About House, M.D.

House, also known as House, M.D., was a critically-acclaimed American medical drama television series created by David Shore and executively produced by film director Bryan Singer. The Emmy and Peabody award-winning medical drama debuted on the FOX Network on November 16, 2004, and aired its last episode on May 21, 2012.

For eight years the show brought in people from around the globe, bringing intrigue and mystery in the form of unusual medical cases in a vein reminiscent of the mysteries solved by Sherlock Holmes. Furthermore, these cases were the catalyst for the discussion of philosophical and ethical issues and decisions, a lot of which were not left with a clear victor, but all of which revealed more and more of the character of each of the different doctors that comprised the team each year. In the end, while the team didn't completely understand (or appreciate) House's methods fully, the show gives a final hurrah as each of the members walks away with something they realize was the right thing to do after all. Although the mantra "Everybody Lies" is proven over and over again, the concept that "people never change, they only come up with better lies" is tested up until the last moments as the characters (and the show) drive off into an adventure left to the imagination.

Everything is challenged, nothing is sacred, and the most profound revelations of life can be found within the 172 hours of television given over the course of the eight seasons of pill-popping, dripping sarcasm, dark humor, and intelligent storytelling ever to grace the small screen of the living room (or large screen, if that may be the case, but then...everybody lies). This wiki is intended for your perusal to catch up, read, make new or more complete connections on various subject matter, or perhaps relive the funny if outrageous times given to us by actor Hugh Laurie and company.

Jessica Adams

Dr. Jessica Adams was a major character on House during the last season of the series. She was one of the latest members to join House's Diagnostic Team. Originally, she was a prison doctor who appeared in the season premiere of the eighth season. She worked at the prison where Gregory House was jailed after he crashes his car into Cuddy's living room. 

She met House in the episode Twenty Vicodin, and from there, they shared a special relationship. She joined House's Diagnostic Team in the third episode of season 8. She worked with the new team consisting of Dr. Park, Dr. Taub and Dr. Chase.

After House's "fake death", she's present during his funeral, and after that, she stays in the team, only with Park and Taub, because Chase is the new Head of Diagnostics.

She was portrayed by Odette Annable.

Character Background

Adams was born to a wealthy family sometime in the mid-1980s. Her family is "old money" - her ancestors have lived in the United States most likely since the days of the Revolutionary War and gained their wealth while the United States was a British colony. She shares a surname with the 2nd and 6th presidents of the United States and it is implied she is from the same family. She wears an old locket that House correctly pegged as being handed down through the generations and, since it's very expensive, that her family must have been wealthy.

Although she had loving dedicated parents who avoided the family dysfunction and infidelities typical of their generation and income group, in her junior year of high school she ran away from home in the mistaken belief that dysfunctional families (like the ones of her friends with divorced or adulterous parents) were somehow "deeper". However, after living with an older man for two months, she returned home. Although her grades had been good to that point, after returning, she completed her junior and senior years with straight A's and continued her studious ways into college.

After completing medical school and her internship, she served her residency at Johns Hopkins Medical School. She wears her Osler scarf on Fridays as per their tradition. It was never revealed where Adams went to college or medical school, or what her medical specialty was. ....
