I've just watched 'Selfish'...
WOW WOW WOW!!!!! ASDUYUEUEIOFIOFVMNKXSKLDLKLFGDFG!!!! So much 2 talk about, but I will try my best while still on a major high!!! :) :) :)
I absolutely LOVED this to pieces!!!! It managed to balance light-hearted clinic duty (the two elderly gentlemen were SRSLY a major highlight!! :D :D :D) with the darker emotions of the POW, who completely broke my heart with her performance, her brother too.
I actually paid attention to the patient this week, as her case was so riveting and interesting. Alyson Stoner was brilliant. :) :)
And I can't not mention the EPIC EPIC Huddy scenes this week. AWDHASDJSFKS!! From start to finish, I was glued to the screen, so I'll just do a brief recap of my top moments. (WHICH WERE ALL OF THEM RLY!! LOL LOL)
OMG, THE PARKING LOT AND THEM HOLDING HANDS!!!!! XD XD XD AND THE ASS-GRAB!!!!
Then of course, House's amazing subtlety!
'Why Doctor Cuddy, how was your WEEKEND??' *massive wink*
LOL LOL And the 'Mooom' made me grin. ASDHASGDJSAH at the look they shared before Cuddy left. House is totally smitten!!!! :D :D :D
The part with House and Cuddy in Wilson's office had me dying dying dying!!!! XD XD XD That scene was my favourite sneak peek, second to the parking lot one, and it didn't disappoint. :) :) :)
Meeting with HR, MAJOR LOLZ!! AND CUDDY GOING SOUTH!!!!!! XD XD XD XD
Every moment with House asking for Cuddy's approval for a procedure, I was on the edge of my seat. That was the first test for them in their new relationship. Will he still take orders from her??? Could they still retain that employer/employee dynamic?? Great to watch.
That scene with them in bed... *thud*
'I want your drama, the touch of your hand
I want your leather-studded kiss in the sand,
I want your love,
LAHV LAHV LAHV!!!
I want your love!!'
:D :D :D WHEN HE LIFTED THE SHEET I DIED!!! And I absolutely adored the way they were looking at each other, soft and tender, I remembered back to those amazing opening scenes in 'Now What'. They just look perfect together. :) :) :)
'CUDDY AND I ARE NAKED RIGHT NOW...' *SQUEE*
KJDSFHKAJFHAKSJDF WHEN SHE CARESSED HIS ARM DURING THE PHONECALL!!!! SKDJFHSK!!! AND HOUSE BRIBING MARINA FOR AN EXTRA HOUR!!! XD XD XD XD MOAR KISSING!!! :D :D
Of course, it wasn't going to go swimmingly for the entire time. It was bound to happen that their issues would crop up. That scene in the pathology when they faced each other, and it was so tense and emotional, I can't even.
The argument. The argument. It was riveting, explosive, compelling, one of the best scenes of the eppie and this season so far, if I'm completely honest.
Seriously, they both know how to push each other's buttons, especially when it came to House saying 'This is your area of expertise' and I could see the hurt in Cuddy's eyes when she fired back at him about him bullying patients.
When they stood together watching the family united, I teared up a little. They were united as well,
The closing scene was so beautiful, especially following such a blow up in the previous scene. They were lucky this time, with the case ending theAnd Cuddy's right about them being honest with each other, even in a fight. Honesty is a vital part of any relationship, and I'm sure that they will overcome that hurdle no problem.
But of course, in true Houseian fashion...
'You've got a big ass' *grab*
And Cuddy takes his hand away... and interlaces their fingers AIKJWGDAKSJF!!!
Such a MASSIVE parallel with 'Help Me'!!!! :D :D :D
Overall, I really enjoyed this episode. There was the intriguing case of the week, coupled with a well-handled and realistic exploration of House and Cuddy's relationship.
If this is the tone for the entire season, then I'm looking forward to this year even more. :) :) :)
