A CEO falls mysteriously ill just days before he signs a contract that would relocate his company's entire labor force to China. In a bid to restore funding to his department, House attempts to make an underhanded business transaction with his wealthy patient. However, when the patient's condition worsens, the team must work around the clock to save his life.
Meanwhile, Park (Charlyne Yi) prepares for her hearing with the Princeton Plainsboro Disciplinary Committee chaired by Foreman (Omar Epps), but it soon becomes clear to her that House's concerns for her future are based solely on the bet he has placed against her. Adams' (Odette Annable) outlook on her patient's business venture reveals her deeper feelings about loyalty. Meanwhile, House must once again contemplate an important choice - risk going back to prison or letting orthopedics get away with pranking him.
