Smash hit medical drama House ended this week, and went out with more of a whimper than a bang. In the last few seasons, the show had developed a limp almost as band as its protagonists', but some of us had high hopes that it would go out with a final flourish, rather than an obvious and cliche (spoiler!) fake death ending. Although I love the idea What Culture writer Chris Swanson brings up in his revie
w that Wilson is actually hallucinating the House we see at the end, I still thought I could do better. Here's my 4 proposals for a House ending...
1. Everybody Dies
It was the name of the episode that promised so much and delivered so little - Everybody Dies. Why not live up to your title and systematically kill off every main character in a series of bizarre co-incidences. Bonus points if you pin it on Masters, the character bought in during the penultimate season to replace 13 and unceremoniously dumped when she returned, and claim she had grown jealous of the time everyone got to spend with House when she got barely over half a season. She locks a bear in Foreman's office, had been secretly planting Plutonium in Wilsons office to give him cancer and does something to 13 that laves her without any clothes. Hey, it can't hurt the ratings.
