House M.D S08E18 (Body and Soul) – The C-Word is Cancer

Let’s start with the big shocker first – Wilson has cancer. No really, he does. Judging from the preview for the next episode (The C-Word), this is not a prank, or joke, or trick. I’m not sure how I feel about this, on the one hand, the House-Wilson relationship is the most important one on the show, so it’s entirely appropriate that the last few episodes of the show should focus on the two of them. On the other hand, really, show?? You’re going the “my best (and only!) friend has cancer” storyline now? Feels very exploitative.

I don’t really buy that House would be willing to leave the boy un-cured just because he doesn’t want religion to get the credit. Like Adams said, since when does House care about getting credit? Interesting though that the episode left the levitating incident unexplained. House must have been so distracted with Dominika; usually I would have expected him to try and figure out how the patient managed to levitate. Serves him right that Dominika left, what he did was abominable, like Wilson said, basically keeping her a prisoner.

Taub: So, you’re worried about what it means?
Park: I’m not worried, it means nothing. It means something, doesn’t it? I work with him, I can’t want to sleep with him.
Taub: Maybe Chase just represents work, and you’re in love with your job.
Park: It … has been very satisfying lately.

Snerk! Hihi. I was hating the Park-Chase storyline at first, because it feels like making fun of the not conventionally attractive person for fancying the more conventionally attractive person. But the two of them are just so sweet together. And of course Chase then had his own dream about Park:

 

I knew it was a dream even before they satrted kissing, the minute they said “bitch” and “dick”. Come on, that’s not something these two would really say to each other!

Park: Was I good?
Chase: It doesn’t mean anything. The idea got planted, it was probably inevitable.
Park: It means something.
Chase: What?
Park: Well, it could mean the obvious, that you want some of this. When will you learn that that look is insulting? Or … it could just mean that we like each other. I’m weird, and you’re pretty, but we connect. We feel safe, we trust each other.
Chase: Maybe.
Park: Just testing my theory.
