WARNING - THIS THREAD CONTAIN DISCUSSION OF S4 SPOILERSSince other forums (sic!) are currently as dead as a doornail, lets talk!Specifically, in light of the departure of all the Cottages at the end of s3 and the s4 promo pics I reckon we've all seen, just how much H/W do you think TPTB will give us in early s4? How much Cuddy? How much House/Cuddy? (Or Wilson/Cuddy - how about another date?) How much of any possible new team members (& folks, we need a name for them - in my mind they are NOT the Cottages or Ducklings)? Will the Cottages be back and when? If so, who will drive bringing them back? (House, Wilson or Cuddy? Or will they beg to return?)Inquiring minds want to know your thoughts!
Well, Doris Egan is co-writing episode two, so I'm expecting *something* from Wilson.
Her co-writer wrote The Jerk &, of course, she wrote House vs God - so I'm kinda hoping for some good "return of Chase too!
I think we are going to get no less or no more than usual. The Duckys might be gone (but they are still floating around the show) AND the writers have to introduce the four new characters. It's going to be a very crowded few episodes before things settle down.
Five new characters by last count, so yes, very crowded & never mind the 40 characters playing "Survivor" to start. But maybe we'll get more co-interviews with Wilson? (Me like that idea).
That would be nice.
I hate, hate, hate, hate, HATE the term "duckling." Nevertheless, I'm willing to call the new fellows "eggs." Then, when House messes with them, we can call them "scrambled eggs."I think we will get a decent amount of the departed ones in the first few episodes. I don't know whether they did it for this purpose, but whenever House is in a different location than they are we have several good scenes with them and Hugh Laurie gets a lighter workload for the week. (Failure to Communicate and Airborne)
Me to re "ducklings" - I've a fondess for "cottages", but actually I love when House calls them "the kids" in Failure to Communicate.Very true re the different locations, I hadn't thought of that - Chase in Arizona, Foreman at Mercy & Wilson hanging out with House. Works for me.
Since House is apparently 'auditioning' new team members by numbering them, I think we should call them The Numbers.I am hoping that Chase will come back and be House's second-in-command, because I think he would fit in just right. I supppose we will have to have Cammie back too - she can be under Chase, perhaps. *cough*Foreman turned into a pompous ass in season three, so I don't care if he goes away for good, but failing that he could be a neurologist at PPTH and get brought in for consults and to be abused by House.I am hoping that we will get a nice lot of House/Wilson and Cuddy, at least at the beginning of the season, but I'm not holding my breath.I would love it if the new lackeys asked Chase about House and Wilson and he just said off-handedly "oh, yeah. They're together." Nothing to frighten the children, but a little tidbit to brighten the HoYay heart. I'm betting it won't happen, though, alas.
Well Chase could certaily tell them all about the pancakes Wilson makes for House ;DThe Numbers, the Skittles, the Eggs (one step removed from ducklings & subject to being squashed!), but Cammie working for Chase - ick! Banish Cammie to the clinic!
If we're banishing Cammie (which suits me fine) she might as well go a long way away, e.g. Australia XD
Only if she doesn't drag Chase with her ;D
Oh, absolutely!Chase stays XD
May I just throw out the idea of a livejournal-wide boycott of TWoP? I had my account banned for calling mod Nikita a fascist, which she is.If everyone here is pissed off about the Umbridge-like moderation going down at TWoP, can we all do something about it?
Works for me (I'm already off the system there) - seehttp://community.livejournal.com/h_us_w/10650.htmlPoeia had some suggestions if you scroll down the thread.
I don't know why, but when I click that link it tells me it's "Forbidden". Help?
Hmm, it may be a friends-only post. Check that you've friended the comm & that your cookies are intact!
Okay... I don't really know anymore than you guys have told me. But I'm hoping House/Wilson will be a bit more of an obvious ship. I wish Chase would come back. Cammie can stay away (forever, preferably) but we need Chase... and, maybe, Foreman...
Definitely need Chase! & yeah, I'm still undecided about Foreman. Jackass Foreman - no; finally got a clue Foreman, maybe yes ;D
