I've long wondered if Foreman's brother Marcus was someone we'd eventually meet on 'House.' That being said, it's been six and a half seasons and even though we'd heard bits and pieces about him, I had reconciled that he just wasn't going to show up. If anything, the timing felt a little odd.
But if you think about it, the entire plot featuring Marcus (Orlando Jones) was just about as generically evergreen as plots on 'House' get -- this could've fit into any previous season had the writers felt like telling this story sooner. I wish they had, especially if you consider the fact that after all the cast shake-ups this show has been through, Foreman has been one of the few constants. It's about time we found out more about the guy.
We've long known about Marcus's criminal history, his battle with drugs, and that he and Eric stole a car when they were teenagers. But it took Marcus actually showing up at Princeton Plainsboro (after he got out of jail) to illuminate what that all did, and meant, to Eric. Ever since the grand theft auto charge, Eric's entire life has been about never disappointing his mother like he did that day.
