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: What is the difference between these two episodes from the first five?
A: I’d say that episodes 1 and 2 where leading in a certain direction, but then episodes 3, 4 & 5 were kind of stand still. Episodes 6 & 7 really move in a specific direction that’s both interesting and refreshing.

Q: Detrimental? This sounds serious (read: sad). Tell me it isn’t all bad…
A: Ok, I will tell you that it it’s all bad…. Just don’t always believe what you read on the internet. icon wink You Ask, We Answer: House Season 7 Office Politics & A Pox On Our House

Q: Is House’s relationship with Cuddy put in jeopardy in “Office Politics”? If so, does it remain in jeopardy at the end of “Office Politics”? If so, is it still in jeopardy at the end of “A Pox On Our House”? Or, is there some positive (for the relationship) resolution of the detrimental event in either of the episodes?
A: Phew… a long one.;-) Yes to 3 of those questions, maybe to 1.

Q: Do House and Cuddy end the episodes on good terms, or are they still fighting?
A: They don’t fight in either episode.

Q: Are non-Huddies gonna enjoy those eps too?
A: Yes, very much so. While there are elements of Huddy, these are both two major POTW episodes that are really wonderful to watch unfold.

Q: Is Huddy still going strong after these two episodes? Anything squee-worthy going on for fans of that pairing?
There are moments where you might squee. They are still going after these two episodes.

Q: Huddy fans have to be worried after these 2 episodes?
A: Depends on how much you worried. I’m less worried and more curious to see what happens next.

Q: Please, who is in the last scene of ep?
A: Cuddy and a nurse in one, Cuddy and House in another.

Q: Please tell me if the decision that House has to make and can hurt huddy is about the job or if there is somebody else involved (i mean a potential love interest *vomits*)?
A: House is a one woman man. It’s not about that.

Q: Will we finally see a passionate kiss between House and Cuddy?
A: Didn’t you watch the season premiere? You don’t think that was passionate? Hospitals aren’t really the best places to kiss.

Q: Any Cuddy tears?
No tears… Well, kind of… but not what you think.

Q: Are Chase, Taub and Foreman the ones who end up in jail?
Almost everyone in episode 6 has the possibility of going to jail for doing something that shouldn’t. You’ll have to wait and see.

Q: I want to see some loving, emotional scenes between House and Cuddy. Any chance to get that?

Q: Any mention of 13 and whether House knows where she is and what she is doing? If so, does it tie in to the detrimental Huddy situation?
All quiet on the Thirteen front.

Q: Why do the three team members end up in jail and how do they get out?
House does many things that aren’t exactly “legal.” This time, the police serve as a useful reminder.

Q: Huddy will end the 2 eps together and still in love?
I believe they are still in love.

Q: Is House going to show any affection for Cuddy in these episodes?
Yes, but it depends on what you consider affection.

Q: Please tell me House won´t follow Wilsons relationship advice? That guy is divorced how many times?! Or maybe it´s one that doesn´t suck (for Huddy)?
Wilson has the ability to give good advice. I think people will be split on whether it was good or not.

Q: House’s “decision” prob made big impact on his relationship. Question is was it a negative or positive?

Q: How is the team gonna react to the new girl?
They react like they usually do with new members – with certain members being more vocal. Although, they warm up to her very quickly.

Q: Are Wilson and Sam arguing over if they want children or not?
No, but she does have some great moments with a child in episode 7.

Q: Does this detrimental decision get resolved or do you think this is something that will come back at a later episode to affect House and Cuddy’s relationship?
I think it will come back later.

Q: Will the Huddy fans be cursing at the TV, at House, at the writers, etc.?
Well, I’m not sure how much you like to curse, but I wouldn’t. Episodes 6 and 7 are really quite amazing.

Q: Do you see this problem between Huddy something that can be solved, or…?
If I was in their situation, I think it could be resolved.

Q: As you said about the “fallout from desicion”, is that a private life decision or a work decision?
The episode description implies that it’s work-related… and I’d believe them if I were you. icon wink You Ask, We Answer: House Season 7 Office Politics & A Pox On Our House

Q: Is there a chance Cuddy may lose her job because of House’s decision and is it still unresolved at the end of “a pox on our house”?
C’mon… you and I both know that Cuddy is “untouchable.”

  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?
