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!
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.
