I'm sure a lot of people are waiting for this House episode - the one where James Earl Jones guest-stars as an African tyrant - a short pause for the gasps to subside. Jones (Luke, I am your father) will play controversial political leader President Dibala who falls ill and is brought to Princeton Plainsboro for treatment. The team then struggles with whether or not they will help a merciless dictator being subpoenaed for crimes against humanity in his country (the promo fails to mention if House will be part of the team, but he most probably will).
Elsewhere on "The Tyrant" Wilson tries to make peace with a feuding neighbor and House's (Hugh Laurie) prying is said to only make the problem worse. So expect more House-Wilson in this episode. Yey!
On the last episode of House
, House was finally discharged from Mayfield save for appointments with head shrink Dr. Darryl Nolan (Andre Braugher) - awesome interactions, by the way. At one point, they reached a breakthrough, I think, when House admitted once and for all: The hospital is part of my whole life. The patient of the week was a complex one, and bothered by symptom after symptom, he actually started posting them online and offered a prize for a correct diagnosis. In the end, it was revealed that it was, after all, House who had the correct diagnosis, to the chagrin of temp head of diagnostic Foreman (Omar Epps).
Meanwhile, there was very limited, but juicy, interaction between House and Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein). At one point, though, she told him she'd miss him, and there was a panicked look in his face for a split second. I wouldn't count on it, however, since Edelstein revealed in a recent interview
that her character will try to move on from House this season.
