My BIG BITCH OF THE WEEK!!!!!!!!
INFORMED CONSENT HAPPENED! CAMERON KILLED EZRA POWELL. HOUSE KNOWS IT.
No matter how much everybody acts like this never happened, it did. I know it. You know it. House knows it. Cameron knows. Every single scene that acts like it didn't is invalid.
This pisses me off as much or not more than everybody acting like Cuddy had nothing to do with the infarction or the surgery. It happened. Everything in their relationship hinges on that, not the fake "college one night stand" backstory.
And my new OTP, or at least cute couple of the week: Lucas/Chase....Where is the fic?
Lucas and Cuddy were actually cute too, but seriously, some snarky PI/guilty Chase? Helllllooooo. YUMYUMYUM.
Cameron had some great scenes. Showing back-bone. Smiling. And finally getting to kiss House goodbye. (Except of course that Informed Consent happened.)
Beautiful ending the House/Cam. Which sucks, but has a certain sad sweet quality, because it was there and it's nice to know they still acknowledge it. ETA-Extra pissiness for validating "Cameron wants to fix House." NO! That was part of it. That was never all of it. I'm convinced she wanted him to fix her as much as anything else.
Jen & Jesse continue to kick ass together and when they're done with this show I want them to get great parts somewhere else.
I love that House acted like a prick. This was old-school House. Perfectly willing to blow up people's lives for his own selfish purposes with no pretensions to niceness. Especially the ending. Nothing nice. That was an old school bastard. And I think (hopefully) the show is acknowledging it, and we'll never have to see any of this "nice" crap again. (I may not get a drug relapse, but at least I've got a bastard. That makes me happy.)
Wilson is back in his role as House/Cuddy cheerleader, which I hate, but it's still better than cringe-worthy emotional H/W fanservice. Now I can go back to my fanon where they're fucking, but Wilson is jealous because House is obsessing about the and Cuddy, ONLY because now he has competition. Subtext baby! It's fucked up, but it's way more H/W than "new and improved House" trying to be "NICE". FEH on NICE!
Go away Taub. Go away 13. I know I'm about to be stuck with you, but if it goes on for 100,000 years, you will never be "House's Old Team." NEVER. You will always be Newbies and you will always suck.
Patient: Kalvan Ryan redux. He's not a real patient, he's just a plot point who's there to be a comment on the Cam/Chase plot. And his symptoms are gross. Liver full of WORMS?????????????????
I supposed I should be happy they didn't show the worms.
