Re: House 5x05 "Lucky Thirteen" - Discussion and Spoilers

Wow at the preview!

Looks good this week...but meh tonight...don't care enough about 13

The House/Wilson stuff was good though, and even the Wilson "I'm boring" stuff

Re: House 5x05 "Lucky Thirteen" - Discussion and Spoilers

What House did to/for 13... beautiful. Except that it apparently hasn't worked. She's still feeling alone - more than understandable given that her friend is now going to live instead of dying with her. But she's still spiraling farther downward. She's lucky she has a job, because House was right to fire her.

Have to say I am more impressed with Wilde's acting chops the more we see of her. Here's hoping she gets a role or two where she gets to break some new gorunf that doesn't involve something so sensational or titillating.

House is being pretty brutal to 13. But then he usually has a backup motivation to such tactics. Maybe he's taking the tough road with her, to get her to snap out of this death spiral. Yeah, not sure I belive it either.
Good catch. And good episode. It started off pretty damn hot, then took a turn and went deeper. The whole thing was a pretty great 13 story and as usual, House comes through at the last minute, for both 13 and the patient. I give this one an 'Excellent'.

Why was House upset at Cuddy's news?

I did.

What am I missing?

[Edit] I'm pretty sure I saw a different preview than you did. I didn't get the FOX version. I just saw a drugged out woman who's supposed to be carrying the baby Cuddy is adopting. The baby has developed some problems and the blonde woman tells Cuddy she's sorry. I didn't see anything that tells my why House was upset in tonight's episode.

I'd say a combo of him not being asked to try and father her child and not being asked to be a reference. Can't say I blame Cuddy for the latter.

Excellent episode, titillation aside (which was great -BTW .

It was fun seeing House and Wilson back in regular form.

Awesome.

I love 13.

I still kind of like Argyle Sock PI guy. I think his series will be interesting if/when he gets it.

POTW was an intersting story and her and 13 had some good, touching, and warm scenes together. (Again, titillation aside.)

I'm still "hoping" for a turn-around on 13's Hutchingtons diagnosis. Either a (completely fictional) cure, discovery that her tests have been false positives or House discovering she has some other condition that caused false positives.

I did note that when House cut the onion that HIS eyes didn't tear up. And he should've cut a red-onion. Those tend to be a bit more potent.

^Even better. House knows it already and he is not telling her just yet, because he needs her that way...

I'm still watching the opening 30 seconds of the episode.

I just keep rewinding it and rewinding it over and over.

I think my DVR is broke.
Combined with House hallucinating Cuddy dancing in schoolgirl outfit last season I don't what I'd do.

And yeah 13 reminds me of Cameron so if we imagine Summer Glau that's 2 for the price of one

He kept turning his head away, widening his eyes, then dobbed them with a handkerchief afterwards, so I'm pretty sure his eyes did tear up. Of course, that was before he ordered the "artificial tears to maximize the visual impact of this moment."

Yeah, he acted as if he eyes teared up. But the makeup people could've done something to, you know, give him tears if not just actualy cut an onion and force real tears out of him.

Re: House 5x05 "Lucky Thirteen" - Discussion and Spoilers

Another great episode. The hot titillation aside (which was, well, hot), I loved the character paths for 13, the House/Wilson relationship (I was completely fooled!), and the whole "You're boring, Foreman" thing.

It was great to see House and Wilson antics true to form, but I was surprised by the ending with Cuddy and the adoption. At the same time, I'm glad they've returned to the "Cuddy wants a kid" storyline. Next week look's awesome, especially that last shot from the teaser!

Re: House 5x05 "Lucky Thirteen" - Discussion and Spoilers

Cuddy adopting a child doesn't surprise me all that much, as the signs have been there. We've seen all kinds of comments from House about her wanting a child. I wonder if her adoption will be "fast-tracked" as television adoptions nearly always are. Or will it even come off? Hard to tell from that teaser.

^Do we know when she applied for adopting a kid? If not, we probably couldn't say it was "fast-tracked".

Re: House 5x05 "Lucky Thirteen" - Discussion and Spoilers

I was surprised only because we hadn't heard about the "Cuddy wants a kid" storyline in ages (since season 3?).

Assuming the seasons pass like years, it wasn't that long ago that the indication was she was going the route of insemination. Adoption likely wouldn't have been tried unless other avenues had been blocked.
