For lack of time, I'm not going to comment on all the interesting points you've made, Dakotagirl, so I'll just refer to your last 2 questions
|I sometimes wonder if House's insights into relationships/infidelity was learned from studying his parents. It could be possible that at one point in their marriage, John or Blythe had an affair without the other knowing about it. House may have found out but was told not to say anything.|
I really don't see anything that can support this theory from the information we got so far. I feel it's not so likely - his mother seems to me to be the kind of woman who married young to her highschool boyfriend and never dared thinking about other men. And his father? - "the insane moral compass" ? - he may have thought about it, but he is such a man of honor and rules that once again I find it unlikely. But as House fans we can't ignore the power of deducting by intuition , so you may end up to be right after all!
|And one final thing that I am curious about-Is House really John's son? I suppose it is biologically possible to two brown-eyed people to have a blue eyed child. What got me thinking about this was the episode, Paternity, where House was so obsessed with getting a DNA sample from the boy's parents because didn't think that the father was bioligicall the father based upon the eye color of the parents. It turned out that the boy was adopted. Could House be adopted as well?|
From the copy I have of Daddy's Boy - House's father has blue eyes, so your theory that he may be adopted because they both have brown eyes doesn't seem to be corret, unless I'm seeing it wrong? Even if they both had brown eyes, I think there's always a chance the child can have blue eyes if one of the grandparents on two sides had blue eyes. I think that when House obssesed about it in Paternity, he just used it as a reason because he had a hunch but needed to give a more rational explanation to his stuff and to Wilson. But I may be wrong about that.
In any case, I believe if there was even the slightest option for that, House would be the first to explore it eagerly! I think that was probably his childhood dream - to find out his abusing father is not really his father - and I'm sure he checked it out again and again over the years....
But thinking about his father reminded me of his question when they were in the cafeteria on DB - "any new babes you want to tell me about?"- and his mother tells him "leave him alone, John". It seems like a routine: his father tries to communicate with him by "men talk", which House resents, and his mother tries to smooth things between them. It's definitely not the type of family who would have an open discussion on things like love or sex, or anything else for that matter. hmm. Still a lot to discover...
