This week's House continued to delve into the personal lives of the new team as we got a look into Thirteen's destructive "I'm-going-to-die-anyway" behavior, including a a one-night stand with a woman apparently using Thirteen to get to House who she'd been trying to get to take her case for years. Tricky!
Even though Thirteen's personal storyline of dealing with Huntington's and her looming fate is pretty interesting, the best part of focusing on her life is the ridiculously inappropriate and hilarious things it makes House say. For instance, when Thirteen mentioned what the woman's previous doctor said about the case and House's response was, "Is that doctor in this room? (No.) Then I don't care what he thinks. Unless he is a she and she was in the room with the two of you last night - then I'm very interested."
Oh, House, you're so incredibly offensive. Yet as long as his team knows how to take it in stride and he hardly ever actually hurts someone's feelings, it's all fun and games.
It seems as if this case was going to change Thirteen's way of life to taking better care of herself rather than partying all night, taking drugs, and hooking up with random women, but as soon as the case was solved, she said she still felt empty as opposed to the connection she was starting to feel with the woman, and we saw her already hooking up with another stranger.
So does Thirteen need a connection with someone else with a fatal disease who will understand how she feels? It seemed as if when this was the case for the woman, Thirteen was feeling something that she needed, but when the case was solved and the woman wasn't in the same condition as Thirteen, Thirteen lost the connection entirely.
Perhaps she needs a good support group and this emptiness she's feeling will start to fill? Who knows. It seems like she definitely has a lot more to work through that we probably won't see much development on for a little while.
As for development we will see soon, we found out that Wilson's secret was not that he was dating a prostitute, but that he was helping Cuddy get approved for adopting a baby!
We've touched on the issue of Cuddy wanting a baby before, but now it looks like she's decided to make it happen, and House is not thrilled about it.
As noted in our House featured discussion this week, is this development just meant to bring us the next case of the mother of the baby Cuddy's meant to adopt, or is the point more to get House to finally move forward with his feelings for Cuddy?
It seems as if this could go either way at this point, but I would like to see more development for House and Cuddy after so many seasons of their flirtation. It doesn't seem like they could really be happy together, or that House could ever be happy with anyone including himself, but should the 'Huddy' issue be explored?
