Lynne was supposed to be driving to a hockey game with Zach when Zach told her he had forgotten his stick. She went back and found Jeff trying to commit suicide. She told Zach to stay in the car and called 911.
Lynne was originally very supportive of the doctors, and was always upset when her husband made further attempts. However, after the doctors kept hitting dead ends, she realized their work was pointless. She asked House to discharge her husband so that he could go home to die.
