i thought house would die but when he did my mind was saying it's a set up and he was going to pop out somewhere, or the phoen was in the ash urn
i felt the return of the old characters was good but like others have said no cuddy ?
as for the patient it was never explained why house was with him in the 'fire' unless that point was cut out and we left speculating they went to get high as final send off but some how set fire to theplace or that was a coincidental arsenist ?
and i would of thought the parole officer would of been a bit quicker to send house back to prison...
then we have a touching end with the two men on bikes about to explore the highway..
and foreman working out house ain't dead..
