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

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

Q: Any clinic scenes? Funny stuff?
No clinic scenes.

Q: How did Cuddy find out about House’s decision?
She’s Cuddy. She always finds out, but not always on purpose.

Q: Also wondering, what else can you tell us about the patients or the cases for either of these episodes? It seems the Huddy drama for each episode is related…are the cases/what House does with the patients related at all too?
In some sense, you can draw a line between certain aspects of the cases and their relationship, but you can also draw they line to Amber Tamblyn’s character. Both patients are extremely strong and provide some of the best medical mystery that we’ve seen all season.

Q: So, House lies to Cuddy and she eventually finds out but it is not addressed? Am I warm?
In a sense you’re warm, but in a sense you’re completely cold.

Q: Hmmm… tougher? Does it mean that something happens to Chase while he’s in jail? (Also, smelly? After only one night? xD)
I thought staying in jail makes everyone tougher, just by osmosis. icon wink You Ask, We Answer: House Season 7 Office Politics & A Pox On Our House Jails smell, what can I say.

Q: Let me preface as being a Huddy and wanting to vomit right now… Do the writers have a “vision” of the Huddy evolution for the season, or are they approaching it episode by episode?
Yes, very much show. In these next two episode, Huddy because a very realized relationship and crosses the barrier of some kind of fantastical coupling into something that everyone can relate two. It’s really great.

Q: How will Chase react to Amber T.’s character? (Since comes across a lot like Cameron from the promos…)
Amber T’s character doesn’t have time for men… except House.

Q: You get advanced screenings of multiple TV show episodes…what do you do with them all? Destroy them? Lock them up? Give them away?
This was a digital screener, so no hard copy… but I do have many physical screeners. I store them in boxes based on the season and what not because most are digitally marked and can be traced back to me.

Q: If the critical decision House makes is work related, how can this affect his relationship with Cuddy when they have tried so hard to separate their personal and professional lives?
Certain things transcend everything else.

Q: Most of my friends watch for House and Wilson – any good scenes with them to look forward to, other than Wilson’s advice about House’s relationship with Cuddy?
There’s somewhat of a good scene in episode 6, but none in episode 7.

Q: Is ep 7×7 like season 5 episode Last resort?
No, not at all.

Q: Will Wilson find out that House is in danger in ep.7?
I don’t believe so. The entire hospital is on lockdown.

Q: Is there an episode from previous season where House makes a similar decision as the one that is detrimental? Which episode?
There have been many episodes. I’m too lazy to search. Sorry. icon wink You Ask, We Answer: House Season 7 Office Politics & A Pox On Our House

Q: Does it look like Wilson and Sam are growing closer? Do they talk about having children of their own?
Yes and No.

Q: Does House realize that he is putting his relationship with Cuddy in danger? Does it matter to him?
His relationship with Cuddy is extremely important to him, but there are just some things you have to do… because you know it’s the right thing to do.

Q: House and Wilson have seemed distant, despite “Unplanned Parenthood”. Is that all Wilson does now is give relationship advice to House about Cuddy? And could you please elaborate more on the situation with Wilson/Sam?
In episode 6 it would seem so. Wilson and Sam are very much in a tough place together, but with the hospital in lockdown, they are forced together and are forced to deal with the one thing she’s not comfortable with, children.

Q: Is Cuddy’s health at risk in either of these episodes? Is the hospital’s “health” at risk (loss of accreditation, etc.) because of House’s decision?
Cuddy is healthy as a horse… and extremely attractive horse and doesn’t have to worry about getting sick.

Q: Which episode do the fellows wind up in jail?
Episode 6

Q: Does Rachel get sick in either of the episodes? Does she become a patient at the hospital?
Rachel isn’t present or discussed in either episode 6 or 7

Q: Are house and cuddy going to get engaged?
There’s no hints at it during episodes 6 or 7.

Q: Yaitanes said “ep6 will keep ALL the #Huddy peeps talking.” Will we talk about the possibility of a break up or is there something more behind this?
You will be talking about everything. Trust me, there is no simple explanation and no one person is in the right/wrong.

Q: Any hope for those of us who remember the show is called ‘House’ and not ‘Huddy’? Jack Coleman is pretty much the only enticing thing about these spoilers.
Haha… Yes! Like I said above, the best medical stories of this season.

Q: But OMG do Huddy adopt a kitten and call it Huddy?!
Haha… I’m going to say yes, but know that I am lying. icon wink You Ask, We Answer: House Season 7 Office Politics & A Pox On Our House

Q: Does Chase have any good ideas in these episodes?
His best idea is “sleeping in.”

Q: Not even one small peck between House/Cuddy on the episodes?
Nope, sorry. But there is some intense emotion present.

Q: Are there any well-written passionate arguments between House and Cuddy?
All of the scenes between House and Cuddy are extremely well written. I’d say that it’s passionate, but not overtly and not with the volume of their voice.
