When a major character disappears from a prominent series such as "House," there is usually some type of resolution. Look at "Two and a Half Men." Even characters switching from one spin-off to another have some excuse. Lisa Edelstein (Dr. Cuddy) did not officially refuse to sign a new contract until late May. Whatever happens, it will be without Dr. Cuddy's presence. Here are some possible scenarios outlined by the characters themselves, all purely speculation from the imagination of the writer.
Gregory House Explains Guilt
I cannot understand why I did what I did, leading Cuddy on that way. Medicine and near-impossible cures I can commit to. Togetherness is a challenge I cannot seem to handle. At times, I believe the drugs have the best of me. A part of my being insists they have the ability to make me forget the problem with my leg, which on the surface seems very egotistical. I see people with far worse problems daily at the hospital and yet I continue to act like a spoiled, irresponsible, insensitive fool. No wonder she has not shown up to work.
James Wilson, Head of Oncology and Womanizer
Deep down I know there is something I should have done to help Cuddy with Greg. When it comes to women, I am usually sympathetic and there for them, no matter what the problem is. Basically, Greg was my friend first, before any of my wives, co-workers or bosses, including Dr. Cuddy. I am sure she has figured out by now that something I said probably led to the crash at her place, and with Greg refusing to comply with the restraining order, she probably does not feel like coming in to work.
Dr. Eric Foreman and Honesty
Truthfully, I am a bit confused over the hush-hush attitude surrounding Dr. Cuddy. Dr. House has a lot going for him, despite the drug addiction. He has courage and he is tenacious. She knew what he was like going into this job. He cannot change himself, much less let anyone else change him. Why not tell everyone now she got a better offer and just leave it at that?
