    Wilson will be House's last patient.

    House will get it wrong, Wilson will die. Fill in the blanks after.

    I... I want that to happen and yet feel really bad about it. But I think that might be the only way you can go out on this show.

    If they had saved the Cuddy storyline they could've ended with that. It was a high note, House was seemingly free of addiction, hope for tomorrow.

    But it's stretched out past that, half a season isn't enough to get it back. A "happy ending" will be very hollow. Even a Station Agent ending might be a bit hollow.

    There is no cure for 13.
    Or is there? She has found this experimental cure: reanimation of dead or broken neural connection. Might cure his leg for good.
    He uses 13 as his guinea pig, but something goes horribly wrong....
    BAM! ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE
    13 -> Zombie Zero, Queen of all undead
    House Van Helsing
    Chase with a shotgun.
    Taub must keep the secret that his daughters are minizombies now.
    Wilson disapproves, but goes along with it.

    Seriously J not only are you a monumentally umpleasant person when you start uttering the nonsense that passes for philosophy in your mind (shame on whatever institution you graduated in, and shame on your tutors for creating such a monster), but your sense of humor, such as it is, is awful.

    I've just started rewatching this - missed all of Season 7 I think.

    I'm glad it's finishing, because it's very formulaic. I would enjoy it more if New Pretty Lady Doctor wasn't so annoying. She seems to be an amalgamation of Cameron and an idiot.

    How is Adams' an idiot? She seems fine to me.

    Tremendously judgemental, tactless, intrusive, naive.

    E.g. her constant judgements on her patient's private lives, or her confusion that the blind guy recently was not beatified by his disability.

    I figure I could take a bear.

    She's a saint compared to House. He's got that down to an artform. The last part is a mistake, it doesn't bother me. No-one's perfect.

    She's normal compared to House, but judgemental in a stupid way rather than his intelligent way.

    Well, she isn't as experienced, skilled or highly educated like House is IIRC. She can't be too perfect, either. She's already the prettiest cast member and is nowhere near as fucked up like 13 was. Something's gotta be a flaw.

    Late to this discussion, but I think that's my preferred ending too. That or some sort of "Et tu, Brute?" moment that turns everyone against House permanently, and Wilson turning his back on him being the final straw that breaks him. But similar plotlines have been done before and everything worked out, and I don't have any faith that people responsible for the writing this season could pull off a rehash of an old scenario and make it meaningful.

    The common thread seems to be that the finale needs to focus on House and Wilson's relationship, though. Which I think is best. The show has always been more about the characters than the actual medicine, and House and Wilson's relationship has always been the strongest, most consistent, and most prominent.

    And I'm pretty sure 13's departure at the beginning of this season was meant to be her permanent departure from the show.

    The finale should just be the hospital burns down, not even under suspicious circumstances, just someone flips out over a huge bill and torches the place, or blows it up, or something like that.

    Whole episode is House and Wilson, meandering around, being all philosophical about what this means.

    Even numbered seasons of House end with disasters/action drama; House gets shot, bus crashes, crane collapse. They might be cheap shots for drama, but I usually prefer them to the odd numbered 'quiet' finales! I kinda hope that holds true for season 8. Big disaster, House saves the day, or fails, or dies during it.

    Also I should get caught up on season 8. I liked what little I saw of Charlyne Yi, but then I was like the one guy that liked Masters, so...

    Concur. It's pretty apparent they've been in butt-pulling mode for scripts this season (and the general theme being elaborate trickery among the team members and House has been flat as hell). At this point, one wonders if ending the series last season with Cutty's departure, the crash, and jail wouldn't have been for the best.

    I swear to tiny little baby raptor Jesus that if the end of the series is basically just House euthanizing 13, I will be highly perturbed. There will be nerdrage, outrage, and faces claiming to have been slapped. Hitler will be mentioned, as will Mass Effect 3 and internet petitions.

    It'll end with a fade to black... and then a "19 Years Later" scene with Chase walking his children onto a train.

    Spoiler:

    I just caught up to the latest episodes over the weekend. I stopped somewhere in the middle of last season. I even forgot I read somewhere that Cuddy was leaving. Watching this season - yeah, it might have been better to just end it with the accident. But since they know it will end this season, maybe they do something good with it.

    And boy is Adams gorgeous.

    Other than that House seems to get a little stale, I think it is time to end the show.

    She's nice to look at, but I hate the way the character is written - she feels like an unmotivated, bland Frankenstein's monster made up from former female team mates, so that her only distinguishing feature in the end is her prettiness. (We've only seen the first five episodes of the final season so far, so I'm hoping she'll become more interesting.)
