House First Look: Are They Killing Off [Spoiler]?

Good thing Fox renewed House when it did, or else these photos of Dr. Crankypants knocking at death’s door would take on a whole new level of urgency. Of course, that’s not to say House’s latest health emergency isn’t cause for alarm.

D’oh!

That’s one of two major surprises the episode delivers. The other involves a baby bombshell I first teased in this week’s Ask Ausiello. Basically, someone’s gonna be a first-time daddy — and that someone is unmasked in the second clip below.

Spoilerphobes, head to the nearest exit. Everyone else press play!
