Annable's character is a doctor in the prison where House is doing time at the beginning of Season 8. Shore says the two will develop a connection:
"She’s working in prison and there’s a bit of a connection—not a physical connection. But she doesn’t really know House. He’s just a prisoner. Then things change. He changes her, and she changes him.”
Shore and the cast have been enjoying working with Annable, who Shore says is "great, she’s smart, she’s funny. We’re excited about it.”
Shore also promises the team is looking to return to “the basics” of the show and “the fundamental questions of right and wrong.” So, no more driving cars into buildings, then?
