In what has become a signature move in the last few episodes, House delivered a heck of a curveball at the end of tonight’s episode. And going into its series finale (next week!) I’m not exactly sure how House is going to work his way out of this one.
Let’s dig into this week’s episode:
We picked up by learning the outcome of the tests Wilson took in last week’s episode: They were not good. “I’m not doing any more chemo,” Wilson declared early on in the episode. He’d shot for a cure, a miracle, he said, but missed by a mile. So he was done. But House was determined not to let him just give up, and the rest of the episode played out like a fun tango between Wilson and House, in which House tried to convince Wilson his life was worth fighting for. After all, House told him, he’d helped so many others do the same.
House even tried to make his point by inviting Wilson’s past patients to the hospital for a big, dramatic scene. Of course, this being House and House, there was a catch: None of the people House presented to Wilson were actual former patients. Now, believe me, the moment (while it lasted) was beautiful. And I was blubbering like an idiot. Then when the truth was revealed, I felt like a fool. I’ll add the moment to the long, wonderful list of other times I, like Wilson, have been duped by Gregory House. READ FULL STORY
