House > House Season Finale Review: A Cliffhanging Crash > Comments Page 3
That episode should end the series. Obvious writers can't salvage the old House character. Laurie is still a hellofa actor but this has ran out of story.
I agree with Jessica, I think the entire episode was a dream in House's head. I did not Season 7 because of the horrific Huddy. I started hating Cuddy in Season 3 during the Tritter arc when she committed perjury for House. Pathetic. The only reason I watched the finale was because I read that LE will not be coming back for S8. Huddy was the biggest ratings killer of House. She does not need to come back because the story is about House. I don't care about Cuddy or Huddy or baby momma drama. I am so glad the Huddy is over and LE will not be coming back. I wish her the best somewhere else.
Lol Taub's double pregnancy, never have I laughed and screamed at the TV before.
Cuddy grr... I mean what happened this season? She gets a match made in heaven and blows it. I MEAN HOW ANNOYINGLY STUPID! Yet oddly enough we all know people like this in real life... Then she doesn't give House a second chance, instead going for some clean shaven poser. While I condemn House's clearly homicidal act here, Cuddy did kind of deserve it.
If they don't make a season 8, I actually think this is a kind of happy ending, at least for House himself. He has finally gotten rid of the pain in a big way i.e. Cuddy. I always thought he'd off himself in the last episode ever.
I kept hoping that House hadn't attempted to harm Cuddy, but that the performance artist had framed him.
I think this last episode was entirely a dream. There's no way it was real and you can't sweep under the rug attempted murder, destruction of property and God knows what other crimes they can charge him with (being under the influence, forging prescriptions which they will surely find in his apartment when they search it). I don't even know what to say about this. If House has fled miraculously to the Caribbean or some other place, he did it pretty quick and without a change of clothes either. If this is real he can't go back because he'll wind up in prison not to mention he'll have lost his license and his job and his only two friends in the world.
The only alternative here is that it's some kind of dream or hallucination. I was hoping that most of the season had been that but so far nothing has come of that theory. So, only thing I can come up with is that he somehow went into a coma or is dreaming sometime after his surgery on himself or at the hospital and that in the S8 opener
I was half expecting House to say:
"Your House is now gone"
When returning the brush to Cuddy.
@Leonard she didn't lie, she wasn't dating or thinking of dating that man when he asked.
It hasn't jumped the shark. The car thing is ridiculous, but most of what House does is ridiculous...have we become so desensitized to the normal ludicrous actions House does that we can only get jolted out of it by a slightly more ridiculous one? This seems like something House would do. Perfectly fine.
However, the issue is that the episode didn't convey the sense of accumulating angst and tension that was supposed to culminate in the meltdown. It felt artificial. We can see why he did it, but we can't feel why he did it...and I've always been able to feel why House has done something absurd in the past (ignore how absurd this sounds). That's my main issue with this season. Harking back to when House did that spontaneous jump off the hotel balcony - yeah, it's something crazy, which is House's M.O., but it didn't feel properly built...mentioning something once or twice in an episode isn't the same as emotionally preparing the audience to make the leap with him.
That's my opini
@Anon: Very good point. House did release his emotions for once, it's true. He clearly felt good about what he did, so perhaps I did look at it wrong and this wasn't an example of a low for House. In a strange way, it was a high.
Does nobody get the point? It's plain and simple!
House asked "Are you seeing anyone?" And Cuddy said "No."
And there he is in the end, seeing her with another man in her house... she obviously lied to him. And he didn't want any ties with that anymore. How the heck did everybody miss that?!?!
I don't think he tried to kill cuddy, but i think that sense she caused him so much pain that he didn't want her to have a relationship, and IMO if i was any guy and some lunatic drove through a wall while i was on a date i probably wouldn't be seeing that person again.
I thought it was great. What a crazy guy. Totally normal thing for him to do.
cuddy tells the officer that she has to pick up her daughter so she was never there to begin with it was daytime house knew her at school
Maybe it was all in his mind that he meant to do it maybe his leg messed up and the island is a dream because he is unconscious
That was just idiotic. I loved this show up until this season. Don't know what happened but it just lost all it's magic.
If that last episode was 'real', I don't know where they go from there. Or maybe it was just a hallucination. Either way it was so absolutely inconsistent with anything from this episode - or even this season - that it put me off the show entirely.
I feel that house is definitely hallucinating the tropical island thing, Come on Wilson said that House took a whole bottle of Vicodin in three days that was supposed to last a month “Are you kidding me”. An other thing Driving your car into some HOUSE knowing that you could kill someone and after you just got out the hospital for performing surgery on your own leg can make one think the guy has completely loss his mind. And I Know every one of you thought house was shooting up Heroin this season.Right!
House is supposed to be smart. Risking killing someone... including cuddy's daughter... who could have been playing on the floor was just stupid. Now he's lost his job... will have a warrant for his attempted murder...assault to do bodily harm... vandalism charges... wreckless driving... etc. Sure its neat to see him happy on a beach but its going to be hard to buy hookers as an old Guy without a job. He better start his own practice and hire 13 so they can finally hook up... turn her straight... and cure her misdiagnoses terminal disease! Lol. I look forward to season 8. I hope house turns into a functioning alcoholic instead of a pill-popper. Maybe he'll amputate that leg and send it to Wilson. With this show... nothing would surprise me. They should let me write a few episodes ... I couldn't do any worse.
My wife commented that it was only appropriate that the last scene took place at the beach since the show has officially jumped the shark.
I hope this brings end to Cuddy character. I think writers might be going for that too. Her character in the show had become annoying and took show away from what it was during 1st 3 or seasons. I hope that character is done with.
House looked happy in the end, and I think that would divert this show back to what it was originally. Maybe Cameron would come back as in charge of hospital, who knows. Cuddy would probably change her mind about arresting House like she always has done. She will move on and new one would step in and this show would hopefully be revived.
Of course all this is just speculation. But I am looking forward to next season.
It seemed like it was missing something... I don't know what, just SOMETHING. I don't really know where they're going to go from here. With Cuddy (possibly) no longer in the show, what on earth is going to happen with the plot? Also, the last scene sort of confused me. Did he just hop a flight to some beach? Was that some sort of delusional dream? Either way, I'm definitely going to watch season 8, and hope that it doesn't disappoint.
I think it was a dream sequence.
Since I missed the first minute of the show, I'm thinking the nite scene was a foreshadowing of the end of the show. Otherwise when I watch the previews, the nite scene doesn't make sense otherwise.
It was a "different" episode. Didn't feel typical...but typical isn't always good either....gotta shake it up a bit I guess. Only today did I find out Cuddy wasn't coming back next season....that sucks...sheesh. Oh well....I'm a loyal House fan and will watch all the seasons in the future, which I hear the 8th is the last. Onto the re-runs now.
Wow, all the hate. /boggle
The people booing this episode are nuts.
That was awesome. The relief that last action had on House was palpable – like removing the weight off the top of a pressure cooker to let all the steam rush out.
LOL @ people getting all crazy on Twitter, etc. over this episode.
Can they not see that no matter how criminal, House made a HUGE step in dealing with his inner turmoil? They probably are only interested in seeing him suffer.
I was overjoyed to see that House actually got some relief from that action. Remember in the beginning, when Wilson was telling the cops where to look?
“Someplace that matches how he is feeling right now”.
Then in the end, we see a sunny bright beautiful beach. That’s relief baby!
I have loved watching House for the last 7 years. The ending for me is House telling Cuddy to kiss off finally. Can't wait for next year. I will be watching reruns!!!
I must have taken it differently than others, because this ending was pure House. Both Wilson and Cuddy have been nagging him for a long time about his not expressing his emotions. And when he saw her with the other guy, he snapped. It was venting, in a destructive Houseian way. Once it was out of his system, he was ready to move on. Wilson says he'll be in a place that reflects his mood... and I think he was.
