I'm actually really excited about this episode. Unlike most, I've enjoyed a lot of episodes this season. Think about it, from the very beginning the Huddy relationship has had nothing but a negative spin--even the cringe-worthy and seemingly OOC moments are translated, to me, as more disturbing than cheesy. I feel like this whole season has been dedicated to showing just how inherently unhealthy the House/Cuddy relationship is. I don't know why Huddies are so happy this season. If I were one of them, I would think this exploration into Huddy-dom to be unfair, just because of how negative the relationship has been portrayed from the very start. Of course, I'm a Hilson shipper until the very end, so I've sadistically been enjoying the painful (and trust me, it has been painful) ride to the end.

My friend, who used to be a Huddy shipper, switched over to Hilson when she started watching this season. I believe her logic was that House was "way happier being friends with Wilson in season 6 than he's been this season dating Cuddy."

Got a little off-track here. Anyway, I'm looking forward to this episode. It's going to show just how twisted this relationship really is.

I am a little weirded out by the "House watches Cuddy get anesthesia" clip being exactly the same as the "House watches Wilson get anesthesia" clip from the ep Wilson. Is it supposed to be parallel? Guess I'll have to wait to see the ep.

House was "way happier being friends with Wilson in season 6 than he's been this season dating Cuddy."

I definitely agree with this. Season Seven has been the season of House trying way too hard.

Well, contrary to popular opinion, there are quite a few H/Cuddy shippers who adore the ship and its dysfunction, and never expected/wanted it to be happily ever after. I also adore H/W, but I certainly don't think that's a healthy, balanced relationship either. (There's also the issue of how you ship a couple in your head and how you expect it to go down on the show. I don't think H/W would be any less of a trainwreck, tbh.)

If anything, I think TPTB have actually toed the line when it comes to H/C, telling us certain things, while being afraid to actually go there (I'm also of the opinion that the original team should've left at the end of s3, or at least give them a solid and meaningful send-off in s4, rather than watering them down). They've managed to drive H/C haters to feeling the show is all about them and H/C lovers to thinking there's not nearly enough.

There's a lot of room for conflict in the relationship, but I feel as though some of it has been plucked out of thin air, rather than being true to the dynamic. I think they're getting there, though. Loved the implications of the last ep's ending. I'm also looking forward to getting some insight into where Cuddy's head is at in this relationship, since, IMO, much of the conflict has left her out of the loop.
