Stupid Question about Last Resort

"Either the drugs kill me or he kills me, doesn't seem to make a lot of difference." 

Maybe I'm just stupid. But shouldn't it make a difference?  The whole reason the idiot has been forcing 13 to take the drugs is so he can see if there are any interactions since she's taken all the drugs he has.  However, he's aware that she has Huntington’s that she is reacting badly and differently than him to most of the medications so far. He's been told outright she will die if she takes the last med.

So if she's gonna die from taking the last med how can he tell if she's going to have any interactions? She's gonna die. End of story.

Is it just me or is this a huge logical problem the show ignored?  It could be just me I can miss the forest for the tress sometimes.

I think you're overthinking this. :)

I swear, I decided LONG ago to just enjoy House and not try to make sense of *anything* that's said on that show. Because very little of it stands up under scrutiny. When you take off the Huddy-colored glasses what's there (arrogant doctor sexually harassing his boss and she not only doesn't fire him, she enables him) is so far past believable it's pretty ridiculous.

LOL Kim, ::hugs you::

Thank you for the very timely reality check. I'm cashing it right now. ;-)

Usually I'm pretty good about suspending disbelief but I hit that logic road bump harder then I normally do and it was driving me crazy.

i actually caught this, too, hon... i was like... wait... if it's killing *her* regardless, due to her huntingtons/kidney failure... how does it do him any good to give it to her? just cause it's killing *her* doesn't mean it'd necessarily kill him... i didn't think that made sense, either, and i felt like house would have pointed out that it didn't make sense... i think it made sense for the hostage-taker to insist on it, because he was irrational and trying to maintain control, but house would have pointed it out :P

I've been thinking about this all night, and I think you're right. House should have caught it. (at the very least).

The only way i've managed to reconcile it is that people weren't thinking clearly because of the stress of the situation. So that and Kimbari's "It's a TV Show" reality check have allowed me to reconcile the problem.

It's funny I can handle problems in the medicine or even the occasional continuity blip, but errors in logic are hard for me to swallow.

That gave me a "WTF?" moment, as well.

I know, it's like "huh?" I hate it when the whole plot falls apart because of a logical problem, It really bugs me. Still i will get over it :-) ::: it's a tv show it's a tv show:::: mumbles to self.
