Season 6 episode 7 - Known Unknowns

No thanks to baseball, we've been without House for 3 weeks now. The least I can say is that no one cares if the Yankees won another world series, no one likes the doping cheaters, but thankfully that's over and House is back. This episode was interesting to say the least, lets start with a quick recap.

There were 3 different stories happening at the same time.

The patient was a young teenage girl that fainted because of sever inflammation of her joints. House had a theory, which ended it being semi-correct, it ended up being one of the symptoms of what the girl had. The biggest problem was, there was so much inflammation in the girl's brain that she was incapable of telling the truth (not that House expected her to anyways). Later on, House has an epiphany while talking to Wilson and discovers that the girl has hemochromatosis. Feel free to read more about it on google health at the following link:

The second sub-story was Chase and Cameron's relationship and what was going on. Chase was still killing himself over what had happened with Dibala and had yet to tell Cameron about it (Thus effecting their relationship). Cameron continues to question why Chase is being so distant from her. She asks Foreman if he's having an affair, etc... Later on after the case came to a close, Chase decided to finally tell her that he was responsible for Dibala's death, and thus came the end of the episode.

The third and probably main sub-story of the episode was that House, Wilson and Cuddy all went out of town to a pharmaceutical conference. This sub-story in itself has 2 different sub-sub-stories. The first was House dealing with Wilson. Wilson was suppose to give a speech at the conference, House then finds the speech and discovers that Wilson is about to commit career suicide by admitting that he had euthanized a patient before in his career. We had met the patient earlier in the episode, but we didn't discover that was him until House decided to drug Wilson and to say his speech for him (under a different name). After fighting House for a while, Wilson later admitted how grateful he was to House for sharing his speech and preventing him from putting his career on the line. House was also, at the same time, trying to tell Cuddy that he cares for her. Cuddy, of course, was reluctant to accept his feelings - we discover later that its because she has started a relationship with Lucas (detective that House hired last season to investigate his team).

It was an interesting episode to say the least, for the first time ever in 6 seasons, we're seeing more and more of House's vulnerable side. His true feelings for Cuddy are coming out and in this episode, we see how far back they go. His care for his best friend Wilson are coming out and those were shown by how far he was willing to go to protect him, him medical license and his reputation. Even his feelings for his former team are coming out when he was trying to help Chase and Cameron in his own weird manipulative way. They're trying to show House as a changed person, but really they're just showing him as the person that we've known him to be all along. We've always seen these glimpses of House in previous episodes in previous seasons, but they were always masked by his antics. We can only wonder where the writers will go from here...

The next episode of House will air next Monday Nov 16th on Fox at 8pm.

As always, here is the preview:

House Season 6 Episode 3 - The Tyrant

Well let me start off by welcoming House back. Wow what an episode. We have evil, good and the always, make that usually sarcastic Dr. Greg House. As soon as the episode started and I got the first glance of James Earl Jones, the first thing I said to my wife was "all the trekkies are flipping out right now." Which I later realized that I shouldn't have said cause I was talking about myself, but back to House.

So James Earl Jones played an evil dictator named President Dibala, that was about commint genocide in his country in Africa. So there was a lot of animosity surrounding saving him (mostly from Dr. Cameron). Dr. Chase on the other hand, believed that he had to save him because it was his sworn duty to do no harm. In the mean time, House still doesn't have his medical lisence so the only thing he can do is offer his medical opinion and not go anywhere near the patient, meaning Foreman is still in charge. Of course there issues with him firing 13 the week prior and he's of course angry that House is back to replace him once again.

Chase later speaks with someone who tried to kill Dibala because of what he was about to do to the people back home, only gaining knowledge of what kind of dictator he really is. After doing so, Chase went and confronted Dibala, to which he confessed openly what he had planned when he got home.

Fast Forward...

Dibala dies due to a wrong diagnosis, that was brought on by a false test that pointed to sclerodoma. What we later find out after Foreman decides to do some digging, is that false test was falsified on purpose, by Chase, in order to stop Dibala from going home and killing all those people. Foreman confronts Chase, but then later decides to burn the evidence that incriminates Chase.

The whole time, House was having issues with Wilson's downstairs neighbor, but that was pretty boring, not typical House stuff that I don't wanna get into cause the rest of the story was more interesting. Besides, House's sarcasm during the differential was way more interesting and comforting since it reverts back to his usual format.

All together, I give this episode a huge thumbs up! it was a great, it was a step towards the House we know and Love. Lots of controversy and lots of questionable ethical decisions, this is what we all have grown to love about House.

Spoiler Alert!! Don't read on if you don't want to know!

According to sources, it looks like because of what happened at the end of this episode, in the near future, Jennifer Morrison who plays Dr. Allison Cameron is going to be leaving the show. We don't know why exactly, there has been a lot of speculation but none of them sound very reputable. This is what Katie Jacobs had to say about her leaving "The storyline begins after a visiting African dictator, played by James Earl Jones, receives a controversial treatment at Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital in the October 5 episode. “Cameron’s reaction [to the situation] is that she needs to separate from her husband and marriage and proximity from the hospital,” Jacobs explained."

The next episode of House will air next Monday on Fox at 8pm when a rich businessman brings his son, who's suffering from stomach pain, to Princeton Plainsboro, and believes he's a victim of his wealthy position and success.

House Season 6 Episode 2

Episode 2 was interesting to say the best. It's still not House as we've grown to know him and love him, but it was interesting. It was started off by House resigning and Foreman taking over the team, which he does a miserable job leading because Taub is doubting him and 13 is doing her own thing. House, on the other hand, starts suffering from worsening leg pain and starts taking cooking classes in order to distract himself from the pain.

Back at the hospital, Foreman struggles to figure out his patient's mysterious illness, so the patient becomes impatient and posts his medical records online and offers a $25,000 reward to the person who correctly diagnoses him. Foreman, of course, refuses to read through the people's responses online and decides to do his own thing, 13 on the other hand decides to go through the posts and discovers that one of them is correct and starts treating the patient with the correct treatment behind Foreman's back. Foreman then later discovers the illness and runs in, only to find out that the patient is already getting better and he knew nothing about it. Taub ends up quitting because he wanted to work under House, not Foreman, and then Foreman decides to fire 13 because it would be too difficult to be your hot girlfriend's boss.

At the very end, House is sitting with his psychiatrist and shows his a check that was written to him for $25,000. Proving that House was actually the mystery person online that figured out the illness that his former team was missing. He solved their case without them knowing, and confessed to the psychiatrist that this was the only thing that temporarily got rid of his leg pain. Meaning one thing, House is back as well all hoped and expected!

The episode itself was full of way too much drama (and yes I know its a medical drama, but there wasn't too much medical and way too much drama). But the way it ended made everyone excited for the next episode and probably the rest of the season. Writers are getting back on track slowly, hopefully they bring out House back.

This past week, House finished 5th overall in the ratings bringing in just over 17 million viewers. The only shows ahead of him were the 2 NCIS shows and Sunday night football.

Next episode will air next Monday at 8pm on Fox. As always, here is the preview:

Season 6 Premier

So last season we left Dr. House walking into the mental institution in order to go through his drug rehab to over come his vicodin addiction. Season 6 premiered unlike any other House episode ever, boring!!!

Wow! they took everything that we have grown to love about House and turned it upside down. They tried something similar to this in the season 3 premier and ended up resorting right back to normal House by episode 3. So if this is what they're doing again, then please lets get to it! Why is House sharing his feelings? why does he think he's broken? Since when does he actually believe enough in therapy to actually trust a psychiatrist? This is everything that we've known House not to be, and now he is after the first episode? COME ON!!

I get it, the writers are trying something new with the show, but for God's sake, don't take away House's essence, it made the show what it is today!

Here's a preview of episode 2 which will be airing next Monday at 8pm on Fox.

House Season 6 Spoilers

OK! so we last saw Dr. House walking into the mental institution. He was hallucinating seeing Amber, Kutner and having sex with Cuddy. Season 5 kind of left us with a pretty bitter taste in our mouths, so what should we expect of our favorite doctor for season 6. Here are some of the main spoilers that I've put together from various sources.

For those of you who are not into computers and the internet and aren't (or too lazy) to research and try and figure out what is about to happen or what they think is about to happen on season 6, here are some spoilers

So from here on out - SPOILER ALERT!

- The 2-hour Season 6 premier is going to start off right where season 5 left us, House walking into the mental institution. (where House debuts his partially shaved head).

- The first few episodes (or more) will be surrounding House in the mental institution. Of course he will think he is well enough to go back to work and his doctor will of course disagree. While back at the plantation house (Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital) Foreman is in charge of the team, and obviously everyone will be second guessing him as well as second guessing themselves.

- Wilson's love life will be further explored this season, according to Robert Sean Leonard (Dr. Wilson), his love life this season will be "anything but non-existent"

- And finally, of course, what's going to happen with Huddy? Well since Cuddy and House never did actually have sex, apparently now there is still a chance that they're going to get together this season.

Now I will repeat myself, these are UNCONFIRMED spoilers from other that I've put together for everyone to read and think about.

Check out the most recent previews for the upcoming season 6 which will premier on Sept 21st at 8pm on Fox
