Quick thought on House 5.05 "Lucky Thirteen"

[climbing on soapbox] 

It caused me physical pain last night, hearing Wilson call his beloved friend a drug addict.  And put us back to square one; I'd been so pleased, the week before, when Wilson hadn't argued with House's 'Vicodin as leash' theory.  I'd believed that Wilson finally, finally was undergoing a change in his perspective of the pills.  And last night, of course it didn't help when House referred to himself as a "doctor with a drug habit." I know--how they, and we, view the Vicodin pretty much depends on who's writing the episode.  So much for continuity in such an important aspect of the character, and the show.

i'm going with blackmare's theory on this, that house and wilson understand that house is not an addict, and that the term is a convenient [if ill-advised] shorthand.

as to me, well, if i didn't have the pain, then i could not write house the way i do. i'm convinced of this, and i see it as one good thing, a gift that the pain gives me.

I take a bow for you in deeply respect that you think about it in that way. I'm impressed.
