With House taking a semi-hiatus until November 7, fans of the hit Fox series want to know what’s in store for our favorite cane-wielding diagnostician. To help supplement our popular “You Ask, We Answer: House” feature (and provide some additional photographic insight), we have included twenty-four photos from three episodes that are set to air in November.
In the “Office Politics” photos, you’ll see the introduction of Martha Masters (Amber Tamblyn) to House’s eclectic team, a glimpse at the patient of the week (Jack Coleman), and Foreman and Taub taking in a little game of basketball, to see who’s really the better athlete.
In the “A Pox On Our House” photos, you’ll see Martha Master seemingly become a member of the team and, most importantly, you’ll see House put his safety in jeopardy in order to save a patient’s life.
Of course, with rumors spreading like wildfire that something terrible is going to happen to Princeton Plainsboro’s most prolific coupling, everyone wants to know what the future holds for star-crossed lovers House and Cuddy. Fortunately, the “Small Sacrifices” photos give you a peek into what the eventual outcome may be. Although, remember that photos may be deceiving – especially for a show like House.
Episode 6: “Office Politics”
In the midst of a Senate re-election race, the incumbent’s campaign manager mysteriously falls ill with liver failure and temporary paralysis. When Cuddy pushes House to hire brilliant medical student Martha Masters (guest star Amber Tamblyn) in Thirteen’s absence, House and the team become wary of the young doctor’s lack of experience and medical perspective but are forced to give their new by-the-book teammate a chance to prove herself. After a surprising campaign announcement is made by the incumbent, House and the team look to the candidate to find clues about the patient’s condition. Meanwhile, Foreman learns that Taub has a past connection to Masters, and in an effort to save his patient’s life, House must make a critical decision that may compromise his relationship with Cuddy.
Episode 7: “A Pox On Our House”
After a 200-year-old medicine jar found on an off-shore shipwreck shatters in a teenage girl’s palm, she is admitted to Princeton Plainsboro for symptoms closely linked to smallpox, prompting the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to take action to isolate the virus. After Dr. Dave Broda (guest star Dylan Baker) from the CDC institutes a lockdown on the hospital and suspends the team’s ability to confirm a diagnosis, Masters grows suspicious of Broda’s motives and is convinced the patient is suffering from a different disease and must prove that she belongs on House’s team and earn his trust. When the patient’s father experiences similar symptoms, House is forced to make a precarious decision that puts his own life in jeopardy. Meanwhile, Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard) and Sam (guest star Cynthia Watros) comfort a 6-year-old chemotherapy patient who prompts them to examine their own relationship.
Episode 8: “Small Sacrifices”
Masters (guest star Amber Tamblyn) and the team treat a patient (Kuno Becker) who chooses a special course of treatment after his daughter’s (Madalyn Horcher) cancer is cured. Meanwhile, House, Cuddy, Wilson, and Sam (guest star Cynthia Watros) attend a co-worker’s wedding. House (Hugh Laurie) makes an effort to impress Cuddy.
House airs Mondays @8pm, on Fox.
