I'm sorry but this whole season really let me down, I was holding out hope the finale would bring something to the table that would somewhat save it, but I was severely dissapointed. This has been one of my favorite shows ever, but I just think the writers have lost their touch. I am SO tired of the whole "who is dating who" that every episode seems to center around now. The actual cases are just secondary now, with no clever twist to them, and House himself just doesnt seem to care anymore. The characters go through these supposade life-changing experiences (House's quitting vicodin, Wilson's fiancee dying, Chase killing that dictator, etc.), but then a handful of episodes later they are just back to themselves, like nothing happened. I thought Cuddy ending up with him was THE WORST move they could make. The show thrived on the unspoken relationship the two had, and that nothing was enough to make House stop being the jerk he was and grow up. THATS WHAT THE SHOW WAS. Now thats gone. I know things have to change over time, it just seems now that one episode has very little to do with another.
