With Cuddy gone and House incarcerated only to stir up more trouble with the inmates whilst working a case which leads to him being thrown in solitary in the first episode, onto the unrealistic 2nd episode where obviously House is freed from prison in a bit of a silly fashion to be supervised by none other than the skeptical Dr. Foreman. We here learn that Cuddy has left Princeton Plainsborough almost immediately after House rammed his car into her house in the conclusion to the previous season. Cuddy has never been an important character to me in the show, except in situations when she was required, and as an adversary to houses rule breaking when needed. So she isn't missed that much for me in this final season. This season has some wonderful stories and is mostly made up of stand alone episodes as opposed to multi-episode arcs like normal. We have some very important character development in this season and it doesn't feel rushed or contrived. House has always been over the top in character and storyline, not to mention all these MEGA rare conditions occuring under the one small roof of this one hospital, so people are a bit silly to complain about one unrealistic thing such as the slick, hilarious and utterly over-the-top ending of Season 7.
As we approach the twillight episodes we are confronted with many possibilities of a finale. The finale chosen is just... utterly compelling, and with many memorable moments and a fantastic bonding of two characters. The final episode is emotionally stunning, and as we montage over the lives of all the characters with the wonderful "Warren Zevons' - Keep me in your heart for a while", you will be crying like a baby unless your heart is black and you feel nothing... or are on vicodin haha. And we finish up with a nice tied up ending, leaving nothing to be answered (at least that I can think of) and for a show of its type, has got to be one of... if not THE best ending to a television season I have ever sat and watched. Hugh Laurie and the rest of the cast have kept this whole thing running from start to finish... Especially the chemistry between Robert Sean Leonards' Wilson and the sexual tension between House and Cameron in the earlier seasons (with occasional "will they or won't they moments afterwards"). But lets face it... Hugh made you want to watch it because his character was just so unique and free spirited.
All in all... I'm very satisfied with its ending, but very sad to see it go. Bring on more shows like this Mr. David Shore and crew. And Hugh Laurie... You are a legend dude... ME and EVERYONE reading this want more of you, we want more of your amazing character on the big screen or the small...
