[SPOILERS] House Discussion Thread
« on: September 09, 2008, 06:15:50 pm »
k I watched the season finale a little while ago and I'm too lazy to look things up, but am I correct in remembering that Thirteen tested positive for Huntington's?

I remember a sheet of blood diseases that she was holding at the end of the finale, and all of them were black except one, the line for Huntington's, which was red. So this of course suggests she has it.

Which season finale?  I remember that, and I'm only in the middle of the 4th season.

Season 4s season finale.
One must ask oneself: "do I will trolling to become a universal law?" And then when one realizes "yes, I do will it to be such," one feels completely justified.

Yeah, she probably has it since her name is 13 :P I think it's pretty clear that she tested positive for it, but wanted a good segue into the thread. The only way they could make her not have it would be a false positive, which would make for a lame storyline.

I looked up the specifics of the disease on wikipedia, and apparently it can have an onset as late as 40-70, depending on the number of CAG repeats in the Huntington's gene (the more repeats, the worse off you are). So I think the show can make a reasonable argument for keeping her as a doctor on House's staff.

That being so, she will definitely provide a new emotional window on the show. Also I think she may be a candidate for dating House, as they are both ailing from illnesses (House's being the chronic pain in his leg). They may very likely start introducing women into House's life this coming season. I think it would be hilarious to see him on dates.

By the way, for those of you who have only watched Season 4, I think it would be a good idea to watch select episodes in previous seasons. There's a lot of cool backstory that makes the current episodes even more enjoyable. If you don't care too much about "spoiling," probably a good idea to watch season premieres and finales, a total of 6 episodes. If not all 6 then some of them.

I've watched episodes 21-23 on TV this past week, i.e. the season 1 finales and the season 2 premiere, and they were very good.

Hm, a significant disappointment for me in Season 4 is that, from the few episodes of previous seasons that I have watched, House's old staff seem to be way cooler than his new staff =/

Yeah, I'd have to agree, with the exception of 13.  13 is pretty awesome.  At least they're all still there in smaller doses, though.

Cameron is cooler than 13, IMO. 13 is too detached, whereas Cameron is very open with her feelings.

After House, my next-favorite characters on the show are probably Wilson and Cameron. I love when Wilson says "we could build monuments to your self-centeredness." The inflection makes it hilarious.

Agreed.  13 still has the coolest personality out of Taub and Kumar, though. :)

Yeah, but Taub and Kumar are kind of boring. The whole "Taub cheating on his wife thing" is pretty stupid. And we don't really know anything about Kumar.

Foreman and Chase are cool though. It's funny how House really gets under Foreman's skin, and on the contrary, how Chase has a peculiar flavor of fortitude and indifference towards House's tactics. Chase swears at House under his breath, but at the end of the day House isn't on his mind.

13 is hot.

I like how Foreman got his medical training on ER :P

Maybe I've seen more of season 4 than I realize?  I'll have to keep watching...
