Taub (Peter Jacobson) is getting a taste of his own medicine in a way as his wife Rachel has become emotionally involved in an ironic long-distance relationship. Her new confidante and friend is also the spouse of an unfaithful partner; Taub wants her to end it, and although they’ve never met, he considers it emotional involvement. All I can say is “good for you Rachel,” and don’t give up the supportive friend. You go, girl!
In the meantime, I think that both Omar Epps and Jesse Spencer as Foreman and Chase respectively are being underutilized. And that’s unfortunate. Both have had a few nice scenes here and there, but I hope the show picks up either on the fallout from season five’s Dibala affair or from his divorce from Cameron. The series writers are notorious for picking up on old threads and teasing them back to the surface, so I hope that happens in the not too distant future.
House comes back January 17. I will appearing on Fox’s Madison Wisconsin affiliate to talk about season seven (and Chasing Zebras, of course) sometime during that week (the interview is being taped January 13). I’ll post more information about that on my Twitter feed as time gets closer as well as details about a major book signing in Chicago coming up on January 20.
What do you hope to see on House in the coming months? Let me know in the comments thread! Wishing all of you a very happy new year!
