House: Series Wind Down Thread (Series Discussion, Spoilers!)

Since the series is winding down, these threads don't get much traffic anymore I'm just going to start one last "House" thread and be done with it.

I figured it wouldn't be on tonight due to the College Basketball championship game but, alas, it is on.

Tonight - Apirl 2, 2012:

8x15 "Blowing the Whistle"

From TV.com:

An Army veteran charged with treason is brought to the hospital for treatment, but refuses to cooperate unless the military give him and his brother information about their father. Meanwhile, Adams asks Wilson and her teammates for help when she suspects that House is concealing an illness

The hot girl from Breaking In.

Maybe he is dying, and predisastering their suspicion by telling them the truth but making it seem like a lie.

Double bastard.

The replacement Thirteen. She's one of House's new fellows who previously worked in the infirmary of the prison House was in at the start of the season. She followed him back to New Jersey to be part of his team when he was paroled due to the necessity of his Mad Doctoring Skillz. She's from a rich background and somewhat stuffy and repressed. Sort of a mix of Cameron and Thirteen.

There's another new fellow in Parks, a mousy Asian girl assigned to House's team when she was awaiting disciplinary action from an incident her previous department. She's part Masters (in that Parks is somewhat brilliant and socially awkward) and part Chase (in that she's a punching bag for House).

Foreman has replaced Cuddy as the Dean of Medicine, in charge of running PPTH.

Mousey?

She punched her last boss in the nose and landed him on his ass.

Don't let the hair cut fool you, she's a fire cracker.

Well, her overall behavior and demeanor is a bit mousy but as House has suggested, someone more interesting lurks deep in her.

I believe she claimed to have had 36 sexual partners.

Considering she still lives at home, that's very impressive.

But i suppose what she does behind locked car doors is under the surface.

Any truth to the rumor that they got Michael Bay to write and direct the finale?

The deal fell through.

Hugh Laurie wouldn't let Bay suck his winkle.

She's also knows as the "Bookie-monster".

Re: House: Series Wind Down Thread (Series Discussion, Spoilers!)

Even though it felt off the whole time (especially considering how convenient it was), I'm disappointed that Wilson didn't actually have an 11-year old son all the sudden. That would have been a nice dynamic if only for a few more remaining episodes. Alas.

This one was pretty dumb. I'm getting so tired of the cliche of "the whole subplot is just House lying to screw with someone/teach the a lesson," which was the case with both plots here to an extent. It kind of renders the whole story a waste of time if none of it is real.
