House Season Finale Reaction: A Major Lashing Out

Yes, House fans, that really happened.

In reaction to the shocking events on last night's season finale, creator David Shore makes it clear in a new interview: House really did drive a car through Cuddy''s living room. Why?

House Season Finale Scene

"I’ve always thought House was capable of killing people close to him," Shore laughed to TV Line. "That’s not to say he was ever going to do it, and I don’t think he would. And even in that moment, I don’t think he wanted to kill anybody. But who knows? Probably part of his mind did. It was a lashing out - a very extreme lashing out. I don’t think it was a murderous lashing out."

'Ruined House as a character'? Can everyone lay off the writers please? Sure, it was a little over the top and I would have preferred it to be presented in a way that made me understand House's actions instead of being shocked by them, but the amount of negativity being thrown at the writers is unprecedented. Let's not forget that these are the people who made us fall in love with the show in the first place. We've had 7 seasons surrounding the same character, can you imagine how difficult it must be to portray him well enough to keep people interested without doing stunts. All some people can focus on are the flaws, not the things that keep us all coming back week after week. It wasn't one of the better finales, in my opinion, but I still love House and appreciate all the hard work that's gone into making the show what it is.

This poll.... these options... I CAN'T EVEN...
And David Shore didn't need to explain that the crash was not murderous lashing out. That was PERFECTLY CLEAR and PORTRAYED. Except for the people who are always trying to make a big deal outta nothing...

House Quotes

People don't get what they deserve. They just get what they get. There's nothing any of us can do about it.

House

House: Lift up your arms. You have a parasite.
Jill: Like a tapeworm or something?
House: Lie back and lift up your sweater. You can put your arms down.
Jill: Can you do anything about it?
House: Only for about a month or so. After that it becomes illegal to remove, except in a couple of states.
Jill: Illegal?
House: Don't worry. Many women learn to embrace this parasite. They name it, dress it up in tiny clothes, arrange playdates with other parasites...
Jill: Playdates...
House: (showing her sonogram) It has your eyes.
