And yes, that ending did feel a little out of place and weirdly tacked-on. Cuddy spent, like, 55 minutes of this episode wanting nothing to do with House and insisting that she didn't love him, only to run in at the last minute with a "just kidding!" But I liked it anyway. I think it's because I wasn't expecting it. I thought we were going to see another House breakdown and more depression and torture but instead, and at House's lowest point, we actually got something hopeful and positive and happy. It's the best way this season could have ended, I think. It's not the writers' fault that Katie Jacobs ruined their plans for the season by running into the writers room last year saying "HEY GUYS CHECK IT OUT BE SURE TO HAVE HOUSE PINE AWAY FOR CUDDY ALL OF THE SUDDEN AND ALSO I HATE JENNIFER MORRISON NOW SO GET RID OF CAMERON THE MOST NONSENSICAL AND ABRUPT WAY POSSIBLE EVEN THOUGH HER CHARACTER JUST GOT MARRIED TO CHASE AND OH BY THE WAY WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE FIRST TWO HOURS OF THIS SEASON TAKE PLACE IN A MENTAL HOSPITAL AND IT WILL BE A GORGEOUS AND STUNNING EPISODE BECAUSE I'M DIRECTING IT. MAKE IT WORK" and then left them there to figure it out. And yes, I think she speaks in all caps. And that she then ran right back in the room with this: "P.S. WRITE A PART FOR MY DAUGHTER K THANKS BYE" and left again. Even with those handicaps, they ended the season the way they always do: leaving me looking forward to the fall and what will happen next.
