Subject: DawnWatch: Please encourage House to keep the new vegan character 5/8/07

Last night, Tuesday May 8, the Fox hit series “House” introduced a potential new character, a vegan nutritionist named Honey. We meet her when she comes into the clinic with her boyfriend of six months, who tells House that they are both vegan because Honey has taught him how healthy a vegan diet is. But when House examines the boyfriend’s stool, he tells them that he knows the man has been cheating. Honey thinks House means with another woman, and she doesn’t seem too concerned. Then she understands that he has been “eating flesh” and she is mortified that he has lied to her about that. But she doesn’t seem kooky — she is pretty and witty. House has clearly taken a shining to her, and we learn later in the show that he got her phone number. Actually, he got it on a job application. Suddenly he is thinking of hiring a nutritionist.

In the last scene of the episode, House meets Honey in a bar. She suggests that he hasn’t really called the meeting because he wants to offer her a job. But we don’t get an answer — that is left open. There is fun flirtatious banter between them, then the show ends.

The episode is recapped in full at http://www.fox.com/house/recaps/322.htm. In the photo gallery on that page, photos 4, 5 and 6 are of Honey. You will see why the writers have given her that name and why House is enchanted.
