In the next episode of "House M.D.", an agoraphobic man falls ill and refuses to leave his home to be treated at the hospital. Therefore, House and the team go to his home to figure out what might be wrong.

Cameron takes charge of the case as she had treated the patient in the past and she and the team figure out ways to treat him at his home. However, the patient's condition worsens and it becomes difficult to treat him at his home, therefore House and the team plan to get the man into the hospital for surgery without causing any problems.

Meanwhile, Cameron and Chase attempt to work through issues in their relationship, and House deals with an annoying itch he cannot seem to scratch, with Wilson making his own analogies about the problem. Cuddy wants to talk about their kiss, but House hinders the subject.

Called "The Itch", the episode will be back on screen in two weeks time on November 11 to give time slot for the November 4 election.

Don't you remember years back, you so-called House fans? Whine all you want about how he changed. But that's because you never saw his past relationship, and what happened relating to it...if I'm remembering it right. He also didn't want her to get a baby because...well...I'm not about to tell you. If you really are a true fan of the show, you should be able to figure out why he's been doing what he's been doing. Deal. I've really been sympathizing with him. Poor guy...:/

I was a big fan of House from the pilot episode and I agree with Goodbye, House!. The show has changed substantially from a medically based mystery to a soap-opera like farce. Greg House looks the same but the intelligence and the humanity is gone, and so is much of the good writing. If you're not a fan of the painful House/Cuddy "romance" or the even more painful Thirteen, there's little left to enjoy. Throwing a sop to the fans of the original team in this episode doesn't even begin to make up for making me watch House acting 8 years old around Cuddy. Any time they want to bring back the original show, I'll be back to watch it.

House is still house. Just think, why would he say "forget it!" to her when she tries to talk about the kiss? (Promo Ep. 7 - The Itch). He'll drive Cuddy and Wilson crazy about it the same way he did about other things. And Cuddy knows House very well...

Look, if you think they've jumped the shark, you obviously aren't a real fan of the show. House is still House. If you ask me, it's more interesting now than it ever has been. I do agree that the medical mysteries seem to be a little weak lately, though. "It's never Lupus."

After that completely out of character Huddy kiss last night, I'm officially done with this show. I put up with the cast changes as long as I could, but you just cannot have character changes on top of cast changes. House just isn't House anymore. And do they really think giving Cameron/Chase an episode of ample air time in any way makes up for their nonexistence in season 4 and 5 so far? Hell of a no. David Shore, thank you for killing such an amazing show. Looking forward to seeing the ratings drop.

I've seen every episode and I agree that since maybe beginning/mid-season four, its seems as though House's character has changed. Of course all of the characters have grown, but lately I've sensed subtle changes in House. While House and Cuddy have had chemistry, I've never felt it to be as sexual as any Huddy shipper plays it out to be. I've always thought of it as more of a playful friendship. House and Stacy, to me, had much more chemistry than House and Cuddy. Also, it sucks because the episodes aren't really about medical cases anymore! The medical stuff seems to have all been pushed into the background, which I personally don't care for. I'll still tune in, but I very much miss what House used to be.

I don't know why people keep talking about character changes...House is still house. He tormented Cuddy throughout the episode of "Joy" like he always does to the people he likes...In the end she proved him wrong; She really did want a baby, very badly, and house is attracted to those who prove him wrong. It's why he negated himself at the end of the episode. There has been no character change! Cuddy and house have had sexual tension throughout the entire show. I think the kiss has been long's season 5 for goodness sakes. And who knows what will come of it? Don't give up on House just bc you're all for Cameron x House or whatever. The writing is still top notch, and hugh laurie is still a god. :D

House and Cuddy have been flirting since season 1. She ususally rejects him, but in this last episode, she was emotionally vulnerable. Go back and watch the first few seasons and you'll see what I mean.

there's a difference between character changes and character development - which seems to be the case. House is a person - even if a fictional one :D - not at all predictable; so, I don't think we gain anything with these fundamentalist views of his behavior. there.
