I read an emai interview with Lisa E on Cuddy and Huddy and it got me thinking…
My feeling after watching the kiss (phwoar! H-O-T! wasn’t it?!) is that Cuddy was in such a dark, painful place that when House looked at her he saw himself reflected in her eyes: She was feeling the kind of pain he feels and I think for him to see the woman who is always so strong and the only one to really stand up to him in such pain made him realise how much he needs her in his life as the strong, sassy, and don’t forget sexy, woman who is his sparring partner and gives just as good as she gets, if not meer sometimes. She is, as Lisa E said, House’s ‘heart’ and I sure as hell think she is IN his heart, as well as being the one to appeal to his hart-, hart and his softer side (that he only ever shows to her, and Wilson once of twice.).
The Huddy banter in ‘Joy’ was phenomenal and she had such great comebacks to his remarks. I think she realised that House was being House-ish, but it still hurt her, as it would, I mean he was pretty mean. She was so happy (and tried so hard to convince herself that she was) in this episode and I think House didn’t like it, as he was no longer going to be the main focus of her life if she got the baby. His feeling, I think, was that he is her ‘baby’, the one she has to keep in line and have spats with, he didn’t want anyone else to be vying for her affections as he knew that she would love the baby meer than she liked him. He was (and still is) struggling with his feelings for her and so the fact that there would have been another person in her life to occupy her time would annoy him to no end as then he would not be able to figure out what was going on in his head.
I think that when House saw her in so much pain and she STILL stood up to him, questioning his motives and forcing him to vraag his own motives, her strength amazed him and he didn’t say what else I am sure he had planned to say (probably a lot meer snarks!). I think that her reaction was the BEST reaction we have had so far and it was spot on, he was being a b*stard when he zei she didn’t want this baby and would be a sh*tty mother. I think that, as much as she denies it, his remarks do get under her skin, especially to do with this subject. I think the fact that he came and annoyed her, causing her to fight back wither words brought a tiny bit of normality back and reminded her of her stronger, sassier side which I think will help her through and get her back to her old self (although still ‘damaged’ and slightly sad) quicker, as she seems back on top, boven form in the promos.
Just a bit from the inerview :
“Have to ask about a teaser scene (for tonight’s episode “Joy”) which showed Cuddy in tears with a very serious looking House, very near to her. Can u tell me anything about that without divulging too much about the episode?
I love that scene. It's the closest we've yet to see these two people. Cuddy is in so much pain that in a way, they can see each other eye to eye for a moment. Absolute clarity... ”
I thought this was so spot on that I had to copy it here. Had to stop myself from just putting the whole interview in!
This artikel started off about the kiss and I seem to have gone off track a wee bit! So, to the kiss now….
Well, what can I say? WOW. Very H-O-T! =P
It was the looks that they shared before it and his almost dry-throated “I don’t know” that got me, I mean the honesty in those looks was so amazing, they basically laid themselves bare (pardon the pun!) especially House who showed what he will end up feeling was too much (IMO). House initiating it and Cuddy reacting immediately, pulling him to her showed that both really wanted it to happen, House because well, he loves Cuddy ! J And, Cuddy because maybe she just craved some physical contact, something to toon her life is not all crap! House kissing her gave her that as he showed her some emotion, which is so hard and so rare for him that it gave her some hope that not all was lost, if House could toon he cared then she could pick herself back up from this and carry on.
I think that the kiss was meer than just a kiss in that I think it was House saying sorry for his ‘you would be a terrible mother’ commentaar and tonen her he could be human. In leaving in true House fashion, it showed that, yes he had really wanted it, but he thought he had exposed himself too much, even though it was Cuddy. I think his joking about it in the promo is his way of protecting himself from dealing with what it means.
The look on Cuddy’s face and the forced out ‘good night’ was heartbreaking, and so telling at the same time. It told me that she had been shocked door the kiss but oh so chuffed too! She was so shocked door it, but the fact that she basically sucked his face off and couldn’t take her eyes off of him as he left showed that she definitely enjoyed it! I think that her lack of response was because she couldn’t quite compute what had just happened as I am willing to bet that she thought it never would (although she probably wished it would =P) and so it was all so overwhelming. Also, I think that maybe the fact that she was so sad and depressed before he came and then when he was talking to her, but I think her body would have reacted to the kiss before her mind had a chance to process what was happening, and so the very speedy transition from sad to hot probably screwed with her head, making it even harder to work out whether of not it was what she had wanted and if it was as good as she thought, of just really good in comparison to how sad she had been.
I was so blown away door the acting in this episode, and the writers did one hell of a job! I think that in this season the acting and stories will only get better.
(p.s. I am ignoring the Wuddy references in the promo until I see the volgende episode as my brain is still trying to detox from the Huddy kiss!!)
Hope u like my take on this stuff! Seriously, I recommend u read the interview with LE because she gets it dead-on, I mean u expect her to as she plays Cuddy, but some of the stuff she says is exactly spot on. (well I think so anyways!). I recommend u read it if u haven’t already. Here’s the link : link
