For a change, the patient was interesting. The guy has a split personality, due to brain surgery to correct his epilepsy, and now starts exhibiting some kind of bizarre illness, the kind that House cherishes. The soap opera part of the finale, involving House and Cuddy and Chase and Cameron, was far less interesting. In the previous episode, it appeared House and Cuddy finally got it on while Chase and Cameron might not be getting married. But wait: Is that the late Bobby Ewing we see in the shower? DALLAS fans will understand what I just said and be able to apply it to House and Cuddy's apparent joining. Anyhow, twas not a great season finale by any means, although the guy with the split brain was pretty entertaining, especially when he viciously slaps his poor girlfriend upside the head. And Carl Reinmer of all people has a cameo as a clinic patient who may have more going on than meets the eye, if House will only pay attention. But with its false fits and starts and very messy and even maudlin ending, this finale to the 5th season likely will cost HOUSE some viewers down the road. Frankly, five seasons of this is enough. Let's not see it go the way of ER, which ran out of gas about the same time yet limped on for several more years, jumping sharks every which way.
