“Bombshells” is the fifteenth episode of the seventh season of the American medical drama House, originally airing on March 7, 2011 – and part of it plays out like a classic horror movie.
“Bombshells” is one of the more creative and unique episodes of House that I’ve seen so far; however, I’m a recent House convert and haven’t been watching the show for more than a few months. As a horror fan, my favorite part of the episode was the nightmare sequence that had Dr. House fighting scary, rotting, cannibalistic, zombie versions of his medical staff at the teaching hospital in some sort of a nightmarish, post-apocalyptic setting. Dr. House even brandished a special axe version of his cane with its own retractable blade, which he handily used to decapitate the first zombie. Then he whipped out a shotgun component which transformed his cane into a functioning shotgun, which Dr. House then used to take care of the remaining zombies. Excellent!
