As always this is one big season six spoiler, if you want to watch the episode and not know what happens already, stop reading.
House MD Season Six continues with episode three, “The Tyrant”. I’m happy to say we appear to be seeing more of some old faces as Cameron and Chase re-join the diagnostic team in season six episode three. With Taub quitting and Thirteen fired someone had to fill the new diagnostic team, who better than our old House MD favorites?
House MD episode three, “The Tyrant” begins as House attempts to just waltz back in and take back his old job after realizing he needs to practice medicine in House MD Season six episode two “Epic Fail”. Naturally, Foreman who has just fired his girlfriend Thirteen to be in control of the diagnostic team is not to pleased. Cuddy settles the argument with simple logic; House does not have a medical license still, so Foreman remains “in charge” and House sits in and offers advice without interacting with patients or doing any procedures.
Season six, episode three is more of a moral dilemma than a medical challenge as the team is brought an African politician who is known for his genocidal tactics and desire to rule through fear.
Meanwhile Wilson is having problems with his down stairs neighbor are disabled Vietnam veteran who feels House’s cane makes far too much noise and his cooking stinks, literally the smell is bothering the neighbor nuts. Surprisingly this neighbor is almost a bigger jerk than House due to phantom pain in his amputated arm.
House attempts to “fix” the problem between Wilson and the neighbor and of course only makes things worse. After breaking in (the maid left the door open) to the neighbor’s house, House is given the choice to move out of Wilson’s apartment or the neighbor will press charges.
Back at the hospital Chase is told by a man pretending to be a patient of President Dibala, or the patient’s evil deeds. The man pleads with Chase to let the President die. Chase refuses and the man attempts to assonate the patient. Chase stops the attempt, but it fuels the president’s paranoia.
Sensing Cameron’s distaste for him and his political methods the president dares her to kill him stating that an air bubble in his IV would be no trouble. The patient feels Cameron and most human beings lack the courage to take action of their beliefs. In this case Cameron confirms his opinion by not killing the patient.
Going back to what’s up with House in House MD season six, episode three “The Tyrant” when he’s not helping to try and cure President Dibala he’s trying to cure his down stairs neighbor problem. With his back against a wall House really does break into the man’s apartment, drugs him, and then ties him up. Only to cure the pain in the neighbor’s arm of course causing the grumpy, jerk happiness and gaining House the ability to stay at Wilson’s in season six.
As episode three approaches its end the patient’s condition declines. Foreman changes his medication after a blood test from Chase confirms a different diagnosis than expected. However rather than saving the patient as we normally see in House MD, the president dies in reaction to the treatment.
At first Foreman is left unsecure as if he has made the wrong choice, but then he discovers Chase stole blood from the morgue to fake the test and intentionally gave the wrong treatment to kill the patient.
Season six. “The Tyrant” ends after Foreman confronts Chase and confirms that Chase did indeed intentionally kill President Dibala to “save millions”. Foreman then burns the proof he had found of Chase’s action and season six, episode three ends.
