That was hardly a "twist" - he pulled the same stunt like, 3 episodes before that
The female characters since Cameron have pretty much all been bad (well, 13 was pretty okay), but what the hell is Yi even doing on this show?? I just really dislike the tone of her voice. At least her character is more interesting than Adams (requisite hot doctor who serves no purpose whatsoever)

Well I just used "twist" to avoid being too spoilery, "reveal" was probably more accurate.

So anyway it ended.

Did anything think for even one second the producers of this show would actually end it with him dying? Because I sure didn't. But I'm sure glad they avoided doing anything interesting so they could stunt-cast Kal Penn and Jennifer Morrison and what's-her-face and the other what's-her-face.

House could never be anything other than a jerk. He figured out he had to quit being House.

I was wondering where she was

First 45 minutes were boring, but overall I kinda liked the way the series ended. Though it was definitely on the high end of the "how the hell could he have accomplished all that" scale. It did go nicely against the "everybody changes" theme in the beginning of the show. Also I realize now why they had him get into legal trouble for flushing tickets (no aspect of which made sense) instead of trying to kill a patient, as this way he could get someone to take the fall for him.

Also Camerson trying to convince House to commit suicide was pretty creepy and amazing (the other cameros sucked though)

I was happy to see Kal Penn, if only in shadow.

Suicide causes weight gain.

I read a thing earlier this year that said Lisa Edelstein wouldn't be coming back for any reason, no way no how. I didn't see the finale (or even any of the past season), but it seems wrong to end it without one last bit of Cuddy.

This was kind of bad, apart from Cameron egging him on. Also, surely they could have cobbled together some Cuddy voiceover footage or something at least. Though there was a end-of-show documentary on beforehand on Britisher telly (I guess you got that too?) which Edelstein participated in, so she evidently hadn't completely washed her hands of the whole thing?
Would totally have welcomed a Tritter or a whatever-the-private-detective-that-ended-up-with-Cuddy's-name-was cameo, but they'd probably have arsed that up too.

More cameos definitely would have been cool - the Amber and Kutner parts were all the same kind of boring character studies that the show's been doing for pretty much every single episode. "You care about the puzzle more than you do yourself! The puzzles are what make you live!" Yeah okay, that's good and all, but wasn't that the theme of like 10 other episodes??
Cameron's was pretty awesome though. "You deserve the gift of death" or whatever she said; maybe one of the freakiest moments on the show

Sela Ward has had a lot of work done. Her face is so plastic. Surely getting that level of surgery makes you less likely to get hired as an actress, not more?

I mean, I know *technically* it makes you look less old, but it doesn't necessarily make you look younger. And certainly not better. I agree with everyone that Cameron's cameo was the best one, although I was not pleased to see her hideous slacks 'n' waistcoat combo make a comeback.
