Dr. Cuddy's departure has left a gap, although it is one previously worked through at different times. Fans of "House" are relieved it is renewed and want resolution. If I could write a theme for Season 8, it would consist of hope and promise, showing the things that the medical field is capable of doing when the entire team gets together and works toward a cause.
This year, Dr. Gregory House will acknowledge a call inviting him to a meeting of select medical professionals from around the area. With no indication of what it is about, the good doctor tells everyone about the upcoming meeting, where it is at and when it is scheduled. Surprisingly, Wilson received the same call and the two make plans to go together.
Since House is the temporary administrator, there is no administrator to panic about the school's two top doctors attending a meeting at another hospital. The staff that works with House and Wilson, however, is upset, believing it is an attempt to lure the two away from Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. When Wilson and House arrive at the conference, it is to find a completely different situation involving an opportunity for medical personnel to help each other.
An introduction of "who's who" draws raises eyebrows on many a participant as they realize the best of the best are present and notice one more thing. Approximately half of the people present have some type of medical problem. The idea matches two or three professionals to a team, where each member shares his or her specialty and also any medical problem or problems. Wilson, invited to join a doctor about his own age, finds out the doctor has a rapidly growing brain tumor. Wilson tells him of his specialty in oncology.
House, teamed with an RN who has recently experienced temporary loss of feeling in her left hand, explains the situation with his leg and the erratic procedures used at times to resolve the pain and restore perfect use of his leg.
With a pledge to spend at least four hours a week with the team, all the medical personnel are challenged to think of what can be done to resolve another's situation. Guaranteed funding and equipment will allow breakthroughs in knowledge and skill. All participants are eager to heal or be healed, proving to the community that hope should burn until the end.
