Question: Have you seen the House season premiere? I heard there were some steamy goings-on between House and she-who-shall-not-be-named. As a Huddy fan, I’m slightly annoyed that we got a hallucination and the new girl gets the real thing! —Alice
Ausiello: Yes, I’ve seen the premiere. And yes, there are some steamy goings-on between House and Franka Potente she-who-shall-not-be-named. As far as it being a slap in the face to Huddy fans, I would urge you to watch the (mostly excellent) episode before drawing any conclusions. I consider myself a Huddy fan and it didn’t really bother me — but that’s probably because I possess insider knowledge that Huddy is far from over. Plus, as exec producer Katie Jacobs points out, sex is so overrated. “The thing is this: real sparks and chemistry, which is what House and Cuddy have, are there,” she says. “That’s sort of hard to create. I don’t personally get hung up on whether they have sex, per se. I don’t mean any disrespect to the fans. Sex is great. But, whether they do it or not is sort of not the issue, exactly. They have an attraction. It’s an intense attraction. It’s intellectual. It’s physical. Where it will lead in the future, I really don’t know. But it has not dissipated.”
Ausiello: I’m not sure if we have, but I have. Remember me telling you last week about the little business trip House, Wilson, and Cuddy go on in episode 7? Well, I hear Lucas is tagging along!
Is it true that Chase is going to euthanize someone this year on House and then keep it from Cameron? — Dyan
MICKEY: "That's not quite the story," Lisa Edelstein says of the recently reported mercy-killing storyline. "They have some problems with a secret and when your partner is keeping a secret from you, you can't help but have your mind wander about what that secret is. The thing is, it's not the secret Cameron thinks it is, and when she finds out what the secret is, it's kind of worse." What could be worse? Discuss in the comments.
