It took this long to decide if I had anything worth saying. I do but it's not very much. Regarding F/C/C & PoTW-I DON'T CARE. OK, Chase had some cute moments and Foreman was a prick, but really...don't care.
I now a lot of people, especially H/W slashers loved the whole dosing each other thing. I have issues. Mostly with Wilson.
First the whole amphetamine thing.
RSL doing the over-the-top high on speed thing: priceless. Not even arguing the point. I hope to god there are bloopers from those scenes on the Season 3 DVD.
The plot ethics--not so great, but House's ethics have always been fairly precarious and were downright scuzzy this week, so what the hell. And how much do I love Hugh doing the "coke on teeth" move.
More evidence of House's druggie past along with "I know my way around a razor blade," and the fact that he knows where to get LSD on short notice and the very proficient use of a hypodermic needle we've seen in "Distractions" and "Who's Your Daddy."
Questions Did Wilson drive to Casa House while high (no doubt setting a -haha-speed record) or did he have the sense to take a cab? Because that scene took place at Casa House, not House office right? And how come he was home already? Just so they could do the scene on that set?
Hubby the nurse was pretty upset with House and agreed with Wilson's "I could have had a heart attack."
Slashy analysis of "It's personal." "How long as it been personal?"
I know the obvious is that Wilson is thiiiiiisssssss close to admitting his love for House to the object and this week, I'm back to thinking it's still possible. OK, maybe admitting it, but not to House. I have this weird last scene of last ep of season thing in my head where somehow he and (forgive me) Cameron are in some kind of situation and she's saying "I still love him," and Wilson says, (or maybe just mouths) "Me too.
On the other hand, the response "How long has it been personal," can either reflect House's weird obsession with knowing everything about Wilson, or the "Histories" argument that he wants to know about everyone, or just the idea that Wilson is not confiding in House as much, which would be a good thing if it meant Wilson were growing a pair. IF ONLY.
Also, in the same way that the writers generally fudge the issue of House's pain vs actual addiction, I thought the dialogue made it unclear as to whether "It's personal" referred to the mood disorder/chemical imbalance, itself or a triggering event and therefore fudged the issue of whether Wilson was diagnosed as clinically depressed or is just bummed out over his fucked up life. I know I'm not making myself clear either, but having read a lot of metas and online discussions of this, I just wish I knew what the writers were trying to tell us about Wilson.
I do know this much, he hasn't learned ANYTHING about House in the last 20 or so episodes because he's still trying to FIX him and I promise you, Wilson, that will come back to bite you on the butt and not in a good way.
The first couple of times I watched the Perabo scene at the end, I thought House was accepting that he did like what the Antidepressants were doing and was going to stay on them.
Then I really heard him say..."Because this friend of mine thinks I'm miserable," (or whatever it was.) And then Perabo, brushes all that aside and thinks it's awesome that he's on drugs and screwing around. I kind of agree, although I've already placed her up there with stalker!chick and SRV in terms of female characters I don't need or like. Gimme dwarf!mom or wheelchair!babe.
Remember how much I didn't want the Ketamine to work? Well I don't want anti-depressant House either. The brooding is as much a part of the character as the limp. Yes, it's my innter Cameron coming out.
And speaking of Cameron...I don't care about her FCC interactions, but what up with the Casa House invasion? We know she knows how to get in from "Half-Wit," but House didn't seem especially disturbed.
This weeks Paranoid Bitching of a Paranoid Bitch: (Assuming Wilson isn't coming bounding or creeping out of a closet in the last ep of the season.)
Cam showed up because House didn't answer the phone. She had no reason to assume he was up to anything as dire as MLC, but she was concerned enough to come in the apartment and the bedroom. This is Wilson territory, the way coming over in MLC was. I think TPTB know the only way to set up a House/Cam anything in season 4 is to give Cameron some of the care-taker function that Wilson currently does, has obviously done since the infarction, that binds them together.
I felt it when she was the one to do the bandaging of the cuts in MLC and I felt it here. Obviously it would make her relationship with House as fucked up as Wilson's is, but we (some of us, at least I) embrace that fucked-uppedness. Clearly we would reject it with H/Cam, but I'm not sure David&Katie get that.
P.S. Dear God in heaven is there anything more adorable than Hugh as House smiling?
Enough mishegas for now. Let's see what Tuesday has in store.
