OMG, I think that jezziejay was right!

So a while back, jezziejay  posted this. And while at the time, I was very much attached to my idea that Cuddy, House, and Rachel would be involved in some kind of accident, Rachel would die, and Cuddy would blame House, new spoilers gleaned over at house_cuddy have caused me to reconsider. Now Cuddy's hospitalization and dreams of a future Rachel in 7X15 seem much more consistent with jezziejay 's Gone with the Wind interpretation: that Cuddy gets pregnant and either miscarries or has an abortion, and blames House.

I would hate to think that House would do anything deliberately to sabotage her pregnancy, whether he wanted to have kids with her or not, but it would be totally consistent with his character for him to insist on termination if he feels that Cuddy's life is in danger.

I agree, he would insist on termination if Cuddy's life was endangered by it but otherwise I can not see him ever trying to sabotage her pregnancy in anyway. He knows how long and hard she tried to get pregnant and how heartbroken she was when she couldn't. If House really loves her, he wouldn't want to see her go through with it again.

I can see a scenario where House accidently causes her to trip or something and then she miscarries (for the same reason she miscarried before having nothing to do with him) but then Cuddy blames him in her grief and that is what ultimately ends it for them.

Still, the idea of a Huddy baby makes me shudder even more than a Huddy wedding and a Huddy wedding gives me nightmares.

Just looked at House_Cuddy teaser. Give me a break! Just because Cuddy dreams about a future with House as her husband does not guarantee that if they marry it will last long. They will marry, I'm certain of that. It seems to be TPTB wet dream this year but I'm hoping it will end during the honeymoon.

Comment edited to add an idea.

I really don't think that there will be a Huddy baby. If she does get pregnant, I see it ending in tragedy.

And I totally agree with you, dreaming of the future means that Cuddy wants or fears to have certain things happen, but it doesn't mean anything about the longevity of their relationship.

Yikes. Cancer is another possibility. It doesn't really fit in with the "Gone with the Wind" spoiler, though. Unless Cuddy is like Melanie dying, leaving Scarlett (House) to be with Ashley (Wilson). But re: pgrabia's comment above, a terminal diagnosis would provide the motivation for House and Cuddy to get married so that he can become Rachel's legal guardian.

I don't believe Cuddy is going to die or that the show is going to kill her off. We've already seen them work in the hospital when things are really bad between them--maybe not this bad--and it's never as dramatic as the press release presents it.

"ON AN ALL-NEW HOUSE, HOUSE FACES A CHALLENGE THAT WILL CHANGE HIM FOREVER/TEST HIM LIKE NEVER BEFORE/THAT COULD MEAN THE END OF CIVILIZATION AS WE KNOW IT."

Ya know?

TOTALLY.

I also doubt that Cuddy is going to die. I do think that TPTB will put her life in danger in 7X15 in order to generate drama. And I also think that she will leave House and PPTH by the end of this season.

Jeez - you don't have to sound so surprised - hee:) To tired to add anything else...but God, it's not looking good for Cuddy, is it?

Ha ha! I'm not surprised that YOU in particular might have been right ;). (Nor am I surprised that I am probably going to turn out to be wrong!) I'm just tickled that we now have more data supporting an intriguing hypothesis.

Cuddy getting pregnant definitely makes sense. The press release reveals that she will get sick, and with all of the pregnancy issues Cuddy has had in the past, it would make sense for her to be sick due to a pregnancy. I agree with pgrabia, I think that House would want Cuddy to terminate the child if he/she endangered Cuddy's life.

It would also be an interesting dilemma if the issue wasn't necessarily Cuddy's life, but the possibility of birth defects. One of them might want to keep the child, one of them might not. In the past, House has seemed to be alright with abortion, when it might endanger the life of a patient, or when the patient was raped in "One Day, One Room."

At the same time...if the baby was going to be born with a birth defect, it would be interesting to see House encouraging Cuddy to have the baby, arguing that a mental or physical disability didn't mean that the child didn't deserve a chance at life, and having Cuddy arguing the opposite, saying that she shouldn't have the baby because of the large responsibility and strain that could be on the both of them.

I don't know if they'd kill Cuddy off...considering that her character seems to be rather popular and the fact that she's received a lot of focus this season. It would be odd. The general consensus seems to be that House, Cuddy, and Wilson are the main characters on the show so it would be weird for one of them to be killed off...At the same time, they killed Kutner and Amber, so Cuddy or Wilson could be killed off.

I think it would be really, really weird for Cuddy or Wilson to be killed off, but, readingrat makes a lot of good points of the attraction it would have for the writers to kill Cuddy off...

I've heard that one character will die this season though. I have no idea who it will be. I was originally thinking that it might be Thirteen, but I believe it was DS who mentioned having plans for her character in a possible later season, and it would be weird to have her return just to kill her off. Perhaps it's Masters? Maybe it is Wilson...Or Taub's wife. Or Cuddy's mom or sister...I have no idea.

Ideally, I'd hope that no one dies, but I've read that someone will. I really, really hope it's not Cuddy or Wilson. Or Taub...or Foreman...or Chase...Or anyone. Maybe it's Masters?

Interesting point about the birth defects. Except I think that House would argue to terminate and Cuddy to carry to term, and if she gave in, she'd feel terribly guilty and blame him. (I know, I'm totally obsessed with this idea that something horrible is going to happen and Cuddy's going to blame House.)

I believe that Cuddy will leave the House/PPTH/the show, but not that she will be killed off. That will be enough drama for the writers, I think. On the other hand, Kutner was killed mainly because Kal Penn wanted to take another job, so if RSL decides he wants to return to Broadway for good...

I've heard that one character will die this season though. I have no idea who it will be.
I also remember DS saying that OW was coming back for S8 (assuming that there is one).

Maybe it's Masters?
We can only hope ;).

I know, I'm totally obsessed with this idea that something horrible is going to happen and Cuddy's going to blame House.

But it totally makes sense lol. I know they are still together in 7x16 and I think even after that. However...if House does argue to terminate and Cuddy doesn't want to, but goes along with it anyway (which, I agree is more likely)...she might grow to resent him, and blame him, causing their relationship to slowly fall apart even after they get married.

Cuddy leaving would make more sense. I've heard rumors going back and forth about whether or not RSL would return to House. I think I've heard more rumors saying that he will be able to, than that he actually will, but I also haven't heard rumors saying that he definitely won't. It's up in the air, as is the possibility of S8.

Masters and Thirteen apparently meet in the episode where Thirteen returns. I want a showdown of some sort. :) I really don't like Masters. I was watching House with my boyfriend the other day, and he pointed out that if the writers planned on Thirteen returning, they likely needed an annoying, expendable character to temporarily take her place.

Some people like Masters, but I really don't. I love Amber Tamblyn though, and wish they hadn't canceled Joan of Arcadia so prematurely.

I really didn't like Thirteen, especially after her HD diagnosis, but Masters makes me miss her. Thankfully, we know that the latter is only temporary.

I will be totally pissed if they kill Cuddy off. I am getting so sick of the the dead mothers and babies thing. And what is it with cancer and these writers? Cancer has a hugely high survival rate, yet on House it is an instant death sentence?

Also, despite the annoyance I have with Huddy in general, Cuddy is the only woman over 30 this show ever features. I strongly suspect that the problem with Cameron was she finally started looking and acting like a mature, self-confident woman, so she had to go.

The pregnancy thing ending in a miscarriage I will accept (I am sure the writers will be pleased to hear that ;P) because it actually shows some continuity with Cuddy having reproductive problems. But I suspect that continuity is a bit too much to hope for at this point.

I really don't think that they will kill Cuddy off. The terminated-pregnancy-to-save-her-life plotline, though, has lots of potential for recriminations and dramatic break-up if you're the kind of writer who doesn't mind murdering a few babies. I mean fetuses.
