How’s this for a medical show crossover? Last night’s episode of House was directed by Paul McCrane, better known to ER fans as the grumpy, ginger-but-balding Dr. Romano. Such details – it’s all in the details people. Recently House has taken a shift into the romantic lives of the docs, with the on/off shenanigans between Chase and Cameron and the possible whiff of attraction between Wilson and Cuddy. And though this more personal approach remained, it turned less amorous, more interfering.
I have wondered why House is obsessed between what, if anything, is transpiring between chum Wilson and boss Cuddy and last night left us no closer to solving the riddle. By asking Cuddy to the theatre in last week’s episode, I had interpreted this as sexual interest in her from House and I had believed this suspicion to be confirmed in the opening few minutes of last night’s instalment. But those clever writers – they take you in one direction, just to ditch you on the side of the road and race off without you.
