House M.D. Loses Jennifer Morrison

Published 6 years ago by , Updated August 14th, 2013 at 4:16 pm,

News on the street says that Jennifer Morrison, who plays Cameron on Fox’s House M.D., has filmed her last scene for the show earlier this week. That scene will air in November.

Details are sketchy but it’s said that she didn’t quit but that her exit was a creative decision made by the producers.  Dang, that gets me wondering about Cameron and Chase…

Details or odd clues from this scenario are:

  • She was not at the show’s premiere screening in Hollywood
  • Cameron will not be killed off
  • Chase is not leaving the show
  • The door is open for guest appearances

It’s all odd, considering she didn’t quit.  I’m curious if she ticked someone off somewhere in the food chain above her?

I’m not sure I’ll miss her, but you best enjoy Cameron’s presence while you can, House fans.

  1. Right! I forgot about that mention of the two colleagues!

  2. No worries, Leech. (Hee — your full user name cracks me up. Nice.)

    Seriously, it was such a quick reference, if I’d coughed in that moment, I would have missed it, because they never went back to the topic again.

    You’d think they would have concentrated on that a bit more, given how both those deaths affected him so strongly. (Plus, the death of his own father last season must have had some effect, whether or not House was willing to face it.) I hope they’ll continue to show House talking about these things in therapy, because they are key moments that contributed to House’s nightmare delusion, suffered in last season’s finale. Like Joshi pointed out, that doesn’t get fixed by a couple of anti-depressants and a few sessions in talk therapy. These things take time. I want them to address all these things that they set up last season, even if House resists at first, which would make sense given his difficult personality — you cannot change overnight, and some parts of your personality never change, even if the rest gets better and generally more happy/pleasant. House will never be a cheery person. It seems he’s always been a sarcastic, moody sort of guy. That is the foundation of his character. But that doesn’t mean he can’t evolve and become more well-rounded emotionally.

    I’m curious to see where the writers are going with him this year. And now with this news about Jennifer’s character leaving, I’ll be very curious to see how they approach that, given that her character is married to Chase but he is staying on the show. Hmm.

    “they’d know that anyone whos anyone thats taken drugs is always addicted to them.”

    I’ve known people who have been and are now no long addicted to drugs. And I’m talking stuff like herione or oxycontin. Granted, were they ever to take the stuff again, there’s a good chance they’d relapse, but the trick is simply not taking it again and most of the people I know have been perfectly able to lead happy lives without even hardly thinking about the stuff any more.

    and id bet you if your friends were ever alone in a room with a bottle of vicodin the THOUGHT may pass through their heads. thats what i was trying to get at. any addict is always an addict no matter how long they have been sober for. once they even think about it its a struggle.

    take cake.. if you ate cake every day and was forced to give it up because it makes your teeth hurt and someone sat you in a room with a big ol cake youd have a thought whether its “damn that looks tasty…..” or ” must not grab fork” your brain is still proccesing it because it will always be an ADDICTION…

    how do i know this CUZ I WAS AN ADDICT.

  4. Again, it’s the difference between a mental addiction and a full body addiction. Pure will power alone can usually help deal with a mental addiction. Sit yourself down in a room with a bottle of vicodin or a cake or heroine and, were you addicted to it before, you’ll crave it for the effects it can give you, but you’ll always have the willpower to stop yourself from going that far again. This is why former alcoholics are still able to go out to bars filled with people getting drunk and yet still have a good time with just orange juice.

    What House had though was a full body addiction, something his body not only craved, but needed so that he didn’t get the withdrawal symptoms. This is totally different and is a problem he is no longer plagued with. Yes, he may, in his mind still crave the stuff, but he knows where that leads now and can fight it.

  5. I do not know which way the series will take, but I think when making decisions are very wrong.
    Cameron is a strong character, who always confronted House, unlike Cuddy and Wilson, who always seemed complacent parents of your child spoiled.
    Ratings of the premiere of Broken = 16.50 million viewers ….
    In 23/11 Ignorance is Bliss (after output Jennifer) 11.88 million ….
    It seems that many fans are giving up the series!
    I for one, has quit.

    Do you do this every time a major character leaves a show? Only, this seems very much like it was Jennifer Morrisons choice, and if that’s so, it should be respected. Also I’m not sure what you’re trying to say with those ratings, the season pilot didn’t even have Cameron in it.
