Re: House: Season 8 News (Mild Spoilers)

Wilson's the most logical choice by far. Of the cited candidates, he has the most experience and seniority. Vogler is clearly on the list because he was House's most famous nemesis, but he's a billionaire magnate; he's not going to take a job as dean of medicine at a small teaching hospital, even if he has the qualifications for it, which I doubt. (Not to mention that he was only added to the show over the producers' objections and they didn't think his addition was successful.) And the other characters are too low in the hospital hierarchy (Wilson's the only one on the list who's a department head) or out of left field. I guess I can't completely rule out Sam (Wilson's ex), since I know so little about her; maybe she's secretly a highly experienced department head who's eminently qualified to be a dean of medicine. But that seems unlikely.

Besides, having Wilson become House's boss poses the most challenges to their relationship and thus the most story possibilities. As mentioned, Foreman has already been House's boss and has long been established as having an adversarial relationship with House. So there's nothing new to be explored there. And none of the others really has what it takes to stand up to House effectively and keep him in check, which is a necessary condition for the job. The only way the dean could control House is if it's someone House respects and trusts, and with Cuddy gone, Wilson's the only candidate. With anyone else, House would either run roughshod over them or just rebel against them and probably lose his job rather quickly. Wilson's the only one who can make it work.

Wow. Just reading the posts here I'm glad I stopped watching when the first signs of "this show is turning into a soap opera" surfaced.
When was that, like the middle of the first season?
Season two or three.

But I want it to be Wilson.
Me too. House + Wilson Always = win! And there is a lot of potential to spice up the dynamic.

Plus, I think such a role would fit-in better with RSL's busier schedule.

It won't be Wilson unless they use it as an excuse for why he won't be around as much I don't see them doing it.

I hope it's Wilson' ex, that would be fun.

Later in the fall they will decide if it's the final season or not.
The powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.

I'm still bummed out Lisa Edelstein isn't returning. *sigh*

I think Wilson is a safe bet even though I find myself more interested in seeing Foreman getting the job because it's not who everyone is expecting.

Surely Cole fits the bill? He was present in the landmark episode when it really was lupus! If that's not crucial experience for a House cast member, I don't know what it is.
