When do cameron and chase start dating
(“House” will air four episodes starting April 28; for more on what will happen in those episodes, go here; you can also go to the end of this item, where I've posted Fox's plot summaries for the four episodes).
I’ll be posting the complete transcript of my conversation with Shore as “House’s” return date gets closer, but here’s the part of the interview that touched on Chase and Cameron situation (and this part is not spoilery).
"House" doesn't return until April 28, but there's plenty to talk about before then.
For one thing, there’s a vocal subset of “House” fans who are not pleased with the lack of screen time that Allison Cameron (Jennifer Morrison) and Robert Chase (Jesse Spencer) have gotten thus far in Season 4.
In what I found to be an entertaining story line, last fall 40 potential candidates for House’s diagnostic team were winnowed down to three new staffers over first half of the season.
“House” viewers will recall that Chris Taub (Peter Jacobson), Lawrence Kutner (Kal Penn) and Thirteen (Olivia Wilde) made the cut, and that the driven candidate Amber Volakis (Anne Dudek) remains on the scene as James Wilson’s girlfriend.
Has that been challenging, trying to integrate all those characters? That’s what I mean by being ahead of the curve a little bit [earlier in the interview, we talked about the writers doing the Season 4 "Survivor" challenge as a way to shake up the show before it got too set in its ways].
In the following episode, "Teamwork", Cameron and Chase were supposed to leave House's team and the hospital because of Dibala's death and to save their relationship but House tells Chase his theory on Cameron's weird acting.
He believes Cameron feels it was his fault that Chase did what he did, as he would have created the foul climate for it to happen.
Both Cameron and Chase had been there for a while at the time of the pilot. And if he wasn’t who he is, you wouldn’t like him as much.
And it’s sort of something that becomes I think fake on TV – that people stay in these roles forever. But I think they also are enjoying [the fact that their characters are] not intimidated by House.
