Q: Even though Cuddy is hurt, and their relationship is challenged, does it seem House’s decision is in line with what makes him the most incredible man Cuddy has ever known?
Yes, but it’s not always easily to realize that.

Q: Does it seem the weight of House/Cuddy emotional interchanges reveal the depth of their love? Are their emotions only viewed by the audience or other characters?
Very much so, but maybe not entirely in the way you’re thinking. There’s no doubt that they care for each other deeply. There are some private emotionally scenes, but also some extremely public scenes that are very touching.

Q: Since there is no clear right or wrong in the character decisions, what about the POTW? Are the motives and situations surrounding the patient as complex?
Completely! Both patients in episode 6 and 7 have extremely complex stories, medical mysteries and, for the most part, are extremely complex characters.

Q: Will Amber’s character reveal things about Taub that set-up the future storyline surrounding issues with Taub and Rachel’s marriage?
I don’t think so, but you do get a glimpse at a side of Taub that you weren’t expecting.

Q: Since House making this type of decision isn’t necessarily new for the character, would you say the relationship with Cuddy making this time different is allowing us to explore his character at a new, deeper level?
Yes, to an extent. House acknowledges the importance of his relationship with Cuddy, but he can’t change who he is.

Q: Do the words “I love you” come out of House or Cuddy at any point during the episodes?

Q: Do you know who wrote the episodes?
Great question. Unfortunately, I don’t. The episodes end for me after the final scene.

Q: Do you find those Huddy fans babbling about the same thing over and over annoying?
Haha, no, not at all. Everyone tends to ask different questions and even the ones that are similar tend to be tweaked just a little bit different so that it’s harder for me to withhold information. 😉

Q: Do House and Cuddy talk about how his decision affects their relationship, or is it just implied?
There is talk, but the audience is very much in House’s mind-set and unsure with what’s going on.

Q: You said House and Cuddy don’t kiss, but do they at least hug it out? 😉
Sorry, they don’t pull an Ari Gold. Although, they do “look it out” and in this instance, it’s almost as emotional as if they were to “kiss it out” or “hug it out.”

Q: Does the jail time affect Chase personally more than the other two members? Will it remind him of what he did last season (killing a patient)?
This jail experience will be very enjoyable to the audience, there is no emotional baggage attached.

Q: Does Chase have good scenes with House?
Kind of, in episode 7.

Q: Do you think that Cuddy will forgive House for whatever he did that hurt her?
Probably, but we all know that it’s hard to know what Cuddy is going to do.

Q: So Cuddy knows about what House did. But does House know that Cuddy knows or is one of those things Cuddy will pretend not to know about and avoid addressing the issue?
There are no secrets.

Q: Will House be ok at the end of episode 7?
You won’t know until episode 8.

Q: Is there any evidence (actual or implied) that House and Cuddy stop sleeping together as a result of the events of these 2 episodes?
Haha, no, there is no evidence of that.

Q: Is there any sign of House’s leg bothering him in the two episodes?
Hmmm… nothing overt. He gets around pretty well.

Q: What happens to Chase in Jail? He did look more shocked than Taub and Foreman to be there in the preview clip.
All three of them experience the same thing, which is hilarious.

Q: Please tell us more about what’s going on with Chase in those episodes.
There really isn’t much. Sorry.
