Spoilery comments are spoilery for House season 8 finale.
I was pretty under whelmed to be honest. The first 50 minutes bored me, and the ending was totally predictable. We’ve had SO many season finales where House battles with his internal demons, trying to work out whether or not he’s worthy of love. They’ve done it better than that on many occasions. I have to admit that I liked that it was Cameron’s hallucination that finally prompted him to get off his ass and live – nice bit of reverse psychology there Cam. Cameron represents the part of him that believes he is capable of love. That is sweet. And she looked happy with her fella and her little baby. She deserves that. Oh and Robert Chase MD for the win!
The very ending was satisfying. Wilson manages to look tame and pussy cat- like in bike leathers – I love it. But I think back to the emotional punch of something like Lost’s finale, or Six Feet Under, and it was just a bit meh by comparison. But like David Shore said, don’t judge the whole thing by that one episode, there were 176 more episodes before it.
I wonder how the Huddys feel – if they even watched it. I’m sorry, but something HUGE must have happened for Lisa Edelstein to not want to do a quick cameo. She must have her reasons, but it’s sad I think. It must sting to have things wrap up like that and not be part of it. Her absence was felt, for me at least. I’d take her over Stacy any day of the week (although, gotta hand it to Sela Ward for going back and doing her bit – good on her.) I particularly loved seeing Kutner and Cut Throat Bitch too!! And there was very little of 13! B-o-n-u-s points. And her line "He said he'd kill me. I respected him for that" or whatever it was. The most ridiculous line ever in the history of any TV show. I just kept thinking how inappropriate it was. Then I laughed. Out loud. Not funeral appropriate 13, just, shhh sit down. The whole funeral scene was a bit awkward actually. Probably because it was obvious House was still alive.
It was definitely time to end though. Does that mean we get Hugh Laurie back now then? I hope so.
