looking at the scans. Fortunately, Taub and Foreman are still on the job and Foreman sees a shadow near Penelope's aorta. Chase stops the scan before Foreman can get much more information.
CTB is bumming out on the floor of House's office. He tells her she's only upset because she knows the insulin shock will work and then she'll be gone. Except that would mean that House is psychotic, so she'd just come back eventually, right? And then House will have to keep putting himself into insulin shock to get rid of her? I still don't get it. He shoots himself up while Chase zaps at Penelope over and over again. They'd better hope they get her back, or else someone is in trouble. House's vision starts to go. He smiles. I guess insulin shock is fun. Or maybe he's happy because CTB seems to be fading away, and in a really cool way where she's sort of sliding backwards into his office wall. Hooray for this show using cool camera tricks correctly! As Penelope comes back to life, House seizes all over the floor. And here comes Wilson to save him. You know, he really should have just let House die and finished his dinner. That'd teach him a lesson.
After the break, House is resting comfortably in his coma in some random area of the hospital. He wakes up, and Wilson is at his side to be pissed off. House doesn't care, because he's so happy that CTB appears to be gone for good. Yes, it's always a real mood-lifter when you find out that you're insane. House also notices that his pants are missing, although his T-shirt and watch are still on, so what was Wilson up to while House was unconscious, hmm? House has trouble remembering how to zip up his fly, but other than that seems none the worse for wear after his 34,542,034,524th near-death experience. He accuses Wilson of being disappointed that this worked since it means House won't have to detox off Vicodin. Or maybe Wilson is bummed that his friend has schizophrenia. If that's even what this means, which I still don't really know. House's pager goes off and he's back to work. How is any of this even allowed to happen? I know Wilson is the head of oncology or whatever, but can he really just sneak hospital employees into random patient areas to be treated for their self-inflicted comas? Where is Cuddy during all of this? Oh, nevermind -- even if she did know, all she'd do is allow it while making sad and concerned faces.
