UPDATE: Spoilers of House Season Finale – Post airing Via: Ausiello
WARNING: Stop reading if you have not watched tonight’s episode of House. I mean it. Everyone else, onward and downward…
Deep breaths, Huddy fans. Deep breaths.
Among the many bombshells dropped in tonight’s House season finale was the discovery that last week’s massively hyped-by-me hookup between House and Cuddy, um, Never. Actually. Happened.
It was nothing more than a figment of House’s Vicodin-soaked, Kutner-grievin’, Amber-obsessed imagination.
Feeling a little duped, eh? Join the club. Much like you, I figured there’d be a twist, but I honestly didn’t think it would be of the hallucinatory variety. (I was only recently tipped off about this development, hence the vague warning I included in Ask Ausiello.) Of course, looking back, the signs were there. Series creator David Shore was always very careful to qualify his comments about Huddysex. Take a look:
“Yes, we have figured out the details surrounding Huddy having sex,” Shore told us last January, before adding, “It definitely won’t be what people expect. We have to do things our way, the House way. We wouldn’t want to have the characters do anything out of character.”
Two months later, Shore was equally as cagey about the impending romp. “I really don’t want to go into the particulars of [them hooking up] because we have found a really cool way to do it, and I don’t want to spoil it. But I will confirm that we are taking things forward [with them].”
Bottom line: Technically, Shore didn’t lie. But he was playing me us a little. (BTW, both Shore and exec producer Katie Jacobs declined to be interviewed for this story.)
Other major developments in tonight’s finale and the questions they raised:
• Chase and Cameron got hitched! Will it last? Will it lead to more screen time for the underused docs next season? Will Jesse Spencer make good on his (presumably tongue-in-cheek) threat to walk? (Nope to that last one; a rep for the actor confirms he’ll be back next season as a series regular.)
• Kutner came back to life… in House’s head! Did Obama have to sign off on the cameo?
• As we suspected, a downward spiraling House checked into a psychiatric/rehab facility! How long will he stay there? Might he bump into Wilson’s brother while he’s there? Will he pass the time by having more imaginary sex with Cuddy?
So many questions, so much time to ponder them in the comments section below (four months to be exact.) And while you’re down there, tell me what you thought of the finale. Love it? Hate it? Out for blood? Start spillin’!
