Did House Have a Happy Ending?
The medical drama House, which ran for eight seasons, ended in 2012. But did House have a happy ending? The answer is yes. House gets his happy ending with Wilson and, perhaps more importantly, there’s the implication that he’ll be okay once his friend is gone.
The show’s finale, “Everybody Dies,” sees House and Wilson embark on a road trip, and House ultimately makes the decision to turn himself in to the police. He knows that Wilson is dying and that he will soon be gone, but House also knows that he can survive without him.
The episode ends with House in jail, but it’s not a sad ending. Instead, it’s a hopeful one. House is finally taking responsibility for his actions and is making the decision to turn his life around. He’s also finding a way to cope with the loss of his best friend.
The finale also sees House and Wilson’s relationship come full circle. In the pilot episode, House and Wilson meet for the first time, and in the finale, they say goodbye. It’s a bittersweet moment, but it’s also a reminder that House and Wilson’s friendship was strong enough to survive anything.
Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly wrote that “House had, in its final seasons, become a rather sentimental show” and the final episode was a “satisfying” and “fitting ending.” He also noted that the show’s writers had managed to give House a happy ending without sacrificing the show’s realism.
The show’s creator, David Shore, also spoke about the finale, saying that it was important to him that House’s ending be “true to the character.” He wanted to make sure that House was still House, and that he wasn’t suddenly a different person.
Overall, House had a happy ending. House gets his happy ending with Wilson and, perhaps more importantly, there’s the implication that he’ll be okay once his friend is gone. House’s ending is a reminder that it’s possible to survive even the most difficult of circumstances. It’s a fitting end to a show that was always about hope and resilience.
