Review - House Season 7 Episode 2 Selfish

For this review, let's just assume there was no patient this week. I don't want to consider the overly broad theme and pitiful characters. There's only Cuddy and House.

The writers didn't know exactly how to get Cuddy and House together without a plot contrivance, but now that we're here, they're proving to be adept at keeping them interesting and realistic without falling into patterns of too much cuddliness or snappiness.

House is stuck in a difficult position he's never been in before. He's in love with a woman who's also his boss and extends himself, even changing his routine to accommodate her. But there's still the House of old, the crotchety, snarky analyst who can be awfully cold sometimes. While the present issue gets resolved by the end of "Selfish," there's sure to be problems as the series continues. Let's hope the writers can continue with this sharp writing.

Score: 8.7/10
