At TCA last month, House creator/executive producer David Shore wasn't interested in making any fuss over his show filming its 100th episode. "It just annoyed me that everybody was getting excited about the 100th episode," he said, adding that it seemed like kind of an arbitrary time to care. "If we had nine fingers, would episode 81 be the big one?"
So we shouldn't expect House to blow out a bunch of birthday candles tonight; the show isn't going out of its way to make a Very Special Episode for No. 100. But that's not saying it won't be good: Last week's episode set up some interesting stuff, especially with Foreman and Thirteen, and a lot of that should be coming to a head tonight.
In the episode, called "The Greater Good," the case of a woman who gave up a high-powered career to pursue personal satisfaction makes House's team question their own happiness and life choices. Thirteen starts to suffer some side effects from Foreman's clinical trial switcharoo, and Cuddy decides to torture House even more than usual.
