It was hinted in a preview in last weeks episode; but I just now saw for the first time in print about 13’s whereabouts on house…
[spoiler]…Not only will said episode mark the return of Olivia Wilde to the House, but it has been revealed that Thirteen’s 17-episode disappearance will be attributed to the fact that she was in prison.
“The Big Dig” Episode Description
Thirteen has been in prison for the past year, but the real mystery for House is what she did to get there. When she exits the prison, she is taken aback to find him waiting for her, and unaware he’s got plans for the two of them for the next few days. As House probes Thirteen for more information about her crime, intent on solving the puzzle of her mysterious incarceration, they travel to an annual spud-gun competition and join forces to compete against House’s much younger, overconfident rival, and along the journey uncover secrets and truths about each other.
Sounds like a fun episode. I’m enjoying the episodes that diverge from the regular POTW formula. I actually liked the song and dance episode; the episode where they go to the Renaissance Fair, House in the detox unit; and I really liked the episode that focused on Cuddy for the entire episode. That last one was especially good because of the background stuff going on… i.e. a gurney going by with House’s team giving CPR to a patient. Great Stuff.
