Some thoughts from last night’s episode:
Maybe I missed the announcement, but what is up with FOX and television episodes involving sunken slave ships? Last Thursday’s episode of Bones had one and this week’s House episode now had one. I’m not sure if they had a similar theme with other shows; mainly because these are the only two I watch on this network (with the exception of the occasional Simpsons episode).
Once again, I would like to applaud the writers for their efforts to give us the old House back. The fact he would walk into a room with a patient who is infected with small pox in an effort to prove the diagnosis wrong is the type of thing that made me a fan of the show in the first place. He lost that contempt for the rules along the way but seems to have gotten it back.
And, even though I never thought this would be the case, I love the drama playing out between House and Cuddy. Like House, she got soft and pretty much let him get away with murder. Now that they are a couple, she has become much more of a road block for him; something the show has been missing since getting rid of Vogler in season one.
I have a feeling this relationship is doomed; at least for the time being and wouldn’t be surprised to see Cuddy become his ex-girlfriend next season. Oh, and for the record, I still think him and Sam would make the perfect couple; both because of their personalities and because it would put a strain on his friendship with Wilson.
Speaking of Wilson, it was good to see him in more than a five minute appearance. But, that part where he hinted that he wanted to have a baby with Sam at the end seemed a bit forced to me.
I didn’t like the new girl, Masters, at first. But, I have to admit she’s growing on me a bit. She still reminds me a lot of Cameron. But, unlike Cameron, she does stick up for herself and her strong sense of moral value contradicts House perfectly. If it were up to me, I would say keep her and get rid of Taub when Thirteen comes back.
