can you sense the tension in this scene? can you see the struggle in his eyes? he knew that the moment he told the truth, her hand would slip away from his and things would change forever. yet, he chose to speak at the very instant she released her heart from its prison of doubt, only to throw it into the familiar grip of betrayal.
…and they say the truth will set you free.
i could not help but hit the “print screen” button right at this moment because it captured perfectly the significance of what was about to happen next. the reaching for her hand just before he moved to the foreground, the focus on his eyes and his wedding ring…it was an absolute stroke of directorial genius.
season 6 of “House” just keeps getting better!
