'It's a basic truth of the human condition that everybody lies. Theonly variable is about what'

who thought a show about an extraordinary doctor with an addiction to pain medication would leave me feeling so many emotions?!

so if you didn't get it from the beginning...this post is all about House MD! I have not long finished watching it and I am honestly surprised by how much I fell in love with it! When I first started to watch I really didn't think I would like it this much as I'm not really a lover of medical stuff (too squeamish!) but by the end of it I was completely obsessed!!

If you haven't watched House and you don't want to be spoiled, then I suggest not reading the next part...

Okay so a major theme throughout the show is 'everybody lies' and it is portrayed in most of the episodes, and I am going to tell you about one of these moments that is easily my favourite because it was just so so shocking, and such a big plot twist! 

The episode I am going to be talking about is Season 7, Episode 17, Fall From Grace. 

After two boys accidentally set a homeless man on fire, he gets sent to the hospital. After some tests they find out that he was on heroin, they then scan his abdomen and find some masses...which turn out to be pieces of bone. His explanation to the bone being there was that he has a chef friend that makes him eat weird food, including bone, so that he can get real food. House finally figured out that the vegetarian meals at the hospital were the cause of all his problems and that he has to be on a special diet. The episode ends with the FBI in the mans room, after he has left without checking out, as his DNA set off alarm bells because he is a serial killer who has killed 13 people and then eats his victims!! (Which you then realise is where the bone fragments came from)

That was probably the most shocking ending and became one of my favourite episodes...because from all the scenes beforehand you wouldn't have guessed what he was really like!

It was hard to find a photo that had all the cast members that I want to write about in the next bit, but I found this one which is probably as close as I'll get!

Gregory House- at first you really do think he is just a conceited idiot, but after 8 seasons you just fall in love with his narcissistic ways. For such a serious drama show, I found myself constantly laughing at so many things that he they're always in the exact wrong moments!

Robert Chase- He is Australian so I just knew I would fall in love with him...I didn't realise how much tho! Chase easily became my favourite person! Just certain things he does that aren't the centre of the shot are my favourite! 

Allison Cameron- Well I originally started watching House because Jennifer Morrison is playing Cameron and I just love her! So for the first few season I absolutely adored her! But I feel like after season 4..she just wasn't the same, I'm not sure why but she just seemed completely different. One thing that annoyed me about her was when Chase 'killed' the dictator (something that she actually incinuated doing) she went completely crazy and divorced him??? 

Remy Hadley (Thirteen)- I didn't think I would actually like her as much I did when she first appeared in the show, but as the seasons went on she just became the best! Also her friendship with House was such a good part of the show! 

Amber Volakis- I must admit I definitely didn't like Amber when she first appeared in the show. Like even though she was trying everything to make sure she would actually get the job I just didn't enjoy it, but I think she was actually a good character to that part of the story!

But I am telling you I have not been more shocked or upset at anything compared to Amber's death storyline! When it was revealed she was on the bus..I just shouted at the TV, it was like she was the least likely to be on a bus with House! Then her final scene when she dies was just so sad, I think I would count the fact she is a doctor that made it sadder because when she woke up and saw she was hooked onto that machine, she just knew she would die...and having to watch Wilson turn it off just had me sobbing!!

Lawrence Kutner- Another character that wasn't my favourite when they first started out, but by the end I just couldn't believe he was gone! His death was probably the worst situation with Foreman and Thirteen being the people to find him..I just wish he could've been in more episodes!

James Wilson- Wilson had definitely been one of my favourites! The fact he put up with House's idiotic behaviour for years is truly amazing! He was most likely the nicest character in the show and he really deserved a better ending than he actually got! Having to watch him go through the chemo was beyond heartbreaking! But the little slideshow that House made that was shown at the end of the episode made it way more lighthearted!

So now I'll go onto talking about the relationships of some of the characters whether that be romantic or just platonic. 

Chase & Cameron- From the moment they began I just fell in love! At the beginning they were just so everybody could see they were perfect for each other, and it just took them so so long!!  Once the 'it's Tuesday the day I tell you I want to be with you' started I was just praying that Cameron would finally get it!! Then at the end of season 3 where she finally said it I was just so so happy...which really didn't last for long because they were barely in season 4, and once they became regulars just all went down hill and they ended up divorcing, and that is when my heart broke!!

House & Cuddy- This was the one thing that really didn't make much sense but something that I seemed to want so much!! When it finally happened I was beyond happy...mainly because House was happy, BUT worst thing ever; it was all a hallucination! Having to watch Cuddy with Lucas was just heartbreaking, I was literally just waiting for House & Cuddy to get together! Once they finally did it was so good for the time it lasted...and it probably did have the funniest/shocking ending to any relationship...House driving his car into her house!!

House & Thirteen- This is all about their friendship because they were so good together!! She was like the only one of the fellows that could actually challenge him and him to be shocked or amazed by her comeback! Such a pivotal moment in their friendship was Thirteen's huntington's storyline, from the beginning with House figuring it him saying that when the time comes he would help her shows that he actually cared for her!

The finale!! Well I think it was such a great episode! So well thought out and it played out so well onscreen aswell! 

One of the best parts of the final episode was when House was sort of showed the four people who meant the most to him. 

I feel like he was seeing Kutner because he feels bad that he never realised he was suicidal and thought that he could've  helped him. He was seeing Amber because he felt guilty over her death, because it was all because of him that she was on the bus and he thought she should have a say in whether he dies or not. He was seeing Stacy because she was the woman he was inlove with and finally Cameron because she loved him even when he was horrible, because she could see the good in him!

Another part of the finale I loved was Chase becoming the Head of Diagnostics, it only seemed fair seeing as he had been there from the beginning and had gone through so much. 

House's funeral (although it was fake, but nobody knew that) was just heart wrenching, hearing all the nice things that they had to say about thing I wish would be that Cuddy could've been would've just proved how much she loved him even after the car situation! 

The best part of the finale was that you got to see that even though for the past 8 seasons House has been shown as a self centered idiot, he is the bestest friend that anybody could ask for. This is proven when he gives up his entire life so that Wilson wouldn't have to spend his last months alive alone and so that he could be with him when he dies.
