Oh goody, Thirteen is the House-Whisperer. I’m almost tempted to NOT watch the episode, for fear of damaging my screen from throwing stuff at it. “Heal his spirit”? Please pass me the bucket. Bleghhhhh bleghhhh bleghhhhh.
“Thirteen reappears really in the form an intervention almost,” reveals Laurie in the following exclusive sneak peek. The former Princeton-Plainsboro MD shares scenes not only with Dr. Grumpmeister, but his ailing better half, Wilson, as well. Knowing a thing or two about impending death, perhaps she can “heal” his spirits?
Maybe Peter Jacobson is not even joking here. If I were in his place, I’d be annoyed. You work so hard for a show, but the finale comes, and it’s all about a past character. At least Chase got a sweet, graceful goodbye, what about Taub and Foreman? Shunted to the side now that the “prodigal daughter” and the writers’ favorite is back?
Offscreen, the reunion was a little… uncomfortable. “There’s fun and camaraderie [among the cast], but really that came out when [Wilde] had left,” deadpans Peter Jacobson. “Now that she’s back, it makes things a little bit awkward.”
Dear House writers: Olivia Wilde is not that into you. She ditched the show to do a bunch of crappy sci-fi movies. Get over her already, and stop pissing off the few viewers you still have by turning the last two episodes into “Thirteen, M.D”. I say this with love.
