Hmm. I found it less convoluted than usual. Instead of the usual pattern of bouncing around between random suspects and motives faster than House's team bounces between diagnoses, they followed a much straighter progression -- they spent most of the episode pursuing the diplomat, and even though he wasn't the guy, he was still connected, so they were on the right track.
