So of course I have to wait for the episode to come up next week, but my understanding from reading comments is that Cuddy and House had various weird dreams about their relationship and/or life after it, House couldn't stand to face his fears about Cuddy without getting back on Vicodin, Cuddy broke up with him for it, and next week's promo suggests that Depressed!House is going to jump off a building???

And what are the titles of the next two episodes? "Fall From Grace" and "The Dig"? Sounds really ominous. Unless Cuddy is just going to die really quickly from her totally unexpected and ridiculous metastatic cancer.

As much as you're willing to give. I've been reading all of the spoilers and comments on house_wilson.

She did not have cancer, but House was terrified that she did, and after several attempts to deny/deflect his terror, he showed up in her hospital room in time to support her before and after diagnostic surgery. She realized after the fact that he had taken Vicodin in order to fortify himself (her dreams were trying to send her the message that he couldn't deal with such stress without the aid of narcotics), confronted him and accused him of spending his life trying to avoid pain, and left him. At which point he begged her not to go, and then relapsed for realz.

The promos for next week's episode show a stoned House, living for some reason in what appears to be a hotel room (what the hell happened to his apartment?) and insisting that he is fine. Masters tells him that his judgment is impaired, and Cuddy is arguing with Wilson that she can't fix (House's) problem; she *is* his problem. There's a glimpse of House standing on the (hotel? rehab center? wtf?) balcony railing, about three stories up, and smiling. The spoilers mention that House has some "business away from the hospital, during the episode which I assume means drug treatment or pain management appointments, but for all I know at the rate we're going could mean he's joining the foreign legion.

I was not fond of Wilson in this episode. Foreman was more openly concerned about House than Wilson, who was imo insufferably self-righteous. YMMV there.

I liked it. The pacing was kind of choppy, but the conflict was credible, dream/dance sequences were well done, Chase was fantastic, and the POTW storyline featured an ethically conflicted, empathetic Taub. And of course, Hugh Laurie knocked it out of the park.

What, she didn't have cancer after all? Thank you, I sure didn't manage to get that from the comments!

When you say he only relapsed for realz after she broke up with him, you mean that he had taken the Vicodin already, but... just a little bit?

I've actually been looking forward to this episode A LOT without knowing anything about the denouement. I have no doubt that HL did a fantastic job, and I'm excited to hear that my boy Chase was fantastic too.

Wilson was Cassandra in this ep, foretelling of doom and not believed.

I disagree that he was self-righteous in this ep (we've seen him be that before, for sure). He wasn't holding himself up as a better example; he was simply telling House what he had to do. And he knew House could do it, because House did it for Wilson. Wilson escorting House into Cuddy's patient room would have been just as much a crutch as vicodin. House needed to be able to take that step by himself, and he couldn't. It's horribly sad.

i just watched the promo, and if i am not mistaken there is a wilson in the corner, looking up - and that's when house smiles? though it's a somewhat creepy manic smile...

Okay, the reader's digest version:
1) Cuddy has mass on kidney, might be cancer that has spread to her lungs
2) House does not show up until right before the operation
3) She discovers he's been taking Vicodin
4) She breaks up with him
5) General misery all around, except that of course she doesn't have cancer.

Wilson's in it a lot. POTW is boring.

Great dream sequences:
1) House fights team Zombie! I love Foreman!Zombie!
2) 1950s sitcom scene w/ H/C
3) 2 1/2 men sitcom w/ H/W
4) The musical number is absolutely fucking awesome (it's Cuddy's surgery dream, and it makes perfect sense AND it shows that Hugh Laurie can do anything).

WILSON! And I'm really looking forward to seeing the (remaining) dream sequences.

And she doesn't have cancer. WTF. So, um, "Fall from Grace" and "The Dig" probably DON'T refer to Cuddy then. And yet we know we're going to be at Arlene's house at some point. Do you think they're still going to try to pull off a wedding, or is this it for their relationship??

DS has said that he won't jerk the audience around with repeated breakup/reconciliation without very good reason, so I think this is it.

But what he considers very good reason probably differs from my definition.

I'm feeling just a little bit jerked around, but I'll get over it.

POTW is kind of boring, although I liked the Taub ruminations about the patient. We also got to see Magic-Schoolbus-Cam again! (When they show recreations of what's happened inside the patient's body.)

He was so sexy in top hat and tails singing and dancing. Shame they couldn't have shown Wilson singing as well. Oh well. It was a good number, though it's significance for what was going on still escapes me.

I think it foreshadows House's relapse and their break-up ("Judgment Day").

Flywoman, I hope you don't mind if I ask a couple questions too.

If she didn't have cancer, what was wrong with Cuddy?

Was someone using sleeping pills and calling them candy?

And can someone please tell me why Wilson's getting a bit of grief?

It was a benign tumor. She'll be fine.

Cuddy was using sleeping pills, and her sister mentioned that Rachel called them candy, which led to her epiphany that House eating candy in her dreams meant that he was going to resort to drugs to cope with his fears of losing her.

As far as I can tell, Wilson is getting grief because he didn't hunt House down when he went AWOL at one point in the episode, and he expressed his desire (to Foreman) not to have to pick up the pieces when Huddy imploded due to his friend's inability to man up and be with Cuddy in her time of need.

Thanks!

Kind of sad that Cuddy and House both have to drug themselves. I've never thought this relationship was good for either of them. Hopefully she'll relax once she's single again. Ironically enough, sleeping pills are pretty habit forming.
