So House returned last night and to quote Gregory House, M.D. himself: "Don't . . . don't!"
When the writers titled this episode "What Next?" they had no idea how apt those particular words were. Only I would be saying it sarcastically, while pulling at my hair.
I watch House in part for the medical mysteries and in part for Hugh Laurie's snappy, wise ass delivery as the sure-to-be-sued-in-real-life acerbic doctor. I do not watch it for 40+ minutes of relationship angst and bullshit.
I have never liked House and Cuddy together. Let them flirt and dance around the issue but having them "finally" hook up is a big mistake. Cuddy is House's supervisor. Even before they did the nasty, she was already giving him preferential treatment and deferring to his opinions. How is that going to go now?
My favorite relationship of the show has always been the bromance between House and Wilson and Wilson was relegated to a cameo last night. What the . . . ? Robert Sean Leonard deserves better and the fans deserve better.
And while the 13 drama was kept to a minimum, she was once again the "starring" underling, having more screen time than Foreman, Chase and Taub. Enough already!
So I think it goes without further delay to state that I absolutely hated this episode with the fire of a thousand suns.
Is there a doctor in the House? I am wondering.
