This episode featuring the hockey enforcer was solid, nice characterizations, and Taub finally getting a lightbulb moment.

They all seem to be getting a turn at the lightbulb moment this season. Another amazingly subtle product placement from Ford this week - blink for 30 seconds and you would have missed it!

As I was watching last night's episode, I was thinking: "wow, with his green card wife, he's finally got a semi-functional relationship." So naturally, House chucks her citizenship hearing notice and starts down another destructive and self-destructive path.

Maybe he'll have second thoughts in the morning, or she'll find it anyhow.

So who saw that ending coming? It a way, it affects House more having Wilson suffer cancer than it would for himself to suffer terminal cancer.

I did not see it coming.  I think House is going to take is really hard.  Probably more than anything else in his life so far.

Quite the 1-2 punch delivered to House at the end of this episode. Chark could be my favorite odd couple yet.

A surprise that could only happen for the end of the series.

Chark???   Posted Image   That's awesome!!!


Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

Has House jumped the Chark? (too soon? I'll quit since I'm behind...)

Last night's episode had one of my favorite favorite endings to an hour of television ever. Just perfect.

The Weekend at Wilson's (House's) photos were awesome! Gotta love how we are 8 seasons into this show, and finally what counts as character development for House is showing him giving up is last 6 Vicodin pills for his best friend, Wilson, in Wilson's more dire hour of need during this super-aggressive round of chemo treatments.

I wonder if House and Wilson are headed for a Thelma and Louise type of ending, given last night's episode's nutbuster at the end.

The ending was brutal, but both completely plausible and completely House's fault. I would love a Thelma and Louise style ending for House and Wilson, but my gut tells me the finale will cut to six months later with House released just in time for Wilson's funeral.

It is so funny that other people are talking about a Thelma and Louise ending! That is exactly what popped into my head when House got into the car with Wilson at the restaurant, long before the floor dropped out from under House. Adam, your idea is plausible, but I'm not so sure about Wilson being dead. My money is that he does go for the two week on/two week off chemo in an effort to be there when House gets out. (And to teach him one last lesson.) Naturally House will learn nothing from Wilson's sacrifice, but it would still leave the door open for a T&L finish. Maybe House, Wilson and Thirteen can all run a car off the Palisades in the last shot. :cool: Whatever they do, I'm sure I'm going to enjoy it. I just wish they could have worked Cuddy in somehow. Of course, the real world situation with the actor pretty much made that impossible. (I am looking forward to the other planned cameos, though.) Regards, Joe

I believe that Joe is referring to Lisa Edelstein (Cuddy) leaving the show due to a salary dispute; it is highly unlikely that we will see her character in the 2 hour finale. The final scene in Monday's episode was tough, but completely on House's shoulders. - Walter.
Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

Hard to believe that anybody would try to cover for House after his antics caused a million+ dollars damage to the hospital. (MRI machine's ain't cheap).

Foreman wasn't didn't try for House's sake, he tried for Wilson and all of the lives House could save. If House loses out on the last month's of his best and only friend's life in prison, it will probably destroy him and make him useless to the medical profession. That, in Foreman's eyes, would be a tragedy.

The retrospective special was very good and the actual final episode was an interesting way to end it all.
