  • 13 gets a lot of screen time again, surprise surprise.

    Clearly the only reason House being happy is because he slept with Cuddy. I am sick of the writers pushing Huddy so hard, whether it is Wilson or Cameron or the SWAT guy or whoever else. The scene at the end shows why they will never work together. House doesn't want to take the medicine if it risks interfering with his work while Cuddy wants happy House. A major sticking point between House and Cameron in season 1 is House thought Cameron just wanted to fix or change him. He now KNOWS Cuddy wants to change him.

    Taub's imitation of Foreman on his happiest and saddest days of his life was funny.

    So the only reason House can't walk is because his leg is in pain? What about the muscle he is missing? And the whole episode is about House getting rid of his pain and then he decides to go back on the Vicodin. They have been having a lot of episodes lately that set up new storylines only for nothing to change in the end.

    Again they tease us with getting rid of 13, even if it is just for the case. When was the last time they didn't mention her bisexuality, Huntington's, or teasing with getting rid of her? And of course she is the one to get close to the patient, got to give her as much screen time as possible.

    House expected Cuddy to give him a letter of recommendation but she wouldn't give Foreman a letter? I'm pretty sure House has done a lot worse things than Foreman.

    They already had dehydration get masked by other symptoms in the CIA episode.

    No Cameron and Chase again, twice now in three episodes. I guess Cameron being in 3 or 4 scenes last week used up her allotted time.
