Thoughts on House S7?

I hate being over a week behind everyone else this season due to my refusal to get television. Anyway, having watched "Unwritten" and read an interesting post on the subject by readingrat , and another on House_Wilson that I want to credit but can't remember, I am seriously wondering where the writers are going - with House/Cuddy, with Sam/Wilson, and with the show in general.

There's been some speculation that House and Sam's conversation about the Jack Cannon series, in which House asks "Why can't he love them both?", refers to a possible future relationship with Sam, given that he seems to have a lot more in common with her than with Cuddy. Personally, I much prefer the interpretation that House is learning to like Sam and may actually be able to share her civilly with Wilson - that is, that the "he" in question is Wilson and not House. But that in turn would suggest that Sam/Wilson is long-term viable, and what are the chances of that, given Wilson's track record? (House/Cuddy, as portrayed so far on the show, seems clearly not to be. And it's really pissing me off that they are both being written so out-of-character when, given who they are, there should be plenty of fodder for humor and drama without resorting to that.)

There's also House's outrage at Alice Tanner's decision to end her series on a cliffhanger, which I think we should take as a warning. I don't know if there are any guarantees for an eighth season of House, and at this point I'm almost hoping not (much as I regret coming so late to this party), but I think we should be prepared for a major lack of resolution - not just about the ships (although god would it make me glad if House and Wilson openly had the chance to choose each other, even if the actual decision was undisclosed), but about House's future. I'm expecting something very dramatic, given what we've seen so far - like House on the verge of choosing either life or death. Because I think that otherwise we'd just get death by accident or suicide (or, hell, possibly homicide) as the natural outcome of the character as written.

And while we're speculating, what reason do you think we'll be given for Wilde's leave of absence? What would make Thirteen say that things are "not okay" and leave a fake note before disappearing, but not without House's knowledge? I'm ashamed to admit this, but I actually started composing a story in the shower this morning in which Thirteen seduced Wilson after the truth-or-dare game in Lockdown because she wanted to get pregnant, but then she had CVS to check for HD and House convinced her to abort when it came back positive. So if you have a better idea, please save me from myself! I'm begging you.

Except that one time when Nolan kind of tricked him into it and watched to see how he would handle it (which scenario was totally ridiculous imo).
Mm, but even in this one House was devastated when Lydia chose her family over him, suggesting it was more than just a 'fling'..

Yes, I agree, for him it meant more, however unrealistic his expectations may have been.
