You Ask, We Answer: ‘House’ Season 7 ‘Office Politics’ & ‘A Pox On Our House’

Published 3 years ago by , Updated October 25th, 2010 at 4:03 pm,

Q: Someone told us Huddy has a fallout from a decision. Does this mean they have an argument?
I’d say that’s an incorrect representation of what happens. It’s far more important (read: detrimental) than that. There is no argument.

Q: More tension, more dramas than the previous eps?
A: Yes, very much so. With Huddy, the POTW, the team and Amber Tamblyn’s character. Three members of House’s team understand how jail changes people, from personal experience. Plus. House uses an live sex website to help with his diagnosis.

Q: Any sign of house taking drugs? He doesn’t seem to be limping as much these days.
A: Nope, no signs of House relapsing. Although, after his new invention of “pork apple cider,” he just might. icon wink You Ask, We Answer: House Season 7 Office Politics & A Pox On Our House

Q: What is going on with Wilson and Sam?
A: In “A Pox On Our House,” Wilson and Sam are forced to spend more time together than what was originally planned and Sam becomes Wilson’s new (albeit temporary) assistant.

Q: What can you tell us about Huddy?
A: In “Office Politics,” House is forced to make a decision that impacts his relationship with Cuddy. Luckily, Wilson is there to provide advice to House.

Q:I want to ask about the case and if it relates to any Huddy development in the 2 episodes. Do we get any romantic scenes? Like kissing???
A: Yes, both cases result in some Huddy development. One good, one very bad. No romantic scenes

Q:How is Martha Masters connected to Taub?
Martha is medical student and Taub wasn’t always in the current occupation that we see him in, or a plastic surgeon. He has a certain academic background.

Q: As a huddy fan…Will I be happy, sad, or confused after ep6?
A: Hmm… indifferent. It’s very complicated, but it doesn’t end happy.

Q: How does Amber Tamblyn fit in the team? I´ve been told she is pretty awesome.
A: She is very awesome. She works well with everyone and has no problem fighting with House or backing him up.

Q: Does House do something to really do something to compromise the relationship with Cuddy?
A: Yes, in both episodes… in very different ways.

Is there anything with Chase in these episodes?
A: Indeed. Chase becomes a little tougher (and smelly) after a night in lock-up

Q: Do you think Huddy will be ok after these episodes?
A: Hmm… I’m not sure. Perhaps.

Q: More House/Rachel interaction in upcoming eps?
A: Sadly, no.

Q: Since Martha Masters is only a med student, does the show have a good explanation for Cuddy’s decision to put her on House’s team besides the fact that she’s a genius?
A: As with House, Cuddy knows potential when she sees it.

Q: Any Amber/Cuddy scenes?
A: Yes, two great scenes in episode 6.

Q: Do you see the begining of the end of Huddy in this episodes?
A: Possibly, but I don’t really think so.

Q: Is Martha a doppelganger of Cameron in terms of her ethical values and challenging House?
A: In some ways, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know when an idea is good – ethical or not.

Q: Which songs (if any) are featured in those two episodes?
No songs particularly stood out. These were also rough cuts, so the songs will probably be changes (as they were for the season premiere, sadly)

Q: Any fallout from the Rachel ate a dime thing from the previous episode to the Huddy relationship?
A: No

Q: Any hint about the critical decision House has to make in “Office Politics”?
A: It’s a decision that we’ve seen House make many times before, but this time the consequences are much greater.

Q: Is the Huddy fallout from these episodes work-related or something else?
Yes and Yes.

Q: Will be House in danger (I mean physically)?
A: Yes, very much so.

Q: Is the “Huddy fallout” related to House’s decision to put his own life in jeopardy in order to cure the patient?
A: No

Q: Does Lisa have any scenes that let her shine as an actress?
A: Yes, the last scene of episode 6 and many scenes in episode 7

Q: Any Cuddy/Wilson scenes?
A: Unfortunately, no.

Q: What do you mean detrimental? Is this something that can break House and Cuddy up or is it detrimental to the hospital and their work relationship?
A: Both

Q: Please tell me that Martha is not as annoying as Cameron because the characters look pretty similar.
A: Martha is not annoying at all. She’s great and amazing.

  1. All above questions have been answered.

  2. House and Cuddy dance in one of the episode, do you know the song? Can you tell us?

  3. You said Cuddy loves Martha. Is there any indication that Cuddy knows Martha on a personal level?

  4. How Martha interacts with Cuddy?? she sees her as role model?

  5. I really enjoy the this show and have found that putting House and Cuddy together has made House interesting again. Several of my friends who had stopped watching are starting to get into the show again because he actually seems to be growing. So my question is, in episode six and seven do we see some good character growth or new insights into House? How about insights or growth in Cuddy or Wilson?

    Also, I am very intrigued about the new character played by Amber Tamblyn and wonder if watching her and House interact brings anything new to his character as well? Or is it simply an amusing interplay between two different personalities?

  6. so, am i getting your hints right, that House and Cuddy’s relationship still has hope and that their relationship is not failing at the end of these episodes? They are still together right. Also is the thing that house does that hurts Cuddy so damaging that its almost unrepairable?

    Thanks for answering all these questions, it helps me with my tv nerves.

  7. Thanks so much for doing this. It wa a cool thing for you to do.
    Glad to hear Lisa had some scenes to show her talent.
    Loaded question and you don’t even have to say who says it:

    What was the most touching line? You can even reword it to hide identities. Please??

  8. Did House lie to Cuddy in Episode 6~?
    Is that the decision House made involve this lie??

  9. thanks a lot… I’ve an other question to ask: is everything happens in the episode 6 or that an impression ? is the episode 7 better than the 6th ?

  10. Interesting. Do you think they’ll keep Amber Tamblyn’s character around for a while?

  11. Any clue of what House is doing that may put his life on risk? Please

  12. Does Cuddy have to do anything that requires her to protect House?

  13. By “Lisa Edelstein is the one who shines” you mean that we’re gonna see this one dramatic face of hers she does in every serious scene again? Can’t wait.

  14. Just a quick question to finally stop all this negative speculations about Huddy.. By the end of Epi 7, they are still together, right? That’s all I need to know for me to be relieved.. hehe, SALAMAT [THANKS]..

    • not all speculations can/have to be good ones, especially of the outcome looks sketchy. but Huddy is still together after 7×7, so relax and just enjoy the show.

  15. Does Taub know Martha because she’s an ex-mistress (hug!), because she’s an ex-patient of his surgical practice, (it would be fun to learn that she used to be a dude or something) or is she his long-lost daughter (god please no !) ?
    Those are the only possibilities I can think of.

    • He interviewed her for Hopkins.

  16. Did Robert Sean Leonard’s daughter played Cuddy’s daughter in some of the earlier episodes – “Known Unknows” and “5 to 9″.

    The little girl looks quite like him? Will be interesting to know!



  17. PLEASE do you know if House will have a run in with Lucas in the near future? House stayed Lucas’s (sort of) friend when he was dating Cuddy… do you know if House and Lucas’s relationship will have any major swan song, or continuation?

  18. Will there be some new House merchandise available soon? (i.e. shirts, magnets, cups, etc…) If so when and where can I get it at? or if I missed the boat and they are already available where can I go to see them?

  19. I just watched tonight episode with house and cuddy and I see what I mean about their possible relationship problem. I was wondering do you think this means that Cuddy will no longer be all in or that she now she questions the possibility of her really being together with house? or does it bother her more that her hopes of his changing (his core) is who he really is so she is unsure if she really wants to be with him? Do youthink that she was disilluisioned tonight about their future together? Do you intend to keep them together?

  20. Does the look that Masters gives while cuddy and house are arguing about Masters staying and Cuddy refuses to let Maters quit. Is that laugh a manipulating one or something else. For example, just her smiling at the two characters interaction or appreciating cuddys siding with her, or is she just trying to see how far she can push both characters or what she can get away with?

  21. What does Taub says to Masters at the end of there discussion in the locker room, I just can’t pick iti up

    • He asks if it ‘Is this Grandmas tea cozy?’ in reference to House asking Masters if her Grandma gave her a cruddy tea cozy for x-mas would she lie and tell her Grandma she liked it. Taub is asking if Masters is lying to him to be nice and spare his feelings.

    • Next time you cannot make out what is being said, try turning on CC (closed captioning), this assuming you can rewind the video to the spot you are attempting to decipher…

  22. what does Taub say to Masters at the end of the locker room conversation where Masters reveals to Taub that she remembers him from the Hopkins interview?

    I can’t make out what Taub is saying!!

  23. “is this grandma’s tea cozy?” referencing house/masters conversation about lying earlier in episode

    • Could someone explain what “Is this Grandma’s tea cozy ?” means to a non native English speaker ?

      • Taub asks Masters ‘Is this Grandmas tea cozy?’ because House asked Masters earlier in the episode if her Grandma gave her a cruddy tea cozy for Christmas would she lie and tell her Grandma she liked it. Taub is asking Masters if she is lying to him in order to be nice and spare his feelings.

        • Thanks spark chick! for your answer.

    • Yes. Taub is essentially asking Masters if she is lying to him in order to spare his feelings.

  24. Do you know who wrote the episode Office Politics? The new character is named Martha M. Masters. Many years ago I taught with an English teacher named Martha M. Master. Perhaps the author of the episode is a former student. This is too coincidental.

  25. queria saber sobre as fotos que eles esta na praia se vc sabe se vai aconteceu aquilo mesmo , e quando

  26. I curious about the new character, “Masters”. The first 2 episodes worked for me, but she is already pretty predictable in her on-screen mannerisms etc., such as body-language, or head/eye movements when depicting moods, etc..
    Does anyone else feel that her “shelf-life” might be limited?

    Also, with House and Cuddy together, the episodes have started to “Feel” forced and have lost the tension that made the show interesting.

    I think it’s safe to say that in most Television Shows, where there is a chemistry between the main characters, that the masses want them to get together. In every case I can think of, it is never better television when it does happen.

  27. In “Office Politics”…are there any “REAL LIFE” cases where that treatment of using “A” actually wiped “C” out? Is there ANY such possibility??? I haven’t seen 1 person in this thread even comment or question the validity of this and I am extremely shocked, ESPECIALLY since people being diagnosed with it today are still told it’s a death sentence!
    PLEASE LMK if there’s ANY truth to this, or if it’s purely fiction?!? I’m dying to know ;)

  28. What’s the song at the end of “office politics?”

  29. What is the name of the piano song that is playing in the end of episode 6 season 7?
