HOUSE: "House Vs. God"

I really, really liked this episode. It reminded me of all the things I enjoy most about House when the writing is really on. Also, it was a good episode for Chase, who has been ignored too much lately, and I always enjoy House and Wilson playing conversational tennis. Unfortunately it was yet another example of this season's persistent sex = death motif, and it's about the 10,000th time we've all seen a story about a passionate young charismatic preacher who turns out to be a hypocrite in the sexual morality department, but those are minor quibbles in what was, overall, a really great script.

However, what I really have to say right now is this:

I CANNOT CONTAIN MYSELF ANY LONGER.

THE WORLD IS READY. IT IS TIME.

Seriously, I have had this idea bubbling in my mind for weeks, but it is so heretical and would drive so many people in House fandom nuts for so many different reasons that I --

Actually I don't know why I haven't written about it before, come to think of it. But anyway. My heartfelt thanks to Doris Egan, a brilliant writer who has confirmed for me in the clearest possible terms what I have been thinking for weeks now:

CAMERON = WILSON. WILSON = CAMERON. They have the SAME hangups when it comes to House, and when it comes to patients, and when it comes to life in general. Cameron makes House's coffee and does his paperwork. Wilson buys House's lunch and lends him ridiculous amounts of money. Both of them show a persistent and obsessive interest in House's personal life, including trying to insinuate themselves into areas of it where they aren't necessarily wanted. Cameron married a man dying of cancer. Wilson moved in with a woman dying of cancer. House accused both of them of being parasites obsessed with trying to fix needy people. In any case, all of this means:

IF HOUSE/WILSON IN ALL ITS DYSFUNCTIONAL GLORY WORKS AS A RELATIONSHIP OF *ANY* KIND, THEN THERE IS NO REASON THAT HOUSE/CAMERON COULD NOT WORK EVERY SINGLE BIT AS WELL.

THANK YOU.

GOOD NIGHT.
