Martinez is wheeled through a hospital on a stretcher while doctors shout doctory stuff. Peel tells someone not to start cancelling things on the president's schedule, but I think he's probably not going to be doing any photo ops in the immediate future. A doctor reports that Martinez has suffered a stroke, which is a much quicker diagnosis than House can ever manage. Well, if you don't count his numerous wrong guesses. And I guess he didn't really have a stroke, either. So I owe House an apology. Sorry, House! The doctor goes on to say that it's "an improbable case. Statistically and otherwise." I'm not sure what the non-statistical version of improbability is, but there you go.
Sterling goes into Martinez's room. Martinez asks him to come close (so he can rasp dramatically into his ear) and asks if Christina is there. She's five minutes away. I wonder where she's been. I mean, the Situation Room is in the same building that she lives in, so you'd think she could get to the hospital about as fast as everyone else. Sterling says the doctors are "cautiously optimistic," which is obvious nonsense. And Martinez calls him on it: "I can barely see, but I know you're lying. Whatever happens, you can't let Jarvis ascend to the presidency." He thinks that Jarvis did this to him, which is a belief he bases on the way Jarvis was acting. Sterling wants to know how Jarvis would have done this, but I think Martinez is too doped up and sick to present a good argument. He does manage to say that he saw that Jarvis was in the room before he got there. We see that Martinez's eyes are all bloodshot and scary-looking.
